    Hey there fowks,

    Some of you may notice me from the other zed forum and a few associated fb pages.

    Just wanted to say Hey!!
    I'll get some pics of my car on in due course as im on the mobile right now.

    Basically I started just over a year ago with a 97 1.9 z3 and since gave it a pretty big overhaul.

    Full respray
    new hood
    facelifted the centre console
    engine cooling system overhaul
    most gaskets etc replaced on the engine
    rear suspension renewed
    brakes renewed all round.
    front top seals done.
    style 18 alloys refurbished by myself
    Simota induction kit fitted
    Just generally alot of tlc put into it.

    My dream for the car

    rear m bumper, bootlid and wider arches etc fitted with quad pipes (no m badges though i dont like that sort of thing.) Already started gathering some parts.

    Big brake kit fitted to fill the inside of the wheels.

    Find some m wheels (i think these suit the car the best)

    Renew all suspension with poly bushes and maybe coilovers.

    Then im either going to go down the road of supercharger for the 1.9 or an engine swap to a bigger unit.

    Some may say im daft but hey it keeps me happy and everybody loves a project! :)

    Cheers guys hope to get to know some of you soon

    Welcome!! If you're ever in Canada drop by for a beer or two. Sounds like quite a project you're undertaking. Good luck! JIM
