Finished in 668 solid Jet Black paint, the paintwork is extremely glossy, shiny and overall finished to a high standard. This low mileage example has hardly any stone chips to the front or rear flared arches.
The exterior rubbers, matching etched glass, lenses and trim all look original in lovely condition.
The interior of the Z3 has been optioned to a very high standard and in our opinion a beautiful colour combination.
Finished in optional Beige / Dark Beige full Oregon leather.
The interior dials and switch gear function correctly and show virtually no signs of use.
The interior is timeless.

Sports seats, polished Maple wood trim, air conditioning, leather M steering wheel, front passenger air bag, front seat heating, graduated tinted screen, heated door mirrors, rear roll over bars and factory BMW tracker.
Engine and Transmission
The 2-8 litre straight-six engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and limited slip differential, the drive is as you would expect, pure BMW.
The vehicle performs beautifully having just benefited from a major service and health check, to include oil and fluids.
The engine and transmission feel tight and as you would expect an 11,000 mile engine and gearbox to perform.
The vehicles undercarriage and wheel arches have been cleaned and retain a finish as you would expect a vehicle with such low mileage.
