1998 BMW Z3 Roadster 2.8 from UK and Ireland
Very very over -rated, bad handling
Major leaks in the boot, from somewhere.
Leaked in through the drivers door rubber seal.
Car wandered over the road even with the steering wheel kept still.
Clonk noise from the back axle.
Problems selecting reverse.
I was so upset about this car.
I hoped it would be all that I expected.
It was just awful. The seating position was poor and the offset pedals were very awkward. The gear box was OK, but my wife found reverse too difficult to select at all.
The handling was very wobbly and shaky. It stuck to the road well, but bounced around unbelievably.
I really feel that this is the worse car I have ever had. I am about to sell it and lose a lot of money, but I can't live with the leaks and bad handling any more.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Sounds like you bought a 'lemon'. I've had 4 of em' steadily gaining more power all the way. still sorry that you haven't enjoyed the car as much as others have though...
Very best regards.

Sound like you actually bought a car with some sort of rear damage... previous accident highly probable. Always take your car for a relatively long journey before purchase, B type road, highway etc.
