Rain, rain and more rain courtesy of the UK, when will I ever drive the new Z with the top down?

That's not a wrap - it is BMW Frozen Grey metallic.

OK. Slightly puzzled, I thought you'd just had the car wrapped? Never mind, it looks great anyway.

I nearly went for Frozen Orange but having had two light scratches polished out already I think SF Red was the right choice. Apparently the matt finishes are not as easy to maintain.

I would have loved to have the Frozen Orange (to go with my Sakhir Orange M4), but no longer available. The car is wrapped, but with clear XPEL to protect the paint.

Ah, gotcha. As I said, looks great and I hope it keeps it that way.

Mine is already collecting an array of minor chips and scrapes due to the atrocious state of UK roads and the inability of some people to walk past a car without making contact

That is sad to hear. I really like the San Francisco red and that would have been my choice if I could not have gotten what I did. Both are great!!

The Z4 is fine, no leaks, I wish I could say the same about the Z3 but at the moment it won't fit in the garage. I've never had a black car before, and I am not used to hand washing the car so frequently!

Hello Monster! feel free to PM me and glad to share any winery suggestions. Let me know where you are located. I normally get up to Napa or Sonoma every 3 weeks for so and will be at a couple favorite places with my wife and daughter the day after Thanksgiving in Napa. So if you want recommendations there are lots of good places. This past weekend to get some added miles in for break-in drove up to Goldeneye in Anderson Valley near Mendocino. They have great Pinots and are part of the Duckhorn family of wines that you may know of in Napa. The one thing I noticed in making that drive is how awesome it is to be in Comfort mode for the longer portions of the drive and then to put the top down and be in Sport Plus mode on the twistys along the coast - this car has 2 distinct personalities which I am loving. Sports car when you want it and more of a GT cruiser when you want that! Have heard the new NSX is similar beast or Honda Accord too. My wife loves the comfort and she used to refuse my Z4 M Coupe as it just rattled her around too much when heading to wine country! Enjoy the new car! You will love it.

Nice photo with your car and the water. We visited Scotland a few years ago and enjoyed it a lot. When the weather is nice I bet you enjoy your roadster!

Yes, the coastline along the West of Scotland is a very nice place to enjoy this great car.
If BMW would fix the problem with stones getting trapped in the front brakes it would be perfect.
