Very few E89s

Icheong and Wraith: Your cars looking almost identical to mine, including colors.

I'm going to Costa Rica tomorrow and will look for them there. I know there's a dealer in San Jose; I did a piece...

scarcity of Z4s

As I have reported, since I got my E89 in April, I've seen one in Oregon, two in Denver, two in Holland. But the place where we saw one every other day or so was Singapore, where they buy new,...

Or,just don't install the front license plate holder, and go without it in Oregon, where the police are generally tolerant and don't bother you about this. That may be because our car registration is...

Found a place with lots of Zeds

I reported a month or so ago that in five weeks in Europe in the fall I only saw two E89 Z4s, both in Holland. But for the last three weeks in Singapore we spotted a new one almost daily: they're...

the rare Z4

And yet, as I said several weeks ago, in five weeks in Europe recently I only saw two E89s, and both of those were in Holland. In addition to Holland, I was in the South of France, where I...

Done For

The first time I saw the E89 Z4 was last April at Bellevue BMW near Seattle. When I drove it I was done for; I had to have it. I would have bought from them but they didn't have a manual...

I'm just back from five weeks in Europe (Holland, France-Provence, Croatia-Istria) and only saw two E89 Zeds the whole time. Both were in Holland: one in Amsterdam (a 2010 3.5) and one in Delft (a...

Zed sightings

We're headed soon for Europe (Netherlands, France, Italy, Croatia) I'll keep a tally and let you know. I'll look for yours in Holland, Kris. Come to think of it, I did see one a year ago in Paris,...

Z4s few and far between

Since buying my Z4 in Oregon in April, I have seen exactly three on the road, and two of those were in Denver. The other was here. We just had a week-long road trip down the California coast,...

tire sizes; places

They're 18", and I'm glad, after your horror story. I was half-hoping you'd call when you came through Eugene. Don't know when I'll get my Zed to Ontario, but we're planning a trip to BC this fall.

Too bad; Bimmerfest is international, but looks like BMWCCA, by definition, isn't.

French yellow headlights

From 1961 to 1971 I brought back four new Peugeots from France (403, 2 404s, 504) and loved the exotic aspect of the yellow headlights and my red French TT(tourist) 75 (Paris) plates. I picked up...
