I'm 6-1 and I have plenty of headroom and legroom in my Z3 roadster. Previously I had a Z4 roadster.. In comparison, overall I did have more room in my Z4, but I do not feel cramped in the Z3.

I would seriously consider pursuing if I were you. Z3s have their issues, but they are a blast to have. I see that it has the sport seats, I have them as well and like them very much.

You will easily get 200,000 miles, and then some, from a Z3.. Don't be fearful of one with 50, 60 or even 70k miles. I picked mine up 2 years ago.. It had 84k miles... I paid less than 9k..
