New z owner west London

Post by Niro777 » Fri Mar 23, 2018 12:04 pm

Having my e46 m3 ownership cut short I just happened to come across a z4m roadster at a deal I couldn’t help but take up.
Absolutely loving the car so far and only had it a couple weeks.

Cheers guys. Thanks for the warm welcome. Just got a couple questions. As I’ve never had a soft top before. What would be the best option to clean the green algae off of the cloth and what would be best to seal it with?

I use this method for the algae: viewtopic.php?f=46&t=100317

and I use BMW soft top protector (the fabric shouldn't be 'sealed' - its supposed to be porous, there is an inner lining that is waterproof)

Was cut short due to a little minor accident that insurance deemed a write off.

They’re miles apart. I feel that the m3 was the more predictable and tame car but the suspension and steering was a bit lacking.
Z4m drives better in possibly every single way. It’s everything you’d want the m3 to be stock.
