I was shopping for a sports car and shortly after driving this car I fell in love with it. The handling is amazing and it's got some "get up and go". I will warn you, IT IS A HIGH MAINTENANCE VEHICLE. I bought it 4 months ago with 62k and have had to do 10x as much work as I ever did on my Toyota Tacoma in 2 years. Convertible top doesn't work, Tire sensors were malfunctioning, Turn signal went out, Windshield Wipers malfunctioned, can't jack it up because it is so low, inconvenient access to almost everything, chews up tires because negative camber is set at 3% stock (change to 2% at next alignment )...and still, I am planning to buy a 2009 Z4 because they are THAT FUN! Warning: Chick Magnet.
Handling before I put 20 inch wheels on, Dream Red Leather Interior, Visibility with Top Down
Cup holders, Plastic pieces all over the car fall apart, Make Jack-Point compatible with a 3 inch jack, Stop using Torx bolts on everything, Waterproof/Build convertible top assembly better, No trunk compartment floor, Better tail light design that yellow circle on 2003, Better stock sound system
Fun car when the roof works; after paying all that money for a car that I thought would be fun for years to come I am so disappointed and ready to ditch it ... it looks like its in perfect condition but the roof stopped working once again; just had to have all the windshield rubber and cowel replaced and all the plastics are a joke ...
I like not having a car payment but didn't count on so many costly repairs every time I turn around and the extended warranty barely covers anything; I only have 30,000 miles on it
