    My bro has been given a BMW by his new employer and offered me his Saab.

    Most hairdressers don't get paid enough to buy a Z4, they drive MX5s

    I wanted a Boxster, but the 900 service costs put me off, even Network Managers have to draw the line somewhere. The Z4 is almost as much fun as a Boxster, albeit a lot slower unless you go for the 3.0. You should try one......

    Cheeky begga Good job mines the wifes then lol

    Having a Boxter means one thing... You couldn't afford a 911 Z4 is a nice car, not loads about. I think Dominos thinking about the Z3, now that is a hairdressers car.

    Stereotypes are wonderful aren't they?

    In fact, I test drove several MX5's before settling on the Z4. My biggest problem with the new MX5 was not being able to get a good driving position otherwise I would have bought one, despite the 'hairdresser' comments.

    I have never worried about what people think of what I drive.... I have read that the Z4 is something of a 'gay' icon in the US....

    For me it's a great drive, and dropping the roof on a fine day brings a smile to your face. I have lost count of how many times I have ended up with a scorched scalp though, being follically challenged.

    My wife refuses to let me wear a baseball cap..... says I am too old...

    Same here that's why i drove a Hyundai for 3 years. As for scorched scalp try taking of your sun glasses off when you have been out for a afternoon drive in the summer!

    Kids, white glasses marks are seriously uncool.

    I drive bangers...heh..Had 2 Maestro Autos, currently got this:



    A nice, very tidy 102k Astra 1.6 Automatic. It's an ex-motability Merit spec, so electric nothing, basic of basics. Suits me! 2 week tank as well.

    I was considering the estate - it seems to be a common "techie" theme, but it's got plenty of hauling room anyway.

    The most expense I've had was a 260 head gasket change and full service after we did a landy-esqe "ford crossing" with water coming up the bonnet. The rest is just 25 tyres, and 15 services.

    I had a 2.0 diesel Maestro because I towed a humping great boat trailer for School Sailing. I have to say it was excellent. Performance was about the same with or without the trailer. We now have a towbar on the minibus so I got myself a Daihatsu Sirion. Just coming up to three years old and 9500 miles on the clock.

    Hairdresser's may get paid less, but they get tax free tips, they go a loooong way!

    Good ole Maesty/Monty diesels, powered by that giant of engineering, Perkins of Peterborough. Was it a turbo diesel by any chance? seen a few people open those up for some serious shifting
