I am the 3rd owner of a well-cared-for
1996 meridian blue (James Bond's car
from Golden Eyes) Z3. With 49,000
miles on it the only thing needed has
been routine maintenance. I avg.
30/mpg using premium fuel. While the 4
clyder engine could use more power, it
does well with the 5-speed manual
transmission. Definitely just a 2-
seater with room for one suitcase or
two travel bags. Drives and corners
superbly. Will replace it in a few
yrs. with another Z3 but with the 2.5L
motor. BMW dealer service is expensive
with an oil change costing $72.
