The 1997 BMW Z3 Roadster is moderately easy to maintain. The headlights can be reliably changed on account of the easy reach-behind access without the need for any tools. Similarly, the tail lights can be accessed without a problem, as they’re all located in a single bulb assembly in the trunk that’s easy to remove. The engine air filter is easy to change, with a single tray that slides out without hassle to allow you access to the filter itself.
However, the 1997 BMW Z3 Roadster has its downsides. The set-up to lower the spare tire from underneath the vehicle is very complex, which might be a problem when fixing a flat. The fog lights will require multiple panels and fasteners to be removed for access, which won’t make for reliable changes. The power steering fluid is located deep in the engine bay and might be difficult to reach.
