This is a rare Z3 coupe, not many produced and not many in NA. Very sought after cars that are appreciating in values, M version are in the 30k range. I am not in any rush to sell, this is a 3rd car/toy, used very rarely.
Car is in great shape for it's age. The only paint blemish is the left rear fender has a few waves from fender rolling, the other side rolled without issue and looks great. Otherwise the paint is in good shape. The interior is clean with no rips or tears and it is in great mechanical shape.

Serious Inquiries only, no low balls, I will not respond to any offers unless they are in person after seeing the car.

Back on the market. A few new notes from the seller:

Back up for sale now, Royal Purple Syncromax was put in the transmission.

Engine mounts are on the way, engine sits a little too close to the x-brace for my liking but the mounts don't look cracked or as bad as I've seen before but I'm replacing them anyways.

Just to explain all the work. When I do things I do them properly, these weren't all things that were neglected or in some cases even in need of replacing so let me explain.

The waterpump started to drip while running idle for 30 minutes being inspected by a potential buyers mechanic. This was my 3rd car my weekend toy, driven ~3k in the past year, it never showed any signs of cooling issues prior to this even in the FL heat.
That resulted in having the waterpump, tstat and hoses changed for good measure. The rad was replaced in 2012 and looked fine so I left it as that is easy to replace when needed.

Mechanic noted oil filter housing gasket, rear main and valve cover were leaking.
Note that this car never leaked a drop of oil in my garage. The rear main seal was maybe starting to sweat a little, i'll give him that.
I did the OFHG because it's a $5 part, but when I got to the housing, I found it was changed in 2015 but changed it anyways, it was dry around the housing, my guess is the mechanic saw oil from the previous leak because the engine wasn't completely cleaned after the repair in 2015 it looks like. Same for the valve cover gasket, I saw no signs of a leak but i changed it anyways.

Because of the RMS starting to sweat and any mention of this would start to make weak potential buyers weary, I did it and the Clutch, Flex Disc, CSB and a new slave. The clutch was fine prior to this, but because I was unsure of it's life, I threw in a Luk OEM Clutch in there, other items weren't really in bad shape after taking everything apart, but I had all the parts so I changed them anyways.

All this work should ease any concerns a potential buyer has, which is the main reason I did it.
Car shifts great and the clutch is so smooth now, all the work really tightens things up.

Added some new interior photos. It sounds like the paint issue on the roof has also been taken care of.

The wheels are the main story here. Work Meisters are pretty amazing. You can tell it's owned by an enthusiast with many other nice upgrades. I think the price is fair with or without the wheels.
