It's not an MG Midget
By argonaut on


2000 BMW Z3 2.3 2dr Convertible


My first car was a '76 MG Midget. It
wasn't fast, but it was 1800 lbs of
light, nimble pure fun. Like the MG,
it is small with a slightly
claustrophobic interior and the top
comes down. But, this is not a light
toy, and weighs in at a thousand
pounds heavier. It is reasonably
quick, very responsive and just plain
sexy. For a reasonably new car, it
has had way too many mechanical
problems, such as the heater fan
breaking, and the seals all needing to
be replaced so it would not leak.
That being said, the car is lots of
fun and well worth the money. This is
a very refined true cloth top
roadster. And its way cool to have
heated side view mirrors.

Best Features

Taking the top down while driving Pacific Coast Highway blasting Led Zeppelin

Worst Features

Get the bigger engine, move the button for the electric top from behind the seat to the dash, get rid of the cheap plastic parts, and improve the stereo.
