    Before I bought the Z4M coupe I had a 2.5i soft top roadster the same colour as yours. Got rid of it though as in winter I had to scrape the ice from the windscreen "inside" the car. Was lovely in the summer though ;)

    The MG ZT has been retired and replaced with an 08 2.2 derv civic.

    Had it for 2 odd months now and put 6,000 miles on it, added bluetooth phone and music streaming and it's a nice little goer

    I'll assume it's the 3.0 :thumb:

    I'm just starting my first winter with a Z4 roadster and on these weeks were it just rains non-stop I'm finding the car just loves to steam up! Luckily the demist is brilliant, won't help when it freezes though.
    Did you try using one of those unibond humidity absorbers? I'm tempted to stick one in one of the cubby holes behind the seats (where the sub woofer can go) and see if that helps.

    throw it on the dash when you leave the car. When it's 'full', chuck it on a radiator in the house for a day or two and it will be back to the way it was to start....

    I owned the soft top for 5 years and yes every winter I had terrible problems with ice on the inside and on a damp morning I did have to wipe a lot of water from the inside of the windscreen to the extent of having to wring out the cloth.

    I also noticed a white powdery tinge all over the inside of the soft top.....was easy to remove but it soon came back.

    After chopping it in for the coupe I dont really miss the freezing interior of the roadster.

    Technically the 7er fits, but I've never had the stones to try when the garage is empty (something like an inch tolerance all around) and now it's side if occupied by a workshop.

    The V60 is a bit too long the way I've got the shelving across the front at the moment. If I were to move that, it would fit, but chances are it will remain outside anyway.

    I'll reserve the non-workshop half of the garage so I can have an excuse to fill it with something single-mindedly hoonable one day :D

    I am so jealous! You lucky bugger. I love the V60 Polestar. It's a bit of a beast, plus you get the Volvo seats (which are usually very comfortable). :)

    Bet no one else even knows what it is!

    I'd be tempted to remove the "V60 T6R" badge and just leave the Polestar square.

    My mom laughed at me when I told her I was gonna build a car out of spaghetti. You should have seen her face when I drove pasta...

    The seats are simply fantastic, the Polestar ones are even a step up from the standard Volvo ones, although the nubuck seatpad makes it a little less comfortable for adjusting your butt en-route (but does mean your butt doesn't adjust itself when you're pressing on).

    It is under consideration, actually. Probably one of those things I'll never get to though.

    Who, me? I do not, why do you ask?
