BMW Z3 M 3.2 Roadster Sports Car Review:
For those people who have never experienced the pleasure given by driving a BMW Motorsport engine you should definitely experience it. The 3200 cc engine coupled with twin Vanos offer meteoric acceleration all the way through to 155 mph. You will reach 100 mph in just over 11 seconds and 60 in just over 5 seconds. The car can be a little hairy when driving hard imto corners in the wet but this is true of all BMW's. I would strongly recommend the AC Schnitzer sports suspension to kerb this tendency for the M Roadster in particular. It would be money well spent. I was fortunate enough to buy a model with only 19500 miles from new with a full service history. You need to look out for Vanos related problems with these engines. Repairs are extortionate. The car offers a unique driving experience and the V6 engines are the models which best exemplify this. The car offers great value for money.
