Great Sports Car For The Money! — The Z3 is in the best tradition of the British sports cars of the 60, with the exception that everything about the Z3 is better than the earlier British cars, especially the electrical system and these cars can actually be driven in the rain and you stay dry.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great sports car.

Cons: cargo room

Sleek — Classic sports car. Fun, fast. Agile. Styling can't be beat. More than a car, a hobby. Purrs like a kitten. Never had so much fun washing and waxing. From the grill to the trunk, incredibly well-designed. Did I mention fun and fast?

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Cons: Nothing else compares.

Low, Long And Has Fast Top End. — I tested her speed and reached 145 MPH in about 22 seconds on a deserted hard road,handles great at high speed...hugs the road. Overall this is a great car and good on gas. Fun at the beach too.....drop the top and cruise.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling car, cruise control,traction control,all power windows,power seats,power mirrors,remote keyless entry with dual security/alarm systems,power locks,power steering, antilock power brakes.

Cons: Can't get more than two people in it.  It can't pull the boat. Insurance is kinda high priced.
Got to be careful with the rack and pinion power steering at high speed.

Beautiful Ride — This sporty Z3 Roadster features a five speed manual transmission with exceptional handling. It boasts 138 horsepower sending the car from zero to sixty in 8.3 seconds flat. This stylish Roadster is similar to the model featured in classic '96 James Bond film, GoldenEye. You won't find a pair of Stinger missiles concealed behind the headlights on this car, but you can enjoy quality features such as heated leather seats, power locks, windows and doors, and cruise control just to name a few. Without a doubt, the highlight of this car is the convertible top. Cruising around town with the top down will turn a simple trip to the grocery store into an glamorous adventure. This classic BMW convertible is a fantastic ride and earned itself a 9.3 out of 10 in Kelley Blue Book's Consumer Reviews.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent handling, Stylish, Convertible top

Cons: Small trunk,

Fast, Sexy Fun! — Handles the curves and has plenty of curves herself. Pure joy to drive. I haven't had any problems with this car. Puurrrrrsss like a kitten. I was worried about the soft top holding up but it has faired very well.

Pros: FUN!

Cons: None

I Enjoy It As A Weekend Car — The ladies DO love this model! Handles just like a roadster should and seems pretty durable, with good mileage. Quirky at times; buy a code scanner. Noisy with roof down; buy a windscreen. Roof replacement = $800.+ Good quality, fun to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun to drive Florida car

Cons: quirky

My Z3 — Z3's are a fun car to drive, especially with the top down. Definately not a family car. Great to drive and cheap on fuel, but repairs can be expensive. I'm very happy with mine, would recommend to anyone without kids.

Pros: cute, sporty and fun to drive

Cons: only a two seater with a smallish boot. Repairs can be expensive
