    . . . . . I may have tempted fate. I was busy trying to make some room in the Shed ready for a busy day coming up.
    Because yesterday was the first day of Spring I thought we're safe from.the dreaded gritters round here, so this happened.

    I know you do mate, and Huw @miller1098 has said he liked the Turbine style 106 ones better. I like the 108s because they're much easier to clean.:)

    Lol wheels are in the eye of the beholder ,but what really makes your car and to my mind is styling genius is your sill sticker after seeing that I couldn’t drive a z4 without one .it really gets rid of the pregnant hippo look .its lovely and the spoiler of course;)

    Thanks for that mate, I really do like the difference it makes. Maybe I should share it with other E85 owners, they're really easy to fit and I think that puts people off thinking it's difficult.

    You're a good few degrees north of me Steve, hang on to them a bit mate. I had a quick blast around the block earlier and I'd forgotten how much more grip these have, roll on warm roads.:ymdevil:

    It must be warming up as I got the M out and mowed the lawn at our daughters holiday units .No nonsense as it’s booked for a Vanos overhaul in April 257B2DC6-24C1-4BFF-A8EF-8CA96B5CE55C.png 552CA754-D8C1-4A18-A54C-07F7B4AE2FFE.png

    Nothing wrong with positive thinking Tony. In the words of Donald Sutherland and my mantra (Don't keep giving me them negative waves)
