I thought so too! I am a moderator and active member on a couple of MINI and Mini forums as I own both the Classic and a new MINI for everyday use and know that forums usually are the best place to pick up a well looked after exampleHello, a Z3 is a great choice to replace your little classic. There are a few folk on here who are considering selling, I'm sure they'll pop along shortly.
Buying from a forum member is good as they tend to be enthusiasts and the cars very well maintained and cared for. I'm talking from experience and couldn't have found a better example from a mere muggle!
Exactly, I do love owning a classic but he just doesn't get used that much he is isn't the most comfortable (as he kindly reminded me on Saturday when I did a 300+ mile round trip!) I also spend the whole driving him on sunny days wishing the roof came off lolThat's what I did, I wasn't getting much use out of the mini I restored and owned for 15 years.......I bought a 2.2i z3 and never looked back. More comfort, more power, more safety and the roof comes off.......!
Ha no definitely not heard that one before That does look a lovely Zed, unfortunately Lincoln is quite a distance to go and ideally I am after a manual. Best of luck with your sale as wellHi @Lytesben the old Min is great fun, here's something you'll never have heard, "My first car was a Mini" thought so. Anyway welcome to the forum from near Lincoln. I do have a 2000 2.0 Z3 Auto in good condition with only 88,000 miles on it. Loads of work done, a lot of it documented on here. In the 3rd photo you can see the reason I'm selling.

Thank you! He is rather nice, but I think having 3 cars is a little excessive lol. I have considered just popping him away in a garage as I will be sad to see him go.Welcome from Aylesbury
Good luck in your search!! I must say your mini Is awesome keep him as well as getting a Zed
I say pop him awayThank you! He is rather nice, but I think having 3 cars is a little excessive lol. I have considered just popping him away in a garage as I will be sad to see him go.
Thanks. It does look rather nice so something to consider, just wanted a manual really. I am in Somerset so a bit of a trek to Sittingbourne but for a deal it could be made I guess lol
Sounds like a great choice to me! Well I mentioned about 3 cars being a little excessive but I also have a Renault 5 Monaco waiting for some work to be done so it would actually be 4 carsI say pop him away
I currently have 3 as I just bought my second Z3 and was supposed to sell the old one but my heart won't let her go so the daily fiesta is going and me old Z3 is going to be my daily
People are amazing on here!! I have had help with getting my Zed fixed and forum members went and saw my new Zed for me to inspect it before I made the long journey
You won't find a better place than Zorg
Well tbh the Renault probably won't be touched anytime soon as it will near a fair bit spending on it but it's only one of a couple dozen left being the Monaco edition. I haven't had an awful amount of interest in the Mini yet so he might well staySell the Renault and keep the Mini and a Zed.
Not a massive fan of red but might be interested when it goes up for saleImage a nice 1.9 that I'll be selling sion, has coilovers and decent paintwork fir it's age, hell rot red, manual, MOT, about 100k on the clock, I'm in Woking, Surrey
Good luck on hunt
