    G'day. My name is Bob, and I live in Sydney. I bought Margaret's 1998 1.9l low-mileage Z3 a couple of months ago for her birthday. If I'm clever enough I'll attach a picture of her with Z3 and champagne when we arrived home after driving it from Adelaide to Sydney. Summer is just beginning here, perfect for a Z3, but it'll have to take its turn with my other toys.

    I found this forum when I was searching the web for a solution to the rocking seats, and found Zedonists excellent article (and what a great name!). No more rocking seats now!

    Hi Bob and welcome to the forum, we have a few members on here from down under.
    Is the other car a Westfield?

    :welcome: Bob. Yes a fine starter Z3, but it won't be long before you hanker after a big 6 and then you can hold your head high;)

    Bonzo and Z3lda:D

    Not a Westfield, nor even a Caterham, but a genuine 1967 S2 Lotus 7

    Hi Bob,

    Good to hear you got the seat bushes fitted OK and you are now enjoying your Z3 as it should be. I think it would be good to say most of us are envious that summer is just starting where you are considering winter is just starting here in blighty. All the best and just give a shout if you get problems as everyone is extremely helpful on here.

    Hi Bob, A warm welcome from me too. I live in the South of Sydney and own a 1997 Z3 1.9l which I bought in Melbourne early this year. I have recently fully serviced the car myself and planning to replace the seat bushes soon. - Kith
