Long front end, so don't park into a curb. Tight and quick steering. Great acceleration with the smaller 2.5! Great braking. Fun Roadster!! Quick power top!

Beats all other small convertibles. I tried Honda, Toyota, Mazda, Mercedes, Fiat, MGB, VW, and so on. I also own a 528i, but I'm not biased at all. If it is a great car, I say so. This is a phenomenal car. I work on it myself, but really, nothing has gone wrong...except the motor for the top. The design is such that water backs up (from clogged drainage holes) with debris and floods the top's electric motor. Water vs electrical component? Water will be the destroyer of every pump, every time. BMW knows, now, that this is a poor design. I relocated my pump, after replacement, into the trunk. Viola! Never another problem. In spite of this, this car is unmatched in fun, performance, handling, and coolness. I am going to buy another one so I can have 2! I want a 2.5 for comparison. These cars are that good! Just test drive one. You will be a believer and find a way to get one. Mark my words. Enjoy, and be safe.

This car is beautiful!! Very sexy and sleek. Just looking at it, it drips of performance and wants to go fast. That's the only positive things I have to say about it and why I have kept it but am considering moving on. The car seems to have one malfunction after another with no end in sight. To list a few of the more recent issues that needed to be fixed: Convertible top motor, all abs sensors, new starter and new coolent reservoir. Add the regular maintenance cost such as breaks, tires and other miscellaneous things that just need to replaced and be ready to fork out some serious $$$! This is my second German car and all I have to say is, "So much for German engineering!"

What more do you want!

just simply a Fun, fast, unique car! i just bought a white 04 z4 with red leather and couldn't be happier! drove a TT for years, loved it, but like the z4 much better because of comfort and exterior design. interior isn't as fancy as i would like, but who needs a GPS when your having fun getting lost driving around! very low to ground, makes for a little awkward "in and out" ... but who cares! gets tons of compliments, looks amazing from all sides. you don't see these cars all over the place which makes them even more unique. great around corners, i live in pacific northwest, and wet windy roads are super fun! ... nice and quiet with top up!

A great car even after 6 Years

So I bought a 2004 Z4 with 17K miles on it a moth ago. Drove it from Pittsburgh to Chicago to get it home and it was a blast! Wow! This car is comfy, roomy, powerful, reliable, and fun! The 2.5 has quite the power and I can't really notice a difference vs. the 3.0. What more can you ask for? The prices are very competitive these days for a pre-owned. I test drove a Z3 10 years ago and hated it so I bought a MR2 Spyder. This vehicle tops them both by far. Fairly quiet with the top up, especially for a convertible. and you can't really feel the wind too bad when its down.

Very Impressive Indeed!

Just bought a 2004 Z4 with 17K miles and this vehicle drives very impressively. I drove the vehicle home 600 miles and it was very comfortable, handled nicely, and was just a blast to drive. This is my first BMW. In the past I've owned a 2000 MR2 Spyder and this Z4 tops it by far. Great trunk space, powerful motor, roomy interior. I really think I can drive this vehicle everyday if I wanted to.

I had this 2004 Z4 3.0 for the last 4 years. Silver titanium. It is impressive, I love it very much. Drove it all year around in Detroit and Minneapolis. This car is great on snow with the right tires. It is fun to drive. I test drove the SL55 AMG as my next car possibly. Let me tell you, I have to think twice now. Z4 is even more than what we may think. It has been difficult to choose something else after you drive this car. Most likely it will be SL55 AMG though for me tough decision to move from the Z4 even after more than 4 years driving it all year around. Never drove a car for that long. Go get one don't even think twice about Z4. :)

I bought this car as a CPO with 13,000 miles on it. I have not been disappointed at all. Living in Southern California, this car does it all for me, from running to the grocery store to taking it for a run in the mountains. This is not a weekend toy for me; I use it regularly. I drove this car cross-country and was pleasantly surprised by comfort level it gave me on a 6000 mile trip. Its performance is excellent; it sticks to a mountain road like glue even on wet/icy pavement. I have every option but the nav system; the power driver's seat definitely ups the comfort level. I definitely recommend the 6 speed manual; it's a pain sometimes in LA traffic, but worth it overall.

Great Weekend Toy

Great toy for the weekends. Never even a warranty item. Corners great. I have the SMG package which takes getting use to. Boxster S killer and Porsche owners always hate to loose! Drawbacks, cup holders are useless but necessary to have drinks in the Florida heat. This is a sports car and a bumpy sports car ride with stiff seats. Anything past a couple hours it hard on the butt.

