Different strokes for different folks.
or change the front splitter to a Arqray front lip.

not that the sideskirt itself don't look good, but they sat too low compare to the front and rear. now if the front is the arqray lip it would visually line up the front and the side.

Thanks bro! I decided at the last minute to hit up this meet but the only bad thing is you have to get there EARLY (6:45 to 7am) to get a decent parking spot.

I was parked next to Chase at that meet but I guess he didn't take any pics of our cars together.

Fern was the one who gave me the electronic file to have someone local make the decal for me. I initially asked him if he had a blue/silver one but told me that I'd have to have that custom made locally.

So yes he was perfectly fine with it.

Yeah, I hear you. Splitters are epoxied on too, so I'd prefer to leave them on. Thought about the arqray lip but with that lip it would be better to have it molded on... I'd be scared I'd bump into something and have to replace the entire bumper with the molded lip, lol.

I'm thinking I may go with either Prior Design front bumper or M3 bumper for sedan that Modbargains sells. If I do the M3 bumper I may go with the Hamann style CF lip that goes underneath the bumper.

Haha... you must have missed what I wrote earlier... car is in "winter mode" in terms of my coilover height. I had my winter wheels on up until Bimmerfest in August then put my summer DPE wheels back on... didn't bother to have my mechanic lower the coilover height since I figured I'd be putting my winter wheels back on soon. But yeah, car will be lowered come next spring.

I bought coilovers for my old e46 and now I have coils on my e86. Both times I bought them with the intention of raising it up for winter. Haven't done that once. Loving the car though. I gotta meet up you ep mid atlantic people some day.

Thanks Bro! Would be great to meet up with you... love your Z4 by the way!

Yeah, I hear you about the coilovers... in my case I didn't lower them mainly because with my medical condition I have to pay my mechanic each time to do this so I figured I'd save the money and just live with the raised height for now, lol.
