    Hello,

    I've been into Alfas for a few years but this year I craved something new, so I decided on a Z3.

    I picked up a 1998 Z3 2.8 with just over 100k on it, which is in pretty decent condition, just a few niggles, such as worn seats, which I hope to change, along with a slight weep from the power steering hose... nothing a new jubilee clip won't fix.

    Anyways I look forward to getting to know the zroadster community :)

    Thank you for the warm welcome!
    I'm from North Kent, Gillingham to be precise, my Z is silver, I only have the photos that were used to sell it, which show its previous private plate, its now on its original R plate.

    I know some of them places well, a few years ago I used to do a 'breakfast run' which started off at Maidstone, made its way through all the countryside down to Rye, for the cafe, then onwards to Dungeoness.

    Hopefully I can have the zed looking and running alot better by then, power steering leak to sort out first, as I'm getting a grinding noise when starting her up from cold, but clears after a while, plus its leaving a few spots of fluid on the floor.
    Also have the mirror bases to sand down and repaint due to corrosion.
