Thanks for your comments!

I really dont have much modification plans yet, maybe smaller wheels for better handling. I have been searching for style 103 alloys and i will then buy fresh set of 225/45/17 premium tyres. Those 18" dunlops are old, dot markings from 2007 or so..
One thing which would be quite cheap and easy to do is low beam hid modification. For service i have full set of vanos seal replacement parts waiting, but i wait when my mechanic friend will have time to help me. Z4 is so difficult to do compared to E46 which is not difficult at all.

We have now winter here so i will take this car out of garage beginning of may.
