New E89 35i Owner in Wokingham U.K.

Post by Lazza » Sat Nov 11, 2017 11:26 am

Hi all

I bought my first Z4 just over a week ago a 2009 Z4 35i in space grey (I think that’s what it’s called). I love it!!!

I got it from a local BMW dealer so did pay a little over the odds for it but it is in great condition for an 8 year old car and the fitted new tyres (run flats but they will do for now), paid for the tax, an mot and a service and I get a 12 month pretty comprehensive warranty so that helps a lot.

I have some pictures but the photo hosting site I used to use is photobucket and they have blocked all photo sharing from free accounts and it’s not something I care enough about to pay for. What is the best site to use for this now?

I bet that's a pretty good driving route!

Partly. The roads are mostly pretty good but it’s mostly pretty slow stuff. The traffic is light but there is always something and there are only 2 short stretches on the whole 22 mile trip where an overtake is possible.
I’ve been using a Merc C220 cdi as my daily for the last 2 years and it was averaging around 30mph for that trip. The advantage was also averaging over 55mpg. I’m getting half of that now :lol:
