1999 BMW Z-3 ROADSTER. #4USCH9330XLF82252. (Stock #4302.) BMW introduced its first sports car in many years in 1995, the Z-3. In roadster or coupe form, the Z-3 was a very well-designed, well-balanced sports car, which was bound to put a smile on the face of the driver. For the first two years of production, the Z-3 was only offered with a 4-cylinder engine even though BMW is known for building one of the best 6-cylinder engines in the world. Starting in 1997, the car was offered with the fabulous 6-cylinder engine, known for incredible durability and minimal upkeep, using only timing chains instead of the timing belts which needed periodic replacement. The 2.3 litre, 24 valve, 6-cylinder, fuel-injected engine, with the 5-speed manual Getrag gearbox, were together capable of producing a 0-60 mile-per-hour time of 6.8 seconds with a top speed of 128 mph. When James Bond drove one throughout the cult movie “Golden Eye,” the car became very popular. The later cars were built with the “wide body” rear-end treatment and were fitted with twin side airbags as well as the customary twin front units. Our car, beautifully finished in gleaming white with a striking puddy-color interior, was sold new in Indiana where it remained until 2005 when it moved to Fargo, North Dakota, then with @18,000 miles. It remained in Fargo, wintering in Fort Myers, Florida until 2021 when a local Gladstone resident, with a home in Fort Myers, purchased the car and brought it home. The car is in absolutely pristine condition throughout and drives as new. 29,722 miles. $22,000.
