I read an article a couple of months ago in Road & Track that the Z3 wasn't as good as Honda's S2000. How could that be??? The Z3 has more torque, same HP, more cylinders, not to mention much better looks (an instant classic if you ask me). Road & Track says its mainly the handleing. How do other Z3 owners feel about that article? Also, does anyone know what it would take (equipment and cost) to bring the Z3 up to par to the S2000? Thanks.


Trust me, it's all talk. Turns out, two weeks ago one of them wanted to race my 3.0 off the line at the last light exiting a small town on U 74. In first gear alone I took over two car lengths from the poor thing, nver to be heard from again. The real kicker was how that 4-cylinder engine screamed! I mean, the guy was behind me and could hear his exhaust over mine. Screamed just like a Honda Motorcycle, however, obviously all noise. Just look at the specs of the S2000. Four cylinders, max HP output at an RPM where the Z3 engine shuts down, no torque, hell, it may look good to auto journalists writing for rags financed primarily by Japanese auto ads. Reality is something completely different.
