Seller Description

This 1999 BMW Z3 looks like it just drove off the showroom floor. It is immaculate with nothing that needs attention, servicing, or updating. It is the perfect example of an Arctic Silver - Black Leather interior Z3. The entire cooling system has been replaced along with the CCV (crankcase ventilation) system. This is a Texas only car that has no rust on it at all. It has been lovingly attended to by its owners and garage kept. The car starts easily the first time, rides smooth and tight - as you would expect for a BMW! My wife has a “no drip policy” for our driveway and garage, this car does not mark its territory, it is solid.

When I purchased the car earlier this year, it was close to perfect, but needed some minor attention and a few components updated and serviced. This work was undertaken so that it would remain a perfectly reliable car for another twenty-one years. I am only selling this car because I have a once in a lifetime chance to purchase a vintage Jaguar and I can only have one toy at a time….

It has only been 6 months and 1k miles since we last saw this coupe. It has had quite a bit of service since then which is nice. It has also picked up some new headlights which aren't my favorite (the stock ones are included). The miles are still lower making the price seem fair.
