    We almost had a full compliment of Zed models today.

    2 pre-facelift Z3s, 2 facelift Z3s, 2 E85 Z4 roadsters, 1 E86 Z4 coupe and an E89 Z4 Roadster! If Tricky could have turned up in both his Z1 and Z4 Coupe we would have have the set.

    Here are a few of the pics from me! Fantastic day out.

    Guys First I have to thank you all for such a fantastic welcome and amazing day! ^:)^ :D :D :D

    Jim I forgot to get you to sign Zed Driver Bears passport so can we sort it out by post please. (still need my Dunces hat Board. LOL)

    Zed Driver Bear appeared to go down a storm with the ladies the Guys were a bit overwhelmed (I will put up pics as proof when I get back from the states)

    Finally Board asked for someone to use the GPSies app and I did but over lunch my phone died and in powering down lost the stuff before lunch. HOWEVER the driving road to die for IS saved and I now just have to work out how to get it from my iPhone to Board!

    As I said guys thank you so much for one of the greatest day of driving I have had! ^:)^
