I am looking at buying a BMW Z3 3.0cyl. The automatic seat motors need to be fixed. Is this an expensive task?

Asked by Jul 27, 2013 at 02:12 PM about the 2001 BMW Z3 3.0i Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It needs a new convertible top and the motors in the automatic seats need replacing.
Cost for doing that?

1 Answer


Are you sure it's the motors that are bad. If it needs a new top, the top is probably leaking. Something may be getting wet and blew a fuse. Be careful here. Cars with electrical problems can quickly turn into a nightmare. Especially a BMW. Personally I'd look for another one with no electrical issues. HTH. -Jim
