Do you own a BMW Z3? Have you ever had to replace any parts? If so then we would like to hear about both these experiences and how the replacement parts faired. Write a review in the comments box at the bottom of the page.

BMW Z3 Overview

The BMW Z3 is classed as a roadster and is produced by the German manufacturers BMW. This was BMWs first modern roadster to be mass produced. It was first designed as a replacement for the Z1 and was eventually replaced in 2002 by the Z4. This car was available in both convertible and coupe versions. The Z3 is a 2-seater which looks great, is well built, good fun to drive and holds it value when selling it on. It is not as good at handling compared to rivals such as the Mazda MX-5, and lacks in performance but it looks amazing and has the BMW badge to go with it. Does this sound anything like your BMW Z3?

BMW Z3 History

Before the BMW Z3 was introduced in 1996 to the general public, it appeared in the James Bond movie ‘Golden Eye’ which helped boost sales with over 15,000 being sold before it was first released. It was based on the E36 design platform of the 3-series BMW and modified slightly for the roadster version and then again for the coupe version. The coupe version is very distinct and received mixed reviews in different countries. Originally it was only the 1.9L engine available but many other engines soon became available. In 2000 this engine range was updated and the Z3 ceased production in 2002 to be replaced with the Z4.
