Multiple Z4s owned ? 3 or more ? step forward

Post by mr wilks » Sun Dec 11, 2016 8:58 pm

Im currently enjoying my 10th Z4 & it appears there are many others who can't resist a Z4 & have been tempted by not just 1 or 2 but 3 , 4 or even more :wink:
Step forward & tell us how many & i'l formulate a list of those who have it bad as its becoming clear that at least 6 current members ( that i can think of ) have had a minimum 3 Z4s which considering they are quite impractical , often considered a summer or weekend car is a great accolade for them :driving: :thumbsup:

No mate, i was a long time lurker and didnt get round to joining the forum until I was selling the M and I'd put a deposit down on the E89.

Great idea for a list, top job. :thumbsup:

Quick question, for those that went e85/86 to e89, will you stay e89?

And for those that went e89 back to e85/86, why?

I'm on number 2 Z4. 1st was 3.0 E85 then my current 3.5i E89. I would definitely have no problem going back to an E85. Something about them that make me go giddy every time I see one and from certain angles look better than the E89. Then there s the price. I don't think there are any better roadsters out there for the money

Good question, and hard to answer imho. For me the E85 SE is such a fun car, just the right combination of power and handling, not too much so you can't use it all, you can really exploit the rev range, its nimble with fairly sharp steering and feel, but ultimately I prefer the E89, although it's biggest drawback is the lack of steering feel, it's numb, there's no denying it, but non run flats do go some way to addressing that, plus it's not as light but still very capable on non run flats, with a much nicer interior, a better all rounder I suppose. It'll be a quick thrash around if you want, and a laid back GT cruiser as well with a feeling of refinement the older 85 lacks. There may be set ups to correct the numb feel that I'll explore once the warranty runs out if I keep it. That said I'd be more than happy with the E85 if I have to sell the 89, I like them a lot.

Quite a contingent of multi Z owners among us :)
DPG & DLH i think are on 3 ? Z4M-2006 5 ? & jamie-z4 the same if not on 6 ?
It has been pointed out before but the fact that from £3k to £33k there is one for every pocket that can be enjoyed equally says a lot about the car
As for the E85 - E86 to E89 direction & can you go back from there ? Yes you can & in my case whilst the drawbacks were hard to ignore the plus points outweighed them
Buy & drive what you like , there is no superlative version in my mind :thumbsup:
