"Really" The Ultimate Machine. by DocTman from New York City on 08/27/2012. Trim: 2001 BMW Z3 Roadster 3.0i, Owned 5 years.
Pros: 2001 was the year B.M.W. finally put the Z package together, after manufacturing the 1.9 liter 4 cyl, ( poor performance) The styling, performance of this 3.0 liter is still considered one of the top 10 cars ever built. It has a DSC system which reads the road, and adjust speed, suspension, and steering for the perfect handling that is needed for any special road conditions. Consumers are trading more current models in an attempt to get this marvel. If you turn off the DSC (which makes it a lady) The rear wheels will spin and take you 0-60 in 4.3 seconds. Top speed, i still do not know, she cruises elegantley at 130 mph. ( keep a radar detector available)
Cons: One design flaw is the cheap plastic rear window for this convertable roadster. It even lacks a defroster. Also the glove box lock is defective, with all the precision that was put into this beauty, it was hard to swallow these were overlooked.
Overall review: Every professional rating I have read have overall about the same review. An 11 yr. old car that today is still rated 9.3 is truly an amazing posession the expore any road. After 5 yrs. I still find myself repeating OMG when I'm on a competitive road.

A car with $42k sticker should not have these problems. by Carlos on 03/13/2006. Trim: 2001 BMW Z3 Roadster 3.0i, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Car is fast....and everyone likes teh apearance.
Cons: All the little plastic parts (seat belt holders, SRS emblem, etc.,) fall or break off. The leatehr wore poorly (seat belt rubbed color off).
Overall review: These are all minor cosmetic problems...but it just make one concerned that more significant prob;ems will occur over the long haul.

Exhilarating Z3 by RoarinRow on 08/23/2004. Trim: 2001 BMW Z3 Roadster 3.0i, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It is very exhilarating and fun to drive. I am normally a gadget/upgrade freak with my cars, but this is the first car I want to leave as is. I believe if I upgrade/replace anything such as the stereo, then I might miss the true pleasure of driving the car. The performance is outstanding and have very good value for the price compared to other luxury sports convertible cars in its class.
Cons: I need more storage space to keep stuff.
Overall review: Definitely The Ultimate Driving Machine.

one year later: still fun! by Tony from Orange County on 07/02/2002. Trim: 2001 BMW Z3 Roadster 2.5i, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Great looks, good performance very reliable. Handles great and corners even better. It's nimble and fun. Great top down for Southern Cal weather.
Cons: Some of interior finishing looks cheap (Cup holders, wood trim plates that don't match perfectly, plastic door handles)
Overall review: A good car fun to drive. Never get bored of it. Maybe a liittle bit more punch wouldn't hurt.
