    Hello all,
    Just got my 1st ever 2 seater soft top. Looked at them all in my price and nothing came close to the 2.8 Z3 I bought last week. I love it!!!
    I am in South Wales and hoping to get some tips technical help with a couple of issues my zed has (nothing major). Also hoping to be able to contribute some help one day too.

    I have posted a couple of pictures. I hope you can see them!!!
    Thanks all,

    Joolz

    Welcome @Joolz and your new addiction!

    Looks in great condition from the piccies. They all have their niggles at this age, and it's probably something from the standard list of things that every new Z3 owner goes through - or are just about to :cool:

    Any questions just shout!

    Hey joolz and a big welcome from Lincoln. Fantastic cars on a fantastic forum. Loads of knowledge from people only too willing to help without talking down to you as on other forums. Great friendly banter once you get to know the members mate. Enjoy.:)
