First or second. I vote the second. They are well defined classics. The Z4 is going to heavily saturated at the event. Go orginal.

Just my thoughts

I'm like you, cars from several BMW eras. Last time I attended my group of freinds all drove our classics, 3 E9 coupes, an '85 M5, a Bavaria, and a few 2002's including my original '73tii. I sorta felt out of place. I love all the BMW's but the event seems more NEW model oriented. Our classics were looking good, but didn't really excite the majority. Now what one should I drive?

Original owner, 1973tii
Just bought, 2003 325i
Needs details, 1985M6
Ride with neighbor, 2003 325iC

surfcitydude, take your 1973tii, problem solved.

Hey, hey, hey in your Alfa (1967), I mean your Z4 (2007) with the top down.
You probably don't remember the movie, too young, right?
