Negotiate to accumulate
REPORTS THAT BMW dealers have more Z3s than they know what to do with seem to have been exaggerated. Fiji and Orinoco special edition Z3s have been flooding the showrooms, with their special paint jobs, air conditioning, electric convertible roofs, leather trim, heated seats and alloy wheels. But, according to BMW dealers, their stock will be quickly sold - they can sell 1.9 roadsters all day long, because it is a cheap BMW. More open to negotiation are the Z3 2.8 versions. Approach an independent like Robert Hughes Management Group (01753 621221), with half a dozen on offer at pounds 30,995, a saving on the pounds 34,000 list price.
