"Very Sturdy. I've been rear ended twice and I was surprised at how solid this little car really is. Although I wouldn't want to experiment with a side crash. The Z3 will turn on a rail and overall it handles quite well. The body style is a classic and you will either love it or hate it (I loved it). It's very dependable, but when it needs to be repaired, it is going to cost you if you are not mechanically inclined. I was always able to find parts online much cheaper than a dealer or secondary mechanic would charge me. It is basic on its comfort. Seats are nicely done, but designed for more of a sporty look and feel - vs - a luxury / comfort feel. I would recommend purchasing one with a manual transmission. This car is zippy and performs much better as a manual transmission than an automatic. LOTS OF FUN!! Overall, great vehicle. In my book it gets 5 stars. I love it and will keep it (as my two middle boys are both laying claim to it someday)."

"the bmw z3 is a fantastic car for people that want a reliable, stylish, and premium feel without breaking the bank. The car still feels like it did when it was new with no rattles and still feels tight. it handles turns like nothing else and feels like your in a big go cart on the road. I would recommend this car to anyone that wants to have a car that can keep up with the best of them through the twisties, and being stylish at the same time."

"I had two Miatas previously and they were not near the car. Interior could be a little better especially the door panels and glove box."
