I'm sure this has been answered before, and I tried searching, but I was hoping to get a more recent answer as we have many new members.
Moms wants a Z3. While almost everyone in my fam drives Nissans (currently 5 in the immediate family, and many more throughout), I am starting to sway them towards Bimmers. She (as well as myself when I steal it on a nice day) will want some power she's been driving a 5.0 V8 vert for a decade eventhough it will be decidedly an auto
. So which is the best of the Z3 (year, engine, etc.)? I'm guessing I will have about $16-19K to play with. Also, is there's an early SMG in a non ///M available? I might be able to get her to go for that if so. Any knowledgeable replies would be greatly appreciated :wink
