Very Fun Car

1997 BMW Z3 1.9 2dr Convertible


Even with the smaller 1.9 litre engine this car is an incredibly fun little car. I don't mind the manual top at all it takes 15 seconds to put it up or down at the maximum and it's really easy to do. The optional subwoofer is a must - otherwise you just can't hear music with the top down. My complaints are that the seats move around a bit and one got jammed after a small piece of plastic got caught in the rail. BMW removed the plastic, then told me that I shouldn't move the seats completely to the front, back, top, or bottom as there are known problems with them. Also, the center console cupholder and storage feels cheap. Other than that, I love this car.

Best Features

Fun to drive. Excellent on gas. Very reliable. Easy to manuever and park in big cities. Great BMW handling and driving feel.

Worst Features

Improve seats, so that you can move them around and so that they don't slide forward a bit when you come to a stop. Seatbelts lock up too frequently. Improve quality of center console.
