Good Morning, 

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Previous owner had H&R springs with stock suspensions. It was horrible!

I have replaced all the shocks to Bilstein B6 with factory shocks.

so far no major issues. But I can feel the bumps quite a lot due to low profile tyre.

Are you still on Run Flat tyres?  They tend to make the ride a little harsh.

I’m not 100% sure. Is there any way to check that?

Welcome, and it will be on the sidewall of the tyre somewhere. But it may not be obvious because the tyre manufacturers seem incapable of defining a standard, you may need to check the web for info on your specific tyre.

Welcome from a Z4 owner in Wellington. I have a 2003 3.0 manual E85, under rated car IMO. Ditching the run flats make a big difference, I guess you mean Bilstein shocks and standard springs? I have Motorsport suspension but was considering the H & R’s with koni or Bilstein shocks so interested to hear your comments.

Nice looking car in white.www.z4-forum.com is a good UK site for Z4 enthusiasts.

Someone has to be the wheel nerd... Style 63 off E53 methinks http://www.bmwstylewheels.com/bmw/63 😜

Be warned, I've seen some 'non-wheel' pictures in this site. 🙄
