Though BMW engineers gave the Z3 a fixed steering-wheel position, they picked a comfortable setup; the relationship between the wheel, shifter, and pedals is hard to fault for enthusiastic motoring.
An open car like the Z3 presents designers with a formidable challenge: With no fixed roof to lend rigidity, the floorpan, door sills, and transmission tunnel in particular need to be hellaciously strong, otherwise substantial flex occurs.

Despite this the Z3 is not quite on a par with the far cheaper MX5 - it may be less luxurious, but very little comes close to the MX5s perfect balance, and the MX5 even comes with a heated glass back window.
That said the Z3 truly is a real fun sports car, throwing another totally new light on the basics of two seater sports car design.
We love the Z3 2.8, it is beautifully finished and we're glad that not every one likes it's looks - anything so blatantly contemporary will always have its critics if it is any good.

The South Carolina-built BMW Z3 is the first Bond car ever that was not born in the British Isles.
And styling is something that the Z3 has in abundance, combining elements of previous BMW roadsters, especially the 507 of the 1950's and the more recent Z1, with a heavy dose of 90's aggressiveness.
The Z3 thus offers both a sophisticated, taut ride, and more than ample sports car-like grip that can still be manipulated by the throttle when desired.

 1996 BMW Z3
Built around a shortened chassis developed from BMW's 3-Series coupes, the Z3 is a little longer, wider and heavier than the Miata, with a slightly longer wheelbase and wider track.
The Z3 conveys a stronger sense of solidity than the Miata, and we'll be surprised if it falls prey to the buzzes, squeaks and rattles that show up in a lot of other convertibles.
However, the Z3 is a better car--roomier, quieter, more substantial and built to a slightly higher standard.

Although based on relays, the Z3 was very sophisticated for its time; for example, it utilized the binary number system and could perform floating-point arithmetic.

The development of the Z4 and the Zuse Apparatebau from 1942 to 1945 in Berlin is described, and also the slightly modified architecture of the Z4 for the ETH-Zürich in 1950.

 DCRP Review: Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z3
The DiMAGE Z3 ($549) is the first ultra zoom camera Konica Minolta to use their exclusive Anti-shake image stabilization system (unless you consider the A-series ultra zooms, which I do not).
The Z3 took a well-exposed, sharp photograph of the usual night scene, though I was dismayed by the noise levels (which will be a recurring theme in this section).
The DiMAGE Z3 is one of the very rare cameras that lets you use the zoom lens during filming.
