The public display

After selling my dear Mini Cooper S (yet another garage car sold inside the cf-family) it was clear to me that the next car had to be even more special. Well, to be honest it was not clear at all. I considered everything from a used cheap car to a new diesel powered daily driver, mostly trying to justify my needs to myself. But eventually a carfreak has to do what a carfreak has to do, to buy the car you want.

So here I am behind the wheel of a Z4 Roadster, and I'm loving every minute. The car has undergone some minor (but much appreciated) modifications such as clear rear- side- and headlights and the Eibach Pro Kit springs which work surprisingly well with the M-sport suspension. I'm still on the OEM wheels and the runflats produced by satan, but this will soon be corrected.
