New z3 owner. Over the moon with my new car.

Post by jessicafay28 » Tue 23 Apr, 2013 21:14

Hi everyone!

I'm a new member to the club and just bought my first z3 today, and I genuinly couldnt be any happier.

I bought it from another member of this site, his username is Bertroex and he and his lovely wife Maria could not have been a more pleasent, genuine and fair couple to buy from. They couldnt do enough for us and we were made so welcome when we went to view and pick up the car.

My z3's a 1.9 in Montreal blue and a real beauty. Im a fairly new driver so previously have only owned a ford ka ( for the cheap insurance) so you can imagine how much of a step up for me this is.

Anyway, hope to get to chat to some people for some z3 discussions.

Welcome! You've bought just at the right time too - a few warm, sunny days that will, I'm sure, have you grinning from ear to ear, cruising around with the top down. There is no better feeling!! (Though I do recommend top-down at night too - there's something a bit magical about it.)

Hi blade runner 919.

I thought I'd buy one before the summer so when (and if) it arrives I can really enjoy it but luckily we seem to be getring blessed with a bit of sunshine now too.

And im definitely going to try it ay night. I probably wouldnt have thought to do that but I bet its brilliant.

Thankyou :)

Hi Jess, welcome to zedding, you'll absolutely love it, lovely looking zed you have, loads of help here if you need it :D :drive nice to see another lady join us, we are a bit thin on the ground. Have a look at forthcoming events, would be great if you can join in on one of the meets/cruises and meet a few of us. Are you joining most of us at Silverstone end of July?

Hi Gill!

Youre the first lady I've spoken to on here. We are a bit outnumbered arent we? Maybe other women havent realised how amazing the zeds are yet haha. But the men have been so friendly since I've joined. I was just talking last night about attending a meet so I'll try and make Silverstone, that would be great.

Hiya, Men! some of them are real little rascals but you will soon find out who they are :D and on the odd occassion our handbags may be needed :D

As the comments above, a night drive with the top down is a great experience. Be very careful at what temperatures you put the top down as the rear screen may crack. If its really cold, you can if the cabin is warmed up first of course.
