: : Geez...must be nice to be driving a Z at 17! The first car I ever drove at 16 was my old man's crapped-out Ford Tempo. You must have promised your first born just to get insurance!
: : At 24, I got my '98 Z3 2.8 (alpine white, black top, red leather interior, etc.) with the money I had left over after my wedding. I figured that since we had decided not to have kids yet, I would at least have some fun before we did have them.
: : Well, we just found out on Sunday that a baby is on the way...now, I've got to think "FAMILY". Maybe I'll get a 540 or swap with my dad...he got himself a '99 528i!
: : : Hey Everyone looks like my final days of Z3 Searching as coming to a close. I think I am going to get a '00 Z3 2.8. It is Silver, black top, with the extended tanin red , here is a pic of the interior.

: : : The options I would get are
: : : In Dash CD Player
: : : Chrome Trim
: : : Sport Seats
: : : and it comes with Cruise Control, HK Sound system, fog lights etc..
: : : There would not be a huge difference in getting a 2.3 except a little money, and I couldn't get that interior I want, and would have to add some options that come with the 2.8. What does everyone think of that interior Extended Tanin Red? It would take about 6 weeks for the dealer to get it, and right about then I would be turning 17.
: : : Tell mw what you think.
: : : Sincerely,
