    A very warm welcome and congratulations on buying your Z3 it certainly looks like you have at least one who approves. ;)

    It is always a pleasure to see a member from overseas so when you get chance I think we would all appreciate some more pictures. You should certainly have the weather in California for plenty of top down motoring we are just getting into the better weather season over here in the UK after most of us have been hibernating.

    Please take time to have a good scout around the site especially on the home page where you will find links to the Wiki pages with lots of information you will fnd very usefull.

    Thanks all for the kind words. I have spent some time in the U.K. so have a soft spot for the U.K.

    Anyway, here's a better pic of the Z3 from Monday, just before the rains started again.

    [​IMG] and a big Zorg welcome from me too.

    Great to get overseas members .... looking at your tan roof reminded me of mine ..... I had a terrible time trying to keep it clean for 8 years, in the end I changed it for racing green.

    Your passenger looks very pleased with the new ride with a panoramic view :D

    Welcome from me too!

    Sent my mind back to last summer's road trip from Las Vegas to San Diego, to SF then inland to Reno and then finally the petrol head's mecca, Bonneville. Happy happy days.

    Want to swap countries??? :)

    Welcome Leo. Nice Zed :-bd

    I was in your neck of the woods this time last year, had a fantastic time. Managed to tick off something that was on my bucket list - drive a convertible along the PCH from LA to SF - awesome! :D :D

    Couple of pics I snapped...
