You won't find a better M roadster than this 1999 model. It has a beautiful blue exterior with a two-tone blue and black leather interior and 17" alloy wheels. At only 60,000 miles, it is in excellent condition. Owned by a collector who babied it. It is equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission, a 3.2L V6 Engine, convertible top, and heated seats. This has always been garaged and never seen ice.
You sit low and snug inside the M Roadster like all the great sports cars of yore. And like those vintage roadsters, the beltline is nice and low, so you have awesome visibility as well as plenty of room to hang your elbow out the side window while you cruise.
Once comfortably seated, it's easy to admire the beautiful simplicity and functionality of the M Roadster's retro-themed interior.
The uncluttered dashboard featured all the vital gauges a driver would need, and nothing more. No fussy navigation screens, no confusing network of buttons, just the essentials. BMW also clad all the important touch points in sumptuous leather or soft-touch plastics to impart a sense of luxury and occasion.
BMW did make a few concessions to certain luxury features well-heeled buyers expected from expensive sports cars like power and heated sport bucket seats, a premium sound system, and a power convertible top; however, that's pretty much it in terms of frills.
The classical proportions of the M Roadster design are complemented by elegant curves, handsome chrome accents and quad exhaust tips, and tasteful aerodynamic bodywork. The overall result is a timeless shape that looks fresh even compared to contemporary sports cars.
Many automotive journalists at the time likened the BMW Z3 M Roadster to a Germanic Shelby Cobra, and that's pretty much spot-on.
The BMW M Roadster looks and drives like the analog driver's car that it is, and we find this incredibly intoxicating.
And that's why the BMW Z3 M Roadster will be an enduring classic.
