What used BMW Z3 sports will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a BMW Z3 sports?

A BMW Z3 will be dearer to buy and own than a Mazda MX-5, but it shouldn't lose much of its value while you've got it.

As on all BMWs, the Z3's servicing intervals vary according to how and where you drive – an on-dash indicator tells you when work is due. BMW dealers offer discounts for regular work on cars over four years old, but if they're still too dear, use one of the many reputable independent BMW specialists.
