    We have just returned from a week long jaunt around the West Country (not in the Zed unfortunately, for reasons best known to the current Mrs S).

    Anyway, I could not believe how few Z3s I saw during the 750 mile trip, about 6 or 7 in total I think! I see more than that in and around Swansea every week.

    There were a few in Falmouth. A nice looking black 2.0 with Swansea registration (W***XCY I think) and a nice looking green R reg 1.9 both with tops down. There was also a silver one for sale in a garage on the outskirts and another parked in a driveway.

    Apart from that just a couple of fleeting glimpses on the oposite side of the road. In total, I beleieve I spotted more Ferraris than Z3s which must mean that Z3s are rarer and therefore more sought after than Ferraris which are common as muck in the South West it seems!
