Very Fun Car
By MonteroFan on


1997 BMW Z3 1.9 2dr Convertible


Even with the smaller 1.9 litre engine
this car is an incredibly fun little
car. I don't mind the manual top at all
it takes 15 seconds to put it up or down
at the maximum and it's really easy to
do. The optional subwoofer is a must -
otherwise you just can't hear music with
the top down. My complaints are that
the seats move around a bit and one got
jammed after a small piece of plastic
got caught in the rail. BMW removed the
plastic, then told
me that I shouldn't move the seats
completely to the front, back, top, or
bottom as there are known problems with
them. Also, the center console
cupholder and storage feels cheap.
Other than that, I love this car.

Best Features

Fun to drive. Excellent on gas. Very reliable. Easy to manuever and park in big cities. Great BMW handling and driving feel.

Worst Features

Improve seats, so that you can move them around and so that they don't slide forward a bit when you come to a stop. Seatbelts lock up too frequently. Improve quality of center console.
