      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I recently had the pleasure of driving the BMW Z3 and was stunned at its capabilities. In my opinion, this car is almost perfect in every way. I enjoyed everything about the drive. The handling was perfect, it accelerated perfectly, and most importantly, it was a dream to drive. below is a short review of the aspects of the car. Engine: The engine is unbelievable. During my drive of the car, I was very surprised by its raw power. Both the M Roadster and the M Coupe come with a standard 3.2 liter, I6 with 240 hp. Considering the size of the car, this horsepower is unbelievable. From the minute I started the car I knew it was going to be a great car to drive. The engine immediately revved with enthusiasm. The M Roadster is quoted at 0-60 miles in 5.6 seconds, although it seems a lot faster when you are driving the car. The car does the half mile in a mere 38.4 seconds. The listed top speed is about 140 mph which should keep most courageous people happy on the motorways. Basically, the engine makes this car. I have driven other fast cars and they do not compare to the Z3. The car is a blast to drive because the engine is so powerful. At no time does the car hesitate when accelerating. You simply apply the gas, and the car takes off. Interior: The interior of the Z3 is what you would expect; it is small. Although this would be a negative for most cars, it is not for the Z3 because the size allows for better handling and acceleration. As mentioned above, the interior and size is to be expected. When you buy the Z3 you are buying the performance, not a car you are going to drive on vacation. With that said, the interior is your typical BMW style. All the controls are easy to read and situated properly. The five speed manual transmission comes standard on both the Roadster and Coupe. The heated leather seats are very comfortable and would remain comfortable even after a long trip. Because this is a sportscar, there i
      s of course no backseat. The stereo system is adequate although not the best. During my drive we had the top down and their was a bit of a problem hearing the stereo. One main nagative is the boot it is basically non-existant. Exterior: The exterior of the Z3is simply perfect. The lights are wrapped around the side and add to the looks. The rear tires are very wide which increase the amount of handling the car has. The crome rims add to the looks of the car. One aspect of the Z3 that I loved was the ability to put the top down. The Z3 is one of those cars that anybody would enjoy driving during the summertime with the top down. Handling: Like all BMWs, the Z3 handling is superb. There was barely any roll while corning and because the tires are wide, there was no screech to them at all. There were some parts of the test-drive where the road became very curvy and narrow. I was going slightly above the posted speed limit of 25 mph and there were no problems around the corners. It seemed as though the car actually accelerated around the corners which only added to the fun. Price Variable. As you can see by this review, I really enjoyed driving this car. There were no major negative aspects that I could find. If you are in the market for an open-top sports car, then do yourself a favor and test-drive the BMW Z3 I think you'll be pleasantly suprised.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        The BMW Z3 wow what a car I mean During it's launch in the market in 1996, the BWM Z3 did not need publicity and that the fact it had been James’s bond car certainly did not harm it's sale figures!!!! The Z3 is the result of what Mazda introduced in 1998 with its MX 5: wow a real pleasure to drive at the price of an average 4-door saloon. All the motive you need, with as much passion as possible. Presented during the Detroit Motor Show, the Z3 was a real innovation for the Bavarians from 2 points of view: it was the first play-car that BMW had mass-produced, thus at a price sustainable for the market, and it was also the first car in the history of the company entirely produced outside Germany. The Z3, in fact, first saw the light of day at Spartanburg, on east coast of the United States, a judicious choice for reasons of reduced production costs and the proximity of a very important market. This model can have 4 engines: two 115- and 140-hp four-cylinders, as well as two six-cylinders, one coming from the famous BMW 2.8-litre four-door saloons reaching 193 hp and the begging the famous 3.2-litre 321-hp M3. The Z3 is based on the chassis of the E36 three series model, with a reduced wheelbase of 25 cm with the axle with slanting triangles from the preceding E30 model. The suspension is independent on the four wheels and operates by torsion bars and oscillating arms in an L-shape at the front. TECHNICAL DATA: Dimensions and weight: Length 4.02 m; width 1.69 m; height 1.29 m; weight 1250 kg. Engine: Four-cylinder in-line; bore x stroke 85 x 83.5 mm; capacity 1895 cc; Max torque 180nm at 4300 rpm; power output 140 hp (103 kW) at 6000 rpm. Performance: Maximum speed 128 mph; acceleration (from 0 to 60 mph) 9.5 sec; kilometre from a standing start 30.6 sec.

        BMW Z3 roadster This is a car to dead for; it's the cream of the crop with the performance to go with it. It has new l-shaped taillights and chrome alloy wheels. The appearance is shocking really that this car is absolute elegant with an interior to match it. This car has a lot of features and new engine refinements have made a big improvement although he steering wheel could be reduced in size a bit. It has a maximum of 193bhp and a 2.8 litre engine for a lot of power and speed. It does 0-62 mph in 6.9 seconds with a maximum of 140-mph depending on the model of Z3 you have. The price ranges from £19,995 to £28,350, which is very reasonable for what you get.
