    Sharp intake of breath………….After a month of contemplation I’m selling my beloved Z3 3.0. I’ve fallen for the charms of another car, I need more cash to fund it so need to sell the Zed. The car has been meticulously maintained with high quality parts and is in fantastic condition. MOT’d until 23rd May, Taxed till 30th April. It has dealer stamps up to 28,000 miles then I took over the servicing. I’m a bit anal about servicing as you are about to find out:

    36,000 – Oil and filter, air filter and plugs
    37,500 – Brake fluid (RBF600), EBC grooved and drilled discs, red stuff pads and Eibach springs
    39,000 – Oil and filter
    42,500 – Bilstein B8 shocks, laser align
    43,000 – Oil and filter
    44,200 –Current mileage

    I have kept all of the original parts so the car can easily be returned to standard if required. There is a folder full of receipts and old MOT’s from the previous owner as well.

    Here are a few more details:

    Engine: Remapped to give 248BHP with 325 Torques to back it up. No smoking or rattling and it uses virtually no oil or water. It is ultra-smooth and pulls like a train. The gearbox feels like new when going through the gears.

    Bodywork: The paintwork is 100% original, as a result there are a few imperfections but nothing remotely off putting. The rare blue roof is in excellent order, It was fitted about 7 years ago by BMW (the owner at the time had more money than sense and didn’t like it in black).

    Interior: Very few signs of wear and tear.

    Chassis: The underside of the car is in remarkable condition, this car must have garaged all of its life and never taken out in the rain.

    It is a 5 speed manual, air con works fine, the active braking and traction control both work perfectly, the electric roof also functions as new, in fact, everything functions as new! The car is 100% reliable and shows few signs of being over 10 years old.

    Here are some recent pics:

    Here is the complete story of the car since I’ve owned it:

    http://zroadster.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=434

    This is a rare opportunity to buy a much loved Zed that offers serious performance at a winter bargain price, £5000.

    I’ll leave it on the forums for a bit then it will go to autotrader, eBay etc. I’d really like it if another forum member bought it but at the end of the day, it has to sell. :(

    Re: My low mileage P&J Z3 3.0 for sale

    I've only done 2 track days in the Zed and I plan to do a lot more in 2013. The Zed has been magnificent in both and there has been absolutely no impact on the car. In fact, it would happily do another 100 track days but I can't help thinking that something like a VX220 would be more suited. I've seen a couple of VX220's over the past few months that have really caught my eye.

    There is absolutely nought wrong with the car, it is just that my needs have changed since I bought it. I will be genuinely sad to see it go but I'm sure that some time in the future I'll have another. :coolsteer)

    Just to recap, the car has only done 44,000 miles and is vastly improved with the modifications I've had done.

    New Bilstein shocks
    New Eibach springs
    New front wishbones
    New EBC discs
    The pads have plenty of meat on them and the fluid has also been replaced.
    It has just been serviced.

    Every time it goes for an MOT the mechanic always comments on how little age the car shows. With a little cash and some elbow grease it could easily be made concours.

    Price drop, £5000.

    5K is extremely cheap but I want rid. I have another car lined up but can't buy it until this one is sold. It will be going on pistonheads tonight, hopefuly that will shift it.
