SviRu black venom

Post by sviru » Wed 24 Sep, 2014 22:53

Hi guys.

I own z3 a couple years now... so it's time to introduce it to everyone ;).

Engine: 2.8
Year: 2000
Color: 303
Chrome Line
M suspension, M steering wheel, etc.

Worth mentioning mods (some not:) :
- AC Schnitzer TYPE 3 rims 18inch, 8.5inch
- Rieger bumper addon.
- Wiessman hardtop.
- Sport radio antena
- Led registration plate lights

Plans:
-hamann side skirts
- z3m bumper or carline CM
- angel eyes
- better audio

I have an element of 'M-styling' on my car, If that's a good enough reason for the manufacturers to adorn a 320 with the M badge, then its certainly a good enough reason for me..

Nice car, almost facelifted twin of mine :) Next season I plan to replace my carline bumper with m bumper and install hamann side skirts.

Lovely looking car, I think the lines of the Wiesmann hardtop look great and really suit the Z.

I must agree! At the beginning I didn't notice any major differences with OEM hardtop... but now... yes it is much better looking!
Still hamann hardtop is top of the top ;)

OEM for me every time, unless you can get the set that Shanty made, now they were cool.

P.S. don't go putting you wipers on though as you are missing a wiper blade :)

That is one very, very nice looking zed :thumb:

Like the look of the angel eyes, but also like the look of it with standard headlights.

And them wheels are probably the greatest looking wheels that anyone could ever fit to their zed. I would love a set :)

Love it! I wouldn't change the headlights personally, standard or OEM+ if you were to add your own projector lights in the standard housing. I'm working on my own atm, but I'm going slow!

What's it lowered on? Definitely not standard!

- I must agree! But... after purchase I wasn't so sure... they didn't look so cool then. After placing them on car - different story!

Wow- this is a great looking Zed. :D Great shine, but keep car as in top photo.

The Carline bumper is ugly :head: and just takes away from a stunningly beautiful car.

heh! It's nice! I must admit that when I bought it I didn't know the difference between oem and wiesmann one...
After a year I can see some serious one. It just looks much better. Still Hamman v2 is NO1 when it comes to hardtops ;)

The only thing I hate about this hardtop is this rubber seal around the rear window... it's absolutely awful. I wonder if there is any way to get rid of it.

Every time someone fits ACS wheels to a Z3, God resurrects a kitten. :) Great looking car!!

My 2p: Keep the original bumper, I quite like the "big mouth" version of the Z3 bumper. Maybe just add splitters/lips to the sides of the bumper, for more aggressive stance. Also, keep the original headlights - they look much better than the aftermarket angel eyes, IMHO. Only mod I'd do to the lights is to add halos for the "big" angel eye effect.

1. I don't like 2.8 bumper. It looks like an old Transformers type thing. It doesn't follow the nice curves of the car. It is very heavy and bulky ;) It makes the car look unaggressive opposite to z3m bumper.
With my rieger lip (sold) it looks much much better - but still it sucks compared to z3m. And z3m with acs splitters - cmon! But ofc - imho only ;)

2. :) Led AngelEyes in oem lights. Image

I like it - but then I'm biased... People who like these changes are in the minority, just remember.... It's your car - your opinion. And if you keep the original then you can always revert it back if needed whenever you sell it
