Bye bye Z3; I'm gonna miss you.

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.
Favorite Features
Powerful smooth engine; precise steering. Car looks great, drives great. Good maintenance plan too.
Suggested Improvements
Glass window. Larger trunk- enough for golf clubs. Slightly more interior room, bigger seats with adjustments. Less drafty; less noisy.