Let's face it. People buy cars like this for their fun factor, and perhaps for their "cool" factor as well. The Z4 does a bang-up job of providing both while delivering upwards of 25 mpg. It's a bit of a chore getting in and out, especially for a 6'2" guy like me, but once you're inside it's surprisingly roomy if you lower the seats all the way. The power convertible top works perfectly, and the interior is gorgeous. The ride is stiff, but the car runs and handles fantastically. My only complaint: you have to be careful when parking or you'll scrape the underside of the front cowling.

Z is good for me

I got this car when I finally could afford one and wow it did not disappoint. I got the SMG based transmission and that thing is a total blast. I love the car so much that I am leasing a new 07 Z4 3.0si starting in 2 days! My only gripe is that the Z series is always behind in cool technology that the 3 series has. No siruis radio. Pathetic. It's a very small gripe on a kickin' car!

This thing is sleek, corners well, good turning radius, punchy 0-60 for the amount of money spent, the stereo system is decent for a stock set-up. A little awkward getting out of the vehicle but this is nothing new for a sporty vehicle / roadster. All in all it's a great car!

Really have enjoyed the Z4. Lightweight but feels rock solid on the road. Outstanding handling, steering feedback. Acceleration is very good, though of course I always want more. Very firm ride, can border on jarring on bad roads, but much better than M3 convertible. Actually very comfortable for distances on reasonable smooth roads. Only significant complaint pertains to most of BMW lineup: runflat tires. They are more firm, don't help performance, are stocked by very few local shops, and are VERY expensive. Cheapest local quote: >$1,000 for 2 tires w/ installation. Ordered from Tirerack.com but even then was >$700 w/ installation. Not great given many folks had treadlife issues.

Ok, really... this car gets more looks than YouTube. Every place I go/park, someone comments on it. And, it's all positive, and I couldn't agree more! This is one fun car to drive/have. Come on, face it... it's not a practical car but who cares! If you want practical, buy a sedan. This car reeks of attitude, confidence and carefree fun!

This car is great. It is the most fun someone can have driving. Pop the car into sport mode and you're gone. The car moves with a single touch, there is no lag what so ever. The only negatives are its small size (but you already know that) though a spacious trunk for the size of car, and the car isn't the most comfortable thing for trips longer than 2 hours. I would highly recommend this car to anyone who wants a fun car. It is not the best family car but strap in and hit some open road and try not to smile. You can't help but love it.

The Z4 drives and handles as excellent as it looks. The controls and cockpit are well appointed, roomy, comfortable, and everything at your finger tips. The cargo area will hold a 22" travel bag with room for two small duffles or two small golf bags. All in all the Z4 is the Ultimate Driving Machine.

Hi, I am full time mom, have a "minivan" because I have 3 kids + few friends to lug around. But buying Z4 was exactly what I was looking for. It is reliable, handles beautifully and looks very hot. Gas mileage is excellent and I can take one of the kids at a time to have a good conversation going... weekends to enjoy with my husband. He has porsche for his weekend car but somehow we always end up driving mine (wonder why? :-)). The size of the trunk is perfect for one good food store shopping or to fit all my stuff for cool weekend. As I said,"It's all I was looking for!"

I am able to stand when exiting the car rather than rolling out of it with the corvette. Very quiet ride with the top up and with the windscreen in place with the top down. Quality craftsmanship both in the exterior and interior desgn. After all, it is the ultimate driving machine.

This little car is a real blast to dirve. I have owned 535s, a new M3, MGB, 442 and numerous fun cars, but none as much fun as this little ragtop. It gives you total feel of the road, which when bumpy perhaps too much. But once again it's a sweet ride. My Z is black with a tan top and while some are critical of the styling, I get lots of "I was admiring your car" and such. The 6 speed is smooth as silk and the 3.0 delivers pleanty of power. I can't wait to test drive the new M series. I can't recommend this car enough to anyone looking for a roadster.And your BMW dealer probably has a demo for you to check out before ordering. Thats what happened to me as a four test drive convinced me.

After owning MGs, Eclipses, and Triumphs, I finally found the one true sports car that "fits". It is reliable, handles like a dream and is truly beautiful to view. I get excellent gas mileage and have the pickup and speed to feel confident, even in the worst traffic. The 3 cubic feet of trunk is enough for my wife and myself to go on weekend trips and she can take ALL her stuff!!! All in all it absolutely meets my needs.

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this car. This is the first manual transmission I have ever even tried to drive and after owning this BMW Z4 I will never drive an automatic ever again. Besides the fact that it has superior craftsmanship, great styling, and is a blast to drive I get great gas mileage that really helps with the rise of prices at the pump. My next car will definitely be a BMW!

