"I bought a 1999 Z3 2.3 in 2000 with 8,000 miles on it but I always wanted the M roadster. The 2.3 was/is still a great car and I still have it w/ 230,000 miles on it. I found the M roadster w/ a factory hard top and watched it on a dealer lot for 6 mos. One friday two months ago it was mine. Since then, a drive to San Francisco and San Diego reinforced why I have two of these fine, sure to be classic automobiles."
