...I drove the 2.3, 2.8, M and the 1.9 and I think they all have their place. It depends on the driver as well as the place they live.
If you life in Europe you would be happy if you could own a 1.9.... yes even the 1.9 is a very good car..it's not a racer...but driving top down on a country road is just great.
Don't make the 1.9 bad...even if I don't own a 1.9 I think all Z3's are nice and purpose and value is determined by the owner himself.
By the way, they even used to have a 1.8 in Europe...!!!!!
: To prove that many people on this board have inflated egos and closed eyes I am taking this survey. To me the order of best Z3 to worst is M--2.8/2.3---------1.9
: M is awesome
: 2.8/2.3 similar performance with enough get up and go to make it a true sports car
: 1.9 slow slow slow, not worthy of BMW badge
: this is not even an arguement
