Goodbye old Z hello New

Saw this in a dealer and had to have it. In my garage now. Lots of power. Cold day no traction. Might need all seasons.

Congratulations on your new purchase! I almost went to see this car in November but Ramsey had a frozen grey as well and was closer to me. Hope you get the top down this weekend, going to be 60 degrees.

Yes Ramsey had this with black wheels. Yuck. Not with this color. San Francisco Red looks awesome with black though.

Congrats, lovely looking car.

I think you'll struggle to find all seasons unless you change the wheels.

I've put Conti TS860S winters on mine - great in the cold but not so good on the rather frequent warm days we've had in the UK over the last couple of weeks.

I agree. I found a frozen grey on a lot with interior I wanted but couldn't pull the trigger because of the black wheels. Ended up ordering in order to get the cerium grey wheels. They do look great with the red though.

Rims for Winter

As i hate to break down tires, i usually just get rims, sensors and all season for the winter. Plenty of options on tire rack for all seasons. Kuhmo tires seem a good choice. Also found these rims. Perfect match because there gray. Niche Vosso M204. Spent all day installing Led lights in lower grill. What a pain. Not alot of choices to run wire.

Donít understand why they donít fit the side M badges as standard in the US as they look great and would add very little cost to BMW.

It's because North Americans don't like M badges on cars that are not an ///M (see the fake badge thread). Maybe they could have put an M40i badge there

Well a 10th of a second slower than an M4 so i think the badge is earned.

Since I own an M4 also, I will disagree.

My problem with an M3 or M4 is that its Looks like my wife 3 series, the interior is the old and bland (no Audi interior thats for sure). Yes its got performance, but 85-90k and it still can't top a Corvette. No thanks. I almost got your color in an M3. Love that Sakkir orange, my favorite.Prefer the flared back of an M3. Just couldn't get over the interior after having a 3 series. Yours looks great.

I feel the same way. BMW is just diluting the brand.

Well according to some M3 M4 owners its not deserved. Sour grapes on getting a 3 series with better engine. If they wanted a real sedan with power. Should have got a new M5.
