"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)."

Pros: "Nice firm but not too hard of a ride."

Cons: "Interior could be better."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"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."

"This is the best vehicle we have owned. We travel a lot and on the road it handles like no other car. It truly is a road hugger and has kept us out of many possible accidents by it's quick response and manuverablity. It is wonderful on very curvy roads. Driving the speed limit we get pretty good gas mileage, but it is a hard car to hold back. It can get a bit unsteady in standing water, because of the large tires. BMW knows how to manufacture their vehicles. I am the original owner. It is my second Z3. I fell asleep driving with my first and I was unhurt, but the car was totaled. It only had 3,000 miles, what a sad day. My second car has the bigger engine and all the extras. An awesome drive."
