Hello everyone, My name is Craig. I have lurked here for a while as a guest. This seems like a pretty friendly place to meet other like minded Z fans. I have been a Z3 owner for about one year and I'm still very happy with the car. It hasn't always been a smooth road as I will explain in another thread but I love the car and I love driving it. I have just completed my first longish road trip in Japan and it was fantastic. My car is a 2001 3.0i sold new in Japan with all the extras. When I got the car she had done just 38000 km, pretty usual for a car of that age here. The condition was very good and 100 % stock standard all round. The only added accessories were a navi system and a hardtop which had never been removed by the previous owner! Go figure? I'm looking forward to meeting others here and checking out your cars.
