When was the last time you saw a “well fitted” BMW Z3? It’s certainly been a few months for us. As a matter of fact the last time we saw one it happened to be out Europe, just like this one. Actually the only Z3 we can think of here in the states is the one that Fluid MotorUnion out of Illinois built about a year or so ago. But let’s focus back on Ziyaads ride before we get carried away. It’s our second feature of the year & first ever Z3 and we are very excited to share it with you! Ziyaad previous ride (VW MKIV) is what brought him closer into the car scene where he really started personalizing it and meeting other fellow car enthusiasts. It wasn’t until he was given an opportunity to blog for a local site (LowLifeUK) that he really got into the “fitment” scene.
Ziyaad did a great job keeping the exterior clean and simple regardless of all the changes and additions. Up front he added a small yet effective front splitter along with “black kidney grills”, tow hook and smoked side markers. He also all red tail lights with yellow fog lenses which we love very much. Take a look at the photo below though! It features a quick release deep dish suede Steering wheel and a freaking fuel filler nozzle gear shifter. You gotta love creativity and uniqueness! Let us know what you think of the gear shifter in the comment box below.
That brings us to what attracted us to this Z3 the most. The way it sits. Those beautiful wheels are made by a company called Image (HT 3 piece splits) sized at 17×8.5″ all around with 205/40/17 up front and 225/40/17 rears. Suspension wise it sits on Prosport coilovers with custom rear springs and stance solutions static+ kit on the front. It may not be throwing around sparks (though it probably still does on those UK roads) left and right but it sits just right in our opinion. Lastly Ziyaad added a K&N panel filter to the 2.8 Straight 6 M52 motor and a Longlife custom cat-back exhaust system. As always, make sure you hit the Read More link below for more photos!
“Future plans on this awesome Z3 include a few interior changes, new sound install and improvement of the rear fitment.” Big shout out to Jason Easton for hooking us up with these awesome photos as well as Ziyaad for allowing us to share his beautiful ride with our fans.
