HI all, Just came across this forum and decided to register, I have owned several mx5's in the past including a current project, whilst i was looking for a mk2/3 mx5 one of my friends left me he Z3 for a week, for me to carry out a service and tidy it up a bit. What can I say, I fell in love with the motor and decided that I had to have one, months went by, ended up with an E46 328 Sport ( I know far away from a Z3 ) but it was my first BMW after all. I ran that for a few months tidied it up and then the time came to sell it and resume my hunt for a Z3. I ended up with this. Is a 1997 1.9 In Cosmos black. the previous owner had the bootlid and bonnet wrapped in Carbon effect vinyl, I am still not too sure about it, but I can be removed once I become totally sick of seeing it. The car was cheap enough and came with Full service history down to the last mile, so so far so good. here are a couple of pictures.
