I love it, but.....
By Kimberley on


1998 BMW Z3 1.9 2dr Convertible


I bought this car, because of it's looks and the price was fantastic!!! I love this car but, let me prequalify, my issues should be more with the previous owner than the manufacturer. The side window gaskets leak something terrible! So much so that the driver's side floor board is soft and spongy. The person that had changed their oil had left the small oil filter gasket in the filter housing on several occasions which resulted in the rings wearing out with time and crumbling into small bits all through the system and developing in a nasty oil leak and cost over $600.00 to fix. The hoses pop off for no apparent reason but, these do not detract from this beautiful car, in my opinion.

Best Features

The beautiful exterior of this car. It's a BMW.

Worst Features

Better window gaskets, replace plastic back window with glass. The cup holders are useless with their size and location. Plastic head light lenses yellow and dull with time. Doors tend to stick quite often. Window motors need to be replaced in time, could be from water because, of the leaking gasket