I really love driving this car, it handles like a dream in the sport mode. I really like to shift it with the steptronic transmission, it shifts very smooth. I also like the easy to read gauges at night, the orange dash lights are just cool. I have all the options and packages you can get with this car except for the navigation. I also want Sirius radio which I can get but the trunk mounted antenna just don't work for me. It's a little hard getting in and out of because it is low to the ground but onced you're in and settled you can for hours with the top down and the windscreen in place.

Originally got this for my wife. I'm stealing it from her and getting her a 5 series. I still don't understand why the styling is "controversial"...I get more approving stares and chatter about this car than I ever thought possible. We have the 3.0 with the Sport Pkg. Ride is firm for sure, but it's such a go-kart when it comes to the twisties...love it. Gets great mileage for something that's so fast.

This is truly the Ultimate Driving Machine. I have an SMG transmission which allows you to shift manually with automatic clutching. I have the control of the manual with no clutching hassles! With the Sports mode on, the car gives an amazing feel. The engine sound and in the gut acceleration really gets the juices flowing. The steering is responsive and the suspension tight; this is not a touring sedan. I test drove the Z3 before buying this, and this car feels and drive very differently. It is a lot more powerful and "manly". When I look at it from the front it reminds of a shark & the Z4 rules the road like one. BMW leases are not expensive; get a Z4. Money well spent.

I fell in love with this car at the dealer. It was love at first sight. I went to look at the practical 330xi. I had a 5 series for my last 2 cars and thought I wanted the sporty 3 series with all wheel drive for the mountains of NC. I saw the Z4 and had visions of a jet fighter. It just looks so awesome to me. Well the test drive was even more impresive, I had to have one. The car is so great that we drove it to key west on our vacation rather than flying. It was so cool.

This is a fantastic little rocket! It goes fast and stops quickly. The steering takes practice - Occasionally when driving over uneven road surfaces the car will pull left or right. So, it's best to keep a tight grip on this "race ready" cat. That will keep it from going astray.

I think the z4 is a great little car for the weekend. Fun, fast and gets great looks from others -- but does not break your bank account doing it.

Great at first, then....

I bought the Z4 as what seemed like a natural upgrade from my Z3. I paid a premium to own this car, based on it's stellar styling and improvements, such as the fully auto top and glass rear window. However after owning it for the first 6 months, it began to annoy me to no end. It's horribly uncomfortable. From the unsupportive seats, the exaggerated door interior door handles that chafe my left leg every time I shift, to the un-adjustable seat belt that chokes me every time I drive. Plus the 1/4' inch clearance from the dash to my right knee, and I'm only 6'1! Add an ultra-harsh ride, and I feel like I'm in a torture chamber each time I get in. I wish I had kept the z3.

Have had the car 6 mobnths and love it more every time i drive it. Heads turn and I continually get tons of compliments. Currently, I avaerage 24 MPG, not bad for a sports car! The dealership has been very accomodating for appointments and any repairs. I took the car on a 600 mile trip and was able to pack the trunk with 3 duffle bags, and a lot of other things. I was amazed how much the trunk held. I highly reccommend this car! It's wonderful!

Should have kept the Z3

I love the look of the car but it didn't drive as well as the Z3 and not as roomy as my Audi TT. Z4 has a lot of power and fun to drive, but wish I had my Z3 back.

Z4 was the worst car i have ever owned.

I bought my car brand new with 6 miles on it. Ive had it a year and has 11,000 miles on it now. I had to bring it to the show 8 times. The instrument cluster needed replacing twice. The passenger side power seat went out. The gas cap lid cover fell off at the gas station. The passenger side window fell out. The dealer would not take it back. BMW America would not do anything, but they "made a note of it" In 2003, the domestic cars had less complaints then the european cars. Makes you wonder why. I should have bought a cadallac.

Best car!

I've had my Z4 for about a month now. Got all the options - Performance & Sport packages, Steptronic, heated seats. A little pricy, but lots of fun. The car drives extremely well and will behave as reserved as you want it to when in normal mode, but transforms into a real tiger when you push the Sports button or shift the Steptronic into sports drive. There is no comparison to the 2.5, which felt underpowered. It is a little bumpy with the 18" wheels, but not as bad as I had feared. Watch out for pot holes! It does not handle puddles very well (easily hydroplanes). It is a real eye-turner for young and old alike.

Great Z4

Great fun car. Automatic roof is great. Smooth acceleration, nice cruising (though the engine revs a little fast on the highway). I have driven it over 500 miles in a day and was comfortable (6'1", 230). I took a db meter on my test drive, and with the top up it was just a few db higher than my Acura RL.

Absolutely the coolest car to drive. I love the styling and handling, the power and the smooth ride (for the size). I've thrown friends that are 6'3" and 250 lbs in this to drive it and they fit! It truely holds two sets of golf clubs (standard carry bags). Sports package and the 3.0 were perfect upgrades. The big suprise was the gas mileage, about 26 MPG. My 04' Durango gets about half what this does. The only bad thing about driving this vehicle is that you can't see it from the outside when you're behind the wheel.

