: I am also a brand new Z3 owner and have been snooping around this message board since a fellow owner told me about it a few weeks ago. I just picked up my beautiful brand new 1999 2.3 Z3 from the dealer today!!!! What a rush!! Atlanta blue/beige/beige, On board computer, cruise, leather heated sport seats, CD changer, fog lights, etc. I LOVE THIS CAR!!! I live in Columbus, Ohio, and there just aren't that many of them around here. People just stare... It puts a smile on your face just to slip into the driver's seat. I ordered it about 6 weeks ago and haven't thought of much else since. The anticipation was worth every minute. This is FUN!! I also wanted to thank everyone on this message board for all the wonderful info. There is a wealth of it here. My magnetic stone guards also arrived today (what timing!) Thanks, Keith!
: It's nice to be part of this message board - it's even better when you can go out and drive the car!
: Thanks everyone!
: And for those of you who have asked about the 2.3 - it is far better than the 1.9 and not far off the 2.8. I'm extrememly pleased with my decision for the 2.3 - a 2.8 would have been about $5000 to $6000 more, and this is plenty of car for me for now.
Sounds like you made a wise choice. I think the
new 2.3 is going to be a great car for BMW. I
congratulate you on your new "baby." I got my
98 2.8 in Feb. with a similar wait of 6 weeks. I
could hardly wait for it to arrive. Haven't had
one reason to regret the purchase. Happy
motoring to you from Bloomington, IN neighbor.
