    RSS Hello Friend, Perhaps You Should Buy A BMW Z3 Instead Of A Mazda Miata

    Hi there. You may find yourself on this website because you enjoy motoring and sometimes that motoring may require an open top vehicle. A Mazda Miata is a good and fine car, but it is not a BMW Z3 and thus is the inferior choice.

    That was probably the most terrible article I've ever read. I was actually genuinely interested in reading a comparison, but the link offered only the most pointless and completely irrelevant points of comparison imaginable. I mean, clearly the BMW if better because it has fender vents and people won't judge you for having an automatic? Seriously, that's the comparison? I sincerely hope this dude isn't being paid for writing this garbage.

    Please, don't waste your life clicking the link.

    I agree. I'm embarrassed. Remember this moment because it signifies the end of real automotive journalism whereas a meaningless post on Jalopnik becomes gospel.

    I have to agree with both of you. I was interested, because there are two BMW Z3 AutoCrossing and each one is in a different Class. I searched AutoTrader.com for used BMW Z3 and discovered that the first Z3's where 1.5 4 inline engines with 135 HP, later Z3 2.0 4's and finally 2.8 and 3.0 slant 6's with 185 HP. The writer was correct about the Z3 being a Cruser Tour car. I've found that Jalopkin often have crazy writers who really don't what they are talking about.

    Any time I see a Z3 I get that "this is my nemesis" kind of feeling. Like a camaro/mustang, supra/rx7, civic/celica, they just seem like really the only other 90's era miata competitor. They're a great looking car, with quite a few still on the road, and I feel like I know way too little about them. The article is just made so much worse by the potential it had to be great.
