was in front of a new Corvette hauling the school superindent. I drove the parade marshall and the oo's and ahh's were just too much!! Kids were screaming "Mommy, Mommy, it's a baby BMW" other words were cool car, classy bitchin wheels, sweet and tight and one older gal in sunglasses and cut-offs came by and said "give me a ride someday in this little sweetie" I passed out three of my bmw salesman's cards and i bet that one parade will sell at least one z3. I'm glad BMW has nice things to give away at Homecoming.....like technical associates doing work a dealer wont or can't do under warranty. It's a nice feeling, too, when you can tell people they're made in South Carolina in a small town. 70% hand made. People see this value and appreciate the good looks of a nice roadster. So, to all you z3 owners, volunteer your time and car for a local highschool event. You will have fun and the car just loves the attention!!!
