    hi,
    I'm Alan, just bought my first Z3 last week, something to take my wife out in,(won't go on the motorbike), was looking to maybe take part in a couple of fun rallies in the later part of the year and abroad next year. In my dottage and looking for hobbies for when I retire, thought this was a good option.

    I wish I had money, capable of doing a lot on it myself, don't have workshop at the moment though.

    HI Alan and welcome from me another Scottish member in South Ayrshire. :welcome:

    I organise the Scottish run each year here is the link to this years event ( assuming that it all falls into place with covid on the go) but will definitely be putting something together if my original plans can't go ahead ( putting backup together)
