In Reply to: 1996 Z3 - what to look for? posted by -phranc on January 16, 2000 at 15:33:26:
: I'm currently in the market for a 96 1.9 Z3 - I understand that this is perhaps not the most powerful Z3 ever produced, however, for my needs, this car should suffice nicely.
: What I'd like toe know is things I should look for when checking out used Z3's
: ..and as an afterthought, what upgrades should I consider making to this car after I purchase it?
: Anyhting else someone might find helpful.
: Thank you in advance,

: My 121,5000 miles on my 96, I can say the car is reliable other than air-bag lights that are possessed and unfixable (at least on my budget). Add a nice CD changer if it does not have one, some good wax to help promote bonding witht he car and a cover to keep the cat of it (you do have a cat, don't you!)
