Some pronunciations of 'beige', 'garage' and other (generally French) recent borrowings. It isn't possible and the more nativised they are, the more likely they are to become /dZ/ in many dialects (e.g. 'garage', which is a perfectly normal, every-day word, is /"g&ra:dZ/ in my dialect, whereas 'beige', being a less-normal word is still /b&iZ/.
