Hi just wanted to introduce myself, brought a 56 plate E86 3.0 in the summer and have finally got the suspension etc sorted and now use it as a daily. Love the car, first but not my last Z!

Wow, thanks all! Just passed 100k (brought at 97k) realised fairly quickly that i loved the car so decided to get it right.
I've just completed some of the suspension work (still got rear bushes, camber arms, rtabs etc to do along with the driveshaft joint, engine gearbox and different mounts)
Have done the full service, Air, oil and pollen filters, oil, spark plugs, shocks & springs (bilstein b6 and eibach) top mounts, drop links, bump stops, spring pads, control arms and bushes, track rods and bellows, replaced every bolt along the way!
Tranny and diff fluids to be changed next week, along with antifreeze.
New badges all round from stealers, and the stubby aerial along with the 19 CSL reps help in the looks department I think.
Plenty more planned for this year, including hopefully some paintwork and a detail to restore it.
I'm determined to get this car right and ready for another 100k.

Wow, you are really going for it - once you've finished that list your car should be transformed!

BTW I love your bi-colour seats. :thumbsup:

Is there a hint of blue there? Carbon black perhaps? Either way, looks great and at the rate you're going it will do you another 100k easy. Top work :thumbsup:
