Hello Peeps :D

The time has come to start a new projekt, ProjektZMC

I had my E36 HartgeProjekt for 5 years and decided it was time to move onto something else, I pretty much decided after the SantaPod 2009 show that it was time.

I was looking to sell the E36 and only then start looking for the new car, I was aiming for a low miles S54 version but the prices were up and down like a yo-yo and around £3-6k more compared to the S50 version.

After ALOT of convos and messages with my mate Ram he sent me a message that a car had turned up for sale and being a top chap he is he went to check it out for me.
After checking the car out Ram called me up and said mechanically the car was spot on, FBMWSH, even some of the MOTs were done at BMW. Paintwork wise there was the odd bumpers and scraps being from the heart of London. I wasn't really fussed about the bodywork as I was mainly looking for sorted and low miles engine. Generally speaking the car was spot on for what I was looking for.

The seller was holding out for an extra £500 I think it was, so I told Ram to leave my number with him and if he changes his mind give me a call. 20mins later he calls Ram saying Ad can have the car!

Flashforward -> 1 long ass week later -> Train booked To London -> Seller picks me up -> 2hrs driving around -> Now a Z3 MC Owner :cool:

congrasts!!!! sorry, I've been wondering this question for a long time. In european cars where driver side is on the right, is first gear furthest away from you (so its the same exact gearbox as in american left sided driver cars) or is first gear closest to you (so on the right so its reversed from the left sided driver cars). I hope that makes sense..
