    Hello, another new Zed owner here.

    Picked up my 2.0 Z3 last weekend, and I absolutely love it!
    I have never owned a BMW before, or any roadster. In fact I have never owned what I would consider a 'FUN' car in the past.
    Looking forward to the warmer weather so I can get the hood down (tried it out during the week, but it was a bit too cold).

    Seen a few Zeds around the Swindon area, but not sure if any of the owners use this forum.

    Loving the site, have found plenty of useful information already.

    Picture attached (if it works), not had a chance to make it shiny yet, that's my job for next weekend!

    A very warm welcome from Zorg Central (which is based just outside Swindon, and Brazil ;) ) :ymhug:

    Your car is the exact copy of my Z3 which now lives with a mate, and what great fun she was! I'm buzzing around in a Z4 now...

    Will keep an extra eye open whilst driving, so if you see a grey Z4 give us as wave! :coolsteer)

    Thanks for the welcomes.

    I'm originally from East Anglia (Essex to be more precise) and I support the Tractorboys - Ipswich Town FC. Hence the name :)

    Oh, I see from your info you are in Royal Wootten Bassett. I know the town well, I was in the RAF and spent my last few years service at Lyneham.
    Still visit Bassett regularly for my steaks (from Crumps butchers on the HIgh Street) so I'll keep an eye out for your Z4!
