That colour is great! Really suits it.

I think a moulded rear screen would be better to keep the lines straight as the Micra one starts to curve in at the edges but that's just me.

Looks like a GB scuttle could help it - the Z3 screen is always a bit long and would be nice visual enhancement with chrome screen surround.

Hoping you keep the colour - nice one

Much nicer with the proper bonnet. I think Smash is right about the rear window.

Bonnet option works well, I like the open scoop too ! Whilst I have gone for dark blue paint I had thought of Aston Racing Green or similar shade. "Illusive" blue would also look the part if you wanted a retro blue.

Well done! Especially like those door handles.
Where did you source them?

Casamolino - who did the bonnet modification? Looks amazing.
Hoping you post some ‘after paint’ pics.
Wish I could somehow work out how to have a z3 updated and then shipped to the US. Your car is going to stop people in the streets so that they can take pics of it!

Good morning Munky , bonnet mods courtesy of Chris at Tribute , all things being equal ,body/paint should be complete in a couple of weeks , although my paint-shop guy has a very fluid understanding of time , thanks Geoff .

It’s looking wonderful!
You got me looking for donors last night. Managed to find a 120k mile Z3M for $8k but the wife would kill me.
I’m still waiting for my Caterham kit to be shipped from the UK.
I think seeing yours painted may tip the balance.
Good luck with the painter!
