Z3 Wideboy

Guy just stopped me in Halfords car park and told me his son has a Z3 wideboy. My car (Z3 2.8 1999 model) has front 225/45 & 245/40 on rear.....Does that make mine a Wideboy?

All 2.8 are widebody (not wideboy).

Ok, thanks for that - I thought I'd never heard the term "wideboy" :lol:

I quite like the term 'Wideboy'. It sounds a bit Harley Davidson like 'Softtail'

Probably mixing up with the old Vitara Fatboy :D
