Dont drive a Z4 yet but a big fan

Post by bluestreak56 » Tue Aug 11, 2009 3:24 pm

Hi all,

I dont have a z4 myself but am a big fan and am quite into my cars.

Presently I drive a 92 Volkswagen Scirocco GT2 (pretty heavily modified).

One day I would like a Z4 Coupe (SE or Sport) in black with red leather, and all the extras!

Checked out insurance for me (being a youngster) its about £1,150 so I think I'll give it a few years before I pick one up! :rofl:

That's a very nice looking example - I can see why it isn't going anywhere!

Looks nice!

I pay £1,050 (23, 2yr NCB, mum as named driver, 'B' post code, teacher) and it's high, but well worth it. If you can afford it, then seriously go for it.

My previous cars include an RX-8 and an A3 turbo S-Line and the 3l Z4 craps on both from a great height!

Thanks all for the warm welcome!

Im 24 myself spud only 1yrs NCB got an SP30 from 4 years ago also.. I have the money but its about whether or not I should be saving for a house at this point in my life..

I'm not a big petrol head - dont get me wrong love the rocco and the z4 coupe but give me the same car with audi quattro 170 diesel that can crank out 50mpg and Ill be a happy bunny anyday!

That said still much prefer the E86 to the new version!
