And I'm happy in my flippy floppy roadster. That was designed to save my life from impacts like that from the start. :D :wink:
You seen the euro ncap on an E89 :rofl: :rofl:
Scored all of 3 stars

My physics would say you be in a box :rofl:
Do a little research & you're going to learn the ncap test has changed 4 times prior to the e89 testing and bmw say if testing standards had remained the same the e89 model would have scored a 5 star rating :poke:

This statement was confirmed by a BMW spokesman. “Since the 2009 when the Z4 came on the market, the Euro NCAP test criteria has changed four times. If the Z4 was tested before the changes, it would have brought five stars by the Euro NCAP criteria. This is what our internal testing has shown,” a BMW spokesman said

It was images of fellow 7 drivers who had similar write offs which in the end made me wuss out and surround myself with more metal and arbags

If your going to compare the e89 unfavourably to the earlier e85,then it’s only fair to use the same testing criteria the older e85 was subject to-so you’re comparing eggs to eggs.
Your Diesel engine comparison has no relevance at all :poke:

No air bags and with the roof on glad my back and knee are recovering :)

Its bloody loud and great fun to drive. Not as outright fast but more fun at a lower speed.

Looking forward to being able to do more work on it as well as was always a little bit wary on the Z4M.

Will tag on the back of a few runs soon. If its already in bits the Saxo will return !!!!!
