ABOUT THE BOOK
This Essential Buyer’s Guide leads you through the process of buying an Alfasud, from whether this is the right car for you, what it’s like to live with and what it will cost you to run, to which version and engine is best for you and what you should be paying for it.
Having helped you decide these factors, this guide then takes you through the buying process. It explains what equipment you’ll need when you go to view a car and shows you how to quickly determine whether to look at a particular car in more detail or to just simply walk away.

A comprehensive and thorough evaluation section, with a points scoring system, lets you fully assess a prospective purchase and detailed illustrations show exactly what to look for. With advice on paperwork, buying at auctions and thorough and clear advice on restoration, every aspect of sourcing your car is covered.

Having led you to your perfect car, the Guide goes yet further to give you all the contact information you'll ever need to get involved with the Alfasud-owning community allowing you to make the most of your new pride and joy!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Colin Metcalfe is the Yorkshire Section Secretary of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club UK and runs the Alfasud Register for the Club, a post he has held since 2004. His fervour and sheer passion for the iconic little Alfasud remains the same now as when he bought a South African-built Export model as his first car as a teenager. He's owned and cherished a dozen or so saloons and Sprints ever since. During this time, he's made and met many like-minded friends and enthusiasts from all over the world and has become known as something of an authority on the model. He prefers not to imagine what the world would be like without an Alfasud (or two) in his life.

BMW Z3 Roadster – All models (except M Roadster) 1995 to 2002

Stacks Image 4188
ABOUT THE BOOK
This book releases one of the best-kept secrets of the sports car world – the BMW Z3, the latest generation of the traditional small sports car, with the advantages of being based on a tried and tested model range produced by a manufacturer of high quality cars with enviable service and spares support.
Designed in Bavaria, styled in California, and built in South Carolina, the Z3 caused generations of motoring writers to dismiss it as a toy sports car, fit only for ‘Estate agents, hairdressers and footballers wives,’ but is it really so bad?

As the Z3 becomes a modern classic, potential buyers have little information to help them sort out the best cars from the others, most Z3 books being a combination of history and data. This guide shows what to expect and what to look for, written against a background of prolonged ownership and Z3 knowledge.

Containing a wealth of Z3 information, practical inspection and driving evaluation hints, this book will help potential buyers through the process of finding the car they want, whether it is to be a summer runner or a car to keep and cherish.
