I did a road trip in the Varberg and Falkenberg area last year. I stayed off the motorways and only drove on country roads (not gravel). It was great fun. :D
The photos were taken at Grimeton Radio Station.

Same woods, different color.
I really enjoyed the autumn colors.

Less than a month until it is time to take her out again. Spring can't come soon enough.
My brother is driving (with me behind the camera) somewhere around Fjärås, Sweden.

Silver Gray and Space Gray seem so close to being the same color. I'd love to see them side-by-side.

Your car is beautiful, great pics.

Thank you!
I guessing yours is Space Grey? I think grey suits Z4 very well. :)

I've had the Coupé for almost a year now. I still turn around to look when I have parked it.
This was one of the first photos I took of the car. Even though the side profile is my favorite angle, it looks great from the front as well.

I haven't updated this thread for some time. So I thought I will recap some things (might be reposts from other threads) from the past year while I wait for spring to arrive.

Lets start with a picture. (we all like pictures on this forum :D) It's probably my favorit picture of the car so far. (taken, to the day, one year after I purchased it)

Spring cleaning included removing the exhaust tips for a thorough clean. They turned out nice!
Image

And back on the car again.
Image

Inspired by this forum I bought and installed a genuine ZHP shift knob. It looks really nice and feels good too. To improve shifts even more, I'm considering changing the transmission fluid (never done) at next service.
Image

And full interior view.

In late summer I finally changed the Bridgestone RFT to Goodyear Eagle F1 ASY5. The aim was improve comfort. It helped. The car felt more nimble, no more tramlining and less harsh on bad road surface. But I can't say it was night and day, as some reported on here.
A suspension refresh is nothing I'm considering for this year, but it might be of interest sometime in the future. (the car is still on its original springs and dampers)

In the autumn I saw tendency of condensation buildup inside one of the headlights, so I replaced the back covers which seemed to have fixed the problem.
One of the foglights has condensation buildup and some oxidation of the chrome parts. I will leave it as it is for now. If it becomes a lot worse, there is always the drilling trick.

I have really enjoyed driving the car, but as a weekend toy I only drove it a little less than 5000 km during the past year. When the car was put away for the winter it had just ticked over to 80000 km on the odometer.
Image

The spring can't come soon enough! Until then, I will try to post some pictures in this thread from now and then and continue to participate in the monthly photo competition.

Even tough I'm not posting a lot I really enjoy this forum! :ilz4f:
