My first Z3 and mid-life crisis. Scoured both eBay and AutoTrader for weeks before going to look at this.
I knew I wanted a facelift with a 6 cylinder engine and I set myself a budget of £5k. Back in 2009 that didn't buy you a lot of Z3, so for that I got a fairly basic spec'd 2.0 6cyl. It was completely standard, and in reasonable condition. Dropped the roof on the test drive and couldn't stop smiling.
