    Yet another cracking cruise - well done Jim ^:)^

    The Z3 behaved itself, and for once I wasn't the source of any of Billz frustation :p

    A couple of quick piccies....

    Just got back home and will echo the previous comment and those on the original thread. Brill days driving, good food and again excellent company. I am glad gazhyde has eventually started maturing into a driver :D and ditched the L plates he was using on the last cruise we all did. Mind its a wonder no one totalled there cars this one :D :D
    Well done for organising Jim.
    See you all soon

    But it was hellishly good fun in the Z3 today. Having the smallest (but loudest) engined Zed today was no real disadvantage, thats for sure.

    Really makes me want to switch back to it full time. Big decision whether to stick it out with the Z4 or go back to the Z3. :-\ Just can't make my mind up on that one...

    Yet another brill day,well done Jim :-bd
    Once again great roads and great company and the pub grub was excellent,pity JR didnt get his soup ;) ,but he made up for it with the melon,carrots and celery in his lunch box .
    Highlight of the day was that kamakazi sheep in the middle of the road i almost had the mint sauce out :D
    Finally got back 8-45 ,329mls Pure pleasure :coolsteer)

    Gaz i think you have already answerd that for yourself. Good fun or be normal :) We are thinking of upgrading next year but i am very reluctant to get rid of the z3, just love driving it too much and know i will miss it if we got rid. I never thought i would say i dont really want to upgrade a car that is over 10yrs old :) If i can find away of getting a z4 for Kim and keeping the z3 i will. Just have to see what next year brings, might win the lottery :D

    The kamikaze sheep sure added a different dimension to the cuise, as did the dead rabbit that I nearly made JR wear as a hat!

    Fantastic day, cheers for organising it Jim and thanks to everyone else on the cruise for making it such a good day. :-bd

    Gary - You looked totally at home in that Z3, like you say......having the smallest engine didn't put you at any sort of disadvantage.

    I'll upload my photos tomorrow.
