Our 1998 BMW Z3 M Roadster has been sent to the Paint Shop to be stripped down for respray, primed, bumps, and scrapes fixed and rust removed.
Once the dents had been corrected and the body sanded and stripped, it was time for the BMW to receive a high build primer coat which allows the paint to stick. The next stage will be for the BMW to go back to the spray booth for masking and respray.
This stunning car will soon be up for grabs in one of our competitions! Keep your eyes peeled for a smart red modern classic coming your way!
Arriving in our workshops we have our 1998 BMW Z3 M Roadster. Having been owned by the same family for 20 years the car we have purchased the car ourselves and will look to carry out a few remedial works before offering the car to market. The Z3 M Roadster is becoming a very rare car to find nowadays.
As you can see from the images the original paintwork is still in overall good shape but the sun has damaged the front and rear bumpers and the top lacquer is starting to peal. We will look to carry out a full respray on the car to freshen up the exterior look.
The Z3 M Roadster model was introduced in 1997 (ours is a 1998) as the high performance version of the BMW Z3. Cosmetic differences between the Z3 M and the standard Z3 models included front and rear bumpers, grilles, boot and mirrors.
In the 6 years from 1997 to 2002, 15,322 M Roadsters were produced.
The M roadster is electronically limited to a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
