Fantastic looks and acceleration especially from 60 - 120mph, very confortable cruiser.
Traction in wet even with 18" tyres, DO NOT REMOVE TRACTION CONTROL!!
Bought my BMW Z3 2.8 sports car privately, had low mileage and 18" Breyton magic wheels, has turned out to be a very good buy (touch wood). the sound from the straight six is fantastic, the accelaration is almost untouchable from most sports cars of this price on the road today. I tavel from London to Carolisle and arrive as fresh as when I left, (As long as there is no long tail backs on the M6). This car definately brings a smile to your face every time you drive it.
Servicing costs from BMW are stupid, together with their per hour charge!
Fuel is very acceptable even when driving hard. feels very refined on motorway, almost better at high speeds. You do notice the noise from the hood but then you are driving a convertable!
Not a practical car for those looking to move anything bigger then a couple of overnight bags, does make the wife weep when she has to choose only her favourate 5 pairs of shoes for an overnight trip!
Touch wood again, this has been very reliable, Alarm has gone off a few times which is annoying, but that seems to have fixed itself.
I couldn't think of choosing another car, I spent 18 months finding the perfect car, I think I have found it! No other car provides this sort of entertainment, refinement and power!
