Just becuase you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you.
Is this your first sports car? I have noticed that the narowness and lowness throw off other drivers' perspective. Because the car looks smaller, it is interpreted as being farther away. This doesn't happen with econoboxes because they are narrow but taller.
Just be glad it is 1998, not 1996 when every other yahoo on the road would just about drive up on the sidewalk to get a closer look at a Z3.
Have fun, and welcome to the family!
