New buy- Z8: good for my fiancee?
Just popping in with a question or two (I'm not part of forums normally nor do I speak English).
Just moved to UK for a while, and my fiancee's purchased a 2003 black Z8, 500BHP v8 and a 7200rpm redline, with forged aluminum 19" wheels, 285/45 and 315/40 tyres etc etc...for me to drive. Just sport and fair fast, (depends what you've driven and been driving).
This was done using a slimy move, by deporting my Audi TT-R back into Germany (where I was last), which was running a 5-mode optional channel transmission setup, at 1012BHP max and 453BHP minimum.
But none of the car-ing is done by me for any reason but for my own self satisfaction etc, my fiancee, and some close friends.
Now I don't remember and don't really take much notice of cars, though I used to before, but is this car good in comparison to a 3sec 0-62 TT?
I have an interest in cars (no time though), but I've moved to elder production cars to learn the basics steadily, ie. E36, E39 etc, but do collect and own much.
Even still I only have assistants, associates, kith and employees who do most of the work etcetera, so they will know about the autos, while I do not.
But you guys will know in much greater breadth and depth, with more precision and defined knowledge.
Anyone care to help me out, and provide a comparison between a Z4M and a Z8? (because fiancee prefers Z8 while I thought a 600BHP Z4M was much more suited)
I do not want her to start buying to please me or rather proving to me, so a quick answer will really save me. Or having a garage for 8 cars, I'll end up with 15...
I just like the Bavarian cars, and these two models (Z4 and Z8) are perfect I suppose for all we need...a perfect mixture of the s's.
Forgive me for the English, I really haven't learnt it formally, and this is my 11th language, but this is a bit I've picked up so far.
If it doesn't make sense, I can read, so be sure to inform me, and I'll figure another way to get the message across, without anyone else aroung here knowing.
By the way a quick scan of these forums, top stuff really, a work of art...you people should be recognised, enthusiasm and dedication.
Love it! (case proven against the Germans who think the more western world does not understand the language of vehicles, even minutely)
Await your replies.

Who makes the tires you have and how do they fit under the fenders?
Bob, this guy smells "off" to me...
Re: GregJ and Grease Monkey
I don't quite understand what your saying. Its best if you use clear language, because if its what I understand, then that is very ignorant and rude...but I could easily be wrong.
Re: Bob, this guy smells off to me...
It is difficult to find an answer to all these questions.
However, I just got the idea to boost up my engine and have a slider somewhere on the dashboard where I can adjust the power between 300 and 800 horses, depending on where I go. I do need to talk to my German tuners about ways how to get there.
I'm going with the Kenyan 411 Scam...
The first bait is to start talking about the wealthy fiancee and all the cars that she is apparently buying on a daily basis. Then the move is to start taking "deposits" for said cars.
Quite elaborate but ultimately futile. This group is one of the smartest I have ever known on the internet. I always feel like the dummy around this crowd and even I wouldn't fall for this guy's BS.
WEALTHY WIDOW SEEKS U.S. BANK ACCOUNT
Greetings and Salutations my American colleague!
My name is Barrister Adam T. Darore and I represent the former wife of exiled and deposed Prime Minister Kweisi Mfume of the Central Congan National Congress of Sudan. Widow Mfume has deposited hundreds of billions of Krugerrands in various numbered accounts throughout the world but needs your help as an owner of an AMERICAN business to help her to access these monies.
Ms. Mfume must quietly move large sums of Krugerrands (converted of course to AMERICAN DOLLARS!!!) into your U.S. bank account to avoid Estate taxes and other such untidy intrusions into her financial endeavours. As her Barrister, I have been instructed to make substantial cash deposits into your bank account and, when Ms. Mfume is satisified, she will come to America to reclaim 10% of these funds. The other 90% is yours to keep as a commission for facilitating this transaction.
You may ask, why are we asking the owner of a hardware store in Peoria, Illinois to handle such a transaction for us? Let us just say that these transactions can only be accomplished by dealing with intelligent and honest persons such as yourself. One of your colleagues in America has advised us that you are such a person.
All we need is your bank account number, routing code, signature, fingerprint, various passwords and a few signed "withdrawl" slips (that's what we call "deposits" in the Congan Congress of Sundan). Please remit such items expeditiously and with due haste to our attention.
Peace, love and brotherhood under Almighty God,
Barrister Adam T. Darore, Esq.
Attorney at Law
PS - she also has 3 Bugatti Veyrons that she needs to sell quickly. Each comes with a Russian mail order bride.
