Amazing 2 Seat Convertible

1996 BMW Z3 1.9 2dr Convertible


I've had my Z for about a month now and have had nothing but pure joy. Styling is amazing. So sleek and smooth. No doubt it has aged perfectly and will continue to age much better than the the Z4. People will ask what year it it is and I tell them to guess. Their average guess is 2002 lol. Lots of people complain about performance, but luckily mine came with a supercharger made specifically for the 96' Z3 and boosted the power to 225hp. Yup that's right horsepower more than the 6 cylinder. Handling is perfect, you can go around a curve at 50 miles an hour when it suggests 35 with ease and comfort. All in all a great car that will age perfectly and last forever.

Best Features

Style, performance, handling, and being able to drop the top down at the red light.

Worst Features

One thing that I really wish the Z had was a 6th gear. Sounds like I'm dogging it on the highway, and a easier way to reset the oil change lamp. Other than that she's a dream car
