Mein Auto: 1997 Z3
New Member

Posted in the main area yesterday, but should have posted here. Here is my 1997 Z3. I have added a chrome cold air intake, removed the fog lights and made custom grills instead, and changed the center grill to a black mesh style. I added a front lip and painted rear wing as well as a polished Magnaflow muffler. I have a performance clutch with solid cast flywheel.

To the Forum. Take some pix of your modifications.. (except the clutch ) It would be interesting to see what you have done.

You should watch your rear in there sir! If that attachment is indeed your own Z3. That rear camber is gonna come back and bite one of these days. To be honest with it, you might just want to look at replacing your rear shocks, that's what's done the trick for me.

Welcome to the forum bud, hope you enjoy.

rear camber

Actually the car photo was taken by a photographer with a lens that distorted the whole car. Notice how long the front end looks also. This was at a Carolina Super Cars event. (They have a website with photos of our members, some expensive cars in the club). A print shop made posters of the cars. This photo is mine.

What kind of front lip did you get and where did you get it? Wanted to do the same on my Z3.

The OP hasn't been on the forum in four years so I doubt you will get a response. My guess is that is it a generic lip like All-Fit
