    Sensible winter hack ;)

    Having recently sold my Z3 Roadster to Scottie, I decided to replace it with something a bit more sensible for the winter:



    It's got a proper roof and everything

    But it's got a proper roof! I don't do many miles at the moment and still got the VRS for mundane supermarket trips...

    Lovely Love these.

    Which engine?

    They're starting to become very affordable, and IMHO still look really fresh.

    Ah, I didn't realise it was an M! I presumed it would have a grille badge, and I'm not enough of a BMW geek to recognise bumper differences
    In that case, truly green eyes. Real lusting for one of them

    Looks great, and I hear it's a good improvement on the Z3 which I have to say with the hardtop is winning me over as a very nice car to drive everyday

    Is this the 3.0 Si version, about 260 or 265bhp? Nice amount of power

    I thought it would be M54, I thought the S54 came with the M3 18 inch mutlispokes?

    does it have the rasp like an e46 m3, just wondering with it being a different exhaust?
