BMW Z3 1.9i
Added: 16th of November 2013
I've had a Z3 BMW for three years now, & it has always been a pleasure to own. The car has always been totally reliable, all that has needed to be done is regular service & add fuel! Being a BMW, the build quality is as you would expect it to be, solid & good quality. The seats are comfortable on long journeys, & the heated option is nice for cold winter mornings or when the roof is down in a bright but chilly day. The interior of the car is well thought out & practical, and although modern, it is reminiscent of an old fashioned sports car. Fuel consumption is excellent, but that is because my car is the four cylinder model. I would think the six cylinder cars are quite a bit more thirsty. Of course, being a smaller engined model, the performance isn't breath taking, but it's certainly respectable & always fun, whether in town or ion the open roads. Road handling is excellent too. You always feel safe. The only downside to the car is that it has only two seats & not an enormous amount of luggage space, but if you require those things, a two seater sports car isn't really what you should own in the first place. That said, there are lots of storage spaces in the car, & some are lockable too, so it's still secure even with the roof down. From my experience with owning this car, I would recommend one to anybody. I have owned quite a few cars over the years, but this one is by far one of my favourites, well built, well thought out, fun & reliable.
