Seller Description

One of the most interesting cars BMW ever built, this 1999 Z3 Coupe has been enthusiast owned for three years. Will be posting more pictures.

My intention was to track the car so I lightened it a bit, but after reading up on potential subframe issues, I decided not to track it. This car has not been abused (never drifted, no burnouts) but it is a blast to drive. Car is stored during the salty months. I've used it as a daily driver in the summer/fall. The car is not perfect but it has been well maintained. No leaks or running issues.

This is a driver's car built before BMW's injection of infotainment systems.

It's been 3 years since we last saw this coupe. I still the the color combo (tanin red interior), but it needs some photos. It's had some good maintenance and upgrades done since we last saw it.
