First time z3 owner

Post by RP.ZED » Mon 25 Apr, 2016 22:17

Hi all. Finally at the ripe old age of 61yrs young I have purchased my first z3. I've owned several BMWs previously including a 2005 Z4 but I love the shape of my 2.0 ltr. I bought the car from another member many of you will be familiar with. A Mr Bertijaffa!! Who has looked after her for the last 4 years and has left me very little to do other than keep her looking good. Maybe a wheel refurb in the future but "Berti" has done an excellent job which is a credit to him. I was hoping to post a couple of photos but haven't worked out how to do it yet! (I did mention my age!!). Have enjoyed viewing the site and have met several other members recently. Looking forward to meeting others on the various rally's and meetings etc. Cheers RP.zed.

Hi... welcome to the fun... For all those things that have been done (and others that might need doing one day) this forum is a valuable source of knowledge and is always straight to the point - I personally enjoy reading the posts here even when I have no issues to review as the posts are always on topic and gives you so much knowledge without actually having the problem described.

Index of the site folders: http://www.zroadster.net/forum/index.php

As for loading photo's you need to register on a photo sharing site such as http://www.photobucket.com. You then upload the pictures into albums and you can set the albums to be public or private as you wish (default is public)

When you want to share a photo simply go to the photo and on the right hand side you will see SHARE THIS PHOTO with 4 links underneath. Click inside the box that says IMG (the box will turn yellow and say copied). Now go to your post and paste it in (either right click the mouse and paste or press CTRL+V together). You'll soon get the hang of it. The following link needs updating a little but gives a few other options http://www.zroadster.net/forum/viewtopi ... =32&t=7658

It was a pleasure to meet you and Gill has sent me a number of pics of "Miley" over the past few weeks. More over I am glad she has gone to someone who will appreciate her as much as I have.

Cheers Bert

Welcome to the forum buddy. I know the car almost as well as it's previous owner "Berti" having spent hours on whatsapp texting instructions on various projects he carried out on the car...... :wink: I know it's been well cared for and no expense spared to restoring and maintaining it in really great condition. You certainly bought a great car... :wave
