    I'm looking at getting a Z3 Coupe when I pay off my current car (18 months :rant2:) and I'm currently checking them out. I've seen the older 2.8l for around 18-20k and I figure by the time I'm ready to buy I can pick up a nice one for around 16-17k but I'll have to deal with a higher milage car.

    Does anyone know anything about these? Common problems? Boards/Links dedicated to this model?

    :x:

    My dad has a 1999 2.8. So far, no major problems. There was a recall a while back to replace heater hoses, but that's the only mechanical problem he's had on it. Treat it well, and it'll be very forgiving.

    I can't think of too many bad things about the car, really. Well, the windows don't go all the way down into the doors, so there's a ridge of glass that sticks up and hurts your arm if you're like me and lean your elbow out the window. . . That and replacing foglight bulbs requires removal of the bumper skin (at least that's wheat the dealer told us. . . ) Other than that :bigthumb:
