1998 BMW Z3 MReview

Overall:

I spent two years searching for a Z3 M manufactured from 1998-2002. I now own vehicle number 729 in the production sequence. Optional side airbags are included, an accessory meeting the up-to-date safety feature of newer vehicles. The imola red II /black interior is bold, yet an elegant compliment to the imola red exterior. I paid full price for a full value. The vehicle has appreciated ten percent since the original purchase. The Z3 M design from Joji Nagashima (1998-2002) includes bullet-style doors and flared rear fenders, the best lines of iconic XKE and 911 models The interior includes a mandatory gauge cluster and several one-touch buttons to activate key functions. This vehicle is a classic and is qualifying to become a collectible.

The z3m is one of the more connected cars you can experience as a driver. There are faster cars, for sure, but few that are as engaging to drive. It has a classic design that will continue to appreciate.

Overall:

A Real Enthusiastic Monster — I bought my first M roadster 2 years ago and have been in love with it since the day I took it home. Working in the business I have driven anything from an old Honda civic Si to new Porsche 911 Turbos and 750HP Corvettes. This car, for the money, is unmatched. I have never taken the car out without getting a compliment. The best part? No one really knows how old the car is. As a 1998 with this styling so ahead of its time I often hear people just guessing at what it is and what it can do. The interior styling with chrome bezels and plenty of power options leaves it feeling fresh and masculine. Truly one of the best cars I have had the pleasure of driving and certainly going to be adding a few more to the collection.

Pros: Power, handling, comfort, shifting, is there enough room in this box for all of the pros??

Cons: Uhm... can't fit a TV in the trunk?

Overall:

Bavarian 427 Cobra With A/c, Radio, And Heated Seats — The perfect example of a timeless sports car. Two seats, convertible, racing suspension, a monsterous engine and brakes. 25 mpg in mixed driving for a car that blasts through 60mph in a hair over 5 seconds. BMW is truly the Ultimate Driving Machine. If it's been tweaked by the Motorsports division it becomes staggering.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: BMW’s M Roadster is the classic 427 Shelby Cobra with a Bavarian accent. BMW's Motorsports division took a car originally designed for a 1.9L 4 cylinder and shoehorned in the performance version of the most beloved 6 cylinder engines in the auto industry. That glorious engine combined with a racing suspension and monster brakes resulted in the highest performance car BMW had built at the time, becoming what the UK’s Top Gear declared the best handling car in the business.

Seventeen years haven’t aged it much. The 240 horsepower and 240 foot pounds of torque still push the little rocket to 60mph in a tick over 5 seconds. The rush of acceleration comes with a throaty growl from its dual exhausts that drops jaws from those driving American V8s watching those same twin exhausts disappear down the road. The roadster still gets compliments for its timeless design, making women who see it want to spontaneously bear your child.

Cons: Backseat (trunk) somewhat small

Jackie says:
This one is 1 of only 356 made with metallic black and red top color combination. This car handles better on the open road than the Boxster and has much more power.

"I owned a 99 boxster and thought it was a fun car to drive. But the Z3M has more power than the Boxster and the Z3M also has a better suspension providing a much better driving experience."
