Strange guy .. I made a comment on one his many posts on one of the Facebook groups saying he should be declaring he was a trader as he was by his own admission buying and selling for profit

It resulted in threatening messenger messages from him, which I eventually had to report

Well I took a look at it.. And maybe it wasnt his.. or the last owner has restocked the missing bits.. :) as it still had the wind break, warning triangle, and first aid kit and floor mats! Underneath the hard top, was a tan soft top, not my ideal colour, but it kept the lightness of the car. I guess I will get used to it. I dont think the hood motor had been moved, but worked well enough.
The car appeared to be well looked after, and had been cleaned sine my last unanounced visit and sounded and performed amazing.
I am thinking of putting an offer in... If accepted, I think I will be shelling out a bit more on petrol, but hope that it will be worth it.. Watch this space..

Well it sounds like a good example, and a hard-top is a bonus. :thumbsup:

It isn't difficult to get over 30 mpg out of a 3.0 so they aren't exactly uneconomical.

If you go for it don't forget the photos! :)

I spent a long time looking for Z4s before purchasing mine and that looks like a very good deal to me,
so long as it has no hidden problems. Maybe get a mechanic to do a full inspection?

If you are serious about selling your Z3 here, then stick a sales ad in the forum's 'Market Place' :wink:

Thanks, I will. Just going to sort out a few things.. It may take a while, I can't bear to part with it.. That may change once I have the 4.
