The latest edition of the club magazine has a 6 page article about the driving impressions of Z3s.
A lot of these are based on the postings on here - some good pictures as well.
Sapphire black/Imola red and black interior/ red roof/ S54 - the only RHD one made.

I have an element of 'M-styling' on my car, If that's a good enough reason for the manufacturers to adorn a 320 with the M badge, then its certainly a good enough reason for me..

Just read the article, good read :rtm:

Just a couple of "misleading" errors in the last paragraph (the 2.5 engine was not available in the UK and side airbags were an optional extra from 04/99 with the new dual stage SRS system, not standard as implied if anyone is wondering why they don't have them or were they can buy a 2.5 from)
