THE BMW Z3 ROADSTER: Entering the new millennium with a fresh, new look

The first BMW Z3 roadsters were delivered to their proud owners in May 1996. With almost 170,000 sold, the Z3 roadsters have quickly become the market leader in its segment and are admired on roads the world over. Starting in April 1999, all models (with the exception of the M roadster) are receiving discreet but striking refinement: most notably of which are the rear wheel arches, now designed with more distinctive contours that accentuate the sporting character of the car.

THE BMW Z3 ROADSTER: Entering the new millennium with a fresh, new look

The first BMW Z3 roadsters were delivered to their proud owners in May 1996.
With almost 170,000 sold, the Z3 roadsters have quickly become the market
leader in its segment and are admired on roads the world over. Starting in
April 1999, all models (with the exception of the M roadster) are receiving
discreet but striking refinement: most notably of which are the rear wheel
arches, now designed with more distinctive contours that accentuate the
sporting character of the car.

The Z3 naturally retains its typical roadster styling - the low waistline, long
and sleek hood, and short, squat rear end. Now however, the waistline - which
reaches its lowest point next to the seats - rises up clearly towards the rear
end of the car. The re-styled trunk, L-shaped rear light clusters and the
re-designed rear bumpers, round off the roadster's look from the rear.

The front end of the Z3 has also been discreetly re-designed, offering fully
enclosed headlights, a BMW kidney grille (which always differs in styling
slightly from one model to another), and new wheels which all add to the new,
fresh look of BMW's successful model from Spartanburg.

The interior of the Z3 has also been upgraded in a number of significant ways.
The Z3 now comes with a new, smaller sports steering wheel that has an airbag
that ignites in two stages, roof lining with insulation protection, attractive
and pleasant-feeling plastic surfaces and a completely re-designed centre
console.

In technical terms the new Z3 is also state-of-the-art in every respect. All
models now come with the "six-cylinder axle" featuring a stiffer rear swinging
arm. There are two Z3 roadster engine variants offered in Canada - the Z3 2.3
(2.5 litre I-6) and the Z3 2.8 (2.8 litre I-6).

BMW Canada Inc., established in 1986 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of BMW AG, is
responsible for the distribution of BMW luxury/performance automobiles and
motorcycles. With the recent integration of Land Rover Canada as a division of
BMW Canada Inc, the BMW Group in Canada is represented by a network of 46
automobile and 12 motorcycle retailers across the country.
