    Hi Mike and welcome from here near Lincoln. That's a very nice looking car sir. This is a great forum with lots of info and a small amount of friendly banter too. Please enjoy both.

    Cheers, Tony.:)

    Hello Mike.

    Welcome to a certifiable car forum.

    And nothing wrong with Portsmouth. My home town. Would be good to meet a few more locals too.

    The biggest question I have at the minute is where to source a Haynes manual from. Checked Halfords and eBay but no luck. :bookworm:

    You really want to try and locate a Bentleys Z3 manual which is the definitive workshop manual. Expensive, but much better detail than Haynes.
