    Hi fellow Z owners - I have just collected my first BMW Z3 and I am wondering what the hell I have been doing without one for all these years??? Mid life crisis? WTF - not me, I'm still 23 !! (in my head!) My best mate also just bought one so we expect to be getting out and about to meet you lovely lot in the near future COVID allowing !! We live near Caffeine & Machine (which is near Stratford upon Avon) so we get to go and see some special motors there at weekends - will proudly take my new baby "Beryl".

    Look forward to hearing from you all - Oh BTW looking for a soft top cover (Tonneau) any tips please?

    Dave

    :welcome:to the forum from West Cumbria. If you put up a 'Wanted' post in the For Sale section peeps will see it and may have one, that aside I see @hard top has provided an Ebay link on your other post. Got any pics of Beryl :D

    Nice. Red, my second fave colour next to black :thumbsup: Keep your eyes peeled for the ///M Police though with that ///M badge, they're a strange lot ;)

    No mate. Only the mighty Z3///M has those badges, the rest of us mere mortals have none unless we have one of the ///M Sport variations.
