An affordable used roadster with the emphasis on fun


The BMW Z3 Roadster was first introduced in 1996, aiming to take on the likes of the Mazda MX-5 and MG F as well as the Mercedes-Benz SLK.

It did well with the first two, as a more premium offering than both, but wasn’t as fun to drive as either. It also struggled to hold its own against the premium might of Mercedes, but then it wasn’t as expensive either.

As with all BMWs, the Z3 Roadster had an internal code. In this case it was E36/7, and it was joined in 1999 by the E36/8, which was called the BMW Z3 Coupe and known affectionately as a ‘breadvan’ thanks to its ‘shooting brake’ design.

Engine options along the way included 1.8 and 1.9-litre petrol and a 2.8-litre joined the range shortly after launch.
