Review

Fun to drive, good on gas, good quality product. Only major problem is with the sealed gas tank system. After the dealer put 2 gas caps on it and looked at it several times the warranty ran out and then they said I had a leak in the gas tank filler neck. They could not repair it?? They said I had to buy a new tank for around 400. I purchased a code reset reader and I turn off the code every times it tells me I have a leak. I do this from 2 times a month to sometimes only once in 3 months. I called the home office of bmw and they did not want to help me with the problem. I should have insisted they fix it when the warranty was in. Other than that I enjoy the car.


Best Features

Looks, I don't like the new z4 square body.


Worst Features

Keep the price down so more people can own one.

Review

Overall I love driving this car. It is great for the Florida sunshine. The 2.3 model has plenty of power when you need it and the gas mileage is close to 35 mpg on the highway. The top is cheeply made and needs a glass window. I also have problems with the fuel sensor malfunctioning regularly. It is a blast to drive around town but use another car if you are going on a long trip.


Best Features

Gas Mileage. The big car feel.


Worst Features

Top need a glass window. More trunk space for the golf clubs.

Review

Z3's give a great modern
interpretation of a classic roadster.
We all know how they look so I’m not
going to talk about that. With 70,000
miles of New England driving I can say
I have had few problems. I bought my
2.3 from lease trade in. My dealer
replaced the front control arms after
I test drove the car. I noticed
nothing wrong in the test drive so I’m
not sure why they replaced them but I
guess I can just be happy they did.
The only other item was the air bag
light came on at about 55,000 miles
and to turn it off the seat belt
receptacle needed to be replace for
$400. The rest has been change oil and
filers and brakes just normal
maintenance


Best Features

The handling is superb. I drive hard at SCCA Stock class events and would never take a car to those limits on the road. The 2.5 you still get 6 sec 0-60’s and all the smiles of having a 50/50 balanced car with plenty of get up and go when you step on the gas at any speed.


Worst Features

We need good cup holders! No Climate control in these cars? All the other bimmers have it in the same year cars! Last a Leather arm rest on the door and the center consol. Everywhere you look there is leather but the spots you rest your elbows is plastic.

Review

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!


Best Features

Engine and seats. Stylish. Really FUN to drive.


Worst Features

Chassis. This car needs a better suspension. Gas economy isn't too good either.
