    Another cracking edition of the club magazine.

    It's interesting that every month I keep seeing more of people I bump in to on here... A nice article from Matt (Off Your Marks). Very handy as it deals with keeping black exterior plastic trim looking good. Not for the Zed but my MINI Cooper which has a lot of black plastic trim (which is quite frankly in ghastly condition) - thanks Matt, will be applying your suggestions in the next week or so.

    The Z Register section has it's usual quality of articles too, despite my second attempt at writing an article. Thought I would waffle on about Zed cruises and try and encourage some more attendees.

    Still only skimmed the surface, going to be reading for some time yet!

    Yep, another great read this month. Interesting article (p.29) on the (lack of) hill start assist on the new z4 inspite of what it said in the advertising material. Seems like a bit of an oversight by BMW /:)

    I was reading my copy tonight too and I have to agree about the lack of hill start assist on the Z4 when it really is such a simple thing to incorporate on modern vehicles with electronic handbrakes is quite a boob for BMW to make.