I live in Philly so in the garage it stays for the winter. If I can't put the top down I'm not drivin it. There is nothing like putting the top down on a cool crisp night and watching the stars roll by as you criuse down the highway.You may not be sold on it's looks but spend some quality time behind the wheel of this puppy and you might just change your tune.It handles like a dream and trust me there's more then enough power to get you into trouble.If you are in the market for a car do yourself a favor and at least take a Z4 for a test drive. You won't regret it!

Locked on cruise control at 125 MPH for 400 miles (Omaha, NE to Fargo, ND). Stopped once for gas and slowed down three times for cops, but made the trip in just under four hours. I don't know how many Z4's were manufactured worldwide for 2003, but I suspect that people will collect these cars 20 years from now.

Although many must disagree, I love the look and handling of this car. It's got plenty of power, as opposed to the jaguar and mercedes convertibles i previously owned. The new lines make it unique. The lack of the idrive makes it the only BMW I have any interest in driving, since I am not a nuclear engineer or software designer, which I assume is a requirement to be able to understand the idrive.

This is a FUN FUN FUN car to drive. The 3.0 engine with the SMG transmission is even more FUN. I truely am enjoying this car and appreciate all the complements on its good looks. I chose the metalic black with red seats and electric top. The Z4 looks fast even standing still. I'm 6'2" and fit very comfortably. The sound system is excellent as is the exhaust system. There is a lot I like about this car and spend a lot of quality time in it. It's not something you see all around town.

Great Drive, especially with the SMG trans. Once you get use to the SMG, you wouldn't want a an auto.,less a 6spd. Needs a better beverage holder and interior storage, especially if you have 6CD in compartment. Had a Audi TT,which was great. This gave me best of both worlds-Speed, fun and a convertable.

The power and handling do not lack, the interior design has all the comforts. When the top is up the car is quiet and tight. BMW really did it right.

This is the car you drive when you leave the kids at home. It looks great, drives superbly and it even makes you 'look' sexier regardless of your age. So, is there anything wrong with the BMW Z4?

This car (black exterior, tan interior, manual, heated seats, convenience, premium) is fantastic. I love the looks of it as does everyone who sees it (I have never seen group of men gather around a Boxter), it regularly attracts crowds. The interior is simple and functional, at 6 foot 2 inches I have plenty of room inside. The engine sound is deep and throaty, it actually gets deliberately transmitted into the seating area. The turning circle is amazingly tight. Steering can be a little jittery on an uneven road surface, but otherwise the car just grips the road around corners. Useable trunk for a small car. Feels smooth at 114 mph, I'm to scared to go faster!

3.0 Great car for the money. Head turner wherever I go. The Olivin Green color is stunning. I have a light leather interior and Beige top. Ironically, that combination is not an option on the BMW web sight. Pleasure to drive, great handling. Love the heated seats,power top,6 speed & 10 speaker stereo. Cup holders are weak-lousy design. Soda cans/cups- condensation drips into elect. window siwtch-not good. Could use a few more ponies 250-275 bhp would be better. Overall very satisified, and would highly recommend.

I recently bought a 2004 Z4, having previously owned a 2001 Z3. The Z4 is a great improvement and is truly a luxury roadster. The automatic top is a breeze to put up and down with it's one button operation. The climate control is like what I am used to on a luxury auto. And the trunk has almost twice the room that I had with my Z3. The interior also seems to be roomier. It's also nice to have a remote door/trunk opener which I did not have on my Z3. While some of the industry analysts have been critical of the exterior design, most people I know use the words "awesome" or "cool" to describe the Z4 whereas the word "cute" seemed to go along with the

I think this vehicle is a fresh new look into B M Ws future,other such vehicles with such ammenties are far more expensive and little on design ie (mazda,miata).I have found it is a really comfortable car plus really peppy on take offs and passing gears.I would suggest this car to any one looking for a fine quality convertable that doesnt want to spend 40k.This vehicle offers plenty of ammenties plus lots of fresh new look.

Superb auto

I owned a Z3 for 3 yrs then trade in for the Z4 in Oct 2002, and I'm totally in love with this Car! even though I would love it to have more performance, (maybe if it were a 3.0 would help, but I got the first Z4 out of the dealer and only 2.5 was available at that time), A lot more confortable than Z3, love the reliability, the design, the futuristic features like rain sensor, automatic lights, etc, that for sure make my life a lot easier, It is definitaly a better version,Handling is sharper and IT'S A LOT OF FUN !!!! (not counting all the looks you get while in it! :)

simply awsome

had the car for 4 months now and I still love driving it like I had it the first day. It is quick off the line, and glues to the pavement around corners. I've looked into the Porche BoxterS and Mercedes SLK320 and I think this is the best buy of the bunch. The 18 inch wheel and stiff suspension may make the ride a bit rough, but it is a small compromise given the overall quality.

amazing!!

