New Z4 in Different Color/Wheel Combos

Different Color/Wheel combos I was playing around with in Photoshop. The new design is great IMO and looks good with just about anything. Inside and Out, I think its a big improvement over the current model and addresses the key areas which I always hated.

My e46 is parted out now and I wasn't thinking Z4 as a replacement, but now I'll consider it for sure! I'm partial to Black of course, but the Blue with a Saddle/Cinammon interior could look really good!

How does someone in LA become a Buc fan? I'm curious.

I am partial to the dark blue with brown interior that you did in the original post. A shot that shows the tail end like the one below would be great, with the top down if possible.

Well, we don't have an NFL team here of course. I used to root for the Rams, but they left. I hate the 49ers cause they used to always beat up on the Rams, and I never really liked the Chargers or Raiders. So I started rooting for teams that never won or haven't won in a long time. When the Bucs changed their orange sherbert uniforms to what it is today, AND they retooled their defense to one based on speed and good tackling (except for the recent Carolina game), I got to liking them. Too bad Monte Kiffin's leaving. That's gonna hurt.

Uh, OK. It'd be alot easier if I find a pic with the top down already of course. I will try.

There were some great Ram teams in LA. I remember in '79 the Bucs beat the Rams here to go 5-0. The teams met again in the Conference Championship game, this time the Rams being the victors 9-0. That, in just the forth season, was the high water mark for that Bucs for many years to come.

Losing Kiffin is going to hurt. He has put together killer defenses here year after year. Many fans here hope that Marinelli will get fired in Detroit and come back as the DC.

Top up or top down really doesn't matter. Whatever works for you.

Um...0-14 with a good chance at going 0-16? I *think* he's going to get canned there.

Here you go. You can't really see the seats from here, but I did match the wheels from the front view :

Oh yeah! This is perfect. I'll take mine just like that. Wow!

I heard on a national radio sports talk show that the only change would be the one at Gen. Mgr., and that while any other team would "clean house from top to bottom, this is Detroit." I suspect that you are correct and that this host is lost in space.

Another PShop with some minor edits: an M3 style front bumper and sides, a wider rear track, a bit lower, with Concept CS wheels, clear turn signals, painted reflectors, and the antenna in the rear removed.

Even better, I've just changed my order. Damn, that's beautiful!

Just noticed that the new Z4 doesn't have side lights for indicator/running lights (or are they hidden somehow ?).

OK, just figured it out. They're hidden in the little recess on the side. Very neat!

Looks amazing in either black or white, the red insert wheels on the red car in your earlier post would look awesome on either the white or black Z4.

Thanks for letting me see what it looks like in white and black
