actually, that price looks like sticker, but with the 1500 incentive, it's a pretty good deal. go for it. if you search the archives, you'll find that most people can't feel too awfully much difference between the 2.3 (a 2.5 litre) and the 2.8 except at high speed. i have the 2.3, and it runs like a bat out of hell - i love it. i drove the 2.8 as well, and it just didn't speak to me: ie. Alan, you must spend ~6,000 more for something you didn't feel on the butt dyno - no big whoop difference. others may disagree. it's getting close to the end of October. i'd make a move soon.

I was wondering if somebody would provide an opinion on a Z3 the local BMW dealer has for sale.

2000 Z3 2.3, 5-speed, white, black top, tanin red leather seats w/ black dash, and wood trim package (sounds gaudy but actually quite tasteful).

Has Premium Package w/ power top etc, chrome package, in-dash CD player (but no 6-pack in trunk).

He threw in the floor mats w/ the following numbers:

$31,500 car
$2,362.50 tax
$194 doc
$567.76 license

Grand total out the door $34,624.26

He has only two 2000s left. The other is red, and my opinion is that red attracts too much attention, so no go.

Anyway, apparently BMW has $1500 incentives on the 2000 that are left on the lot, until the end of Oct.

Is this as good a deal as I think it is (i.e., not a steal but as good as I'm gonna get?).

Also, I have driven the 1.9, 2.8 and M but never have driven the 2.3(2.5 engine). I would have driven one of these tonight, but it was raining. Will I notice a significant difference between the 2.3 and 2.8?? Or only at top speeds?

Thanks for listening . . . and thanks for your opinions.