This is an awesome car. The Z4 3.0 is fast and fun to drive. It gets great gas mileage, I average 28 mpg. My Z4 is has the sport feature which really makes it get up and go. The GPS is terrific and easy to use. Heated seats are a nice feature, making driving at night with the top down comfortable and cozy. There is ample leg room. When driving and parking it is important to remember that the front is low to the ground and most of the car is in front of you. The front will hit the concrete parking stops and curbs if you are not careful. Overall, the Z4 3.0 is a blast to drive.

A good, fun drive

Love it! Small defects, tho: open glove compartment, everything falls out. Open storage bin between seats, it's so high up you can hardly get to anything. Side door compartments are difficult to reach into. But there's more trunk space now, than the Z3. Glass window in the back instead of plastic. Neat-looking with topdown. Still a blast to drive. Love it!

The Z4 is my first BMW and it the best driving experience I have ever had. The looks grow on you and the uniqueness and rarity of the car draws a lot of attention. I had first intended to buy a Porsche Boxster but the current style is boring and they are very common in my neighborhood.

The best two-seater I have ever owned. Great acceleration, great grip, cornering is a pleasure, it is very safe and the drive is always controlled, the steering is unbelievable, it is very comfortable and it looks great. What else do you need from a sports car? On the downside, I have had several warranty issues, there were material flaws and the repair crews were not always familar with the car and with their own job (e.g. destroying things as they fixed others). Last, my 2 cents: get the SMG (semi- manual gearbox) if you can. It is the best shifting experience I have ever had and far superior to the other alternative of manual shifting.

This is my first convertible bought almost by accident. My mother Sue had one, thus the name. It is red and it is sweet. Just ask anyone passing by as I drive though. It's the only one in town! It handles quickly and smoothly, responding well on any kind of road in any kind of weather.I feel safe in it, enev though it is a convertible. It's size suits me- I rarely need to carry anyone.I don't worry about cargo space- it carries enough groceries home. With the top down I can put on a hat and drive the turnpike without effort. The sound system increases enough so that the wind is not a problem. I'd reccomend this car to any one who wants one and can afford it!

Z4 - no comparison (even to the Z3)

I owned the Z3 for 3 years and upgraded to the Z4 about a year ago. WOW says it all. BMW should pat themselves on the back for this one. The improvements on the interior from the Z3 to the Z4 are incredible and numerous. The exterior is the most obvious change, and that did take a little bit to grow on me - but I love it now. The handling, acceleration, braking, and response of the vehicle are fantastic - the sport button definetly gives it that extra "kick" when you need it. If you never owned a BMW or a roadster, I guarantee you will love it. If you are upgrading from the Z3, you will thank God you did. You will be amazed by all of the compliments you get.

I drove this car to New Orleans right after I bought it. This car stopped traffic on Bourbob Street. People were gawking and taking pictures. When we pulled up to the hotel, people walked across the street to ask about the car. People coming out of the hotel stopped to ask about the car and look at it. I thought the doorman would never have a chance to unload our car. This car still causes a stir wherever I go! WOW!!

I used to own a Z3 2.5 - The differences between the two are night & day. Where the Z3 had a tendency to oversteer easily, this car just sticks. To explore the handling limits, you would have to drive it at a race track. Some people may not like the ride, however. (It can get a bit punishing at times, especially with the 18" wheels). Acceleration is very fast, you don't realize how much faster the 3.0 is until you drive one. The styling is a little strange at first, but it really does grow on you. Not only that, but I think the styling makes it stand out more. As for reliability, I haven't had a single problem.

I love this car. Unbelievable value. Corners phenominally well. Very quick (3.0 is quicker but ?worth extra $7000). Great styling. The top is up and down, not latching, in 8-9 seconds. The top is also lined so the ride is quiet and feels like you're in a hard top when inside. An absolute pleasure to drive.

Almost bought a Boxster but the spaciousness and quality of the interior of the BMW sold me. The Boxster Interior reminded of an old Toyota. I wasn't sure I would like the BMW exterior but have to say it has grown on me and I am happy with the choice. I was looking for a car I could drive long distances comfortably and the BMW fills that need and provides rocket ship performance and handling

Had a Z-3. Nice drive. Z-4 much better. Smoother, handles better, but very spry and responsive. The 2.51 has power enough, very quick. The thick soft top when closed creates a sport coupe like interior rather than a rag top like sound. Highly recommend this car for a fun peppy ride.

