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

1) after 3.5 yrs its time for a change
2) free up some cash to be spent on the track car and tow car
3) Z4 was too much money sat depreciating to be only used c2wks of the year
4) fancied a soft top

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.
