She walked past me whilst i was refuelling an aircraft, she said hello. They were filming with that beardy bloke. I didn't recognise her, at first..
Same with that Hammond bloke, say hello and just walk off and pretend you don't know who they are.

I didn't spot that one, but hopefully it will be on again soon!

I just hope it was a bit more accurate than the one where they featured the E85. :headbang:
Z4 3.0Si Sport - Coupe for added stiffness!
Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey, Cirrus trim & 295s. Cruise, Storage and pdc. E90 330i as a DD.
Gone - Ruby Black, Pearl Grey & 135Ms. Xenons, heated seats and Professional speakers.

Shocked this thread isn’t filled with 35iS owners objecting to Vicky stating the top of the line model has 306hp.

Not seen you on here for a while. Did you ever get the problem with your car sorted?

I enjoyed the handlings being described as like a sports car wrapped in a duvet. Sums up what I have read hear nicely. :wink:

I thought that too! :D

They absolutely loved the Z4 in the £50k sports car test and I thought it was a great advert for the current Z4 for sure.

I also enjoyed the E89 bit and I'd love a E89 at some stage in the future. 8)
