Saying Hello

Postby Tim2100 » Mon Mar 20, 2017 2:28 pm

I have been a member on here for sometime and have been reading lots of posts recently in the run up to getting a new car. So I thought I had better introduce myself.

my last two cars have both been BMW's
I have a E82 120d Coupe for 3 years and the last two and a bit years have a F20 120d. I fancy a change in many ways and am on the lookout to replace my F20 with a Z4 Coupe.

I had a quick look at Z4MR which whilst was fantastic would be a bit to much for a daily driver. £500 tax & sub 20mpg wont help.
I then saw a very cheap Z4C yesterday which I think is the cheapest in the UK and was very impressed with it. Drove really well and felt 'right' unfortunatly not quite the right time as I need to know when my lease car goes back before getting the replacement.

Thanks guys.

I'm sure I will be raising some questions as I get closer to getting the car. It has to be the Coupe as I normally have around 90lb worth of bowling balls in the boot which won't fit into the roadster.

I will certainly be joining in on some of the meet-ups when I can.

3 years is because I originally signed up 3 years ago as I had an option of picking up a Z4MC, which didn't happen.

Are you sure about that? The roadster has a fairly spacious boot :o

Yep, My bags will only just fit, very little room for anything else.

Haha. I regularly Ten-pin bowl and normally carry 6 bowling balls with me in two bags.

I have managed to fit 21 Bowling balls plus kit into the boot of my 120 hatch.

Hi and Welcome!
Most of us are intrigued how many 18" wheels will fit into the car... fair play to fitting 21 bowling balls in the car! :lol:

Good luck on the search!

I have to ask....... why do you need more than 1 bowling ball never mind 6 or 21?
You can only throw them one at a time. :lol:
And also what kit do you need other than bowling shoes?

Can't just carry round one ball? :wink:

On a serious note, I'm sure if you're into bowling (much like any sport) then it's mandatory to have some sort of team uniform!

Welcome to the forum OP.

I used to be in a junior ten-pin league, but haven't been bowling for ages - maybe it's time to get the ball out of the loft! I only ever needed one as I always bowled a straight ball, but can understand why a hook bowler would need more than one (not sure about 21 though) - I still remember the bottles of Nu-Skin from doing tournaments. :lol:

Anyway, I'm sure an E86 would take loads of balls, so to speak! And you'll find it a real treat after the diesels - I had a 320td and a 123d before I saw the light and bought an E86.

Hope you can get one soon. :thumbsup:
