1997 BMW Z3 1.9 2dr Convertible

Review

This car is absolutely a joy to drive. It has almost zero body lean in high speed turns and the automated traction control keeps the tires sticking to the road. Its got that solid and sophisticated german road feel... like drinking a fine wine or smoking a good cigar. The sport seats are comfortable, and provide just enough room for me (6 feet tall). Being a 2.8 and weighing 2,600 pounds, its got alot of jump from the get go, and mine came with a custom exaust that puts me up to speed a little bit faster. The controls are pretty obvious and close to hand. While limited in cargo space, if you're shopping for a z3, that isnt the main concern. Awesome

Favorite Features

speed, power seats, convertable top, 6 speaker audio, sport seats

Suggested Improvements

More trunk space (by raising the lid so my suitcase would fit in), needed to have stock front side CD player rather than changer in back, and it runs through gas tanks quickly... either put in a bigger gas tank or make it more fuel efficient. otherwise, its pure joy
