2006 BMW M 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Purchased this car used as a fun car/daily driver on nice days. The performance is incredible. I find that the engine is a little different than older BMW inline-6 in that you have to rev it for power. The exterior has a love it or hate it design but it must be seen in person to render a final opinion. The additional touches that the M car adds to the Z4 (front & rear valence, bigger wheels, quad- exhausts) go a long way to add some aggression to the design. The interior is very comfortable but I have a slim build. Interior design is top notch with the optional carbon leather trim. Bottom line, this is a pure driver's car, those looking for a plush riding luxury car need not apply.

Great car with a few faults

Review

This car was a spur of the moment purchase for me. Originally was going to buy a Boxster but this was a better deal. I took the car to performance driving school even before I got the license plates. This car handles amazing!!! Mine is Interlagos Blue/Black and fully loaded. It is flashy but living in Houston Z4s are common so it appears more low key. This car is a true sports car with handling that can blow your mind. Mine is a daily driver so my gripes are lack of trunk space, but I knew that going in. Depreciation is a killer... I got this car at half of what it originally cost in 06. Great deal for me and puts a smile on my face every time I hear the deep roar of the exhaust.

The honeymoon isn't over yet

Review

My wife and I have come back from 3 day trips and continued past the house just because we didn't want to quit driving this car. Average gas mileage is about 21.6. You can get 26 mpg rather easily just by keeping the rpm down around 2500, (boring). Beyond 3000 rpm the sound is kind of like the Teutonic scream you would expect from an 11.5:1 compression ratio engine tuned to deliver more than 100 hp/liter. The ride is firm like a performance car, but very comfortable. Noise is not a problem either. It is noisier than a limo in all the right ways. The wood dash trim improves the interior. The stereo is first rate. It has a dipstick, no run flats, and hydraulic steering. Brilliant!

Worthy competitor to the Boxster S

Review

I have owned cars such as the Honda S2000, Porsche Boxster S, 2001 M Coupe, Subaru WRX, Integra Type R and can honestly say that the BMW Z4 M Roadster is the most exciting car to drive. It doesn't have the balance-poise of a Boxster S but it will make your heart rate shoot up in a flash once you've tried shifting at redline under full throttle. It's not an easy car to drive at first and drivers should be careful at the limit. My main complaints are: 1-Ride quality. Compared to the Boxster S or Cayman S the ride is VERY choppy-bouncy. The chassis does not soak up bumps as well as the Porsche. 2-Build quality. Exterior panel gaps and the interior trim pieces wear out quickly.

The Ultimate "Droptop" Sports Car

Review

The Z4 M Roadster is a true sports car following a long tradition of drop top British sports cars. It has awesome power and incredible handling and always puts a smile on my face when I drive it. This is not an Italian exotic that looks like it should be ready for takeoff from an aircraft carrier's flight deck, but a true traditional fun to drive thrilling sports car. It is my childhood dream come true!

Love the M Roadster

Review

The car is nimble and yet awesomely powerful, it handles the curves like it's on rails. The interior is a tad bit cramped for a large person but is comfortable and does not have that cheap look found in a Corvette. The M roadster draws some attention on the road but not like the glitzy Italian inspired vehicles. It is a true classic sports car for someone who drives a sports car for the sheer love of it.

Great car. Of recent sports cars I've owned this one has the torque/acceleration of my 430 hp '03 Cobra and handling of my Honda S2000.

A man's car

Review

Always wanted to buy an M car. Plus was looking for a 3rd ("fun") car. Voila - the M roadster. Considered the SLK (no stickshift), Boxster (for M money you can only buy the wimped out model with around 240 HP which most mags gloss over), and the Corvette (too common). Looks great in 3-D no matter what mags say. Has presence, menace. A very capable track car with two caveats, easily fixed; i.e. previous gen tires and some brake fade. Ride is not harsh. Interior looks great but the dash feels like it's made of cheap plastic. User friendly controls. No problems in one year of ownership. Takes time to start in sub-freezing temps. Engine is supreme, shifter precise. A man's car.

Awesome Roadster

Review

This is one of the most amazing compact cars available on the market today. Sophisticated computer systems invisibly assist the driver while cornering, hard braking and accelerating. The feeling of safety and security in such a small car is incredible. The premium sound system is amazingly crisp and clear with excellent dynamic range. This vehicle turns heads everywhere - I've never had so many total strangers comment about the car. Be prepared to draw attention!

Review

Hi - BMW has finally decided to take my Z4 M Roadster back. Had it since April on a lease and had been in at the dealership 15 odd times till August 28. Had multiple problems including: 1) Squeaks when the roof was down and when they fixed this 2) squeaks when the roof was up on the drivers side and when that was fixed 3) squeaks on the passenger side and when they fixed that 4) rattle in the a/c vents and when they fixed this 5) the windows would not close when the roof was put up unless I opened each door, did the window up and then shut the door and they changed the on-board computer and guess what - the windows still did not close!! It spent at least 4 weeks at the shop in 5 months!!
