Re: Z3 3.0 M Sport Roadster

I wish you the best of luck with your sale but in the interest of any prospective buyers it is worth pointing out that this is not a Sport model.

Re: BMW Z3 3.0 Sport for sale

You may want to check the V5 to confirm whether it's definitely a Sport model. The front bumper insert would suggest otherwise.

Either way, it's no doubt a cracking motor and still priced well given current market value and upcoming season.

Good luck with the sale!
