Send a message via AIM to marcw
Is the bow part of the performance package?

Kidding aside, congrats on your new toy. I take it this is a US spec car? I'm wondering because it has those fugly amber reflectors.

Welcome - I think you, me and "MilitaryE89" are the only ones stationed "here". Seems you are not "PM" able, so drop me one. Easy to stop by on the next GRAF run. Not sure how your German is, but there is a really good club in Ludwighafen that has "runs" every few months, and they all speak English. The next run is Sunday in the hills just north of Heilbronn, but I suspect you'll want to get your "Zettie" broke in first.

www.z-drivers.com

Also the "other" German Club has arranged a private tour of the Z4 factory in May of 2011

Too bad you are not in the Heidelberg/Mannheim area - we don't get a lot of snow and can drive year round. i think you'll find GRAF is only 40 minutes in "Zorro 4". Unless they just put a speed limit on the A6 between Nuremberg and Amberg [you wouldn't believe how bad they screwed up the A6 between Mannheim and Kaiserslautern]. But I would recommend you get a TomTom with the safety Cameras installed as the BMW Nav doesn't show them , and it will pay for itself in 30 days. I have mine set in the passengers headrest screen, so it works with the top up and I can hear it beep 300 yds before the camera even with the top down down.

I have the identical car here in canada, got the winter wheel and tire package, and other than complete blizzards, the car is great to drive in the winter. Nice heated seats, heated steering wheel, and good grip. Its wonderful to not store the car, but to keep enjoying it.

Where in Canada are you? I am in Southwestern Ontario, not much snow here. We used to live in Northern Alberta, different snow story there of course
