Pros Great jaw dropping style, excelent sport performance, luxury of BMW ammenities, Hard top is very nice
Cons Cup holders are stupidly small and poorly located. I often spill my drink trying to get to it. The optional attachable cup holder is a better postion but it take some leg room away from passenger and it too is stupid small in diameter. Cant fit a large
Summary For around 60k$ you really do get the best sports, luxury, style, 2 seat convertible on the market. I rec you get the 35i vs the 30s. THe 35i twin turbo makes a big noticilbe performance upgrade to give you a great sports enthusiast feel for a convertible. The few thousand $ is well worth the performance improvment and overall enjoyment of the car. The 0-60 speeds are exilharing as is the handling. The look and style is jaw dropping. This car is noticed far away and gets a lot of attention. The hard top is a huge plus. When the top is up you forget you are driving a converitble, you feel like your in a sedan, very little road noise, very secure feel in the cabin, normal views out the back window and side rear windows, no ""converitble" blind spots. Putting the top up or down while in public is also a huge show stopper, watching the top go up or down is "transformer" like with the panels moving around. The cabin is very spacious with driver and passanger having a lot of arm and leg room and passanger able to recline the seat somewhat (given no back seats) by moving seat toward dash and then reclining back some (wife able to take a nap as a passenger). Comfortalbe seats and suspension on long trips, no back aches or butt aches after getting out of car. Upgrade audio system is good, not great (dont think there is a subwoffer?), ipod and usb options are easy to use when driving and a nice touch. There are faster or more luxurious cars on the market in this price range but you cant get the combo off all of it put together as nicely as the z4 is packaged. It is a show stopping sexy, fun car.
Pros BMW finally got this car right after the 2nd gen car ruined (IMO) the original line of the Z3. The new Z4 is solid and I love. I oculd not stop grinning. The top is a technological marvel.
Cons Storgae space but if you need space buy a 3 series.
Summary If you don't like this car you haven't driven it.
"LOVE my new car!"on by MzLiberty
Pros This car is so much fun to drive! The handling is great. I took mine to the track for the first time last week and had a blast. Everyone looks at me when I'm driving around. They are all smiling, just like me!
Cons The only cons are some optional features that didn't come in mine.
Summary Totally worth the payments!
Pros Sport options, engine power, agility, physical appearance, hard top is a huge bonus
Cons The only design issue relates to the cup holders being inside the middle console, This issue can be overcome by adding the option cup holder that has a port already installed on the passenger side of the middle console. Works for me!
Summary This is my third BMW purchase. Two of those cars were Z-4 models. I have had nothing but positive experiences both in performance and in service. It's all good!
Pros Beautiful Beautiful lines; Much improved over the overdone original Z4; Romping power; DC tranny is the best of both worlds (manual/auto); Manual clutch drivers in heavy stop-n-go know what I mean. Amazing cabin tech (excluding iDrive of course!)
Cons It's lost the spirit of the Z3 M Roadster. It's heavy, big, long, and tall. It's overdone in monument to overdoneness. The M was a classic Euro roadster, simple beautiful lines, gauges, and interior. You have to buy a MINI to get that now.
Summary I'm conflicted. I'm keeping my M Roadster but lusting over the new Z4. I'm buying it ASAP. My M Roadster will be garaged and saved until the day it to becomes a long lost classic, driven occasionally for the moments I'm feeling nostalgic. Hopefully, I'll sell it for millions on the lawns of Pebble Beach (Ok, one can dream)!
BMW built a beautiful car with the Z4, leaving forever behind the days of the classic european roadster. The technology under the hood and in the cabin makes this car a techno lovers dream. There's more than enough stuff to impress your friends.
The Z3 had the classic roadster lines. The original Z4 was a horribly tortured design. I could never get over the excessively curvaceous trunk lid. The best way to describe flame surfacing is flame broiling, it always comes out overdone.
The new Z4 brings back smoothness and flow to the exterior harking back to the classics. There are still just enough tortured lines to remind you it's the follow-up to the original Z4.
Cabin interior brings a sense of luxury to the roadster, further distancing itself from the classics and heading into the territory occupied by the overdone Jaguars and Benzs. The Z4 is growing up. No longer the domain of the roadster lovers, it's now the car for the wealthy urban professional with an image to keep, a symbol of arrival.
The BMW roadster's path is similar to the Mustang. It started out a small nimble car, but Detroit could only improve it by making it longer, wider, taller and heavier.
If only I could have all of the new Z4 packed into the classic M Roadster, I would be in heaven.
