Post by A2KVU » Fri Jun 11, 2021 2:52 am

Thanks for allowing me to join the forum!

Just picked up today my first E85 and driven it 450 miles back home to the Scottish Highlands and didn’t miss a beat!
2004 SE 2.2. with only 66k on the clock. Not perfect but pretty good and certainly genuine.
First job is I have been quite extravagant and ordered some fully reconditioned 108 alloys for it. Cost an arm and a leg but they look so good on the E85 in my opinion. Not sure if the standard SE suspension will suit these wheels but time will tell.

Welcome. As the others said, that's a great colour combination you have there.
Looks much cleaner with the badges all removed. Something that seems to suit some colours better than others.
I think I prefer those wheels tbh, but it's not my car............

Hello and welcome from another Scottish member. Lovely looking car. l also like the current wheels, I think they suit the car/colour combo :thumbsup: 108’s look nice too so you’ve got the option to alternate between them

You’ve definitely got some of the best roads ever for enjoying your Z4. We’re heading up Inverness way in a couple of weeks as it’s or favourite area to go with our Zed :driving:

If I saw your current wheels off the car I probably wouldn't like them but they do look good on yours.
The 108's are perfect for the Z also, so you can't go wrong.

Jealous of you driving through the highlands. :driving:

Congratulations on finding such a fantastic looking Z4. :thumbsup:

I really like those turbine wheels, but I can understand the appeal of 108!

A lovely looking car, be great fun driving it on some of the roads where you are. I do miss some of these Scottish roads. From a Scotsman now in New Zealand.

I like your wheels - in fact I like the 106 turbine style so much that's what I put on my car! And with having Sports suspension, the 17" rim does help the ride over the bumps compared to the 18" I had previously.
Glad to see so many positive comments about them too :) Personally I'm not a fan of 108s, but we all like different things.
