New BMW Z3 Roadster club meets April 27

Published 4:23 pm Wednesday, April 2, 2014

A group of local BMW Z3 Roadster owners have formed “The FoothillsZ3 BMW Roadster Club,” a local, non-affiliated organization with no membership dues or stringent rules, wholly intended for fellowship, fun, Z3 knowledge, sharing and eventually, participating in some charitable efforts.
As most know, the Z3 Roadster was the first to be built at the Greer BMW plant. These  Z3 classic sport cars were in production for (7) seven years: from 1996 through 2002. They came in many colors, 5 speed or automatic, 4 or 6 cylinders.
In 1996, they were so popular and in demand that most were sold before they could enter the various dealer showrooms. The body styles were made so similar during these seven years that most people had difficulty in guessing the model year. This was good for the consumer in several ways: one – many parts were interchangeable, and two – your Z never looked ancient. These roadsters have now become collectable classics.
The first “Foothills Z3 Club” meeting will take place on Sunday, April 27 at Harmon Field at 2 p.m.  Membership is just beginning; however, the word is getting out.
Mr. Warren Durham, owner of “BMW’s by WD,” has been invited to meet with the group to answer questions and share his many years of mechanical experience regarding BMWs, as well as other makes and models. All Z3 owners are invited to attend and join the group. Applications will be available. The meeting is informal with no agenda.
