Running costs

Here’s where the four-pot Z3 shines. It’s generally a cheap and easy car to maintain if you keep on top of it and a healthy car will also reward you with few issues and decent fuel consumption, too. There’s not a lot of difference between the older and newer model so expect to see over 30mpg on a regular motorway jaunt and nearer 25mpg being light footed around town.

Foot to the floor driving will see less but the car can be enjoyed without hitting the redline on every gear change. Tax isn’t too much, costing £126.50 for six months or £230 for a year. The later cars from 2001 cost a little more at £145 for six months and £265 for 12 months and insurance on all models should be cheap as they are now eligible for modern classic policies.
