Build quality, easy to drive, retro styling.
Expensive, smaller engines are unexceptional.
The rear-wheel-drive Z3 roadster was an upmarket alternative to MX-5 or MGF, being neither as expensive nor as prestigious as the clever Mercedes SLK. Like the MX-5, Z3 is a successful exercise in retro styling that's fun, fashionable and appeals equally to men and women. It's not a particularly exciting drive with the smaller engines, but the six cylinder 2.8 and 3.0 units transform it.
Style statement or true sports car? It's your decision, but plenty of buyers are sufficiently tempted to take the plunge.
