On to a new phase in your life. And it is mostly a great one. I am happy for you both.

Hell no.

Sarah was already looking at a new car.

The Z4 will probably go on the chopping block eventually. I'll probably use this as an excuse to buy a truck that can tow the Camaro.
Super Crew F-150. Ariel has hauled our kids around in it since they were about one year old. And it pulls great! Ask Jim :wink:

Yeah, those are on my short list. Those ecoboosts seem to have plenty of towing capacity even though they are V6s.

Shoot, the 2.7 I just picked up is rated at 8500. That's almost any car on an open trailer.

Thanks! Honestly, I would have been disappointed if this thread didn't turn into a "what car are you buying" thread.

Probably going to pick up a 135i for kid hauler duties to replace the wifes Z3. Gawd, thats a fun little car.

As an aside, the Z3 will be on the block next week if everything goes according to plan.

You get much trunk space in there with the top down?

The 135i is a hard top. It actually has a surprising amount of trunk space considering how small it is. Its also pretty healthy for only 300hp (like I'm reasonably certain it isn't stock).

Sorry, I was referring to the Z3. I thought it was a Z4?
