Hello from Snowy Hampshire

Post by S3Highwayman » Sun Feb 03, 2019 8:28 pm

Just registered and thought I'd say hi to everyone!

I'm not driving the Z4 much at the moment, given the weather conditions around here, but am looking forward to doing so when the ice has cleared. I love to get out in the cold winter air on a sunny day (roof down, of course!), as well as when the weather warms up later in the Spring/Summer.

My wife and I have just consolidated her old E85 3.0si and my Mercedes SLK32 AMG into a 2009 E89 Z4 35i SDrive in silver with red leather interior and black exterior trim. It offers the best of both the old cars, with plenty of power on tap, but also great cruising and comfort. Split rim alloys really set the car off and, apart from a few minor repairs/improvements required, we're planning on keeping it standard and hopefully enjoying many trouble free miles.
