Zed's gone but not forgotten...

The time has come... (no not Midnight oil lol!) to say goodbye to my marvelous Beast... I won't say too much as to why except that money has a large amount to do with it and the fact that I found a couple of other things that need fixing.
I got 12 great years out of it. Ate up some amazing roads and drove it like I was riding a Dragon!! All in the company of a great bunch of Blokes.
I'm not saying goodbye to the Zed scene(or the blokes) because in about 18 mnths give or take, I'll be buying a post 2007 350Z Convertible.
It's seems almost prohpetic that my Son bought me a Model Z for Christmas lol..almost a memorial. http://www.aus300zx.com/forum/showthread.php?t=336518
So what will I be driving at Zed Cruises(yes...at the back of the pack) ...a 2004 BMW M3 320i Sedan...which will become my Wife's when I am once again Zedding!!

Glad you'll be stick around mate, no shame in coming to cruises at the back of the pack. I had to attend a few in the hairdresser roadster when my Z was off the road.

Sorry to see you sell the Zed....

but when its time, its time But I'm confused Sean, is it an actual M3 or a 320i with an M sports pack? If its an actual M3, I'd be holding onto that little gem

...I don't know BMW's that well but it was shown as a 2004 320i not as an M3 so it must be a 320i with an M3 sports pack.
It has a nice exhaust tone and M3 1/4 panel badges, door sills, steering wheel, wheels and the carbon fibre wheel and hood / boot badges.
Handles on the road reaalllly nice. Nice firm suspension setup.
