Welcome zee zee, top site! (See what I did there?).... Why put your Z3 away for the winter? I take Zelda out for top down trips throughout the winter if the weather is good and the roads are dry. If you wrap up well, get some heat from the vents and through the seats, you'll be fine! Your Z3 will benefit from regular use, ( engine kept lubricated and run up to temperature, no tyre flatspots, no sticky calipers or other moving bits ), and you'll get the buzz from driving her. Anyway, whatever you do you're in good company with people who, as you say, are passionate about there Z's, and have a wide knowledge of fixes and tips.

Cheers,

Bonzo.

your right its sometimes hard to tell if its the bagpipes or the speakers that are shot ,but still sounds good especially at new year lol. Will be posting some photos soon , searched for a while to get the right car and found it eventually. Low miles on the clock 32k only and an absolute credit to her previous owner. She is silver with ac split rims lovely want to drive her all the time but the weather dictates , but at the moments she is cleaned and polished in the garage , but I may be a bit of a sado but get great enjoyment in just going to the garage and cleaning all the bits I have just done a few days ago. I think I have the Z fever. Just need my new system in place and it will be car bliss.

Hi she silver and 19cc engine. Compared to the other models she lacks a bit of punch, but hey great to drive.I bought the car for my own pleasure but I am surpised about the amount of compliments I get from total strangers. AS I have said previously she a credit her former owner and hope I maintain the level she is at just now. I will post some photo when I get home ..working offshore West Africa, so back for xmas cheers zeezee.
