Seller Description

THIS... is a 1999 BMW Z3 Coupe, finished in Arctic Silver with a red and black leather interior.

  • This Z3 is equipped with the desirable 5-speed manual transmission.
  • The attached AutoCheck history report starts in 1999 and lists no accidents or mileage discrepancies in this Z3's past. It shows that it was sold new in California, that it moved to Hawaii in 2004, and that it relocated to Texas in 2020.
  • Modifications include 18-inch ESR wheels, BC Racing coilovers, a Supersprint exhaust system, aftermarket headlights, and a Pioneer flip-up touchscreen. This Z3 is equipped with a sunroof, wood interior trim, and leather upholstery, among other features.
  • Released for 1996, the Z3 was welcomed as a rear-wheel-drive roadster with two seats and a relatively affordable price tag; it was a true driver's car. BMW kept development costs in check by sourcing some components from the E30 and E36 3 Series parts bins, and it built the Z3 in South Carolina. 1997 brought a 6-cylinder engine, and the coupe arrived for 1999 with a shooting brake-like design that earned it the nickname Clown Shoe.
  • Power for this Z3 comes from a 2.8-liter straight-6 engine, which produces 193 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. It spins the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential.

I'm not positive, but I think this is a different seller than we saw on Ebay a couple weeks ago. The new photos are much better and appear to be a different location, but the interior photos are re-used from the previous listing.