This is the most agile and spirited car I have ever driven...and I've driven many. That includes the Honda S2000, which I thought was a poor second to the Z-4. I don't get the raves over the S2000. The cheapest looking interior I had ever seen. I'd have been embarased to have my friends in it. The engine my a touch faster, but the handling didn't even compare. I wonder about you editors every time you rate the S2000 so high. There is MUCH more to a car than just the engine. I'm a designer...the Z-4 has style, and the others all look alike.

I had a chance to test drive all of the roadsters that I can afford(some I can't): SLK(unbelievably noise, rattle, and vague handling. it's not even concider as a relax crusier, it's feels like a boat.), Boxter (is good but too noise and aged styling), S2000 (fun, but not a good daily driver and too noise on the freeway.), Miata(good handling, but feels too light and lack of the sense of safty.)Z4 3.0 (unbeatable performace, but also some 9K more then my 2.5i).

This is my 2nd BMW... as they say, this is THE driving machine. I test drove several other car manufacturer's convertibles... NONE of them thrilled me... but, just driving out of the dealer's lot on the test drive was a thrill. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this car.

You'll Love It

The manual 6 speed with the 3.0 engine gives pick up at high speeds that leaves everyone else behind. If you are boxed in with highway traffic you can get a clear shot from 60 to 80 and the traffic will disappear.

These cars are prone to electrical computer problems relasted to the Idrive system. If you search the Internet you will find hundreds of stories like mine. My Z-4 has stalled out unexpectedly at total of six times. The EML (Engine Malfunction Light)light came on, and I could not get the RPM's up for sufficient power. On 2 occasions this created life threating situations.

I've had my Z4 for 1 week and I'm loving every minute that I sit behind the wheel. I puchased a Jet Black/Black 3.0 with Auto/Sport/Conv/Prem/Heated seats/Xenon and Navigation. I'm very impressed so far. The ride is firm but I expected it to be so. This is not my daily driver so it's not a problem for me. I considered the 350Z, TT, Boxster, SLK, S2000 and even the SC430. This was by far, the best of all worlds. I'm 6'2" and I have plenty of leg and head room in the Z4.

I replaced my motorcycles with this 2004 Z4 and am loving it more with every minute I drive it. Before I purchased this I looked at the 350Z, S2000, TT, SLK, Boxster, SC430 - I much preferred the Z4 as an overall package. Got a Jet Black/Black Interior loaded with NAV, Sport/Conv/Prem/Heated seats/Xenon. Car handles like it's on rails, the suspension is stiff - but exactly what I expected. I really appreciate all the feedback the car provides me - sound, road, steering, power.

Pick up my Z4 3.0 last weekend, all I been doing is driving ..driving ..and driving.. the car is amazing, handling is superb.. much more solid than my 330i. The only complain I have is the trademark BMW "THUMP" when you close the door is gone and the door handle feels cheap like a honda or something.. and the mousetrap sunvisors are not too good when I pay over $45k for the vehicle. But the performance, handling and all the ATTENTION you get with the car is well worth every penny... The more I drive it the more I loved it...

I bought this thing to make my daily 35 mile (each way) commute to work more tolerable and I have to say it sure is incentive to get out of bed in the morning. The acceleration will throw you back in your seat and is very consistent all the way up as far as I have pushed it. Even at 125 it felt like it had a lot left to give. I can't imagine what the 3 liter must be like. The transmision is so smooth that you would hardly notice the shift points unless you are conscioulsy watching the tach for them. Top notch car!

A classic Roadster. Nice improvement over the Z3. Plenty of power with the 2.5 unless you routinely wear a body harness and helmet. Its not a car for your daily commute. The "ideal use" would be short weekend getaways and warm weather cruising. I'm 6' 2" and 235 lbs, the cabin is confined but I feel that my body is supported well. I don't feel stiff and sore upon exiting.

The styling of the car is quite different than what people are used to, but nevertheless the car speaks for itself once driven. It is an amazing driving experience if of course you know what you are doing. The only thing that bothers me sometimes, is how hard the suspension is. I love the sports option on the 3.0i engine included with the sports button. The sports button on the car actually does make a diference. The already tuned engine, gives more power to the tires once the button is pressed.

This is the most fun to drive car I have ever owned. I always feel like a kid again when I am driving the Z4, which is saying a lot for a 59 year old man. The car is very forgiving of any driving errors and its ability to stop is amazing. The style of the car is apparently of some controversy. I can only tell you that I like the style and it grows on you with time. I find that its gets quite a lot attention as I drive.

