    Well the new wheels arrived for the Z4 today and 2 of them need returning :( 2 of them have dents on the stainless rims. So i called Rimstyle and they are going to hopefully replace them. Had to take photos of the dents and email them. They are not that big but they are noticeable :arghh:

    That's a shame Billz. Do we get to see a whole wheel, or have we still got to wait? ;)

    Have bought a 12v kettle so we can have a cuppa on our trip, only takes 18mins to heat up. Plug it in when we set off and 50 miles up the road have a cuppa, Then we can hand it over to the next one. We can have a Kettle relay :p

    An update on the new wheels. I have been offered 80 quid of the price or i can have a refund or pick a different set of wheels. I cant have replacements as RS have not got any left. So i emailed the guy from Rimstyle and i am getting a set of Cades deep dish very simualer to the Inovit DTMs
