    Met the owner before seeing this Z3, and when he said he had a Zed with flames painted on it I was a little concerned. As I said to him it's not to my personal taste, but the quality of the paint job is exceptional! The pictures don't do it any justice at all, as it looks black but is a deep purple underneath the flames. Hopefully he will be joining up when he gets home to Kent.

    Hi GazHyde quite like the BMWCC pic of my little motor on the track, do they sell these and if so do you know who to get in touch with?
