Loved this car!
August 18, 2018
I have owned many cars in my lifetime. Up until 1998 I would trade my car in every 2-3 yrs. I bought my Z3 off of showroom floor....while all of my cars were new when I purchased them, this is the only one I drove off of the showroom floor. It had 5 miles on the odometer. When I traded it in six years later, it had around 130,000 miles on it. And I absolutely LOVED every single moment and mile I drove of that car! The only thing I would have changed about the interior ( which since has been changed) was the placement of the cupholders. I was forever knocking into my drinks. I rated this car a 4 on reliability. While I had the car I had two "major" things happen....a radiator that exploded and a catalytic converter that went bad. Fortunately for me, both parts were under warranty, so I didn't have to pay anything out of pocket to have them repaired/replaced. It has been 14 years since I've had that vehicle, but every time I've gotten into a vehicle of mine since, hardly a day goes by that I don't think about it or miss it. BMW stopped making the Z models a couple of years ago. Currently I am in the market for a vehicle, because I need one, not because I want one. While I have the opportunity, I have every intention of purchasing my first, used, but also loved, Z4. And I can't wait! I can't wait to have that feeling of the handling of the vehicle in my hands again. I can't wait to have the reliability and drivability of that vehicle again. But, most of all, I cannot wait to have the feeling of driving down the road, my top down, with not a care (or at least not many) in the world feeling this BMW style left me with since I last drove it. You can't go wrong!
