Welcome to the forum, lovely looking car :thumbsup: but they’ve put the steering wheel on the wrong side :rofl: :thumbsup:

Touche. No idea what that meant and am not going to look it up
All good things come to those who wait. But I'm really impatient which explains a lot.

Sounds like it’s to do with having a very large wallet of some kind.

Only thing I will disagree with is: the MOST beautiful convertible of the century (so far) is the E85 :)
Welcome. And the heaters on all BMW's are hot enough to drive in the Finland winter. It would be lovely :thumbsup:

Great choice I ended up in an E89 for similar reasons - UK winters with no garage storage option.
I also have the Tesla (works car) and because our family of 6 is a little larger than most we have always run a Chrysler Grand Voyager. The family is grown up now so the Chrysler generally only comes out for camping trips and I've just bought the lad a SAAB convertible for his 21st - have to say that the soft top on the SAAB certainly seems capable of dealing with the UK winter :thumbsup:

She started in her daycare a few weeks ago. It's only about 2 km away from our home. My wife takes our other car to work earlier in the morning so I drove our girl there with my bicycle for two weeks every morning. The weather started to turn more rainy last week and luckily we got the Z4 just in time a week ago. So this is a very new thing for us, just 3-4 daycare drives with her yet, and we had a short drive last weekend with the roof down too. She seems to enjoy our Beemer almost as much as her father. :D

Thanks for all the compliments and welcomes!

One fresh photo from this foggy morning. She is pretty alright. Got the new tires on yesterday, but didn't have time to do a good test drive yet. But they sure feel better than it was before, no surprise there.
