    Haven't we all just a little bit where our Zeds are concerned.

    I think your decision to have 2 just means there is no squabbling over keys :D :coolsteer)

    Happy Zedding x 2

    Ive thought of it for months now - but my criterior seems a bit high in finding one. Had a brand new tintop for 8 days recently and loved it, but would like to try a Z4 before doing anything to compare the two ;)

    We can't get any more cars on the drive until the kids have gone, 5 cars and a caravan occaisionally.

    Good to see another project being revived cos you didn't really buy it just for the hardtop did you?

    Well actually .....yes we did!

    But she drove over 200 miles without a blip and great on fuel, so at the moment she's earned a reprieve.

    So are you one of the people that will want two vehicle passes for Zfest? I do hope so =)) I likes that if so please just send me the details identified in the post for Zfest. Big grin I likes the idea of a load of us arriving with two zeds! If my grin got any wider I might have trouble with my ears being on different planets. =))

    Oh and I forgot to say they both look wonderful and even better together :coolsteer)

    Thank you, La_vida_diver

    I'm afraid if we make it to zedfest we'll only be bringing the 2.8 as the 1.9 does need some tlc to bring her up to spec. :(
    Any changes, you'll be the 1st to know. ;)
