Its winter,December is the slowest for car sales
The market is crap for all cars.
Second hand value for sports cars is in freefall.
Convertibles in winter aint great sellers.

Z4 is a very niche market in the best of times. Let's face it, a two seater convertible, whilst a nice car, is not exactly a practical motor. So the market will be naturally small anyway. Add to that Christmas and people have other spending priorities and you ain't going to shift a Z4 easily. Which is why I got my 35is at a very good price since Keith needed to shift it and I came along looking for a bargain and got one.

very nice indeed, although I suspect the yellow is even more marmite than my VO! :rofl:

Before anyone gets too excited, it's a 35i, not 35iS.

Looks very good, though.

The 'Description' is '19" alloys', the 'Specification' is '18in Light Alloy Star-Spoke Style 295'.

The latter looks right and could well be better than the former.

Wow. Nice car for the money. They cost more here. It solves the outdated technology issue.
There is no technology :roll: Does that mean it has an oil dip stick or an idiot light?
