Hi i am thinking of buying a 1999 z3 with 73k miles. It is in excellent condition.
I do not know a great deal about cars so could anyone give me some advice on what to look for when going to have a look.
The engine should last until 150k shouldnt it?
when should the cat be changed and will the timing chain last the lifetime of the car?

thanks for your time

i would like to add the following!!!!

LOOK FOR LEAKING ROOFs, i bought a z3 with leaking roof and it was a nightmare in the rain and at the car wash. feel for damp carpets and see if the interior is stained if no leather. other than that it is a fantastic little two seater
