This one is mine, it looks great, runs great, it's registered and has a clean Connecticut title in my name.

It's a 2001 BMW Z3 2.5i five speed with 81k miles on it. I bought it last year from an elderly couple. It is in absolutely beautiful condition. Forget about snow, I don't think that this car was ever driven in the rain. It still has factory chalk marks on the underside.

Within the past thousand miles, I have changed the engine oil (Mobil 1 0W-40 European spec), transmission oil (Redline D4), and Amsoil 75W-140 for the rear differential. The brakes are new with Brembo pads and new German made rotors, and I flushed the brake fluid. New driveshaft flex disc (Guibo) and driveshaft center bearing, along with a new fuel filter/fuel pressure regulator assembly and new air filter.

The wheels and tires are in excellent condition.

Everything works on this car, including the air conditioning and the original BMW stereo. I would not hesitate to drive it from one side of the country to the other and then back again.

This car isn't perfect, but it could be turned into a BMWCCA Concours contender with very little effort.

$8500.

Yes that is clean! I almost just bought a TR3 for 7k (and that was a great price) but this makes more sense.

Why am I the only one who doesn't understand owning a modern car and not driving it. My 996 has seen all weather and am proud of it. But that's just me.

Maybe she just needs to see a picture of one in Sienna Red...

If my wife had not bought the Stupid Solara convertible years ago, this would now be in our garage. This is what she started out looking for.

Free bump for what appears to be an awesome car.

After looking at photos of both Calypso Red and Sienna Red BMWs, you almost had me convinced. But then I went out and checked the tag on the super clean shock tower under the hood...

I'm sure that this guy has a nice car and all, but I don't think he's going to get his asking price. I sure am glad to be sharing a few days on eBay with him though.

Low mileage 2001 Z3, same color for $17,500
