This rare and desirable Z3 Sport Edition Roadster is finished in factory original Estoril Blue Metallic, (Code 335), an expensive option when new from the BMW Individual range. The stunning paint finish has been very well preserved and boasts a bright uniform shine. Only light and minimal stone chips to the bonnet affect an otherwise wonderful paint finish, and all factory panels are straight and damage free. The original three layer soft-top, upgraded as an option to Dark Blue cloth, is fully intact with only faint marks and electrically operates in seconds. The Perspex rear screen has light scratches. Factory stickers and protective film in the door shuts as well as the BMW Routine Maintenance sticker to the inner boot lid affirm this as an unmolested example. This wide bodied Z3 is every inch a special edition and has been preserved exactly as BMW intended.
Also remaining precisely as BMW intended, this clean interior bares all the hallmarks of devoted ownership. The factory optional Black Classic leather upholstery, (Code R7SW), remains in beautiful condition with firm bolsters. Only close scrutiny will reveal very faint hairline creases to the driver’s outer bolster. The leather trimmed steering wheel still displays bright red/blue M Sport stitching, and the matching black door cards and carpeting are impeccable. The dashboard is perfect and houses fully functioning equipment to include the original BMW Business stereo system which features a six disc changer in the boot. The brushed aluminium centre console remains fitted, a unique feature standard on the Sport Edition Roadster. A fabulously preserved interior, ready for open top enjoyment in seconds.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION

The spotless engine bay displays factory plates, stickers and even the usually lost green PDI markings. The five speed manual short throw gearbox is light and precise. This outstanding straight six Z3 drives as wonderful as it sounds!
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES

The original space saver spare wheel, jack, warning triangle and complete BMW toolkit are with the car, and the boot carpet even has the small felt jack locator sticker still attached! Front and rear disc brakes with anti-lock assistance (ABS) offer superb stopping power.
