Re: What did you buy your Z3 this week ?

Recently replaced all four tyres with Goodyear Eagle F1s - should have done so ages ago, as the car behaves really well on them. Then this week replaced the wiper blades (no shortage of rain lately :( ). Got some Michelin Stealth 20" on offer now in Asda for £7.50 each. They look fine and clear the ...

Hi Pete - the mix of aviation and Zeds is a good one, we really enjoyed the event at East Mids with you a while back.

Please put Lesley, Me and our Red Zed on your list to meet at Six Hills.

Re: New plastic toy

Hi Gazza, Congratulations, looks great in red (perhaps i'm biased, my Z3 being in that colour). A unique car. Took a look around Hinckley Leics, today as they had a host of classics in the town. There was a nice black Z1 there getting a lot of attention. Enjoy the open top, door down motoring. Mark ...

Hi Wavesong and welcome to Zed ownership. Like you I'd admired them from afar for too long then got mine 3 1/2 years ago - they are great fun. Yours looks mighty fine, and that rear screen looks in good clear condition. Just a note of caution here, avoid putting the hood down whilst it is cold (say ...

Hi Ci, Count me in too. We did a loop around Yorkshire in the Zed mid June staying in Harrogate, Scarborough and near Beverley.
