    As the weather forecast was promising for today we decided to have a run out to try a new route. The first planned tea stop was £1.60 to park, so no thank you. On to the second and it was closed for redecoration (no mention on their web site though:mad:). So we arrived for lunch a bit earlier than planned but at least it was open;). After lunch to another planned tea stop, but closed again. I suppose it is mid January and I can't blame them really. Hopefully when the better weather arrives they will all be open.

    A few photos to show that Zeds can be driven in the winter months:whistle:

    @Mrs Mint all wrapped up. Anybody would think it's mid-winter;) IMG_004.jpg IMG_007.jpg IMG_009.jpg IMG_012.jpg

    I'll give the old girl a clean tomorrow....and yes I do mean the car=))

    Looks like you both had a good day out driving. Shame that most places were closed, but the weather was on your side :thumbsup:

    Great pics...... (3rd pic looks like @Mrs Mint has been taken as a hostage =)))

    I thought that in the North, when you go out in winter, you take a blanket, shovel and a thermos of tea as standard :whistle::whistle::)

    Isn't it a bit risky folding the rear screen in cold weather? I have used my Z3 right through the winter, in fact it was out tonight, but I haven't put the roof down since the cold weather came along. I don't want to crack the plastic.

    No, just make sure you warm up the inside of the car before lowering the roof in the cold. Can't beat having the roof down on a cold crisp winters day:thumbsup:
