Not quite a 'vette...
By Rich O'Connor on


1997 BMW Z3 2.8 2dr Convertible


...But the next best thing I could
afford to buy. Picked mine up at a
Porche owned used car dealership
complete with Dinan flow through
exhaust and modified thottle body
boosting HP to 215 or so from stock
195. Has a deep, throaty sound and
definitely can keep up with other
pocket rockets. The 17 inch
wheels/tires also help keep this pup on
rails. Loves to cruise right around 80-
85 and has a great rollover through 110-
115. I love driving this car ! Bright
white makes this a head turner too !

Best Features

2.8 engine is HUGE when compared to the lame 4 cyl version. Don't waste your time with the 4 banger. CD changer is also a must. 17 inch wheels and wider profile tires make this a complete package.

Worst Features

Better cupholders ! I keep knocking my coffee over...
