    Nice! Is my Alpina suspension in yet? Waiting on exhaust, later this month I hope. Then we'll do much of the same to mine.

    Looks a bit high in the back in the photo. Is it a trick in the photo or does the Alpina suspension increase the rear ride height?

    The EU front springs are actually a bit lower in front

    I think it is part of what makes the handling of the EU suspension package so nice. I love the lower grille in the Topaz, kind of wish I'd done the swap and photographed it while it was still with me.

    She'll have a lovely time circling Lake Como, which I believe where her new home will be.

    Adieu 62067!

    Ian,

    Dana is a wonderful resource for this forum. I ordered four stock 18" wheels for AH60109. I am mounting MPS2 tires and saving my 900 mile runflats/wheels. The two front wheels were mildly damaged in shipping and Dana simply ordered me two new ones. He is responsive with phone calls and is obviously very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the Z8.

    You are absolutely right, Andrew. ;-)
    I'm waiting eagerly to receiving my precious 62067.
    And then it'll go directly to warm and hospitable Italy, where I'll keep here for ever. :-)
    Thank you VERY VERY much, Andrew for keeping this gorgeous car for me.
    Thanks to you, now I'm an extremely happy new owner of this beauty.

    I hope that I'll be back in Lake Como with the Z8 Club for the Villa D'Este event in either 2012 or 2013, so hopefully I'll get to see you both then!
