    Today's the day we say good bye to two cars off the Rice's fleet.
    Picking new car up today so the daily's going.
    Never really got attached to this one although its a really good car

    And then the tearjerker. After much work and sole searching its time to let go to Monty. Saying good bye to something not just a lump of metal but something special that introduced me to the world of Zedding. Great memories in this car that will be with me forever.

    Beautiful. I have a 330d M Sport GT in white. Best car I’ve ever owned. And scary quick.

    Word of warning. It’s a very bulky car and I found it took a lot of getting used to where the wheels were and scuffed my alloys a few times in the early days.

    Here’s Zohsza.

    Know what you mean, looks massive at side of the Z4 much bigger than the standard 3 series, and yes taking lots of care kerbside.

    IMG-20181020-WA0001.jpg Looks like the 3 GT is a common daily for zedders.
    A little more practical than a zed!
    and still leaves a little smile on your face though nowhere near the zed, Enjoy.
