If you wait another 10 years, the new Z3 will pull over 1 g on the skidpad, go 0-60 in about 4 seconds, and have a standard GPS/drive by wire system...
I really get upset when things get better in life and technology and science has improved the lifespan of a human from about 40 to over 70 years, and that I have 125+ digital tv channels rather than fuzzy black/white single channel and that cable modems are making 56k modems obsolete.
I wish that I could take the z3 back to the 70's or 60's or furter back...a 1.9 4 cyl would be faster and more agile that many of the 6 or even 8 cylinder sports cars of the day....
Enjoy this car! I love the 1.9, and my next z is the M roadster- with whatever hp it will have in 1999!
: That for the MY 2000 the 2.3 will get a hp increase to 190 and the 2.8 to 220. Who knows if this is true or not. I will be extremely pist to have purchased a 99 and then BMW goes and ups the horsepower on the 2000 models. Any thoughts from MB?
