Perfect :thumbup:

Just one question - is the matte black look of the frame painted, or is it the carbon look that is black?

As usual you have produced a work of art.

Ozrider - thanks mate!

Berk - the matte black is painted. It's very similar paint to that used on the matte black BMW M3 that was done last year.

I'll post a few more pics now.

Beautiful!

Given you're using spacers, why didn't you go with a tall?

Veganeric - it's true that I could have gone with a tall. The tall would have been mm perfect for my current fit with no spacers needed. However, experience has taught me that some latitude in adjustment is better than having no option. If I wanted to go lower with a tall, I wouldn't have been able to do so.

Such a great build!

Can't help but say the tires would hold it back.

Stunning. My ghost matte Z5 SL will be going back for a re-finish sometime soon, getting inspired by this
