Mein Auto: 2012 Z4 3.5s
2012 Z4 3.5s Front Facia

I just got my Z4 and was wondering about updating the front facia. I have already ordred the matte black kidneys to replace the chrome ones. What about the bottom spots where fog lights would resolve. There is some silver units down there, but it looks black behind them. Can they be removed? What does it look like? Can I put fog lights there? I want to remove that stoxk silver part. Any Recommendations?

Just mask it off and spray it with what ever color you are interested in. 6.99 from AutoZone or some place like that.

Just mask well it will save you a lot of headaches later.

Hi ! BMW z4 E89 = no front fog lights and no way to retrofit !!! You could consider an M sport front end buy one cheap !!!! I changed my chrome grills for Black, they are gloss and not that expensive from BMW (makes a change)......When you spray them as soon as you get stone chips then the under colour starts to show which I personally is a cheap look!!!

I was able to order a part through BMW that will replace the stock silver part. It cost 16 bucks for the pair and 50.00 for labor. They look awesome and will look even better when I replace the kidney grills.
