In Reply to: '96 or '97 1.9L Z3 purchasing help? posted by palo on June 08, 1999 at 15:32:39:

Hey Peter L.

I ended using yahoo & also browse online newspaper for major metropolitan areas (a majority of these newspapers are part of and peruses approximately 500 preowned Z3 ads coast to coast.

I ended up buying a:

1996 1.9 Z3
Auto Tranny
All options minus traction control
13,081 miles

in Los Angeles. Took 11 days off and drove through Arizona, New Mexico, yada yada on my way home to the Midwest. Was it worth it to buy the one way ticket and drive back 3000 miles? Ab-so-fuckin-lutely.

I came across the 96-97 1.9 with most options minus traction control in the price range from $22-24.9k.

The Net should give you the most exposure to preowned Z3's and if your not limited to geographical boundaries and can drive or ship the car back, you may save yourself some $$$.

Happy hunting, Peter L!
