    Well, the Z3 has hardly turned a wheel since I bought it last year, largely due to the terrible weather in Sheffield. However, looking forward to start of caravan season Hemsby and a chance to try those great Norfolk roads!

    Why Norfolk? with the great roads on your door step, been out around your way three times over the winter last one took in strines, snake pass, Chapel en le frith, Castleton Chatsworth then finishing off for Lunch in Matlock. Top down all the way weather, blue skies with Snow
    Banks. Absolute bliss

    It is indeed a fabulous area for open-top motoring but what about Norfolk with it's narrow lanes, tractors, muck spreaders, road kill and bloody caravans, not to mention the local constabulary who delight in purges against the poor holidaymakers who dare to drive 5mph over the speed limit. Sorry, Norfolk, we love you really, see you soon.
