    Welcome @Bazza :welcome:

    I'll be at the West Country Cruise as well. The last was one was an excellent weekend all round, very memorable!

    That's a lovely looking Zed you have too, so will be nice to meet it on the weekend. Looks very well cared for :happy:

    Up until a few months ago I did have a black car - Pug 207. It did look good when it was polished up, so I can see where you're coming from.

    Just picked up on this. You must have named Zelda after my 2.8. She's been called Zelda since March 2012. But hey, great minds think alike. Mine's Montreal Blue, beige Oregon leather, wood trim, Alpina 20 spoke soft line alloys plus other options. The centre armrest is great, perfectly positioned for gear changes. Yup, your Z looks really super.

    Hi, Bonzo totally agree great minds do think alike, had my 2.8 from 10/8/12. I remember when they first come out and though one day I would like to own one a true roadster the first for a long time,
    but with two kids it was not an option till I manage to get them married off thank god, I just wished I had got one sooner, only use her for weekends or sunny days she's got 37K on the clock and drives
    just as she did when she left the factory and totally standard, we have had some really good weekends touring the west country and now hoping for a summer like last year.

    Great looking example.

    Stirling grey is the fastest colour, though. Everyone knows this.
