    Welcome Lee :)

    Can't recall seeing MV3 alloys on a Z4 before, and they look pretty nice! I had the 3.0i (auto) a few years back and it's a great driving car.

    Shout if you have any questions.

    Gary

    Thanks Gary
    I didn't know they weren't standard to the car , but I must say I not seen another with them .(I didn't even know the name of the alloys ) .
    I got to drive it back over the snake pass and I love the way it drives . Just needs a good clean and polish but with the dark notes drawing in and me working all the time , I haven't had much time . Everything seems to work fine at the moment . Cheers lee

    :welcome: from me too Lee. You've found a great forum for help & info, with some banter thrown in for good measure. I think @Domenico T Diiorio is in your neck of the woods.
