I drive a lot and tend to push cars to
the max. The z3 has held up amazingly
well. Other than some early "service
engine" light issues which required 10+
trips to the dealership in the first
3mo of ownership, I have no
complaints. The engine in this car is
a beautiful thing. For the price, you
cannot find more of a head-turner. I
don't recommend BMW's CPO program.
But seriously this is one of the most
fun to drive cars ever made. And talk
about taking turns! Watch out on tires
for this car as they run right around
200 a piece. Also, replace the crappy
sound system. It's worth it and makes
high speed trips with road noise all
the more enjoyable.
Engine, the way it takes curves, curb
appeal, riding low to the ground.
Friday afternoons in this car cruising
around with no particular destination.
Better sound system, better coverage
under CPO warranty
