    Mostly just the basics, things I should be looking out for, anything quick and cheap that would make the car better, how the car likes to be driven.

    Welcome Agent B you have come to the right place for advice.

    There is only one thing you need to know about driving a Z3 and that is under no circumstances unless it is raining must the top ne in the up position it should always be down regardless how cold it is. ;) :ymdevil:

    Welcome to the group. Great bunch of guys here. Nice car. Got a 1.9 '96 myself. Always happy to see another addition from this side of the pond. Just up the coast from you near Atlantic City. If you ever get into Caesars, I deal there, look me up. Frank Tofini, (Frankie)
