64000 Miles - Rare Dunkeld Green
10 Stamp Service Record
Detailed Condition

The Z3 is simply a massive image statement and Bmw got it absolutely spot on did
they not? Many of us remember first seeing the car in the premiere of James Bond
Goldeneye some 23 years ago and it has lost none of its appeal and is far more
cultivated from any angle than its replacement namely the awkward Z4. Pictures
really do not do this example justice, the first person to either see this
vehicle or read this article will buy.

Service History - 10 Stamps - 64000 miles
First registered and pre delivery inspected by SMB BMW in Exeter on 01.03.99.
This is a very well serviced Roadster detailing no less than 10 individual
engine services covering just over 64k. A proper history.

My teenage so has been taking an intrest in modern classics and together we have
been carefully and patiently seeking out the best of them with condition and
originality being the key motivators. On a personal level I have been revisiting
my youth, having passed my driving test in 1992 I cut my teeth in the motor trade
buying and selling cars of this ilk when they were a matter of years old. For my
son its a great education and a great way for him to learn the trade from the
ground up. For me the Z3 has always been a really simple formula that works so
well when the climate turns more favorable, moving forward the appeal of these
early cars will only gain momentum. When I bought it I gave it a complete health
check, all fuel and brake lines were found to be good with many suspension parts
noted as having been replaced. In a sense I have been as personal with this BMW as
I am ever likely to be with any other, simply because I took an interest in the
model 20 years ago and its never really faded. It has been a joy to use, returning
me as much pleasure as vehicles that were ten and twenty times its value
and in reality more pound for pound, a genuine joy of a BMW.

- New radiator
- All brakes are good
- Fully tried and tested

The paintwork is great and will meet with most peoples expectations, the rare
Dunkeld Green solid paint retains a new look and has a depth of shine to it thanks
to time taken with detailing products and some practical know how. The model can
suffer from corrosion around the arches however this car has none of it, its as
tight as factory new. This roadster is not to be missed and you could spend double the
money and not get half the car. The low mileage is apparent in the condition of the
cabin and the engine bay which is immaculate. It has to my my mind the perfect
combination of colors, spec, engine and provenance that make it stand out head
& shoulders above the other cars on the market, which all look as if they are their
to make up the numbers by comparison. Its also keenly priced and will never depreciate.

The creamy throttle response and abundance of torque makes for an extremely light
well balanced high performance sports car, easy and light in traffic and to park
and will eat road at speed when required. One of the best Roadsters of all time,
heaps of fun and achieves this through its diversity and comfort as an everyday
sporting convertible. The paint is clearly factory original and its a totally
unmolested car that has not been changed or meddled with. Its beauty lies
in its simplicity, drop tops rarely come better than this, a true modern classic.
