You're under 45 and own a Z3?
Just got to thinking after reading a thread about why do you love your Z3. I noticed most of the respondents were 45+ and got me thinking how many of us Z3 owners are in the younger set. I'm 36 and bought my Z when I was 32. Any others out there?

37 here. Should have bought one years ago.

I'm 25, bought my Z4 in May. (and yes, I work a 15 hour night shift to afford it)

Amancuso. Just remember, like our cars, us over 45 are like a fine bottle of wine. We get better with age. LOL Not to mention feeling younger driving our Zs. LOL

I'm 27 and I bought my M coupe when I was 21.

Bought my z(4) at 22. A responsible adult was trying to talk me into something cheaper and putting the difference in stock market. Looking at the stock market in 2008-2009, sure am glad didn't listen to anyone :) car was super fun

babyZ 08-18-2012 08:07 PM

Just turned 21 yesterday! Had the car for about a year. Most fun car to drive, ever.

Das Stig 08-18-2012 09:16 PM

well, looks like im the youngest. I got my z3 coupe a month after my 17th birthday. I've had two jobs since i was 14 and saved every paycheck until i had enough.

Age is only a number in a Z3
I'm 71, have had my Z3 for two months, and enjoy the heck out of it.

I think you are seeing a lot more younger people with them as they get cheaper on the used market.

Most younger folks cannot afford a $30K+ car for a toy. :)

That is a GOOD way to get banned from the forum. :D

Not me, but a guy that worked for me bought his first Z3 brand-new in his early 20s. He autocrossed it for several years, eventually broke the subframe, and has had Z3 M Roadster for a few years. I went to his 40th birthday party last year.

BTW, I'm nearly 62 and bought my Z4 M Roadster last month. Before that I owned a 2000 S2000 for almost 13 years.

39 here and just bought a 98 M Roadster....should have done this years ago!

dadmog 08-21-2012 12:46 PM

58 now; bought my Z3M when I was 46...

Pinecone 08-22-2012 06:53 AM

Come to think of it, bought our M Roadster at 46. :)

Trapper 08-22-2012 07:05 AM

I turn 50 latter this year. Bought my Z4 this spring as a birthday present to myself....and if I had know how much fun it is to drive I would have bought one years ago.

I also charge anyone who say's I'm having a midlife crisis a $1.00:bareass: ůmid life was 10 years ago:supdude:

Pinecone 08-23-2012 04:26 AM

impreza276 08-23-2012 05:50 PM

Tons of young Z4 owners out there but I have yet to see a Z3 owner who did not look like he had grand kids.
