Re: My Z3 2.8 for sale

Thanks John, an interesting phase and the typical sites are a little misleading with a good handful zeds at 6-8 but willing to drop and see what happens, but if the level I want does not match a buyer, it's just fate that it's a keeper for another long period. It's a good dilemma to be in I would th...

Re: My Z3 2.8 for sale

Good feedback, think I started here because of the autotrader market. Will re-look at the price over the coming week to account for private sale. I would consider offers on the other end of my current asking but if it's not going, I will decide if it's just fate to keep :wink:

My Z3 2.8 for sale

Hi All, Just to say that due to continuing lack of use and with work commitment, the car for this year and certainly next year would get little further usage. Please follow link to the advertisement and I would consider offers obviously. http://www.classiccarsforsale.co.uk/detail/motors/classic-cars...

Testing the water

Hi All, With working in the city and travel by train the zed has seen little more than 500 miles each year, for the past 3 years. So I'm testing the water for a possible sale. So please if anyone knows of an interested future zed owner pass on the link below; http://www.classiccarsforsale.co.uk/car-...

Hi All, thanks for the replies. This is encouraging news and all the insurance companies you have mentioned will be my option very soon.

Classic insurance

Hi All,

Just starting to think over our car situation and with the zed used very little as a 3rd car does anyone have their zed classed as a classic car status insurance? If so, who are you with?
