WOW What a Car
By mgambuzza on
1997 BMW Z3 1.9 2dr Convertible
Truly my favorite sports car!!
I have owned many including Corvettes, Trans Ams, Z28s, Mustangs, and MG Midgets, but this one takes the cake.
Although I still own a 1970 Corvette (rarely driven these days), I still lust for the fun per mile that my Z3 delivered.
My wife and I were looking for a sports car for my fortieth birthday back in 2005 and stumbled onto this Atlanta Blue 2.8 5 speed with tan interior.
One test drive and the rest is history!
The performance, economy, power, looks, and driving pleasure makes this my most fun since my old MGs (when they were running properly).
I owned this car for five flawless years and drove the he'll out of it.
Great styling, fuel economy when driven sensibly, low frequency of repairs, simple non powered drop top.
Improved stereo and air conditioning.
My wife has a 2000 SLK230 and both of these items work exceptionally well- BMW could take a lesson from MB on these two options.
