Fun! Fun! Fun!

2002 BMW Z3 3.0i 2dr Roadster (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
I bought my Z-3 3.0 (sport package) a
couple of months ago and I love it. I
am a dyed-in-the-wool BMW owner with
this being the 7th that I've owned.
This car is fast, sporty, gets lots of
looks and positive comments and
blasting around on backroads and even
around town is a great deal of fun.
Ride is good, handling is solid and the
engine and transmission (manual) are an
absolute joy. It runs great and handles
very well indeed. If I had know it
would be this much fun I would have
bought one long ago. Just wish it was
cooler in Phoenix! I fit fine in it and
I'm 6'1" and 230 pounds.
Engine, transmission, styling, fun
factor, ease of lowering the top, fits
like a glove. Love the 17" wheel design
and wide tires.
The Harman-Kardon subwoofer rattles
even at moderate volumes - keep the
bass setting down. A six
speed would be absolutely super - fewer
revs on the Interstate.
