    Hi everyone,

    I've mentioned in a couple of posts that I will be moving just outside Hereford around early January. Because I've not got any friends or family from that part of the UK, I don't have a clue where to go for maintenance and repairs for my Z4MR. I was hoping that we have some members who live in or around the area, who could advise me on the best BMW independent please?

    My other question is, if other members would be willing to meet up and go to car meets and show, or just hanging out or off out "hooning" as . group? Because I don't know the at at all, I am keen to start learning the area and the roads, so I can enjoy my Zed and not worry about speed cameras and dodgy roads. Last month, I drove from Oxford to Hereford and back again in a single day and it seemed like there were speed cameras every few miles and a truckload of speed changes, that made a 78 miles journey take over 2 hours long. The route my Poppa went (I was following him in my Zed), was physically the shortest, there was a good number of different route options show on Google, my iPhone X's Tom-Tom app and finally my Zed's Sat-Nav).

    I really enjoy doing petrolhead things a great deal (it's something that both Poppa and I do together, as father-son activities and gives mum the chance to get some peace and quiet!) and it was really difficult to find like minded people in Oxford, so I am preying that the Hereford area will have a really active, friendly and positive car scene.

    Cheers,


    Felix

    No problem dude,

    Once I get my Z4MR back sometime next week, I would be happy to pop out over to Banbury and we can go out for some hooning in my car if you're interested in meeting up?

    Love to but only have time at the weekends at the moment unless the wife has made plans due to working away in Cornwall Tuesday to Friday.

    I won't get my car back until the middle of next week at best, but weekends are not an issue with me, so would be happy to pop over to Banbury. I'm really keen to see how different the car will sound and feel, now all the issues have been addressed (bar resetting my roof so it knows where it is and will work again). So doing a decent run over to your neck of the woods will blow the cobwebs out.

    I moved to just outside of Hereford a month ago, and literally a mile away from me is Gerry Doverman, I popped in to check them out and was impressed, they look after a few Zeds already. They specialise in BMW, Mercedes and Porche they also have a couple of Audi trained mechanics so can look after my A3 as well.

    Thanks for that, I'm moving to Kingsthorne so not too bad for me to get to this place.
