1997 BMW Z3 1.9 2dr Convertible


Overall, even with the 1.9L engine, its
not a bad cruising car. Certainly
great gas mileage. Being a BMW, I
expected a better quality vehicle.
This car has less than 15k miles,
garage kept, never in rain or snow.
The seats rock, the power window
buttons fall in the console, gas gauge
is eractic and BMW dealers want to
charge excessive amounts to repair what
shouldn't break within 10k to 15k miles.

Best Features

British racing green, smooth style, decent handling and fun to drive.

Worst Features

BMW should have recalled car for seat issues. To pay $700 to fix a defect common to all Z3 is crazy. They also wanted $350 to replace the power window buttons. Unbelievable!!
