Hi and greetings from Sweden





For the past year I been on the hunt for a z4 driving all over Sweden testing different cars an it didn't click I never felt like this is the one I dreamt off.
End July and in my hometown of Falun the bmw dealer gave me a tip on a really nice z4 for sale the car was almost mint and low mileage so it ended up outside of my price range.
On my way home I drove by the Merc dealership and I cold se a q glimpse of a roadster in the window sadly it wasn't a z4 ...but my wife said "were here take it for a test drive u never know".
So it turns out my dream car is a roadster I just got the Germans mixed up:laugh:.

Hi

Nice story. My journey to SLK ownership was the same. I test drove a Z4 and was left somewhat underwhelmed. I subsequently drove an SLK and thought 'YES!' :grin: i also spoke to my mechanic for his opinion on the two cars and he said the MB was better engineered. I started with a 2009 R171 280 and now havd a 2011 R172 350 (with an interlude with a Mk 4 MX5).

Anyway, welcome to the forum. I havs frequented many car forums and IMO this one trumps the lot for it's friendliness and general helpfulness. You'll be well looked after here. Enjoy!

Barry
