I am not getting the ZCP package after all since i am not going to track my car hardcore every week. Plus our roads are bad and plenty of pot holes. I don't need any stiffer ride. However I might buy the CF parts after market later on. Still debating....

Keep in mind ZCP includes EDC which will allow you to set your suspension to the same soft settings that you'll have without ZCP.

its got slightly lower and assume stiffer springs though. I still agree I doubt it will be much stiffer then stock but some people probably think stock is too stiff.

Not sure what the price is CAD, but it was only USD$300 more to get ZCP (US$2500 total).

I'd say order it. Do you like how the wheels look? They're the 359M model y-spokes. I like them, reminds me of the Transporter.

I'd guess it won't be more than CAD$400.

I am not a fan of the carbon parts....... But definitely like the look of these wheels on the Silverstone Sedan. Do the ZCP...... you could always trade someone for the 220M 19's if it turns out you don't like them.

BTW: the roads in Halifax are really not that bad....... they are just as good or better than any other Canadian City.

Yeah. I guess what I am saying is that if you go test drive a non-ZCP M3 with 19" wheels and find that it rides fine on your local roads with EDC set to "Comfort" mode then you are probably good to go on that front. I am betting that if you later repeat that same test with a ZCP M3 you won't even be able to tell the difference.

Yeah - I'm under the impression that they are sold by BMW performance and will be available individually in a few months. I checked on them a few weeks ago and they weren't yet available for the m3...dealer did tell me there is a similar product for the 335 with the m package (different front spoiler) and they sold for $250 ea.

CF parts always look better on white. that why i ordered my ZCP M3 in white with the carbon parts. plus i'll throw a CF diffuser to match the mods and compliment my Akrapovic exhaust

I like how the CF parts make the trunk look more aggressive. The front lip parts do the same, but the effect isn't as pronounced.

The splitters are available and being shipped. There is another thread here in the cosmetic mod forum with pics of installed splitters.

Thanks for the pics. Wish they had a coupe ZCP on display. I love the wheels.

I really don't like those wheels at all, especially on lighter colors.
