    Certainly that one has doubled it's money. Just Googled new cost and top spec 36k
    So even a 70k miler worth cost new and with so few left can't really see that going anywhere but up

    Whilst it's a nice car I prefer the Z3 but if i had spare cash I'm sure i would purchase it. If only i wasn't a £1000 short =))

    At least the z3 doors don't disappear into the sills if you go over a humpback bridge or a big pothole. ;)

    Yep a nice car, but, to be honest I would rather have a Z8 if I had deep enough pockets.

    I enjoyed seeing that clip again. What a great car that was to ride in. It attracted a lot of attention going down the street. I was very fortunate to meet @Rev as he is quite a gentleman. He treated me very well and I enjoyed his company. I'm not sure if he still has the Z8 or even the Z4. He had a keen eye for photography and had posted several excellent photos of his Z8 in well composed surroundings. I do miss him. Great seeing the EAC dinner with the gang. Missing Mike and Sandy now. Have to start planning another trip sometime......................Frankie

    Shocked always when I see this kind of announcement... But happy to hear that are "keepers" worst than myself! I don't loose the opportunity to show to my wife, in order to improve my own image and say "look , this is really crazy , not what I'm doing! "
    On the other hand, is great to keep the car in a "delivery" condition, but I'm sure that cylinders, rings and valves are suffering from the long exposure (26 dry years) and could be compromised! Of course if the car was kept in a room with controlled air con and the engine started periodically, could be OK!
    But the best maintenance for a car is to be regularly used!
