Most of you are aware that I recently sold my 97 1.9 so that I could order a 2000 MY 2.3. Now that the invoice pricing has been released I find myself reconsidering my position. If you review the pricing you will see…


Z3 2.3 Z3 2.8
Invoice Price $28,330 $33,370
Leather Upholstery 980 STD
On Board Computer 255 255
Heated Seats & Mirrors 425 425
HK Sound System 575 STD
CD Player (in lieu of cassette) 170 170
Sport Seats 340 340
Wood Trim 340 340
Fog Lights 220 STD
Cruise Control 405 STD
Destination & Handling 570 570
TOTAL DEALER INVOICE $32,610 $35,470

…that the difference of $2,860 in the total dealer invoice prices should end up being the total difference in selling price assuming the dealer isn't trying to move one model or the other due to some kind of inventory imbalance. Thus it gets down to the question of whether or not the 2.8 model is worth $2,860 more than the 2.3 model. Last year when the difference was $3,215 I would have purchased the 2.3. Now I am not so sure. What would you do?
