1999 BMW Z3 2.3 2dr Convertible

Review

My '99 Z3 (bought Feb '08, 48K miles) still looks great on the outside and powertrain has held up well. Surprised that interior plastic parts are so chintzy, such as loose power drivers seat, cup holder cover, and cracked/broken seat belt restraint and parking brake handle. Radiator fan shroud also cracked and broke off. 6-CD changer in trunk has poor tolerance for bumps. Would not have expected all these issues at 49K miles.

Best Features

Excellent handling, fun to drive, surprising get-up power with 2.3L (manual 5-speed). The whole look is still great, better than the Z4, I believe.

Worst Features

This model has vinyl seats (vinyl?!) and no cruise control, and of course a plastic rear window that one can take the softest known material found on this earth and still scratch it.
