I love my Z3 Coupe. It has that great tight feeling when driving, accelerates like a beast & is the perfect size for me. I don't mind it only being 2 seats (I never had to drive carpool) & I love the cargo space. My 2 dogs easily fit in the back & I can raise the protective cargo net to keep them back there. I can also haul 50lb bags of horse feed w/ no problem. The gas mileage is pretty decent - I average about 27 mpg so not great but good enough to make me want to use this as my daily driver
