    Welcome to the forum Topperz :ymhug:

    Sounds like you have a Sport edition which basically came fully loaded as standard. Look forward to seeing the pics and just how long do you think you can resist without modding it's a very difficult affliction to resist. ;)

    Re: Just a quick hello

    Welcome from me also Topperz
    Black and yellow sounds like one of those lovely marmite cars.
    That's not meant as a criticism - it's (one of) my favourite colour combos ;;)
    Can we have some pics please?

    Further to Gary's pic, you may find this useful:

    Hi
    Build date 04/2000
    Cosmos black Swartz
    If that helps,and yes it is marmite colour,never thought of that,lucky I luv marmite lol
    The seats are the same as the Z3m I think,it also has door trims inserts,gear, handbrake, and a section of the stering wheel in marmite ,might have to fit a 240 inverter and install a pop up toaster
    Nooooooooo I'm starting modding already :coolsteer)

    Oh and Titan the arch protectors look great,many thanks

    Re: Just a quick hello

    With that colour combo you might have an "Individual" spec which was offered to buyers who could specify different colours to what were normal options. If you check on wheel arch adjacent to the paint colour label you might have another label which will say individual on it. If you have then you have a rarer bespoke Z to cosset :-bd

    Even so that colour combo is pretty rare anyway.

    Re: Just a quick hello

    It will be very individual (if not unique) with the addition of a toaster
    It could even be a (Br)Z(ead) Toa(d)ster ..... :(|)

    Re: Just a quick hello

    Will have a look for the individual bit in the morning,the more I read the more I think I got a bit of a steal complete with the personal plate,the plate has to go though,as I have my *70PER plate on retention :-?
    Cannot find anything about the individual bit on the car

    Re: Just a quick hello

    Err, not sure to be honest. Were they taken with a camera or phone camera? Just wondering if you are holding a camera phone upside down - and yes I know that's a stupid thing to ask...

    If you get stuck, email them to me directly gazhyde @ zroadster.org (remove the spaces) and I'll rotate and add them for you!

    Hi
    No all taken via ipad,and yes all the same way,now it gets even stranger,I have uploaded them now,I did edit them and rotate them but still the same when I previewed the post, so went back and changed them in my photos and uploaded again,now some are the right way and some the wrong way,but when they are enlarged they are all ok and the correct way round
    Welcome one n all to topperzzzz turvey world :camera [-x :ymbringiton:
