For sale on behalf of the owner, this Z3 represents excellent value for money and has plenty of potential to turn into a really nice car! RMC Classics have known the past two owners and the recent restoration works have been carried out by one of them (a professional engineer).
The early 2.8 wide-body Z3 is the best looking and, I’d say, the most desirable of the range, without spending thousands on an Z3M!
The car is HPI clear and has MOT until May 2019. The previous owner bought the car for his wife and undertook a great deal of preventative maintenance to ensure this would remain a reliable and usable car. When he bought it, it had covered 53,800 miles, and the clock currently shows 62,000. This is backed up with service history throughout its life, including a wad of bills and parts receipts from the recent work.
· Replacement second hand soft top in good order (drain holes cleared at the same time)
· Full service including oil and filter change, air filter, brake caliper sliders greased etc
· The car has been fitted with Calibre 18” split rims which were not cheap. Tyre treads are good all round – recently had 2 new rear tyres fitted.
· New coil springs
· ARB Droplinks
· Inner and outer track rod ends
· Complete radius arm assemblies which include lower ball joints, inner ball joint, lower radius arm rear bushes
· New brake discs and pads
· New coil springs
· New discs and pads
· Shock absorbers
· ARB Droplinks
...and much more!
The bodywork is straight and sound, with no rust bubbles or issues anywhere. The paint has a very a good finish – of course, it’s a 22 year old car so please don’t expect perfection. There is the odd car-park ding and scuff here and there but all in all, it’s clean and tidy.
Being a low-mileage car, the interior is also in good order and is a nice place to be. The car retains its original floor mats etc and is fitted with a CD player. The manual hood folds back with ease and a folding windstop is fitted.
The car drives nicely, stops in a straight line, and starts and ticks over with no overheating or oil pressure issues. It pulls like a train, the straight 6 engine is an absolute dream! All gears select nicely, in that BMW way, and the clutch bites nicely. It’s the perfect cruiser!
This car is an excellent basis for making a really nice example, but is ready to use and drive away. The current owner had planned to do a Tribute Ferrari 250SWB Replica but has decided that the car is too nice to chop and change!
