    Very nice ABT.

    The engine is a beaut. The z4 has to be lighter than the M3?

    I think I read somewhere that it's 75kg lighter

    Also has the CSL brakes as standard.

    I like it because it's a good looking car in a subtle kind of way.

    Heavier than I expected it to be.

    CSL brakes are fairly awesome, so much better than the standard M3 stuff, shame there weren't any rasonably priced CS's about when I was looking

    I really do like the E46 M3 CS...if I could only have one car that would be a serious contender.

    CSL price going further away though!

    The CSL brakes were the draw for me, the wheels I can take or leave

    I've got AP's now so meh

    Along with slight lowering and a set of Style 260M wheels

    Eibach springs on oe dampers are quite bouncy (on the m3 anyway)

    Loads of the guys on the cutters forum seem to rate the intrax springs

    Eibach springs and Bilstein shocks are my favourite combo on road cars.

    Better than the standard springs, but only marginally.

    The eibach pro springs with the b6 shocks makes the b12 kit but I wanted more 'scene/stance' adjustability so ended up going with coilies.

    Rory rates his b12 kit highly

    Maybe that's wha I should have done

    Next step for me would be the Bilstein B6 + Ground Control street top mounts I think.

    Do like these

    Really like these, look like a nice fun coupe, with a cracking soundtrack to match. What's the interior like? Well built? Quiet?
