Generations of motoring writers have made the BMW Z3 into one of the most maligned sports car ever made.
This is an experienced and honest appraisal of issues to be aware of when buying a BMW Z3 – the good and bad points, the fact and fiction, economics, practicality, and living with BMW’s small sports car.


This book releases one of the best-kept secrets of the sports car world – the BMW Z3, the latest generation of the traditional small sports car, with the advantages of being based on a tried and tested model range produced by a manufacturer of high quality cars with enviable service and spares support.
Designed in Bavaria, styled in California, and built in South Carolina, the Z3 caused generations of motoring writers to dismiss it as a toy sports car, fit only for ‘Estate agents, hairdressers and footballers wives,’ but is it really so bad?
As the Z3 becomes a modern classic, potential buyers have little information to help them sort out the best cars from the others, most Z3 books being a combination of history and data. This guide shows what to expect and what to look for, written against a background of prolonged ownership and Z3 knowledge.
Containing a wealth of Z3 information, practical inspection and driving evaluation hints, this book will help potential buyers through the process of finding the car they want, whether it is to be a summer runner or a car to keep and cherish.
