Anybody wrapped their G29...?

Ed, I fear your enthusiasm may wane even further, to the best of my knowledge this is the only White M40i that’s come on the market in the last 12 weeks + except brand new ones which obviously given your previous response doesn’t suit because of warranty and mods.

The M40i market is very strong in certain colours the only ones readily available 2nd hand are black/red/frozen orange and even then the prices are strong and the choice limited. When you start drilling down to interior colours/option packs the pool is even further narrowed.

Again to the best of my knowledge there’s only one blue M40i for sale in the country, a 21 plate with 3 options packs but an ivory interior, there’s no other new ones available except for going to a dealer and buying one, getting a build slot and waiting.!
Currently Zedless 4 more sleeps until our Misano Blue M40i arrives :D
E89 35iS, Valencia Orange, Design Pure Traction pack (Gone to a good home :thumbsup:)
E89 23i sDrive, Silver, Black leather heated MSport, Cruise, 296’s, Stubby (gone)

I suspect we are victims of our own negativity.

As I recall when the G29 came out it was dammed with faint praise by the press, mostly still against the Boxster and the existing Z4 owners didn’t rush to embrace it.

I don’t know what annual sales of it are like, I think there is a web site that shows how many were sold in the UK, but I bet it’s not much. :tumbleweed:

I’m sure when I first started looking there were quite a few yellow E89s on the market but they have largely gone, I see 2 on AT, one over priced and the other under spec’d :headbang:
Waiting for the right Zed, this summer's car is a 2008 AM Vantage Roadster
