Five Years and Counting. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 01/02/2004. Trim: 1999 BMW Z3 2.8 Roadster, Owned 5 years.
Pros: The car handles very well, even in the winter. I have found the car is very well balanced (front and back), which improves handling. The styling is very distinctive and is a woman magnet. Adding Dinan chip to improve performance was well worth the $400, noticeable change in performance. Gas mileage not bad considering type of car 24 mpg. Like hardtop for winter. GPS has been a good feature.
Cons: The trunk can barely hold carry on bag size suit case. GPS disk player does also reduce trunk space. GPS uses a CD, not DVD, so only part of USA is covered. No bumper trim on sides, no protection from door dents. Dealer service not as good as my Toyota was. Never can fix things the first time, always never having part. Problems have been minor so far.
Overall review: Like the car and would like to keep it for 10 years. Have to watch reliability moving forward. Likely to buy Z4 in future.
