Name: Mark Topliss
What make is your vehicle? BMW
What model is your vehicle? Z4
What year is it? 2005
Does it have a nickname? Not sure, when I drive the car, Jenni always calls it 'slow down'!
What engine does it have? 3.0
What colour is it? Sapphire Black
When did you purchase it? 02/2020
Where did you buy it? Private sale
What attracted you to this particular vehicle? Spec and price
How have you modified it since purchasing it? Changed the wheels
Do you work on the car yourself?  If not, where do you get your work done?  Local independents.
Generally, what do you love about it? Compared to my Z3 it's a better all round package
If you had to pick one piece of the car that you just love to look at, hear or touch, what would it be and why? An all round nice looking Z4
Tell us about the best drive you've had in it. When I lived in Regional Victoria, the quiet side roads were a 'blast' and I possibly had the car at the legal max speed limit / limiter perhaps!
What about the worst drive? Why? Round the city, no tickets for 37 years, then caught doing 65 in a 60!
Any improvements/modifications/restorations planned? Re-upholster the seats
In two words, how would you describe it? A blast.
Is there anything else about your car that is of interest (i.e previous celebrity owner, raced, a show winner, limited number in Australia)? No
