Hartge Program for the New BMW Z4

The recently released for the US market BMW Z4 had no chance of going unnoticed with tuners around the world. German tuner Hartge announced today their new visual upgrading program for the Z4. Don't expect major make-overs, though.

Being virtually brand new, Hartge has not set out to change the looks of the Z4. They only designed the little things that count, such as speedometers, exhaust and wheel-tire combinations. Emblems and insignias can also be found in the Hartge offering. In fact, the only add-ons for the body are the two insignia models developed by the tuner: Hartge insignia - 140 x 16 mm and Hartge insignia, blue - 140 x 32 mm.

For the interior, the aftermarket kit is comprised of aluminum pedal sets (two pedals for the automatic gearbox version and 3 for the manual one). In addition, an aluminum foot-rest is provided.

Visual improvement to the car's interior comes for the three speedometers Hartge has to offer. Two are graded in km/hour (both 300 km/hour, one in silver metallic background with red needle). For the steering wheel, Hartge prepared an aluminum emblem. On the outside, the tuner came up with stainless steel tail piece with dual round tail pipes for sDrive23i and sDrive30i versions.

The most elaborate part of the program comes in the shape of wheels and tires offer. The wheel sets can be shoed in three types of rubber: Continental, Pirelli, Michelin, all of which can be fitted with Tire Pressure Control (TPC). The dimensions of the wheels and tires are listed below.
