The BMW Z3 is again available as a coupe or roadster. The roadster is available with either a 2.5L six-cylinder engine or the newly enlarged 3.0L six-cylinder engine. The coupe, however, is only available with the 3.0L engine. Along with the enlarged displacement comes an extra 32 horsepower and seven foot-pounds of torque. Also standard with the 3.0L are larger brakes,17-inch alloy wheels, and high performance tires. The M Coupe and Roadster offer the highest performance available within the Z3 line. Both M models are powered by a 3.2L, 240-hp in-line six. Additional performance upgrades on the M include dual chrome exhaust, sport-calibrated suspension, and four-wheel ventilated disc brakes.

Take a drive on the wild side (or not): 2.5 vs. 3.0
Pros: Fun, fun, fun; great engines, entertaining chassis
Cons: Far more expensive than a Miata; 3.0 may be a bit much for some
Build quality could be better, but very fun to drive. Read More at Epinions.com

The S54 M Roadster...the pinnacle of the Z3 line
Pros: Scary fast, aggressive styling, gearbox, massive engine and brakes.
Cons: Squirrelly rear suspension, people gawking, plastic rear window.
As the final evolution of the Z3, the S54-powered M Roadster fulfills its destiny with aplomb. It outhandles and accelerates cars twice its price. Read More at Epinions.com

My mid life crisis on wheels
Pros: The 0-60 times are astounding, yet controlled. Dialed-in handling, cool car all around
Cons: $$$$$, May be to small for average size or larger drivers.
If you are between a Boxster S, a Corvette and an M this is a car that is worth a look a drive and some serious thought. Read More at Epinions.com

The look grabbed me and the ride sold me!!
Pros: You will feel the road in a refined way. Handeling is precise.
Cons: Bad blind spot with the top up. Also, plastic window.
Cheaper since out of production. Invest in a window pad/cover and a good car cover. Check out z3solutions for great products as they do work as advertised Read More at Epinions.com
