Except for chronically scrubbing the
front spoiler when parking, I've never
had a moment to question my decision to acquire
this car - considered the Boxster, but chose the
Z3. The 2.3 has great balance, exhilerating
performance and sounds great. My wife gets
looked at every time she drives it (which is why she
lets me keep it). Every bad day gets better when I
climb behind the wheel. It'll have 15k miles on it
this month (time for the first oil change) and,
although I hate to put this in writing, there has
never been a mechanical issue of any kind. Get in.
Sit down. Turn the key and off you go - solid as a
rock 'n quick.
Karma - just seeing it in my garage inspires a smile
Live rear axle is a little TOO true to the 50s/60s
sports car experience. Car gets skippy on uneven
road surfaces, squirrely in turns.
