Hi Gwest44,

Mine, does not have the SatNav (didn't particularly like the dashboard with it), coincidentally mine too is Interlagos blue :wink:

I am thinking I might sell it and get myself a classic car (here in Ireland the road tax is an extortionate €1,830/year :thumbsdown:
Wow - I thought £555 was bad enough :thumbsdown:
X2..
:headbang:

I suppose the trick is, to try an acquire an earlier registered Z4M, which sits in the lower tax banding :thumbsup:

GLWTS, OP..
Hi woolybear,

I am afraid in my case - and in Ireland - pre-2008 is already in the lower tax band: a July 2008 Z4 M would be taxed at €2,350! :cry:
Makes €1,830/year feels like a bargain!
Z4M Coupe, Interlagos blue, black leather, piano black, stubby, E46 M3 OEM strut brace, cup holders...pretty much stock (for the time being :wink: )

That red lower tax bracket Z4MR I was sniffing around a couple of months ago has now popped up on Facebook at £9750.

Didn't someone on here buy it in the end?

Yes I bought it a couple of months ago.

I thought it would be a more sensible option as a weekend car for myself.But to be honest it really doesn't do it for me.In two months excluding driving it back from when I purchased it ,I've covered 114 miles.82 of those miles were one trip to Haynes breakfast club.

I've been offered another car which would suit me a lot better, hence why this has gone back up for sale.

That's a shame - I'm sure you'll have no problem shifting it at that price.

I missed the final price drop last time - was umming and arring at 10.5k but pretty sure I would have pulled the trigger when it dipped under 10k.

Good luck with the sale - intrigued to know what your next car might be :D

With any luck it will be a supercharged vx220, but will have to see if the z4m will sell.

I ragged one of these round the MOD’s place at Cobham... yep quick 0-60, though if you like a few creature comforts & something nicely put together you may be rather disappointed

I also found it a little skittish while I was being over adventurous round the chicanes of that little test area

As long as it feels like a roller skate I don't mind about creature comforts and build quality.
Ideally a v6 exige would be on the cards.But by the time I could afford one,a Zimmer frame would probably be more use.

I assume this might be a fake account as I thought it was a members car. The Autotrader add had it in Essex and this ebay seems to have it in Norwich.
