The sublime Bright Red paint retains a lustrous finish and looks marvelous along those smooth Z3 lines. The finish is extremely good throughout, with only a handful of discreet blemishes to note on very close inspection. The electric folding soft-top looks particularly smart against the vibrant bodywork, remaining in wonderful condition with no marks or wear to speak of. Likewise, all light clusters and trim pieces retain a fresh appearance.

The black leather upholstery has really stood the test of time, presenting exceptionally well with minimal wear to be found. It still remains soft to the touch having resisted the urge to harden in the sun. The bolsters are in remarkably good order and are free from any scuffs or sagging. The dash and centre console are in equally fine condition, with the switchgear and shift knob showing almost no signs of use. A set of velour floor mats protects the footwell carpets.

The Z3 is equipped with the same 2.8-litre straight-six as used in the E36 328i. Producing a healthy 189hp the car reaches sixty in just 6.5 seconds. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a silken five-speed gearbox and Torsen limited-slip differential. The engine bay itself is wonderfully tidy, with a fresh appearance retained throughout. Having been well maintained from new the car remains in excellent fettle, performing faultlessly on test.

The 16-inch five-spoke wheels are in pristine condition having just been refurbished to the highest standard. They are shod in a matching set of Continental Premium Contact tyres, each with ample tread remaining. A brake fluid service was carried out in February 2017; the rear shock absorbers were replaced at this time also.

The Z4 was first registered in October 1997 and was supplied new by First Front (Wimbledon) Ltd. Since that time the car has been well maintained at close mileage intervals by each of its four keepers. In fact, nine of the ten services were carried out at BMW main dealers, with only the most recent having been undertaken by a specialist; this is detailed below.
