    Hi,

    My brother told me recently he would be looking at something for fun in the weekends.
    And he is thinking about a Z3....but my 2.8 with 193 bhp wouldn't do it.
    He wants to have the feeling of having "spare bhp".
    So went looking for a Z3M Roadster.
    IT MUST BE LHD.

    Has anyone seen this add?
    Maybe it has it been on there for a long time.

    Or anyone seen an other Z3M LHD for sale recently?

    Thanks for the info.

    mileage is a bit high...almost 157.000 km (100.000 miles)
    Or shouldn't that be a problem? I'm thinking at Vanos, etc.

    Koen, better a well run car than a garage queen in my book.

    Vanos can be problematic from day one they are s bit of a lottery in some respects, some last forever others not so really I wouldnt be too hung up on that aspect just make sure it has been cared for generally snd you will know if it is a good one or not.

    check for signs of rust bubbling in the paint near sills and such. make sure the spot welds in the boot area are nor rattled/rusted out either. run a hose over it to see if there are any leaks and check out all carpets for signs of past leaking. any usual tyre wear? etc....
