1998 BMW Z3 1.9 2dr Convertible


Review

My wife had to have it. We imediately
replaced the loose seats with
aftermarket and it's been a joy. Tops
are easily fixed or replace and it's a
looker. Inexpensive fun and 30 mpg.
Exactly what we wanted. Pleasant
ride. Manual tops seem to work better
with these models. Give one a try.


Best Features

The transmission is a dream and a light clutch.(try a Boxster's)


Worst Features

Of course more bass out of the radio and seat rails that don't cost a fortune.

Review

This has been an amazing vehicle. I
have never had any drive train problems
and in fact it runs as well today as
when I bought it 6 years ago brand
new. I feel the styling of this car is
best of any roadster on the road! As
small as this car is the ride is
amazingly comfortable; the footprint is
wide and the car is heavy. It handles
like it is on rails!


Best Features

The styling and realiability. It looks cool and runs great!


Worst Features

The palastic back window should be glass, but the top is down as often as possible anyway!

Review

Have the 1.9 4 cyl. engine and has
plenty of power and oomph. Not as
fast as the 2.3 6 cyl. or the Audi TT
however this car is a "touring car"
first and not a sports car. Its looks
and handling make it a blast to drive
and quite an eye catcher. All in all
a great value. Top speed I am told is
around 130 mph however vehicle is
electronically limited to 115 mph. So
although some have complained about
the 4 cyl. engine it begs the question
do you really need any more for a
roadster??


Best Features

Syling and handling.


Worst Features

make larger cup holders. Louder stereo with sub perhaps.

Review

My Z3 was in the shop about 20 some odd
times. The problems ranged from
leaking softtop, blown thermostat,
busted sending unit, and so on. Fun to
drive, and I love the look of the car!


Best Features

The nose.
