Mark in TX , which is also a member here, is visiting Hamburg right now. I think it's the first time that two Bimmerfest members from the two continents met each other personally.

As some of you may already know, Mark bought a magic-violett Z1. I had posted some pictures of the car sometime ago.

Anyway, Mark picked the car up today and we went for a short drive. He said that it's his first time in Hamburg and he doesn't know the city at all, so he let me to drive it :)

This car is a blast to drive. It was one of the best driving experiences I've ever had. Excellent handling, excellent steering, excellent feel, everything was excellent with this car.

If you don't want to get infected, do NOT drive a previous model BMW :D I'm not saying this to start another war, but it IS really different. Believe me. After driving Mark to his hotel in the Z1, I got in my car and it felt like a truck, LOL.

PS : We'll take some pictures tomorrow, I'll post them soon.

So, you are comparing the driving experience of a large automatic E46 to a rare 2 seat Z1 roadster...hmm
I'm not comparing anything. I'm just saying that my car felt like a truck after driving in the Z1 for an hour or two (which is correct :) ). And I'm also saying that the driving experience of the Z1 was fun.

That is one beautiful car . . . it looks like a ton of fun to drive.

That is pretty cool that you guys got to meet . . . I'm in the states and haven't met a bimmerfest person but here you guys are from Germany & texas and you meet . . . pretty amazing !!
It is amazing indeed. He'll probably be busy tomorrow, needs to go to the dealer etc. If we have time, we'll wash the car and take some pictures with some nice scenery.

I think your title should be changed to:

E46 defender !!!!
No, I think his title is OK, he indeed needs some LSD :D

Amazing!!! :D

Is Mark still there? Bring him to test drive an Alpina or something! :D

Btw, here's the ALPINA Z1.
Yes, he's still here. He's looking for a set of Alpina wheels for his Z1. But, AFAIK, Alpina is not very cooperative regarding the wheels. Apparently, they don't want standard Z1s looking like RLE :dunno:

But, again, it's a fun car to drive. One problem is with the top on it's a PITA to get in and out of the car :D
