    Dare I say it, but I actually like the chrome "Z8" on the rear bumper in that photo. Has anyone done that here? Is it just an adhesive?

    Would love to see one of these cars with a Ferrari Avio blue and a bordeaux interior and candy apple red like the launch car for the Pagani Huyara.

    Gorgeous! Cognac with the green would be truly stunning. If only BMW had offered more variety for the Z8!

    Thank you for that warning! There I was thinking I might confuse it with a doughnut!

    So rotating 180 should increase negative camber.

    Green Z8

    Anyone know anything about this absolutely stunning Z8 photographed (apparently) in Switzerland....a country with more good stuff per mile than most anywhere else it seems?

    Thank you! That's what I'm thinking. I'll trade a little ultimate grip at the limit for better feel all the time.

    They did in fact install the camber plates (~$600).

    Seems the Dinan plates INCREASE positive castor which makes steering more difficult. More stable at high speed but more dull at moderate and low speeds. I think I want to try and go the other way. ...

    I don't think so. Do they dial in or dial out castor? Is there no castor adjustment in the suspension that can be set by an alignment shop? I thought all cars were adjustable for castor?
