We've just acquired an early '96 Z3 with 42000 miles on the clock. It seems to have spent most of its life in the garage of someone's beach home, being driven a couple of times a year during visits. Much of the rubber is dry, so the first orders of business were a nice set of suspension bushings, new tires (tyres) and liberal dousings of Gummi Pflege. Next up, a full exchange with new fluids and probably new hoses and belts. We purchased the car as an extra runabout for my wife and son; somehow, the teenager seems to drive it most of the time. At least he's one of the few teens in the US who can drive a manual transmission! I hope I don't have to come here too often for advise; having previously owned an E38, I should be terrified of BMW reliability at this point but am hoping all the Z3s I see with 100K-200K, I'm cautiously optimistic. One thing I'd like to find immediately - a set of owners manuals.
