Hello Guys and Gals,

I'm Ady, a Software Dev in the south of England (Hampshire), typically geeky and bearded bloke who is working on becoming an army wife... (the girl I'm dating is an army medic). Enough about me, you want to know about Bea.

She's a Cosmosschwartz 2.0 Z3 Roadster, and I have to say that I fell in love with her the first time I drove her. She's been been mine for 4 years now and has been there through some difficult times (I slept in her after being made homeless) so I'm getting quite attached at this point. When I first bought her she had an issue with the driver's side window that required the whole door to be replaced (not cheap) and the rear windscreen was torn to bits. She was originally sold in Limerick in Ireland, I bought her in Mayo before taking her back to Dublin. Then a couple of years later I jumped through hoops and performed various gymnastic manoeuvres to get her her very own UK number plates. She has 5 spoke 16" wheels, a K&N filter and loves driving in the snow and ice (which surprised me actually).

I will get pictures of her up soon.

Hello again, we "spoke" earlier. Nice intro. Loads of Zedders in your neck of the woods.

Hi Ady, welcome from near Lincoln. I have a 2.0 (just, it's up for sale) they're a great little car. I can see why you've become attached.:)

Although very occasionally I do lust after more oomph!! hence the K&N haha. I do plan on doing more, but she needs required work first, evidence is that she blew her water pump over the weekend.

Hello and welcome from Leicestershire. Lovely bit of the country and knew it well as I grew up around there quite a while ago now.
Enjoy the coming good weather.

Hi, nice bit of bonding with the Zed, shame about the water pump, I just replaced mine but when I took the "old" one off I found it had already been done. So I have a spare going V cheap, But they are not too dear new. Have fun.
