Engine was a bit grimey when i got it , so gave that a good clean

Had 5 previous owners, done 47,500 miles
FSH
First owner had it in Portugal for 2 years
Cost £102k in May 2008
Mine is number 40/240 made of the N400 roadster
And one of 44 manuals made
It feels bigger than the Zed but as cars go I don't think it's that big

Stunning car OP. :thumbsup:

I can see why you were tempted away from your Z4 - enjoy. :driving:

I just hope you don't find the Yaris too tedious!

When I got my Z4 I bought a 1996 Mazda 323f for sensible daily use - that lasted 6 months before I swapped it for an E46 325ti Compact! :lol:
Z4 3.0Si Sport - Coupe for added stiffness!
Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey & 108Ms. Cruise, Storage and pdc. 325ti Sport as a DD.
Gone - Ruby Black, Pearl Grey & 135Ms. Xenons, heated seats and Professional speakers.

I give the Yaris a big thumbs up : I get 44mpg, can be totally incognito in it and don't mind if it picks up a car park dent

Stop it, stop it! Here's was me thinking that if I keep the M Roadster forever then I could retire next year. Now I am thinking it may be worth working for another year or so to get the cash together for an Aston like that. :headbang:

The Aston is proabably the only car I would consider as a replacement for the Zed. Great looks and much more compact than a lot of other equivalent cars such a small the Jag.

Truly gorgeous.

I am sure you will enjoy :driving:
