The Z4 MC has gone to its new home, hope he enjoys it as much as I have



In comes a 2000 boxster S with original ambers, and smooth riding 17s, I think it looks just right, no need for embellishments.

Thoughts so far:
Missing the long bonnet and shove of the Z4
The Porsche handling takes bait of getting used to...
Steering can get a bit light under power, engine is nice and smooth (new 5k ago)
It's nice to hear the engine with the roof off, but it could have a bit more noise

Jobs,
Paint badge and stick it back on
Polish the back end, don't think it's ever been polished, the paint is like sand paper.
Fit a back box with the wadding taken out
Other than that perfect

It's a bit dirty

Before you polish the paintwork, clay it, that will remove the sandpaper texture!

Just polishing it will inflict further defects into the paint smile

I was going to say the same, presuming its soot and brake dust related a good going over with 'Iron X' and 'Tardis' or similar could be well worth it prior to claying too. Can also use these on the wheels.
