Was wondering if there was a thread with members cars or something similar? I'm thinkin of buying a Z4 this year and wanted some insight into subtle mods people do. I don't mean anything drastic as like the original look but sometimes a few small touches go a long way.

If there isn't a thread already maybe a good idea to put one up? Perhaps post up you're two favourite pictures of your car?

Thnx, Jason

one of the best visual things you can do is get rid of the amber indicators all round.. these make the cars look SO dated.. or just get one where this has already been done! :)

example AFTER:

Useful. I've got a Z4 '05 and I'm getting the rear amber lights and side indicators changed to clear but haven't found any place or advice regarding changing the front lights. Would prefer to go through a BMW or local trusted garage in the South East.

Could you give me any further insight?

never done or been involved in this conversion on a Z4 - but a quick google throughs up some results:

just make sure you get RHD versions..:thumbsup FWIW - I think the clear headlights are around £700 from the dealers iirc..

Had a look at the links they're pretty useful, however I've read a number of times that the amber colouring on the front headlights is actually a legal requirement for UK cars.

Never read that before?? Your indicator needs to flash Amber.. But you don't need to display Amber lenses as far as I know.. Otherwise they'd be a lot of illegal cars on the road.. (including mine!!)
