    Hi all,

    I'm picking up a great 2002 2.2 Z3 this coming Saturday. Has a great spec, including heated, electric seats, 25% locking LSD, Harmon/Kardon HiFi, amongst other things (huge list, actually!)

    Won't be my first BMW, I also have a 2010 e92 M3 and a 2011 e82 120d, and have owned an e46 M3 and e87 120d in the past, too. However, I've had an itch for a convertible for a long time and these are looking so right with their retro looks right now.

    Hi and welcome, looks like you have a very nice 2.2 sport, as it has the sports seats and appears to be lowered, so may well have the msport suspension pack on it, enjoy! :welcome:

    Welcome fellow 2.2 Sport owner :welcome:,

    She looks in great condition and full of toys :)

    Looking at the side on shot, it looks like its standard Sport suspension. I will dig out a side on shot of mine when I'm next on my PC to compare ;)

    That Agean Blue of yours looks really good.

    I have to admit I'm not entirely new to top down motoring, having owned an MX-5 1.8is (NB) about 10 years ago. Well, it was the now ex-wife's. Did have some fun in that, but this is a much more grown up car.

    Picked the car up yesterday. Drove 140 miles in some of the worst rain this year, not one drop in the cabin, so very pleased. :)

    Got a dry day today so going to re-proof the top with Autoglym Fabric hood treatment.
