1998 BMW Z3 1.9 2dr Convertible


Review

My wife had to have it. We imediately replaced the loose seats with aftermarket and it's been a joy. Tops are easily fixed or replace and it's a looker. Inexpensive fun and 30 mpg. Exactly what we wanted. Pleasant ride. Manual tops seem to work better with these models. Give one a try.


Favorite Features

The transmission is a dream and a light clutch.(try a Boxster's)


Suggested Improvements

Of course more bass out of the radio and seat rails that don't cost a fortune.

Review

This has been an amazing vehicle. I have never had any drive train problems and in fact it runs as well today as when I bought it 6 years ago brand new. I feel the styling of this car is best of any roadster on the road! As small as this car is the ride is amazingly comfortable; the footprint is wide and the car is heavy. It handles like it is on rails!


Favorite Features

The styling and realiability. It looks cool and runs great!


Suggested Improvements

The palastic back window should be glass, but the top is down as often as possible anyway!

Review

Have the 1.9 4 cyl. engine and has plenty of power and oomph. Not as fast as the 2.3 6 cyl. or the Audi TT however this car is a "touring car" first and not a sports car. Its looks and handling make it a blast to drive and quite an eye catcher. All in all a great value. Top speed I am told is around 130 mph however vehicle is electronically limited to 115 mph. So although some have complained about the 4 cyl. engine it begs the question do you really need any more for a roadster??


Favorite Features

Syling and handling.


Suggested Improvements

make larger cup holders. Louder stereo with sub perhaps.

Review

My Z3 was in the shop about 20 some odd times. The problems ranged from leaking softtop, blown thermostat, busted sending unit, and so on. Fun to drive, and I love the look of the car!


Favorite Features

The nose.
