She is my first BRAND NEW CAR, no leasing here thank you very much, and my first BMW. Granted she might not be a "high performance car", but she is my "high performance car". =: )
I love how she drives and just feels just right in my hands...she is always willing to take as much as I can give her with no complaints. She is always there when I need her on emergency situations (like when a car deceides to pull out in front of you - ARUGH!!). Even after those unfortunate happenings, she always come out smelling like roses or what ever scent you like....hahaha
I love auto-x'ing her, she has never disappointed me on the track. I am consistantly within 2-seconds off the lead cars (911, Mr2 turbos, Rx-7, etc- all running track tires) and only using street tires. It shows how a great car and OK driver can do at the track.
I always am looking for ways to make her stand out from the other Z3s (like everyone else does), from looks to performance upgrades.
One sad thing for the future for her is that I am torn between keeping her or trading her in for the new MZ3 (when the MZ3 comes out shortly after the new body style intro). I hope I will be able to keep them both.
But, until that day comes, I LOVE MY CAR!!!!!!!!
