    Cool Slammed Z3

    Hello there! I'm new around here, and I'll start posting this build project from the beginning. My beloved BMW Z3, bagged just a couple of days ago.


    As she came to me.



    After a few changes...






    And this is how she looks now

    Looks good. I would only get rid of the eyelids on the headlights.

    Ever think about chopping the windshield a bit lower?

    I think that would look insane!

    I can dig everything but those headlights and eyebrows. The headlights look too small for the car( there is a significant gap around the entire light) so i'd def change them back out but damn does it look good slammed.

    What air suspension you did you go with?

    That gap around the headlights is a problem I had after disassembling the front bumper, gotta fix that.

    I use a brazilian brand named Castor.

    The compressor and valves are under the hood, and the air tank is in the cabin, between the seats. Later I'll do some photos of the installation.

    This thing looks great. For the front headlight fitment, you need to adjust your front bumper and get rid of the "eyelids". Otherwise the car looks great.

    You need to post this in the Z3 section. There has been discussion of air ride on the Z3 in the last couple of days.

    Looks good.

    I agree, you need to get those eyebrows off there. Add some spacers, and get a hardtop

    Your car would look sooo much better if those BBS RKs were wider and more aggressive OP... and I have a solution for that.

    I am selling my RKs:

    It looks so good. Just some alignment on the front end is all it really needs.

    The wheel fitment is nice. On bagged cars I prefer to see the wheels set in like yours rather than flush or poke... the car ends up sitting lower.

    True, I'm afraid if I go flush, the car will not lay frame.

    I'll post my project in the Z3 section Thanks!

    ^Looks great. I think you should paint the side vent panel black.
