My zed is my daily, but since I work from home...it doesn't get out much other than a couple of trips to the local a few miles down the road and occaisionally on weekends for good "burn" to clear the pipes.
Nice line-up you have though... :cheers

Mmm varies from month to month but usually my 3rd car not including SWMBO's.

My fallback daily is a loaded E350 sport saloon but have also had a rangie for the past few weeks while the weather was bad.

Can't wait to get the Z3 back on the road this summer though.

Hi Gazza, it's a great car with loads of power and torque, also handles very well I took the sportpack with the optional 19" wheels. The only thing I did not like when I first got it was the runflat tyres, they were soon changed to standard tyres which transforms the ride, but that's a problem you have with all new BMW's now. If you havent driven one yet, take one for a test I'm sure you'll be pleasantly suprised :D I've had mine for four years now and still enjoying it, no problems whatsoever.

My daily drive is a 2009 Astra twin top, in silver. 1.9 cdti(150bhp). A great folding top car. We took it all over France last year. I would have liked to take my Z, but it wouldn't have been practical for us, & the fuel bill would have been much more than taking the diesel. Even Though the Astra is a convertible, it doesn't have the same 'Grin factor' as a Z has though..
I can't load pictures to this site, or I would show you all! Also have a 2008 Astra Sportive van (also in silver) 1.9 cdti (120bhp).. I probably do most of my miles in that!

Currently a Merc E220cdi coupe. Nice enough but hugely boring, will be changing it for a BMW equivalent in the summer for my motorway miles. Possibly even a 4x4.

Lovely I have always like the TR is it a TR4 ? alway thought it was a blokes car
Always wanted one, like most cars then they seemed a lot bigger in those days
And as you say the realiable Stag never pressed any of my buttons
I think that was the original hairdressers car :lol:

Yes, it is a TR4 and I've owned it since 1997.

The Stag is actually a really nice car. I think too many people see it as a sports car and are then disappointed when they drive one. It needs to be seen in the same genre as a Merc SL i.e. a touring car. In that role it is sublime. A lovely burbling V8 powered 4 seat convertible.

The picture of it piggy-backing an AA truck was taken last year when it broke a piston

Following a fairly extensive (and expensive) engine rebuild, she is back in the rudest of health and due to take my son and I over to Spa Francorchamps for their classic meeting in May. Can't wait.

Afraid my daily is a Freelander 2, complete opposite of the zed. It does go up a lot of very rough farm tracks and off road frequently, which the zed would never manage! When it goes in for a service the dealer always remarks it is nice to see one being used as it should be.

I bought the Z to be my daily drive, but I change cars on a regular basis so you never know what will happen.
My toy is a MX5 V8 (pictured below) which I've had for 6 years now but begining to look round for another project. Probably something small and British maybe a mk2 sprite/midget or a Spitfire. Everytime I go to sell the 5 though I change my mind, it's quite nice having something a bit different.
