Hello all, i just bought a new Z4 a few weeks back and although its a quick car with good torque all thorughout the powerband, I NEED MORE! i have been googling the web for sites that might carry SOME type of mod for a new Z4. My search has been unsucessful. I was wondering if anyone knew of any good site that would carry parts for a Z4 , something that would even be half as good as pfyc.com or zzperformance.com for all you grand prix owners.

2.2 or 3.0?

<span style='color:blue'>&quot;So my BM makes me a flash bastard? Then I guess you're just keeping it real from the seat of your nova?&quot;</span>

<span style='color:gray'>&quot;...and the home of the brave..... is bravey 130bhp from a 7 litre engine? 100bhp/litre or don't bother building it!&quot;</span>

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>

I too am just about to take ownership of a Z4 3.0. As quick as it is, which is ok, more power would be far better as long as it does not screw up the warrantee.

Any help very appreciated!!

Cheers

white G u made typo (i hope) its 2.5 or 3.0 and i have a 3.0. And to the ladder, yes any engine mod that makes ur car go faster will void the warranty that is the downside, which is why many people wait a couple years before modding most sports cars. BMW make some of the best engines in the world so u gotta take ur risk and hope that u dont get the one in a million lemon car lol. and i dont kno why bmw even makes the z4 in the 2.5 liter. As far as im concerned the 2.5 is pussy and is a waste of damn money... my suggestion 3.0 or m3.

No typo... You obviously don't get the 2.2 in the US! I forgot about the 2.5(http://www.bmwworld.com/models/z4/22i.htm)

(Just being picky because of your ^comment It is LATTER as in the later one, not LADDER which are steps.

They make smaller engine variants because they are a euro car maker and there is a market for them.

There is a world of difference between a 3.0 and an M3..... so that must mean that you are a pussy too! (j/k, just chill with the comments which might offend)

Back on topic>>> Some of the quality tuners will offer their own warranty in place of the one they viod by modding. Nothing is ever going to be as solid as the BM warranty but it's a good second.

I got the 3.0 with SMG and love it.... I drove a 2.5 with Step shortly afterwards and thought it was sluggish.

The aftermarket turners are slow bringing out the mods it seems but just give it some more time and they'll come.
