Car is looking great! I like the exhaust tips with titanium finish showing through, breaks the black up a bit. Hopefully be doing the same to mine soon enough.
Amazing attention to detail on this car and well done to sticking it out and doing everything 100% properly, no short cuts at all Thumbs

Even though I am not a massive fan of red fist-type (standard) calipers, this is the proper way to do it.

I hate it when someone sprays over everything.

Well done on the effort

Thanks man.

I took advantage of the special they were running so I pad R2600 for the pair.

RE: 2009 Z4 35i Let the DIY and slight cosmetic modding begin.
I forgot to mention that I took my car for another Dyno last week to see how the car is running with the new turbos and all the stock parts put back into the car.

The car seems to be running a little stronger than before as I am now making 421nm instead of 402nm.

Car is running stock software, stock intercooler, stock charge pipe. I only have down pipes.

So I think she is running quite well.

Just read your entire thread - Sorry to see all the nonsense you had to deal with at the beginning, but it seems well worth it with the latest results!
