When I got mine in 2000, bought on the Thursday and drove to France on the Saturday down to Figeac, just over 1000k in one hit, got to Figeac and the sun was beating so dropped the softop and got a round of applause from curious onlookers. Don't think they had seen either a Z3 or a car with a dent in it!

Hi, luckily there are a few more Z3's in France now. The car club that I belong to here in the Charente has 3 of them.
Unfortunately you are right about the amount of cars that have dents in them. The French do not seem to have pride of ownership when it comes to their day to day cars. Completely different story when it comes to their classic car.
A good Z3 (lhd) can be at least double the cost over here. My Z3(3.0i) is a rare site, the other 2 cars are 2.8 & a very impressive Z3M.
And just the weather over here for the Z3, a balmy 30c as I type this.
