This is one of my personal favorite Z3 Coupes out there. I wish I had room at my house; it's basically how I'd option a Z3 Coupe if I were to order one now. Since the last time we saw it, it's had some good upgrades including TC Kline coilovers and Apex wheels and lots of great maintenance. The price seems fair for the condition, upgrades, and awesome color combo.
