Just wondering...z3 owners in East London / Essex?

Post by Dave'z3 » Mon 25 Apr, 2011 19:39

Hey I've seen a lot of z3s around recently and I was just wondering who out of the rabble on here is local. I'm Dave 'n im 24. Would be great to hear from people and maybe talk about a meet up?

Anyway hope everyone has had a good bank holiday weekend!

Hi Dave,

I'm currently in Pilgrims Hatch near Brentwood, having just moved from Hainault so I guess I fall into the Essex / East London crowd.

I could be up for a meet at some point over the summer..

That sounds good. I've been on 1 meet already in kent that was a really great day out! Will have to organise something with you guys...and I think a turbo would be an AWFUL idea as I would end up with about 5MPG as i would want to hear the turbo all the time...

If people are available I could try to organise something for all of us this weekend (As in a 1 day thing Friday/Saturday/Sunday/Monday? There is another cruise up north this weekend but it would be a major trek to get up there, let alone then stay up there and cruise around.

Let me know what you think.

Ok I think all I can really do is research it a bit to see where we could go and good routes. I will post something on the check your diary either today/tomorrow.

Off to research!