The car is small, not much more they could do for comfort. For that price more should have been included like Mercedes. We were told BMW's are such great cars they don’t need to include the fluff. I strongly disagree. At that price, heated seats, CD changer, automatic softop, dimmer light, car mats should ALL BE INCLUDED. Customer service-lousy. The car is gone as soon as the fun wares off. My daughter drives a ercedes and we are having second thoughts. If you want fun, go for it. If you want comfort, class, fluff, and great customer service: Look elsewhere.

This ia a very fun car. I opted for the 2.5 straight 6 and am quite pleased with its acceleration. At higher speeds the engine stresses but only slightly. If you are planning on doing excessive high speed driving, I think the 3.0 is the only way to go. The difference in cost between the 2.5 & the 3.0 is substantial, so it's important you really know what you want from your car. The feel is strong and safe. Extremely well built car. I would buy another without second thoughts.

Prior owner of a Z3 which was also a great automobile. However the ergonomic improvements from the top to the trunk including the handling capabilities make the Z4 a solid improvement over the Z3. I loved the classic look of the Z3. The Z4's more modern look is starting to grow on me. I have not seen anything in the Z4's price range that I like better.

Overall, the Z4 is a nice car. The problem is tha run flat tires. They have a tread wear rating of 140 which translates about 15,000 miles. It will cost in excess of $1,000 to replace them. They cannot be repaired if punctured and they cannot be found in stock at any Bridgestone dealer I know of and they can only be replaced by a run flat certified dealer. The tires are not warrented by BMW so you are pretty much on your on. A tire problem on the road will probably result in a delay of several days.All of this so BMW could leave off the spare.

Had a Z3, but was hesitant to buy the new Z4. Well, I should have. The new rear suspension makes the Z4 an entirely different car. The ride is smooth, tight. The new glass rear window contributes to a very quiet ride. The automatic top is a must, and the built in tonneau cover is great. 5 speed is a little slow off the line, not lots of low end tourque, but once you hit the open road, pure delight. Trunk space is a massive 9 cu ft, awesome for a two seat roadster. There is enough room for a golf bag and luggage for those weekend getaway's. I would highly recommend - Enjoy!

My Z4 (3.0i) brings smiles to my face with each drive. With the exception of a harsh ride (hey its a sports car), it is very comfortable to just cruise around in with the top down. But it really shines when you get into the curves. This thing sticks to the road like nothing I've driven before, with the exception of the C5 Vette. Good steering feel, great handling, more than enough power, and pleny of torque at lower RPMs make this one helluva sports car. And while the styling hasn't exactally been lauded by the critics, I absolutely love it; the way the sun plays off its many creases gives it a new look each time you see it.

I've been extreamly happy with my purchase and would do it again in a heartbeat. The car is too much fun to drive. If you're seriously considering buying one, be warned of a few things: it has a stiff suspension, it only fits two people and a moderate amount of lugage, and some people hate the looks. If you say "that's the way its supposed to be", then you know this car is for you. If these things irritate you, consider another car. If you think the HP numbers are too low, give it a good test drive. 0-60 in 7, top speed 140 is pretty good for 184 ponies. Be warned: the car is addictive.

Who'd ever thought a car can renew the excitement you get from driving. Everyday, it seems like I try to come up with an excuse to drive my Z4. It handles like a dream and accelerates like a rocket. I looked at a S2000, but the Z4 has so much more room, especially in the trunk.

We have owned three BMW's in the 300 series all convertibles, in the last 10 years. With each model, improvements were significant, as far as comfort, design, driving ease. The last model was a 330 csi which to us was the best of the lot.After driving the 330csi for the last three years, it was time for a new Beamer. After much family discussion, we decided to try the Z4. It is truly a finely made roadster. The Z4 drives and handles just fantastic, and the auto/manual transmission is a blast. It's a fun car to operate. Test drive this spirited Z4, and you'll know why we have fallen in love with it.

The Z4 has excellent turning ability, and hugs the road on challenging turns. I have a 2.5L and it feels like it has as much power as the 3 series with a 3.0 engine. The gas mileage is great 24 - 30 MPG. It handles well in rain, and on slippery surfaces, and climbs mountain roads easily. The trunk does hold golf clubs! On a road trip, it held two suitcases, plus biking gear and duffle bags with the top down. The challenges are: The front air dam is low to the ground (parking median); The cup holders will not hold a "big gulp" or tall glass bottle; and with the top up, you will rely exclusively on your side and rear mirrors.

I loooove my first but not last BMW.

