Biggest. Wheel Spacer. Ever.

So there's this car at my dealer right now... CRAZY peice of CRAP. it's a Z4 with a full Z8 body conversion on it! RIDICULOUS! anyway, the Z8 body is SOOOO much wider than the Z4... this tard put spacers on his wheels to fit the body.

So generally people use spacers between 1-20mm.. these are TWO HUNDRED MM spacers. that's 200. TWO ZERO ZERO... TARD!!!

Yeah, well KL... why don't you buy me a digital camera? no? ok, then don't bitch! =)

I'm trying to buy a digital SLR, but hey, if I'm gonna spend 600-1500 bucks, it'll probably be on the car, not a camera.

picture this.... the wheels sit flush with the fenders/quarters, although the wheel has a bit of negative camber (top of wheel leans toward car).... then you look into the spokes of the wheel, and there it is... an 8 INCH wheel spacer. YEAH!

Here is the rear and angle shot... notice the Z4 wheels... The rear lights are majorly fake.. (the REAL Z8 tail lights are $$$$$$$$$$$$) the exhaust is a tip on the left and a fake on the right.

I didn't get a good shot of the interior, but it's BONE STOCK Z4 2.5.

More pics in a minute

That says a whole lot of, 'I spent a bunch of money on this piece of crap'. With body shop rates, and the amount of bondo work that must've taken, the dude could've probably just bought a real Z8 ... or at least something a lot hotter than a Z4 2.5 made to look like a franken-Z8.

It must be the coveted and very limited K-Mart Edition, BMW Z8, complete with optional 200mm spacers, bone-jarring 2.5 I6 and functionally challenged dual tip exhaust.

Only 2 made. I think Sasquach owns the other one.


Why didn't I see that before?

I guess they didn't feel like doing their signature square exhausts.
