Loved it and wish I still had it

Great car made by a great company. Loved the style and handling. Seats were marginal and if I still had them, I would replace them.

Unique and fun to drive

This car is such fun to drive! I feel like I'm in a tiny starship. The acceleration is there when you need it. I love the body lines of this funky little hatchback.

1999 BMW Z3

Pro Styling and handling are very good. Engine performance very good for 2.5 6 cylinder litre. Gas mileage is about 25 - 30 mpg. Con Engine crankcase ventilation valve, very difficult to replace, 3 hour job for mechanic, multiple hoses that degrade with age, costly repair. Poor design on seat bushings, which wear and cause forward and rearward motion, must remove seat to repair. Trunk mounted 3rd brake light, very prone to leak with age, suggest removing assembly and resealing with silicone. Glove box assembly suffers from lock catch sagging on my Z3 From my research, all Z3 speedometers read about 7% higher than actual speed. Convertible top seals harden and can leak water in around the windows. If you plan to do work yourself be sure to get a shop manual. Manuals are very limited and pricey. Search internet for formums and ask questions prior to purchase. Maintenance is a must to keep these cars performing well. Overall I am very satisfied with the car.

MOst reliable car I've owned

I've seen these cars with 2-3 hundred thousand miles on them and they continue to be very reliable. If you are looking for a great touring sports car that is reliable and fun to drive, look no futher than a BMW Z3 convertible. These cars can only grow in value as time goes on.
