1997 BMW Z3

Based on the E36 compact platform and weighing in at around 2,900 pounds, this Z3 2.8 was well-suited for the backroads from the factory. Black Z3M seats have been fitted for better lateral support, and the suspension has gained polyurethane bushings and aftermarket coilovers to tighten things up. This example has seen some recent work including a cooling system overhaul to help keep it running strong and it looks like it is ready to hit the backroads.

    Accidents usually aren’t deal-breakers, but they can affect the condition and value of the vehicle. We always recommend Carfax and AutoCheck reports followed by a pre-purchase inspection (PPI) - even if there are no accidents listed (as some accidents go unreported).
