Your are correct .. its going, I will let you know what I get next

You should think about this!

You are really considering a 25k used car against a 300mile "new" car?

If the current car has some problems, just have them fixed in the remaining 2,5 years of it warranty !

I would suggest you get longer test drives in future.

Hi Ronk .. can you tell I am in a crap mood tonight ! now wheres my thyoxerine tablets ... :x
Seriously tho JB, you will do well to have your meds checked :thumbsup:

Seriously it cant be runflat tyres thats wanting you to change vehicles.
As Ronk said change the tyres, it will cost you around £500 and you could get some of that back selling your RFTs that are brand new.

Road noise on the e89 is high. I felt just the same about the e85. They're really noisy but you just don't realise how noisy until you get in a quiet car.

100% :thumbsup:

That's why I consider it a top down car only - top on is only if the rain starts while out and about !

For example, there is some debate on the Mercedes-Benz world Forum as to wind noise around the top of the new c class front windows. So the other day I decided to take the Z4 out for a same speed run because I thought that the car had much less wind noise than the C class however I did Notice it had just the same level of wind noise but you could hardly hear it over the road noise in the Z4. It just shows that the C class is so quiet in every other respect the wind noise becomes noticeable.

Road noise in the zed is dreadful and if I couldn't drop the top I wouldn't have the car !
I find voices must be raised at motorway speeds top up.

Maybe I've been spoiled with my other cars or I'm just getting old. :D

Having said that, I love the car and will keep this one for many more years and would happily buy another one :thumbsup:

Maybe you guys are just going deaf. :)
Not got a problem with noise with the roof up and feel its a lot quieter than previous cars, not expensive cars right enough.

Audi 3.0 Tdi and a Disco 3 so maybe both on the quiet side?
The zed needs raised voices but as I say, that's mainly road noise from the runflats - I can live with it.
It means I hear less nagging :D

Our Mini has a panoramic roof and when you pick up the speed or its really windy outside its very noisy.
Road noise is very loud also especially if you sit in the back.

We are going deaf and therefore think the car is noisy? Er...

If going deaf we'd think it super quiet! Which is is NOT. The e89 is loud inside on the motorway.

Name me a 2 seater convertible with 19" wheels that isnt..

Tyre noise is what you can hear,but being sat so closely to the fat rear tyres doesnt help,neither do runflats

Holy s**t Maniac, another 5 months have passed.
My deaf comment was about what Ronk had said about having to raise voices to be heard. It was a joke. :)
