Hi Old Codger,
In my mind there are only two reasons why BMW sold 542 2.8 Z3's in March.
First, they were sitting on the dealers' lots.
Second, they had a $1,500 dealer incentive on every one of them.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
: According to your sales report the 2.8 roadster has experienced the largest percentage gain of any of the Z3's. Could be dealers aare making better deals on 2.8's or buyers recognize that the 2.8 has other options that make it attractive such as 17" wheels. I am prejudice, but I would go for the 2.8
