Question about 1997 BMW Z3 Roadster
Could be the immobiliser. Do you have the original keys? If your key does not have a remote unlock, it's likely to be a "spare" key, which doesn't have an immobiliser chip in it. If you take your VIN to your dealer, they can get you a new key - at a cost. I've been quoted over $400 to have a key replaced.
Hope this helps.
