    Hi all,

    Been on .net for a while and heard about .org, thought I would join the forum as there seems to be a number of members on both. Great people always willing to help and give sound advice. I have had my 2.8i Z3 for three years, really enjoy driving the Zed. I bought the car as a project/hobby and have not stopped upgrading and modding in the three years I've had the Zed.

    The car looks different now as I have changed quite a few things since this photo was taken.

    Thanks for the updated photos. I'm really starting to like the blacked out look on the rear (tail lights and behind the number plate).

    z3cade has just done similar with his Z3M. I'm seriously thinking of this for mine now, and colour coding the the side markers lights and indicators. I have the black upgraded angel eye headlamp units, so should fit in nicely.

    Thanks to all for the positive comments :) I don't have a picture from the side at the moment, will try and take one this weekend, although the weather forecast is not looking good, rain and thunderstorms :zap These cars are addictive once you start modding there seems to be no end :coolsteer)
