Fun in the sun.
I found this car with extremely low mileage, and it was in great condition. It hugs the ground, and the ride is smooth. As soon as the weather starts to warm, the top comes down and stays down for the summer. The stereo cranks out the tunes, and the engine hums along. It's simply a fun summer car. I don't know that it would be very practical if you have any sort of long winter or if it's very rainy. The roof is a little ratty in places, but you won't mind when the sun is on your face and the your zipping down the parkway.

BMW Z3: An Amazing Roadster
If you are looking for a roadster, then the BMW Z3 is hard to beat. We bought our first one and we liked it so much we have since purchased a second one so we could have "His" and "Hers" and are now are looking for a third since we would like an automatic one as well for those days you don't feel up to driving standard. The lines of this car are amazing, simple yet luxurious interior, sure it doesn't have all the bells and whistles that are in cars now but who cares, you are in a gorgeous European roadster. You will get stares, we have had people in brand new BMW X5s and similar nearly break their necks to get a better look. It gets decent gas mileage as well so you aren't sacrificing economy. The only cons are depending on where you live it might be more expensive to repair since it is European, and if you aren't proficient in driving stick, there aren't a lot of automatic Z3s out there, they exist but you are less likely to run into them. This also is a roadster that can accommodate people of all heights, my 6'3" boyfriend has no problems comfortably being in the Z3, top up or down. Our first Z3 we have driven through tons of high altitude, curvy, mountain roads and she handled them beautifully, as well as doing fantastic at over 200,000 original miles. Our second Z3 had an initial maiden voyage of over 500 miles to bring her home and she handled it no problem. So after these experiences I can easily call these cars reliable and well built.
