OK. I'll add you to the list on the other thread. Let you know where and when when I've done the test run.

Cheers

Off head I reckon if you come over to Melton Adrian, will meet you there then Oakham, Corby, Kettering then onto the A14 and M11 for the last stretch. :) Brian. Will meet at McDonald's Ollerton and go from there as you know where that is and it's a good starting point for us. :)
Hi Dave/Brian

I'll come over to Maccy D's in Ollerton and drive there with you guys if that's OK, what time you plan on being there ?

Hi all, I'm quite new to the forum. Purchased myself a Z3M Roadster at the end of last summer. Been busy getting her up together & would really like to meet some other owners so would like to be added to the Duxford car show in May.
Thanks Jason.

As for Pete (Koolflyer) he's on nights but said he was going to see if he could pull a swift one! If he does I'm sure you two could meet us together somewhere. :)
Swift one pulled..... and I've got the Saturday night shift off (but on standby), which means....I'm good to go, also RockyDave is back from 'down under', so don't go without us! We are from the Loughborough area so probably best meet you guys in pork pie land?? Melton. If I get called in I'll probably ride shotgun with RD and have a snooze on the way down.Zzzz :drive

Still gotta work Sunday night tho, so won't be leaving late :bawl:

Hi All

I would like to tag along, if you don't mind. Just got mine back on the road. Much appreciated if you could keep me informed of the time you are all meeting up.

Thanks.

I've been asked by the BMW Car Club if there are any volunteers to help marshall on this event. It needs someone who can arrange all the Zs - any helpers?
Sapphire black/Imola red and black interior/ red roof/ S54 - the only RHD one made.

I think that the show entrance opens at 09:30 but the EAC (and others) have usually (always?) arranged to meet first at the John Barleycorn for coffee before going into Duxford. Some people could well be going straight into Duxford.

I will be there but not in the Zed, as some of you know I'm a Yank fan so I'll be in this

It's the John Barleycorn in Duxford Village. If you Google it it will give you the postcode. Meet 9.00-9.30 I think.

Hi, big shout out to everyone who helped me at Duxford with working out why my roof was trying to over take the bonnet and sit on top of the windscreen.

I purchased 2 new centre pins (£4 each) and having fitted them and now the roof falls in line as it should...let's hope that helps it at speed :D

Now for the external temp sensor, where I have found the brown and blue wire but no connector...

Thanks all, very much appreciated.
