2000 BMW Z3 vs 1998 Ram Diesel
1998 Ram Diesel 1/4 Mile Time: 15.53 @ 89.02 MPH
2000 BMW Z3 15.07 @ 93.37 MPH
The E36/7 went into development in 1991 under Dr. Burkhard Göschel, being
designed by Joji Nagashima of the BMW design team into July 1992. The
resulting design was later frozen by 1993 and developed from the E36
platform of the 3 Series to production in September 1995 within 38 months.
The resulting platform is sometimes referred to as the E36/7 (roadster) or
E36/8 (coupé). The rear semi-trailing arm suspension from the E30 was used
rather than the more sophisticated multilink suspension from the E36. At
first, only the 1.9 L M44B19 straight-4 engine was offered, but its 138 hp
was not up to buyers' expectations. Interior appointments too were not up
to the standard of other BMW models, and the plastic rear window looked
poor compared to the glass unit found on the much less expensive Mazda MX-5
(Miata). Design patents were filed on April 2, 1994 in Germany and in
September 27, 1994 in the US.
In 1997 a more powerful 6-cylinder engine was added. The 2.8 L engine
(M52B28), similar to the BMW M52 straight-6 in the 328i except with an
all-aluminum block and head, was especially desirable with its 189 hp. The
M Roadster appeared in 1998 with a 3.2 L S52B32 engine (North America) or
more powerful 3.2 L S50B32 engine (International). In 1999, the 1.9 L
4-cylinder engine was replaced with a 2.5 L straight-6 M52TUB25, producing
170 hp in North America. Due to marketing, BMW wanted to differentiate the
2.8 L engine from the 2.5 L engine, so the smaller unit was badged a "2.3"
just like the 3-Series 323i, which also has a 2.5 L engine. Outside of
North America, the 1.9 L four-cylinder was replaced with a 2.0 L
straight-six in 1999, with 148 hp .
There have been V8 engines fitted into the Z3 by German tuning companies AC
Schnitzer (4.4L in roadster version, no series production) and Hartge (5.0L
in Coupé version, titled Hartge Z3 MQP V8).

All of the engines were replaced for 2001. The range now consisted of the
2.2 L M54B22 (available outside North America), 2.5 L M54B25, 3.0 L M54B30,
and (for the M Roadster) 3.2 L S54B32. All three of these straight-six
engines lasted through the end of the car's run in 2002. Also updated was
the car's interior appointments, though the plastic window remained.
