1996 BMW Z3 1.9 2dr Convertible

Review

This was my dream car - or so I thought. Styling's beautiful, but BMW missed the boat on designing this car for longevity. The car has literally been falling apart since it was about a year old...roof leaks, pieces falling off the dash, the door handles pulling out of the door, seat belt locking, air bag light staying on for first 5 minutes after starting the car. And, of course, once the warranty was up, the worst starting happening...and it costs a fortune to fix!

Favorite Features

Exterior styling is beautiful...this is fun car to look at.

Suggested Improvements

Hopefully, BMW has learned a thing or two about building Z3's since 1996. Go with later models!
