The Z4 avoids all these cabin leaks by funnelling all the water straight into the roof motor .

 

Yes but can it do 140+ on the autobahn? Our's can and did. Oh and it cost me £1400.

This thing is very nice and certainly can move.

Can't believe a virtual stranger picked me up from the station then out of town pulls over and I'm encouraged to give it a prod.

Whoever has bought it should really enjoy it but I fully agree with the reasons for sale.
Better to have loved and lost...

Took the Yellow Menace out for a run round as we had a couple of hours sun this afternoon.
It's going to be moving on to another shitter at the end of the month but with my sensible head on, it's for the best. Might try my best to buy it back somewhere down the road though!

Buy a convertible at the start of winter. Run it over the winter. Sell it at the start of spring.
That's the Autoshite way.

The world is as small as you want it to be man. Theres no strangers anymore. Not since Gavin Internet pressed LOAD "" on the big international supercomputer. I've more trust in unmet shitters than I would have in real life friends when it comes to having a blast up a long straight road in a rapid car.

What country do you live in to say it rains less in summer?!


If you are getting wet, you are not driving quick enough! ;)

Took the SLK for a whizz round this morning in preparation for collection. After a week of lounging in the spacious Saab it was a bit of an crampfest folding my rotund ass back into the Merc. I enjoyed having a whiz round in it but the Saab is MUCH more practical and I really feel like I've made the right choice in the switch.

Popped over to town to pic up the new owner from the train and he's set off south.


In a cog netto.

Bye for now little trooper. Hopefully see you again one day.

Nope. This shitter was a REPEAT CUSTOMER. I'm sure he'll be knocking a thread together when home.

A+ BUYER. EVEN OVERPAID TO COVER COLECTIFICATION FROM STATION.
