1998 BMW Z3 2.8 2dr Convertible


I just bought this car in 10/03 and I
absolutely love it! For a 98, it looks
and handles great! I test drove it on
the west side of Cincy on curvy SR
roads and it was an instant sale. The
only problem I had was replacing
several seals on my convertible
top/front windshield, but I guess that
should be expected with a 6 yr old
convertible. I had to drop $2000 the
first month I owned it and now another
$500 for a carb sensor, fan or
something. I knew the maintenance
would be expensive, but that hurt a
little. Even with these costs, I still
love the car (as long as another $2K
bill doesn't come up within a yr)

Best Features

#1 Handling and speed!

Worst Features

It feels like the low end gears don't have much pickup. I would think a straight 6 could produce a little more HP/tourque with the 1st gear.
