Thanks guys I'm glad you like it smile

Sorted my interior over the weekend for Nurburgring too.



Much nicer place to be now!
Very nice.

I'm thinking of going with an E46 M3 myself and that sort of 'club sport' look is what I would want.

Thanks.

Its on Suplex springs and Bilstein B4 dampers, which are supposed to be m-sport equivalent, but better/stronger springs and dampers a slight improvement on the standard items.

Its also had poly bushes to f&r anti-roll bars, new Meyle HD drop-links and a proper fast-road alignment at a respected motorsport place.

Made a big, big difference to the drive and pleased with the results!

Lovely. I'm sure I've seen that on the Z4 forum.

Very nice! What I was looking for, before settling on my 120i as I couldn't find a decent 130i.

Can you disable the passenger airbag on yours? (I see a child seat there.)

Yeah i snapped it up. Was only for sale for about a day.

No idea on airbag. It's a front facing booster seat though, so airbag deactivation isn't required...but now you've got me questionning myself ..

Mine has a blanking plate where the switch should be, so my son just sits in the back.

Lovely car! I keep looking at these as a potential replacement for my 325ti, but then I do get an N52 fix in my Z4 Coupe!

On the airbag question, open the passenger door and look at the end of the dash - if it can be turned off there will be a key-slot visible (my 123d had that feature).

Cheers for the heads-up about the airbag guys. I just assumed at 7yrs old he'd be ok in the front on a booster. It seems maybe not

Not usually a fan of 'non round' wheels but that looks great!

Thank you. The car is going for a a long stint to the finest specialist in the uk to make it close to perfection. Doesn't make any sense financially but hey, since when owning an E34M5 make sense for your wallet!! biglaugh
