Roadster owners, wear your hats...

It's a bit hot this week:

Now I don't know about you guys, but after owning my Z4 for 7 summers and experiencing 35c+ heat whilst driving (with the roof down) quite a few times, I would recommend you wear a cap, even if you have hair like me, or you will get to your destination and not know what you've driven there for :lol:

It's not great. In these Temps I actually prefer keeping the hood and windows up and sticking the a/c on full blast :thumbsup:

I imagine this is why the figures suggest that less convertibles are sold on the continent, compared to the UK, as their weather tends to be a lot warmer than ours!

Anyway, happy and safe driving :driving:

Had a 2 hour journey to do and stopped at the garage to pick up a cap. Glad I did.

I was out in it today. Glorious, country roads.. But God motorways suck the life out of you....
If you ever think I'm off my rocker.. Just put me back in it and walk away... It's the kindest thing
My wife says I never listen - or something like that.
