The Z3, in my opinion, was absolutely a case of never meet your heroes. Fantastic looking car and engine, but the car felt very cobbled together and I really wasn't impressed with the build quality.

Every time I drove the Z3 I would just think about how much better my 318ti was to drive, with a tighter chassis and less squeaks, rattles, drivetrain noise, etc. I got very tired of dealing with that car, and I did a lot of work to try to make it better. Pulled interior panels and put felt at fastener and rub spot locations, new bushings throughout, and more.

The 128 feels like a huge step up from the ti, as it should. Very happy with it so far.
