Waved a sad farewell to the cabby last night

Bought by a decent bloke though so that is one good thing

I'm too old for any more e30's so looks like I will be saying farewell to the forum

Met some decent people on here ( and a few real coonts too :P ) and got loads of advice

Good luck to the Zone for the future

all the best

Please hang around the Zone, even if you are without an E30. We have large quantities of miserable young b'stards on here, so it's good to have the view of a proper miserable old b'stard. Best wishes to you whatever your choice may be.

No no no NEVER too old ! thats like saying too old to drive !
Chap I bought my i s from was 73, who had had the car from new - 23 years he had it, his wife who was of similar age and was the main driver for the last 10 years or so, only reason they sold it was because she had a bad fall and broke her left ankle (over a year ago) and cant really use the clutch properly, so now wants an auto, he has an E class estate.
So - theres NO age restictions :D
