Hello all

This is my 3rd Z4, had two grey then about a month back I bought this one which was black. Then out of the blue my mid life crisis snuck up on me and I decided to get it wrapped. Just picked it up today and here are some quick pics on drive home.
Some will love it some will hate it but hey ho. Only driven it home and been to Asda in it and already 3 people have stopped me to ask about the car.

It certainly is orange! It will only be going out when the sun is shining so at least I won't look quite as bad driving a satsuma in the middle of winter :rofl:

I have taken to driving my black Zed with the headlamps on as it seemed to be invisible to a number of other drivers (otherwise known as idiots). Bet you don't have that issue!

I suspect that 12 July is not particularly special in Wales!

Couple months back I was considering going orange but a bit more goldy orange and was unsure what it would look like with my wheels (same as yours).
Now I know, unsure.🤔🤔

When I picked it up I was the same, it was dull and overcast and it looked very plain, it also had the old MV2 alloys on.
Swapped the alloys, sun came out and it's a completely different car, really sparkles when the sun is on it. Shame the sun only shine 4 or 5 days a year in this country!

I like it... although probably wouldn't have gone for the orange roundels and can't make my mind up if the darl lights work or not. Does look a nice car though, they are just minor observations. :thumbsup:
