Re: nice z3 3.0i om the bay

It does look like a nice, cared for example.

I reckon it is "competitively priced" because of the high mileage. Some punters will be put off by that regardless as to how well its been maintained - which may be a pity.

Re: Le Mans 24Hr

I went to the Classic Le Mans last year in my TR4, but will not be going to the normal Le Mans this year. Instead this year, my son and I are going to the Spa Francorchamps Classic in late May. We are going a roundabout sort of way, calling in at Compiegne then to see the old racing circuit at Reims...

Re: Amazon Sale 4pm today, c-tek battery charger

At £60 it is still comparatively expensive even though it is a well known brand. I bought a charger from Lidl a couple of months ago for £12 (?) when they had them on special offer.

Re: AFTERMATH....and 2013.

Which makes me wonder if anyone else on here will do that sort of mileage in their Zeds this year? I get the impression - I might be wrong - that many of them on here are pampered, high days and holidays cars. Mine is still pampered and will be fastidiously maintained within an inch of it's life, bu...

Re: AFTERMATH....and 2013.

My plans are quite simple really.

To keep driving my little Zed throughout the year. I reckon I'll do around 30,000 miles in it this year (if not a bit more)

I've done 10,200 since I bought it in August. :lol:

Is this the lowest mileage Z3?

As much as I think it looks nice, if you start using it, you potentially reduce its value.

Interesting - and slightly worrying - about what you say about bodyshops.

I don't want to spoil the fun, but your insurers are likely to increase your premium next year "...because you are the sort of driver that people drive into...".
