    Hi,

    Newbie from Galway, Ireland (Eire).

    I have had a '97 1.9L Z3 for a few years now and the old girl is starting to show her age. I have kept the engine & working bits, well... working and in top condition, but other parts of the car now need some attention and I hope to be able to pick some of the brains on this site, as well as offering what little help I can in return.

    I'll be honest, I'm not a petrol head as such, I just like the Z3 and really enjoy driving it, would love to get my hands on an M Roadster but the road tax alone would cost €1566 (£1382) per year, God only knows what the insurance would be so I'm thinking of repairing & upgrading my current car instead.

    Problems I've found include corrosion & damage on the soft top parts, alarm siren & wiring problems, back window surround leaking, paint work chipped & drivers door was keyed, door speaker covers corroding, antenna surround is knackered and the badge on my nose is chipped so expect to see questions on these problems popping up in the next few days.

    I won't even start on the upgrade wish list


    Regards,

    Frank.
