Looks kind of beige / brown to me? :tumbleweed:

Maybe I need a colour correction on my screen? :rofl:

Will be interested to see what you think next to the trick'd 35i?

Ahhhh well good question Ed....honestly the mapped 35i is a bit crackers.... :lol: soooooo much shove, lord knows what the 400bhp + boys on here cars are like.....out the box mad I should think.... :lol: From the loan M40i I had it’s got the shove of the 35i but much more control and well mannered, a chassis far and away better than the 35i even with M3 arms, updated anti roll bar, and KWV3 coil overs. I’ve kept the revs to 4K max on the new car but that’s enough to make it dig in round some twistys up here in Derbyshire, it’ll kill an E89 full stop, so it should really. The 35i is a hell of a lot of fun though, manual box and I can’t help love the E89....flawed in lots of ways but still something quite special. :driving:

Quote/handymanuk
I’m a relatively new member, I post a bit, but threads like this put me off. I’m just being honest. I think we all know by now that the OP doesn’t like the G29 and he’s told us this many, many times.

From the outside looking in, why would a G29 owner want to contribute to a forum that’s dominated by a few members who love to tell people how much they don’t like the car that they drive?

I personally do not see the value in threads like this. Forums don’t grow and survive just based on noise. There needs to be meaningful discussion.

This thread could have been ‘has anyone noticed that the seat colours have changed?’, but instead the OP is banging the same old drum to justify why he didn’t end up buying a car that many of us love and enjoy.

How about we change the tone here and be a bit more positive and inclusive? Or should I come onto the E89 forum and say how lucky I am that I no longer own one? :o

I can see where you're coming from,and this forum has gone a bit toxic in recent years,more so since covid hit unfortunately.
The problem with having too much time on some people's hands.....just look at the Jab thread. Innocent thread posted by pvr, but has descended into a certain few people banging on and on constantly about what they believe to be the Truth, and ramming it down our throats constantly ,if anyone dare disagree.

My point being,like the jab thread the op didn't expect that to go how it has..

I don't think john-e89 intended this thread to go the way it has.

Proof being in the pudding,as he went out and bought a G29 z4.
It was merely an observation that shades in cognac colour seem to have changed.
A bit like the 2 different shades in Imola red leather in earlier cars that there seemed to be,if I remember correctly.

Anyway,I love the Black and red combo John,good choice.
Some colours just work so well together.....Black and Red,Black and Tan, Blue and Champagne,White and Coral Red, etc etc.

Glad the business is going so well John.
Bet you can't wait to get out to drive it. :driving:

Byron gets nothing but great reviews,pity he wasn't closer to me ,for when the time comes for me to get mine painted,detailed and some ppf on it.
Hopefully get to see your new zin the flesh sometime, John (and yourself).
Enjoy your new z4 :thumbsup:

What do you expect me to say to your post about me banging on about not liking the G29 when I have a brand new one...?? What would you like me to say...? It’s a very un complimentary post and factually incorrect....what should I say...?
Since you've asked, like this:
john-e89 wrote: Thu Apr 01, 2021 2:29 pm...it’s YOU who brought it back in a quite nasty manner, I then defend it and it’s now ME whose at fault it seems...... :rofl:
Actually that's not the case. It was this user that bought up the thread from Jan this year:

Not me.

john-e89 wrote: Thu Apr 01, 2021 2:19 pmAnd the reason I never bothered to post pics of my new car, nor had any intention to do so on here, is precisely because of these types of post from you and the other crew who have voiced utter bile over something as simple as seat colour, and a seat colour I almost chose, as a matter of discussion, but because of this thread I didn’t bother until now.
john-e89 wrote: Thu Apr 01, 2021 2:22 pmBig of you. Jesus that Guidok chap even went on a mocking spree after I said the colour had changed in my opinion, then did some research and found out I was right, then didn’t have the grace to acknowledge it. Speaks volumes of the ilk I mention imho.
