All I can say is fucking sweet. That car is everything the Z3 should have been and isn't. The suspension is beautiful, hugs the road, does a good job of keeping the back end in check. It gets a little loose on a hard shift, but that car handles very well. The 3.0 6 cyl has great torque like the Z3 but this one acutally pulls through the rev range, instead of dopping off like the Z3. The shifter has a nice short throw and engages crisply. The 6 speed manual is geared very well. They took the time to setup the transmission so you can use all 6 instead of just adding a 6th gear to a 5 speed box. It is a blast to drive and if it wasn't $40k (there are other cars for that or less that I would rather have) I would have to think about trading in the teggy.
