Hi All,
My name is Reuben and I've recently turned 21, I live in the United Kingdom in a small village on the outskirts of Northamptonshire.
I have a few hobbies, I am a member of a tennis club in Northampton and am competing in the single and doubles box leagues. I have previously enjoyed photography and video editing however am currently without a decent camera. I also do some freelance graphics design in my free time when I'm not working. As well as this I am of course a petrol-head and can't wait to start attending any Z-Roadster events and any other car shows/events.

For my 21st birthday I have been really lucky and been passed down my BMW Z3 3.0 2001 finished in Titan Silver with a complimenting black interior and hood. My dad owned the car previously and I'm sure he's on the forum somewhere.

My Z3 has done just over 142k miles and is generally in good condition for her age, she does need a few bits of rust sorting out on the outer sills (Possibly inner sills as well.) as well as some small imperfections around the badges on the boot. So if anyone has any recommendations of anyone they'd trust to do that sort of work around Northamptonshire/Buckinghamshire they'd be welcome.

I am also going to need to replace the drivers seat at some-point as there is quite a large tear in the leather.

I look forward to being involved in the community, I've heard it's a great one to be a part of!!
Here's a couple of pictures of my Z3:

Thanks for the welcome! And yep fortunately it’s not as bad as I thought to insure, under £100 a month. Which I thought was reasonable given my age and 2 previous claims .
