The differences between the M and regular Z3 were more noticeable on the interior. The M had a different steering wheel, an entirely different gauge cluster with different colors and more gauges. Nearly every option offered for the Z3 came as standard on the M, so there wasn’t much of an option. The Nappa leather interior was offered in several special colors only available on the M, and there were obviously M logos sprinkled liberally throughout. Things like heated power seats, the power top, air conditioning and cruise control might seem to run contrary to the spirit of a roadster as nothing more than a pure driving experience. But with as expensive as the car was, BMW was probably right to expect its customers to want a well equipped interior. All M versions were available only with a manual 5 speed transmission.
BMW’s $43,000 price tag for the M version was a sizable bump over the stock version.
5 Speed manual transmission.
