$200 + 4-5 hours of DIY installation if you're even remotely handy with a soldering iron. A little nerve-wracking to take your new car apart, but still agreat way to "get to know it."

Many more useful features than the facotry alarm. Foremost is the radar proximity sensor. over the weekend, mine reminded two looky-loos that they shouldn't crowd too closely while trying to check out the cute little car.

wow, thanks to everyone that responded! It would seem that Bellevue BMW gets little or no votes. That actually works out good because I live in downtown Seattle.

Here's another question:

The last time I had a convertible, I lived in Georgia. I think I put the top up a few times, but I wouldn't swear on it.

As this Z3 will be my only car, I will drive it in the rain/sleet/snow/dark of night.

From you experience having lived with a convertible in Seattle, are there any options that really make life more pleasant?

As of now, I am not planning on the hard-top. I am so-so on the heated seats thing. The only options I am definitely getting is the remote entry/alarm thing, the chrome interior thing, and the Cd player. But if the heated seats are a must-have, I would get them (the car will be garaged at night).

Any thoughts on options that are must-haves for the Pacific NW?

Thanks for your time. Hopefully, I'll see you out on the road in a few months.


Heated seats should be close to a "must have" in Seattle IMHO. I live in Ca and don't see how I lived without them. Up there with sliced bread and microwaves. They warm you up nicely. They even helped when I hurt my back.

Get an aftermarket alarm not the BMW one. I have the BMW and I spent as much on upgrades for it that I could have gotten an aftermarket for the same price as my upgrades only. Some people an this board seem to like the UNGO one best. It seams to be 1/3 the cost and has more features. Maybe someone will respond that has one.
