2001 BMW Z3 3.0i 2dr Roadster (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I've had the Z since 5/02 and have put 10K miles on it, driving in good weather only. It is drafty, noisy and uncomfortable. The sound system is boomy with the top up and muddy with it down. Buying a rear windscreen helped a lot. The M3 leather seats are too hot and too tight and it's hard to find a comfortable position. The plastic window is impossible to clean as are the premium wheels. It's hard to get in and out of. But... The paint quality is great; it really shines up. The torque is incredible; downshifts aren't required for highway passing. The 5 speed is smooth; the steering precise. The DSC helped me a few times. The car is just getting broken in. I'm gonna miss it.


Best Features

Powerful smooth engine; precise steering. Car looks great, drives great. Good maintenance plan too.


Worst Features

Glass window. Larger trunk- enough for golf clubs. Slightly more interior room, bigger seats with adjustments. Less drafty; less noisy.

Review

Had a 318i for 7 years- never a problem with repairs, etc. Only got rid of it because it had 100,000+ miles on it and was worried it might start breaking down. Bought the Z3 as a preowned vehicle - with warranty. Have had it in shop countless times, last time being it needed a new radiator - have had lots of repair issues, it is now just out of warranty and I am hoping it will not break down any more. Love the car, it's cute and fun but disappointed in repairs so far. Other BMWs superior to this one :(


Best Features

Review

I bought the 3.0 on 02.2004 and since
then, I can say that is so fun to drive.
Everyone loves it!!!I installed the BMW
Harman Kardon Traffic Pro GPS system
The Z3 is a real classic.


Best Features

17 inch tires, the power is awesome!


Worst Features

Bumpy ride, and the small trunk. But the car is so fun to drive that those are minor flaws.

Review

I purchased a "certified preowned" Z3
with 100K extended warrenty. Although
I paid more, the peace of mind with the
extended warrentey provided peace of
mind. the car is fun to drive and plan
to keep it a long time. I am very
satisfied with my purchase.


Best Features

I love the body style, the seat comfort, and handling, leather interior and sound system


Worst Features

need built in garage door opener
