    YouTube film about my Z8 and M3 CSL ownership and mods

    Hi all,

    Long time since Iíve logged in here, but just wanted to say hi again and Happy Holidays / New Year to everyone. I recently did a photo and video shoot with a car club here in the UK that Iím a member of (SCD). They put together some really great meets / track days over here as well as producing a print magazine every quarter and a great YouTube channel. Anyway, they wanted to shoot my Z8 and M3 CSL, so we arranged this back in September and they then put this video together. Hope you like it! Iíll also post some of the still photos from the shoot in the next few days.



    all the best,
    Mike

    Nice filming and presentation! What suspension set up are you running?

    itís a custom Bilstein setup that was developed by Birds BMW (independent specialist here in the UK, near Heathrow). I believe it has a pretty similar overall effect to the Euro Alpina setup - so a surer, less crashy ride in general. It also a gave it a slight drop in height which really works well with the Alpina wheels - I think it really transforms the look.

    thanks for the kind comments on the video - these guys really put some good stuff together, check out their channel for other interesting content as they have some members with some pretty interesting and exotic machines!

    Nice video. Two of my favorite cars. I think the Z8 prices may have hit another bottom. The next peak will probably take them above the .5m mark.

    Thanks, I very much agree with your view - in my experience of 9 years ownership here in the uk, I have received an increasing amount of positive comments about the z8 from the general public but also from genuine car people at shows etc. Plus it is very clear that a car like this will not be made again by BMW for the foreseeable future ..!
