I had the October week off and had half an idea of changing the Z4 so went looking round some garages and saw this in a local dealer. They had it in the showroom and it was the first M Sport F30 I'd seen - and I quite literally loved it the first time I saw the car!
I did look at some other options but kept coming back to this one. As the car was already at the dealer it was spec'd up, but came with a reasonable amount of options - the main ones I really wanted were the colour and the 19"s, so anything on top of that was a bonus. I did drive another which had the sport auto and all the toys, but I was happy with the manual. The Professional nav was nice, but not £2k worth of nice, and as mentioned, the car was already there so it was a case of go for this car, or wait a few months for a factory order. Happy I did go for this - while the Z4 is a great car for the summer it was beginning to get used less and less as the weather worsened.
