    Can you really blame Z4 owners for wanting to have a good looking car?

    I have two teenage daughters, both of whom have expressed interest in taking the wheel of the Z8. I told them that I intend to take very good care of the car so that it will be a treasured heirloom that may one day be bequeathed to them; in other words, they can drive her over my dead body!

    I have a good excuse not to let my kids drive my Z8.
    Firstly, I don't have to worry about my 28 y.o. daughter since she has no interest in learning to drive a manual tranny.
    But my son, who is 23, gets the truth directly from Chubb Insurance. No one under 28 is allowed to drive the car, & anyone else would need to supply a copy of their drivers licence.
    So I have 5 years to find another excuse . .

    I guess the auction as ended and the ....

    Replicar kit is no longer available. But here is another link from Carscoop that references the same eBay idea, except the one on eBay I saw was similar but not exactly Z8 Topaz Blue, it looked more the color of the Z4 Blue that is available.

    Definitely an improvement over the Z4's flame side styling.
