Noobs

guys, I've noticed a lot of new people joining, let's get a "welcome" thread, it would be nice if you introduced yourself and a picture of your car...

Let's make this Z forum somewhere to learn and discuss about our cars.

before you post though, take a second to search, google also works within a website
(e.g. ""hpfp" site:e89.zpost.com) and don't forget to

In reading your post Memphis1, I realized I've participated in a few discussions but never introduced myself!

My name is Dave, from Toronto Canada and here are a few pix of my new
MY11 3.0. Ordered first week of March, delivered April 15th & been a blast since. Car now has just under 3,000kms!

Nice to meet everyone
Regards
Dave

I am Kris, 45, from the Netherlands. Expecting my Z4 by mid/end July. 35i with about every possible option.

Been driving lot of cars in my life. First Beemer, fell in love after test driving the Z4.

T89; I really like them now. I knew what I was getting when I ordered the car, but wasn't 100% keen on them truth be told. They've now grown on me and I like them a lot - haven't seen any 276's in my area yet, so I'm feeling special, for now.

Thanks
Dave

So this thread is like AA for Z4 owners, we all stand up and introduce ourselves?

Me: Hi, I'm Chris from Newtown, CT. I have a deep sea blue/tan leather 2010 Z4 35i with manual tranny and navigation plus a few goodies and I've been posted here since I got my car 2 months ago. My last bimmer was a 1984(!) and in between I've been driving 2 SAAB 900 Turbos, 2 Jeep Grand Cherokees, and a Lexus IS350.

Crowd: Hi, Chris!

Hi people

My name is Yoon.
I just joined this forum a few minutes ago....
Found this forum randomly through searching on Google.
I've been in the VAG scene for all my driving life and still own a modified Audi A3 2.0T with APR Stg 2+ and BUNCH more.

Been in NY, USA for 10 years but just recently moved to Amsterdam and bought the new Z4 a few days ago. I'm still waiting for the dealer to prep, register the vehicle for me. Hopefully I will get the car sometime next week since they told me it will most likely take about 5 business days for the plates and such...

My A3 is still in NY but I'm trying to find a way to bring it over here...
Only picture I have of the Z4 is an iPhone picture I took at the dealership in Amsterdam.

Oh and btw, this is actually my very first bimmer

I will take some quality pictures when I pick up the car next week and post a formal introduction and show off some of my previous VAG cars too

This will have to do for now though...



Hope to learn a lot from this board since i'm a noob to the bimmer world

Yeah I know what you mean. I have 276's in 17" as my winter set up. The wheel design on its own is nice and I really like it. But in 17" they are ridiculously small. Get's lost in those wheel arches.

Hello all I joined a week ago. I also could not find a welcome page. My name is Rolf-Dieter and I live in the wonderful Tree City of Ontario – Canada. London, ON. I am just an old fart that loves to drive and is crazy about Bimmers. My Z4 now is my 5th one (before my 2009 Z4 I drove a 2008 Z4 3.0is, a 2002 M3, a 1987 535is and a 1985 528i)

Memphis, I think we meet, I recall you welcoming me with a MBP remark a while back.

godius, I concur in fact I always thought Memphis was a lady lol

Dave, welcome to the site neighbor, lovely car, nice interior, great wheels!

Kris, welcome and I am sure you will enjoy your car on the Autobahn ☺ BTW I fell in love with my Z4 last year in Germany.

T89 and Blue, Nice to meet you.

Z4Mike, Toe ease the pain of the wait, I recommend you visit here often and look at the nice photos.

Hello Chris and Yoon, nice to meet you and enjoy the forum.

Relatively new to the forum, joined when I stated looking into the E89 Z4. My previous BMWs have only had 2 wheels. Great fun, but with retirement approaching I picked up this ED for fun rain or shine, since its pretty close to 2 wheel fun.

Crimson over Ext'd Coral Red w/Brushed Al Trim, N54, 6sp Man, Prem Sound, Comfort Access, Power/Heated Seats, Nav, & Sport Pack.

A few photos from our recent ED - which were 18 fantastic days in Germany.
