Re: Gedo's Z3 Progress Thread (Pic heavy)

Well, I'm sad to say that my Z3 was sold yesterday and I've moved on to a Z4. We've had great fun over the past couple of years with the Z3 which was fantastic for a 16 yr old car. I'm sure the new owner will be more than happy with her and our 'Z' experience convinced us that we'd always want some ...

Bye Bye A7 - Hello M135i

My Audi A7 went back after 2 years on lease, sad to see it go as it was a great big car but time to move on. Been toying with the idea of 'downsizing' for a few months now, decided "what the hell, your only middle aged once", and ordered an M135i in Estoril Blue. Was due to have it delivered on Tues...

You can also slightly raise the rear end when filling and...
