2001 BMW Z3 3.0i 2dr Roadster (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


BMW's low profile, snearing, snarling front end is what attracted me to the Z3 model. With it's flared wheelwells, shark-gill slits and flattend eyebrow headlamps it just speaks motion. After two Corvettes (a 1970, and a 1980), the Z3 had to perform to keep my interest. WOW! Does it perform. With the 3.0 liter engine and AUTOstick tranny, full power burnouts are the norm with the DSC in the off position. The in-line SIX is both smooth and linear, it pulls right from idle and revs quickly. This car is by far the most FUN I've ever had out on the road. And, it turns heads where ever I go with it. Probably the best bang for the buck in sportscar driving! Try on a Z3 for yourself.

Best Features

Aggressive stance. A real drivers car. Firm ride with excellent roll control. Smooth, steady power delivery. Excellent build features with good old German quality and no compromise performance parameters.

Worst Features

Small trunk, but hey, it's a drop-top sportscar. Some road noise with the top-up. No problem, just leave it down and enjoy the breeze !
