After decades of driving Volvo estate cars I have purchased a 03 Z4 3.0 roadster, while I'm still able to climb in and out of one.

I tried to do some research but the whim got the better of me. However I do appear to have bought a reasonable example on 82k miles from the Bristol area.

I'm sure I'll be looking for answers around the forums in the coming months. I've already seen a couple of hartops of interest!

Thanks Stuart. I must admit the past few weeks have provided a very different perspective on the road!!

Hi and welcome.

Thanks for the pic - looks good!

If your Zed's going to sleep outside then I can understand the hard top quest. Mine is lucky enough to sleep in a garage most of the time, which means I get the roof down every weekend that it's not pi$$ing down.

Either way, enjoy. :driving:

Oh, and meant to mention I have had two Volvo estates. Both 850s - a 2.0l and a 2.5l - both great cars - fast, comfortable and great load carriers.

Welcome Flake!

I only bought e89 35i on 31 Oct so I’m a relative newbie too but I have been made to feel very welcome here. There are plenty of knowledgable people who are willing to offer their knowledge & help. It’s lighthearted enough to feel welcoming while still feeling technical enough to be useful.

Well done everyone :D
