Review of the 1999 BMW Z3

  • Pros

  • Cons

    Limited trunk space means that you will always travel light. Small gas tank means that you will stop frequently for fuel.

Most fun to drive I've ever had. This is my sixth BMW and makes me feel good every time I look at it or drive it.

Used to own a '97 2.3L Z3....this 2.8L is much better. The power behind this car is incredible, it's very fun to drive. The added roll bars provide better security. The seats are incredible: heated, holding capability, and comfort all rolled into one. Not very practical, but that's not its purpose. It's a very fun toy!

Your classic roadster

Vehicle: 1999 BMW Z3 2.8 2dr Convertible

loads of fun to drive, corners as if on rails, but can be a bit rough over road imperfections. has all the essential features of a classic roadster plus modern conveniences, automatic top operation, a/c etc. still draws the looks from everyone, works fine as an everyday car for most days (i don't take it out in the snow to avoid salty roads). you can even lock it with the top down due to its anti-theft device (location dependent of course) as all storage compartments can be locked independently. a perfect car for the young exec/professional seeking a significant other or for the empty nesters.

I'd say yes, but it's a tough call. 3 years ago I got a 1999 BMW Z3 Coupe for $16k with 12k miles on it. It's had some work to do from sitting around so long, but otherwise very pleased. Though I t...

I'm considering purchasing a used BMW Z3 (1997-1999). I test drove a 2.5L 1998 Z3 and liked the ride and handling very much. What kind of repair and maintenance costs is the Z3 known for? Are parts f...

In contrast, I never liked the Z3 and it never grew on me in terms of styling, driving or power....