It's so exciting to sit in -- much less drive! My only complaint is that with the top up there is too many blind spots when driving and backing up! Not quite enough power immediately upon take off - should have gotten the 3.0! Other than that, it's flawless!

good looking and powerful

After owning BMW for many years, the Z4 3.0 was the first that convince me to get a two seater, It doesnt feel "small" at all. I love the looks, may be controversial because is a bit ahead. The trunk space is better than the M3 convertible and the 328iC.Very fun to drive (I have the 6 speed manual) and the sound of the engine is perfect!

Sorry to say, but my Z4 performs hot, but is uncomfortable, and rattles like a crib toy. The trunk is so small that literally it won't hold a golf bag. The Z4 looks good, and drives well, but for 45 grand it should be more comfortable and not rattle and squeek.

I sold a Porsche 996 to buy a z4

As with all BMW's quality is tops with the Z4 roadster. It's a fun ride, very responsive maneuvering, and it's speed is impressive. This is not a car, it's a machine.

There is nothing like dropping the top on a brisk fall day and hitting the highway. I love the sound of the engine as I shift the gears.

3.0 Z4 is the best of the roadsters

I recently drove every roadster under $60,000, including the Boxter, Nissan Z, Honda, etc. Without qualification, the BMW is the superior all-around car- pure fun, great power, superb quality, and I- unlike the magazine critics- love the style. So do lots of other people, as I've gotten great reaction when driving. No other two-seater in its class has the total package- & plenty of trunk space for groceries. BMW picks up the service for 4 years! This is the most fun car I have ever had.

After eight months and 5100 miles I still love this car! Despite conflicting reviews, the styling is the reason I bought it (I watched "Hostage" at BMWfilms.com and was immediately hooked). Fully loaded (except nav.), I recently added a hardtop and winter tires/wheels. I upgraded to the 3.0i with the sport package because I liked the wheels better. Wood interior trim is classier than aluminum. This is my first BMW, but definately not my last!

Fun, turns heads, clean look inside with the creature comforts you'd expect from a $40K car and BMW. The ride is like a sports car, you feel the road but that's what I was looking for. The engine sounds deep and smooth and will get you up to the speed limit fast enough for most commuters. The top goes down fast (10 sec) with little wind at speed.

awesome!

The Z4 is pure fun. This car is highly responsivee, handles well at all speeds, and is smooth riding. The sport package adds to the experience. The powertop drops in 10 seconds, and you can lower it while stopped at a traffic light. I have owned this car for 7 months. It has been an exceptionally pleasing purchase.

LOVE THE BMW Z4

I am 16 years old and my daddy bought me this car on the 14th of October. I absolutly love my car, and so does everyone else. My only problem is the amount of space in the car, yet it isn't enough of an issue to tarnish the way I feel about my car. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a well made, sporty car.

I was sold on the Z4 with my test drive! I opted for the five-speed automatic, which has been a perfect choice for someone who wants to have fun, but doesn't want the hassle of a clutch, especially in traffic. It is quick, responsive, and takes corners better than our 2000 Porsche Cabriolet.

Gorgeous? Yes. Ugly? Maybe Different? Yes. Eye catching? Yes. Powerful? Y E S !!! The Z4 isn't a car made to appeal to everyone's taste in cars. Only those who can appreciate the performance and beauty of a BMW. This is a car that has fluid lines (though some are kind of "out there"), moves gracefully, and looks like nothing else out there. It also, when hammered, carves the road like a brand new scalpel. The exhaust note is orgasmic and the power seems endless. I have a 3.0 Z4 but I drove the 2.5 and even though the 3.0 has a more powerful engine, the 2.5 drove like it would have no problems keeping up.

I have the v-6, the car is a great car for performance and power, however, the car does burn a hell of lot of gas, but then again, when you pay over 42000, for a sports car, you can't complain too much about gas. The car is extremely fun to drive and I love the automatic top that you don t have to latch yourself.

This was a loaner. I drove the heck out of it. It corners like on rails. Acceleration was smooth. Never oncehydroplaned in rain. The most ironic thing is that the car got hit on: at the gas station, at the grocery store, at the ofcie supply place. My only complaint as it got pushed around by the wind from Semis when you drive at above 80MPH. But it gets stared a and is a blast to drive.

This is a wonderful car to drive. The 2.5 is a little sluggish from the line but makes up for this with impressive high speed power on the highway and in the turns. The car is an attention getter. The top works well and quickly. The paint job on this car leaves a little to be desired. This is a $40k with features, but it has the paint job of a car costing about $10k. This car scratches easily. It requires copious amounts of wax to cover these imperfections.

I had previously leased a 2001 Z3 Roadster because I wasn't sure if I wanted to own the BMW. I loved the Z3 and at the close of the lease I went to the dealer to purchase it. In 2 years I had driven 42000 miles and loved every mile. Well I test drove the Z4 and decided to purchase the 2003 Z4. So far I am not sorry.
