Since its introduction in 1996, the Z3 roadster has enjoyed consistent popularity among buyers and plenty of admiration on the road. With its curvaceous, sexy silhouette and spirited engine, drivers love everything about this classic, fun convertible. On top of its sex appeal and fine engineering, the 1998 BMW Z3 benefits from all the prestige and reliability that comes with being a BMW. Best of all, with its reasonable price, the Z3’s thrills remain easy to attain for a young highway adventurer looking for some open-air thrills or a baby boomer who wants to recapture some of the fun of his college days.
The 1998 BMW Z3 provides one stylish, sexy machine, with all the curves and bright color you expect from an American roadster. Base-level exterior features include 16-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, and power exterior mirrors. Available optional features include chrome trim, metallic paint, and a power convertible roof for convenience.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1998 BMW Z3 M Roadster for purchase. Better known as the M Roadster, it was produced 1998 to 2002 and then again from 2006 to 2008. All models were produced in the Greer, South Carolina manufacturing facility, though the complete M engine was imported from Germany. The BMW M Roadster was designed to be the performance version of the BMW Z3, and there were significant differences between the two variants. The body of the M Roadster had many slight differences. These included front and rear bumpers, gills, rear wings, boot and mirrors. Under the skin many of the components were beefed up with many of them taken from the E30 M3 and E36 M3 Evo including brakes and much of the suspension. Based on the E36 platform, the Z3 Roadster was considered the E36/7 platform. The M Roadster could run a wider track under the flared wheel arches as well as wider wheels and tires to try to tame the increased power. A dual exhaust system fed each set of three cylinders to two dual tailpipes. This quad exhaust has since become an BMW M division signature. Other changes included adding a limited slip differential, a different gearbox and strengthening the chassis.
The Z3’s two-person cabin doesn’t offer a ton of space, but it offers plenty of comfort and fun to go around. Standard interior features include cruise control, a tachometer, a cassette player, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and air-conditioning. The 1998 BMW Z3 2.8 also includes leather seating. Optional features include heated front seats, sport seats, and a trip computer. The only downside concerns the limited trunk space, which restricts the Z3 to trips that don’t require a lot of gear.
