A really nice BMW Z3 in the desirable wide-body 6-cylinder 2.8l form and unusually spec’d in rare 275 Boston Green metallic with matching Mossgreen Oregon leather trim.  Understood to be one of only circa 4400 vehicles produced in this year/spec (in all colours) and the top of the range Z3 when introduced.

A really nice wide-body Z3.  Its extensive history shows that this has been a well-cared for car.  The BMW Service Booklet is present and shows a long record of regular maintenance with the last service at 88,716 miles.  Papers in the history folder show previous MoTs, parts and service invoices and the car remains with the original BMW wallet and 7 booklets.

The body and paintwork are in very good condition, with the interior also very smart and just some slight wear to the driver’s seat bolster to note.  The electric hood operates smoothly and quickly and the hood rear window has been renewed.  The electric seats operate normally and the electric windows are smooth and fault-free.  A CD multi-changer is fitted in the boot and the original tool kit and jack are present.

On the road, this is a quick car with 190bhp and 207lb-ft and 6.6sec in the 0-60 dash.  There is plenty of ‘go’ but she is docile at lower speeds, the gearbox nice and smooth and the steering positive and slop-free with brakes that are positive, pulling up straight.

In summary a nice Z3 with the desirable 6-cyl 2.8 engine, in quite rare green metallic paint and matching leather interior and driving well.  Plenty of history and the BMW wallet of booklets complete the package.  Little to detract with this car, just some light kerbing to the alloys and the usual electrophoretic reaction in the driver door mirror swivel point.

A nice Z3 in a very attractive paint and trim colour scheme and with no foreseeable expenditure.

Price: £4995
