Dont get me wrong there fun cars to drive if your 5,8 but for the people that are 6 and over it starts getting cramped. And if you get one you most def. need a 2.8, 3.0 or the M. The 3.0's are so much fun to drive compaired to the 4 cyl model.
As a relatively new owner of a '99 Z3, I don't have a great deal of experience with them. But I am over 6', 230 lbs., and find the Z very comfortable. We, the wife and I bought it in Calif., drove home to Louisiana in 2 days. Last week we drove to Maine in 2 days, and back in same time. This trip we have made in several large American sedans. The little Bimmer was much more comfortable, (unless you plan on sleeping in the back seat).
