Stepping out from the comforts of the heated area and into the chilly Tokyo winds, I decided to have a walk around the parking area and was greeted with bimmers that had either a Studie AG touch to it or a full blown street-GT looking varient.
At the front of the area is the green Z4 wearing the exact same kit as the old Super GT Z4.
After conversing with the shop manager, I realised that its a daily driven car by one of its stuff. Dayum, what a daily!
Check out the massive rear fenders.
Having an interior that is part race car, part italian inspired. Roll caged but with tan leather seats that seems it came of an italian hand bag of some sort.
The dash is also color coded and what you see there is no longer a standard BMW Z4 meter cluster but one that has been replaced by a STACK unit with a carbon surround.
To top things off, a D shaped steering wheel with buttons that I have no idea do what except for things like DSC. Remember, 1 Japanese and 1 Singaporean that dont speak the language.
Color coded half cage and a thick carbon fiber rear tower bar together with a pair of Takata harness to keep the driver and passenger in place.
Parked just a couple of cars away is the newer E89 Z4 that has Itasha decals and a bodykit that looks like one that is being used for the current GT car that is still running in the series.
Downforce the carbon splitter mated to the front facial.
Gotta love those aero mirrors.
Please dont tell me needs moar low, because if its any lower, I believe the rear diffusers will be trading some asphalt with the roads.
Another customer’s Alpina 5 series.
Overall a very enjoyable trip to the shop and with the helpfulness of stuff, I managed to get an insight of their brand and they even ship parts over to Singapore for local BMW lovers.
And a kick ass slogan. We were born 2 run.
