Here's an opportunity for luxury and precision that goes well
beyond the value price. This 1996 BMW Z3 offers a sporting chassis,
five-speed stick-shift, and plenty of modern luxury features that
you'd expect from a premium sports car built for two.
This is the first full model year that launched the now legendary
Z-line of roadsters. BMW created instant desire with the long hood,
short deck, and extra-wide fender flares that instantly convey a
car meant for driving. You can tell they spent time on the details
of this design with how well some of the pieces were integrated
right at the factory. Features like the ground effects, side
louvers, and third brake light are part of a premium look that was
instilled from day one. German luxury is best shown on a timeless
color like silver with a coordinating black folding top. This
example has been driven and enjoyed, but you'll also see a certain
level of better care than the average car. That's because this is a
two-owner example that were father and son.
A Z3 is meant to be open to the world, and so the black leather
interior gives this one an attractive color combo with the roof up
or down. This is a driver's machine, and so the bucket seats strike
that perfect balance between sports car contouring and grand
touring comfort. You get a ton of great features packed into this
BMW. It includes power windows, powers locks, cruise control, power
steering, dual front airbags, and a powerful AM/FM/cassette stereo.
BMW engineered the roof to stow away quickly and cleanly. Since
they are encouraging top-down motoring on a whim, you'll be happy
to have both cold-blowing air conditioning and heated seats. That
means you can stay open to enjoy the noon sunshine or even a crisp
Under the hood is the correct 1.9-liter engine. This fuel-injected
DOHC motor takes advantage of the great European tradition of lower
displacement motors that love to rev for the spirited performance
feeling. This is especially true on this five-speed manual
transmission example - a rare feature that really allows to take
full control into your hands. The fully-independent suspension
seems to have mastered the right blend of performance and comfort,
like a good BMW should. Powerful four-wheel disc brakes complete
this confidence-inspiring package.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and maintenance
records. Here's a premium roadster with a great family history and
an affordable price. This is a terrific recipe for open road
enjoyment, so don't miss out. Call now!
