The Faringdon Folly
Well, after a year and a bit without a car, and a change of circumstances, I have had to buy some new wheels.

So, obviously, being single and middle aged, I went out and bought a 2.0 Z4, with 120,000 for a shade of £2k. It has a few shabby bits, but has no undue squeeks or rattles.

Is it quick? Nah, not really

BUT, it has a nice fruity aftermarket exhaust, and the roof comes off, has a decent sized boot, so what's not to like!


I had looked at similar value MX5s, and my god do they rot. MR2 was also on the list, but there is no luggage space.

Don't they sound like NASCARs with a simple modification to the air intake though?
