Guys, I found a UT Goldeneye Z3 in metallic blue (light blue) for 17 bucks. What do you guys think of this model? How's the engine and interior detail?

May I be allowed to quote a friend of mine on this one :giggle

UT made this model of the Goldeneye Z3, and it was one of the first of many versions of the Z3 roadster and coupe they released. Frankly it is one of their worst models ever and in no way reflects the average standard of UT models which tended to combine good value with high quality (a rare feat). There are no brake calipers, just featureless plastic discs, the front headlights do not look right, the interior is extremely plasticky, the boot lid does not open and the engine bay detail is average. Hence it only gets 5.5/10 marks (a low score for a UT). What earns it it's 5.5 marks is the nice blue paintjob and the fact that it is reasonably well made and of course the only Bond version of the Z3 available .......Unquote

There you go , pretty much a spot on review of the 007 z3 .
Mind you , I still have one and like it alot .

The 007 Z3 is an old model and that's reflected in it's appearance and level of detail. OTOH, the packaging is very nice and it's a must for Bond fans. I'd never sell mine and I think $17 is a very good deal.

The Z3 was the 1st bimmer I really liked, so I always had a soft spot for it. I found one in my local eBay for $17, so it seamed like a good deal. But I read in a review at DZ that there are two versions of this car from UT, one with a better dash board and seat belts and the other without. This one that I found doesn't have the belts. Is it worth it? Does anyone have pics of the interior and engine?

But 17 bucks is a good price.

Interesting, I wasn't aware of a second version. I just checked mine and it doesn't have seat belts or brake callipers but the straps are still intact. :giggle :cheers

For $17 it is worth getting I think, but only if you want it because of the Bond connection. Otherwise, the "facelifted" versions of the Z3 are much nicer than the original UT Z3 releases.

Sorry to bring back this old topic, but I would like to buy a Goldeneye Z3, and I noticed there are 3 versions with or without seat belts.

1. dealer version like this, without seat belts


2. car pointing to the left in the box, without seat belts (I think this is the most common one, right?)


3. car pointing to the right in the box, WITH seat belts


Could any DXer confirm this, and is it true that the version 3 has an improved dashboard?

I know that the quality of these models is way below the current Autoart, but they are the only Goldeneye Z3's available, and I think for ~20 euro's, they are worth it.
Many thanks!!
