Track Day Bimmer

Average User Rating:
  • Loved the classic roadster styling, purchased the Z3 new in 1998. However, the track day bug bit hard, and the car has slowly transformed into quite a little beast. It now only travels by trailer from my garage to a variety of racing circuits (and the occasional mechanic's garage)
