Relearn the definition of "recreational driving" by Jim In RI on 07/31/2006. Trim: 1999 BMW Z3 2.3 Roadster, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The color. Silver ext with red on black interior. No woodgrain. Smooth clutch, close gate for shifting aids in acceleration. More refined than a corvette or camaro. Roll bars and ragtop boot makes her look really sleek. Timeless design. Looks better than any Z4 on the road. I cant park somewhere without getting a compliment. Plenty of rubbernecking. 2.5L engine still has enough get up and go to get the heart pounding, but doesnt really make me smile til just before redline.
Cons: No cupholders. Top will leak in heavy rain. This is common whether you own a 1996 1.9 or a 2001 m roadster. Quick and cheap solution, go to the nearest dicks or sports authority and buy yourself a tube of bowstring wax. Apply it to where the leak is. Be neat because it will get on the windows and smear when you up and down them, but a fair trade off to a saturated leather seat with power equip and sensors in it. Also, I live in RI, so she'll be stored (and missed) from NOV-MAY. 2.3 is a bit underpowered for my tastes. I may end up adding a supercharger. But I couldnt turn mine down when I saw it. Mint Condition, 50,000 miles, $17000. Cant beat it with a stick
Overall review: If you can afford a 3rd toy car, by all means purchase one. Inline six will last forever. Bmw quality for a fair price. And owning your very own roadster!!!!
