Post by Magnetchief » Sat 02 Apr, 2016 12:03

Hi
Just purchased a well cared for 98 Z3 M Roadster.
This things a blast!
Love all the info on the forum. Hope to contribute myself.

Realize that this is mostly UK conversations. But will live with that, was originally from Plymouth Devon.
Retired from the Royal Navy in 2000 and moved to N Florida.

Welcome to the mmmmm club.

Interesting US lighting regs for the rear number plate.

I'm sure if I ever intend on taking this thing to a track I will be visiting Randy with about $5k in my hand.
As it is the rear subframe welds / diff support look good. Praying it stays that way

Ref the license plate: old Navy expression. You would have to google it.
Can't post that on a public forum.

Ah Ha.
Now I'm not the only ex-Plymouthian to own an M. Welcome to the group and enjoy the car. I've returned to Blighty via the States( NJ) and Europe and also have a left hooker to show for it

Welcome to the Forum, the ///M looks stunning.

Are prices comparable UK/US ?

No idea. This one is pretty well sorted.
A few small issues.
Mostly resided as a garage queen.
1998 50,000 miles.
Paid just over $13,000.

Quite a lot for a 98 Beemer but I'm happy with it.

I think that's a bargain.

Similar cars here are over £10K
