Lucid, your Z4M looks very, very sexy.

The RAC's match up with the M3 nicely.

First off your RG63's look great and both your cars are beautiful congrats! I have two questions, what suspension do you have on your car(stock)? Is that a V1 in the ashtray ? Thanks

Both Cars Look Great

Thanks for posting these pics. I've been anticipating them since they were discussed on the RAC Group Buy thread.

Dude I love those pictures, they are two beautiful looking cars.

On the M3, I LOVE that V1 hidden display placement. What shop did you take it to for that?

Thanks for the comments. The suspension is stock. The roads around here are bad enough that I really don't want to lower it much. I am considering the Dinan springs since this preserves suspension travel.

It is a V1 in the ashtray. I hardwired the V1 using a fusetap to get power and then ran the concealed display in the ashtray. This is very simple - you just need to drill a hole in the bottom of the ashtray.

The other mods are not so visible. I've installed an air filter, Euro spec aspherical mirrors and Alekshop video unit with front and rear cams.

I did it myself. Very easy to do. You just need to drill a hole in the bottom of the ashtray and run the wire to the fuse box area. I hardwired the V1 with a fusetap to get power so the cords were already there. There is a piece of black felt on the bottom of the remote unit that ensures that it doesn't rattle. The ashtray lid closes so it can be completely hidden.

Kudos to Lucid for the great pics. His camera is much superior to mine.

His Z4M is really cool. Totally different cars but each great in their own way.

I still own an M3! It's going through a stroker 2.5L rebuild as we speak.

The Z4M coupe is one of the nicest looking BMWs ever. It is certainly the nicest looking of all the Bangled cars. That's a great combination -- the M3 as a DD and the Z4M as a weekend car. Thanks for the pics and enjoy!

"ersin; That's a great combination -- the M3 as a DD and the Z4M as a weekend car."

The combination is a little more complicated. Lucid has the Z4M, a E30 M3 track car and a Ford SUV - his E92 M3 made way for the Z4M. I have the E92 M3 and a E70 X5 35d. Together a great collection!

And I think you should get the new GT3 so that I can drive one finally!

Thanks

There are the RAC63 wheels from the first group buy (see the epic thread in Wheels and Tires). They are 9.5 X 19 front and 10 X 19 rear. The tires are 255/35/19 and 275/35/19.

Lucid has a set of RAC63 in the same color that he is looking to sell.

However, the RAC63 are too nice to be winter wheels. I'm thinking of using my stock 19"s as winter wheels.
