Thank you for the compliments gentlemen. As it happens it was the the exact combination I have always had my eye on. She had 108's on originally however, thanks the JamieZ4, she now has the "right" wheels on!!
In the coming weeks she will have the oils changed and just be driven and yes that is my 330d on the drive :)

Lovely car. Although i would say that having a sterling grey with 107s.
I also said no mods planned when i first had mine but the more time you spend on here the more ideas you get and the more you'll want to do. It also helps reduce the weight (of your wallet) :lol:
Cracking car though and just in time for plenty of top down summer blasts :thumbsup:

They are THE best wheels for the Z4 IMHO :)

Regarding the CCV, I'm going to change this as a precautionary measure - can someone point me in the direction of a part number please. I'm assuming it's not too expensive and not a difficult job?

Welcome Aboard, lovely looking car, especially when you consider the age/mileage. The zed definitely seems to be aging much better than its competitors of similar vintage such as the MK1 Audi TT, 986 Porsche Boxster, Mazda MX5 and Honda S2000. They all seem to be showing their age to me, then again, I am biased! :D

Lovely looking Zed, these cars just don't seem to age do they :thumbsup:


Just said this myself. That will teach me to read the thread properly before posting.

You seem to have mis-quoted me here - or thats how it appears.
