BMW Z3 2.8l Manual Roadster
This little beauty has been in our family since 2000. I bought it with 18K on it from a main dealer in Stockport. It has now done nearly 102 thousand genuine miles. I had it to use myself initially and then passed it to my wife a year later. We've spent a very moderate amount on it over the years - a new hood about 3 years ago and the usual pieces of hardware but the engine itself has never let us down. We're still on the original clutch!
This will be a nice little project for someone who has the time, skill and space to make her pretty again. The rust has only just started in the last couple of years and a few scrapes around her bodywork need sorting out and the lacquer is flaking on the rear bumper. Some kindly individual knocked off the drivers door mirror and broake the plastic moulding - it's now secured with silver duct tape but the electric still work and the glass is unbroken. The electric hood works like new. Electric windows a little sluggish but do work also.
The 2.8 engine in this little car means that it is totally unstressed all the time and you can dawdle around in 4th or 5th and still accelerate away without any snatching. On a run, you can get around 34/35mpg which is exceptional. MOT'd until March 2019.
My wife now needs a car a little more suited for taking the grandchildren out in, but I guarantee that she will be a little moist around the eyes when this collectable little sweetie goes!
