    Hi all, Picked up my first Roadster (2lt Z4) last month and the grin hasn't fallen from my face since.

    I live in Fareham near Portsmouth and looking forward to meeting up with other owners, I generally see about 3 or 4 near where I live. Z4.jpg

    Welcome from mid northern Canada. I think you'll find the forum informative and helpful so feel free to ask questions. Enjoy the car and the ride here as it gets bumpy at times. JIM

    Welcome to the forum from the other side of the Pond. Glad to have you with us. We always tell members to feel free to ask questions about your car as there will be several members who have the same model as you do. But I'll depart from this by starting off asking you a question. I noticed that several members mention something about "cake". This could be a Brit thing that I'm not aware of. Can you help ME with this. Gratefully, Frankie

    Thanks, Rob. It must be in inside joke between some of the members. Frankie

    I think he means he can't provide the service, and I don't blame him! Bonzo will be gutted......

    Frankie, I believe it has something to do with cakes of soap which in the Navy are not attached with ropes.

    Not jealous Greg,MUCH, I hate this time of year when dark nights are approaching it depresses the hell out of me.:(
    I have much respect for folk like Jim who have longer darker winters than ours.
    But,you enjoy your car mate and don't worry about us!=))

    Cheers,Tony.
