2001 BMW Z3

The 2001 BMW is "far more expensive than a Miata," according to user reviews, but at the same time the sports roadster is "fun, fun, fun" to drive. One reviewer went as far to call it the "pinnacle of the Z3 line" and noted that the car is "scary fast."

Complaints were few, although some called it "the ugliest BMW ever built" while still giving it high marks for its speed, handling and performance, with one reviewer going as far as saying "I'd cook it breakfast!"

The Z3 is a race car in disguise, so the cabin is tight - or "cramped," depending on who you ask - and the car may not offer as many luxury perks as some other BMW's.
