Re: Time to sell up..98 ///M Roadster 45k miles Estoril Blue

As much as i would love to take the ///M other factors are also stopping me take it. I dont have a garage at my overseas property meaning it will be sat in the sun (covered) and would also become a daily car. After 13 years and 30k miles (the miles I have driven it) I am happy to have owned it and r...

Re: Time to sell up..98 ///M Roadster 45k miles Estoril Blue

We have had some brilliant runs. Some of the quickest. I bought a place abroad a few years ago and spend half my time there. Its now time to move out there (next year), so have to be realistic about what I can take across. Excise duty would be too much because of C02 and tax each year 640euro :shock...

Well folks..... I am getting ready for my move overseas and unfortunately, import duty and annual road tax does not make economical sense to export the car. The car is a June 98 ///M Roadster in Estoril blue with blue/black leather interior. It comes with a hard top in Estoril. The car is mostly un-...

Hey Alfie,

Good to see you still knocking about in here. I remember the last day be went through a national trust park and ended up in Tebay at which point a lot of folk headed off home.

I will see if I can look up any of the old members...Just realised that that was 10 years ago!

Hi Guys,

I wonder how many are still around that attended this run? It is a memorable weekend.

If there is anyone still around, does anyone have the routes? The last day in particular?

Great if you have, I would like to redo the last day.

Thanks,

You won't need a map and you will not need to worry about keeping up. There is a cruise etiquette guide somewhere on here written by Spokey I think.

Re: New Roof Tomorrow

You will see them on the back quarter of each side of the roof. Apparently most have them apart from the very early z3's. They help to take some of the tension out of the roof when you are lowering it (I think). I am sure someone on the forum can confirm.
