2003 BMW Z4 3.0i 2dr Roadster (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Wasn't in market for car (getting
530i), but took a ride after hearing
about dealer incentives. Car is
addictive; bought it. Very precise and
responsive. Well worth the price paid
(under $39k for loaded vehicle listing
over $47k).

Only problem is dealer; salesman rammed
it with a customer's used car a few
days later (381 miles) when I took it
back for a paint problem. Now dealer
acts like I don't exist. Got an email
into BMW North America to see how they
handle it. Meanwhile having to use own
insurance to get it repaired.


Best Features

shift (throw), sport button, electric roof, heated seats, very tight steering, overall feel


Worst Features

between the seats storage bin door is flimsy, missing built in garage door opener, useless glove box, would like more analog guages, get rid of reset buttons at base between tach and odometer

Review

This car is as close to perfect as I
have ever seen. I previously owned an
Acura TL, one of the "sports sedans",
but nothing can compare to this car!
You don't have to sacrifice much in
the way of comfort and utility for
this much style and performane. Many
say the styling is "controversial",
but it is really the most beautiful
car I have ever seen. Though it only
has 225 hp, my Z4 has beaten Corvettes
with close to 400. I love the
vicious growl of its engine in the
cold morning air. I can't imagine how
a 3000 lb. car with 225 hp can go that
fast. Others cannot even compare to
it. Wonderful BMW. This is the
roadster to
own!


Best Features

Performance, handling, build quality, styling, NAV system... This car has it all!


Worst Features

Fuel economy, pretty good for roadster.

2003 BMW Z4 2.5i 2dr Roadster (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

The z4 is an awesome car. Not only in
its drive and handling, but the cool
factor is through the roof. It's
simply unique in its exterior design,
and stands out beside all other
roadsters out there today. If the
exterior doesn't float your boat, just
go drive one. Its amazingly punchy,
and takes corners with no problem.
Many people who have ridden with me are
amazed at how you can take a corner
at "excessive" speeds, without it
jarring them into their side door.


Best Features

The convertible top goes up and down super quick. Also, the sport package rocks, with a sport button that gives you better response and quicker accelaration. The inside is also well designed with plenty of leg room even for tall folks, and its also the safest roadters out today.

Review

This is a great car. It is put
together well and very quick with the 5
speed. The steering is quick and
precise and the upgraded stereo sounds
great. The car sounds great, just like
a roadster should. We also have a
Corvette, and the two compliment each
other well. The Z4 looks, feels and
sounds like something out of a Bond
film, whereas the Corvette is like
taking off in a rocket. Highly
recommended.


Best Features

Self sealing windows, large trunk for such a small car, fully automatic top, stereo.


Worst Features

A $39,000 sticker price car should include the items in the convenience pack - self dimming mirrors, trip computer, cargo nets, etc...

Review

I RECENTLY PURCHASED MY Z4 AND I AM
VERY HAPPY WITH THE AUTO. I GIVE HIGH
TO BMW FOR IT'S DESIGN EFFORTS AND
BUILD QUALITY. THE DESIGN IMPRESSES
ME MOST FOR IT'S EYE CATCHING LINES
AND STANCE. IT IS VERY DIFFERNT IN
SOME RESPECTS FROM OTHER AUTO THAT YOU
SEE ON THE ROAD TODAY AND THAT IS WHAT
APPEALED TO ME IN MY SELECTION
PROCESSES.


Best Features

MY FAVORITE FEATURE IS THE AUTO TOP. I SIMPLY LOVE IT AND WOULD NEVER THINK OF PURCHASING AN AUTO WITHOUT IT.


Worst Features

THE AUTO IS A WORK OF ART AS IT IS. MY ONLY CONCERN IS THE GROSS AMOUNT OF BRAKE DUST THAT COLLECTS ON THE WHEELS AFTER A BRIEF TRIP.
