1997 BMW Z3 1.9 2dr Convertible

Review

Even though my Z3 has the "little" engine it is a blast to drive. It is very reliable and has a lot of get up and go. It is fast, with the 0-60 around 7.7 seconds. Not the fastest car out there, but faster than most. The handling is amazing and it is very easy and comfortable to drive. Get a newer one with the roll hoops if you want people to think it is new. The hoops are the give away that it is a 96 or 97. There are many performance up grades for this engine like a new computer chip, high flow intake, high flow exhaust, and even turbos. But if you need this car to be faster, buy one with the bigger engine.

Best Features

heated seats, leather interior, on- board computer. Most people think this is a very expensive car because it is a BMW convertible, but it is one of the best bargains out there.

Worst Features

The factory stereo is horrible. Plan on replacing it with a more powerful one. I think the newer Z3s look better with their fatter fenders, meaner front air dam, roll hoops, and more elaborate interiors.
