Voice your opinion for a magazine.

Post by Phil » Thu 23 Dec, 2010 11:43

During 2011 the BMW Car Club would like to put together an article for the club magazine. Depending on the volume of content depends on whether it runs over several months or just one.
What we want are opinions on your Z1,Z3 and Z4
What are the good points
What are the negatives.
How much to service.
How good to drive.
What are the negative driving experiences.
Smile factors.
Niggles
Running costs.
How easy to buy and what to look out for
Plus anything else you want to say about your Z experiences.
We then will try to put together some form of comparison between models, engine sizes etc..
You dont have to be a club member to voice your opinion.
Please pm me or add to the thread if you would like to contribute.
Cheers
Phil

I drive a 2001 3 litre Z3.

Good points: Plenty of torque, superb engine and gearbox.

Negative: Understeers when on/near the limit, traction control too intrusive.

Smile factor: Gorgeous over-run, M5 wheels, Full M Sport spec.

Niggles: Looks dated compared to the Z4, not the best build quality.

Running costs: Servicing/new set of tyres P/A = £1000 PA

Buying: Go for the straight 6.

Hope this helps.

Thanks GROMMIT.
The article was published in 3 parts -April, May, and June.
Sorry your thoughts have turned up too late to be used. :oops:
