Greetings from Washington DC. Just picked up an extremely clean 1998, 2.8L Auto Z3 with 25k on the odometer. Love it so much that I sold my 2014 Audi TTS. Thanks for the add.

Yep, read that Frankie but I don't think that I am in a position to answer as I have a 1996 M44 1.9 16 Valve Automatic. Someone will be along soon with the info, I am sure.

Hi Scott and welcome from Lincoln UK. Mine is a 2.0 Auto but I won't be using till probably next Monday. If that's soon enough I will tell what it is doing. I'm assuming that is not in sport mode?

Hi,

Enjoy your ride!

The cars are good and even the older ones. I suspect you'll not be disappointed. Especially with the low miler you've got.

My 1998 2.8 manual reads 3000 r.p.m. as near as Dammit at 80 mph. I reckon with slippage from your autobox, 3200 is about right!

Cheers,
