The little Z3


1997 BMW Z3 1.9 2dr Convertible


Even though my Z3 has the "little"
engine it is a blast to drive. It is
very reliable and has a lot of get up
and go. It is fast, with the 0-60
around 7.7 seconds. Not the fastest
car out there, but faster than most.
The handling is amazing and it is very
easy and comfortable to drive. Get a
newer one with the roll hoops if you
want people to think it is new. The
hoops are the give away that it is a 96
or 97. There are many performance up
grades for this engine like a new
computer chip, high flow intake, high
flow exhaust, and even turbos. But if
you need this car to be faster, buy one
with the bigger engine.

Best Features

heated seats, leather interior, on- board computer. Most people think this is a very expensive car because it is a BMW convertible, but it is one of the best bargains out there.

Worst Features

The factory stereo is horrible. Plan on replacing it with a more powerful one. I think the newer Z3s look better with their fatter fenders, meaner front air dam, roll hoops, and more elaborate interiors.
