What are you doing sitting at your computer? I think the tires have lumps in them from sitting for awhile. I guess you'll have to drive it a few thousand miles to get rid of them. And to better listen for any problems I think you'll need to go topless. Hope you have a good winter coat and ski mask.

Well its actually supposed to be decent temps thursday and friday, hence why i chose to take it for those 2 days

I gotta say Im very disappointed with the SMG though...its slow, sloppy, rough, rolls back on hills..feels like a tranny made so people think you have a manual but you really dont, but the droptop is enough for me to overlook that...besides a z4 for 2 days for free..2.5i whatever il still enjoy it

Is this from your job, or did you rent it?

If it's from your job, do they record how many miles it has and why do you get to take it home? lol

Ugh, apart from the M Z4, I can't say I'm a huge fan of them. They feel cheap and clunky.

We have I think one SMG Z4 that comes in for service, and its like you say, its slow sloppy and rough.

Yea..on the highway, it feels really rough, especially at like 60...soon as you get to 80+ its fine but other than that it feels kinda unstable and stiff

I always found it odd how the steering wheel points to the left. When you're sitting in it, take a look at that. Once you see it, it feels weird.

Also it has electrical steering, which makes it feel even more sloppy.

I noticed that it was slanted, didnt know it was electric. When I told my buddy about the SMG (nad hes a major euro biased prick) he threw a sissy fit saying that the SMG trans is the best shit ever, and when I asked why he said "becuase its european" (mind you his line for everything)...this is why I found someone else to go to the auto show with lol
