Fantastic weekend for zeds but we only spotted one, and it had the roof up !
lots of mg's, boxters, mx5's and even 2 lambo convertibles .Have the zeds been put to bed for the winter?

I was in Lancashire around the Forest of Bowland for 2 weeks in September and didn't see a single Z3.
It is forecast to be a lot colder by the end of the week when we lose this warm air from the Med.

Out in the Z all weekend and saw LOADS of other Z3's, I even followed a lovely Y reg 3.0 in Topaz blue into work this morning. All in all I guess I must have passed at least 7 or 8 on Saturday and Sunday.

South West Wales seems to be the Z3 capital these days.

You tart - as long as it's not raining or snowing we'll have the roof down whenever the car's used. Heated seats and a decent heater are all you need.
Took ours for a 20 mile blast over to friends and have to say it would have been just as good with it being 15 degrees colder. The noise from a 6cyl with the rev counter doing a twirl is best enjoyed with no roof above you...... 8-)

Well mine has done thousands and thousands of miles and is definately not a rust bucket, and he will have probaly lived outside too in every bit of weather that could have been thrown at him - you need a little bit of faith in that little car, enjoy it, all year :D
