2001 Z3 Coupe 3.0i (E36/8). This is NOT the convertible roadster, but man, this thing turns heads wherever you go! For this model year, there were only 11 made in Black Sapphire Metallic with black leather and wood interior! This is one of them! The unusual side profile has been given nicknames such as "clown shoe" and "bread van" by critics. In Germany, it has been referred to as a "turnschuh" (sports shoe). The coupé body style was only produced with a six-cylinder engine, this one has the 3.0i M54B30, listed on on Ward's 10 Best Engines through 2001–2003. It's been my daily driver for 15 years. Yes, it now has a few blemishes, but it still finds compliments every day! ...and you can fit 3 cases of wine under the rear hatch, just sayin'.
M54B30: The 2,979 cc (181.8 cu in) M54B30 is the largest M54 variant and produces 170 kW (228 hp) at 5,900 rpm and 300 N⋅m (221 lb⋅ft) at 3,500 rpm. Bore is 84 mm (3.3 in), stroke is 89.6 mm (3.5 in) and the compression ratio is 10.2:1.
