    She's having a rest off her tied feet :D

    Yep few things to do while she's off the road. Clean under the arches and making way for some new shoes!

    Each to his own I suppose, but if the roads are reasonably dry and there is no precipitation, it's top down, kit on, heater on and heated seats on half, and go. I can usually get Zelda out once a week. I don't think I could go the whole winter without my Z3 fix!

    There is still some salt residue on the road.
    Even if it's not that much, it will get on the undercarriage.

    If it was a Ferrari 275 GTB/4 or a 250 SWB or a vintage Bentley, then yes, but its a Z3. If you are that concerned, give it a hose down. A garden sprinkler pushed/pulled around under the car does the trick for its underside.

    10,000 miles and the shocks look like they were just put on! That's what not driving through the winter and rain leaves you ;)

    Yes Gaz, its original bmw spec shadow chrome. The whole wheels black then the front face misted in silver ;)

    I've always had the itch for shadow chrome and finally bit the bullet.

    This is what she will look like when there on

    Big fan of shadow chrome. Would loved to have done my Breytons that way, but they cost enough just with a powder coat and paint!
