    Hello guys,

    A long term e89 owner and former e85 owner for some years, I thought I'd show my face on this forum finally having spent many years on z4-forum.com

    It seems this forum has equally good pedigree and I hope to both learn and help here.

    I'm also hoping to get involved with the forthcoming silverstone classic event and help generate and glue some interest together.

    :)

    Evening @Maniac, :welcome:

    You know forum rules, where's the piccies ;)

    I think I have been copied in on a couple of emails with you about Silverstone Classic. I've not had chance to read them thoroughly, but will definitely be keen to work with you to get things more organised this year across the forums :)

    Cheers, Gary

    Ah, it was a post from my phone, but as I'm on the laptop now, I'm guessing you mean pics of the car and not me (lucky escape) so...

    A very nice well kept car. Very happy to have you with us. I'm fairly new here but a can say there's a bunch of avid z owners who enjoy each other's company and having fun together. Frankie

    Yep its nappa (poor baby lamb sheeps) leather. I also wear jeans, I look after the leather well, clean, feed etc, to prevent any staining. Looks as good now as it did new.

    Thanks for all the welcome posts.

    The names change with the wind. Almost each model gets a new name for a similar colour. :D
