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

Review

Look at a photo - you'll hate it. Go see one in the "flesh". Hmmm . . . that looks different somehow. A few days later . . . I gotta have one. Test drive it (forget the 2.5 litre). Did you once have a go-cart? Then that seat of the pants feeling all comes right back. This thing stick to the pavement like velcro and runs up to 60 faster than the factory claims. Sure, you feel ever rut in the road, but is that bad? Downsides? Well the glove box is just that . . just enough room for gloves. Interior storage . . . what's that? Will your wife/girlfriend hate it? Yes. Is that bad? Not always.

Truely AMAZING!

This car is out of this world!The looks are amazing, so different and outragous when compared with the boring, old, Porsche Boxster which I tested and thought was no where near as good. The engine is so powerful and flexble.The noise of the engine is intoxicating. Mines black, black interior with 18 inch star wheels. Got every option availible.The amount of complements I get is unbelivable, I also get alot of jealousy as people look in envy of a 21 year old in such a HOT car. If your lucky enough to be able to own 1 forget about EVERTHING else! There really is no competition and i've tested them all.

Review

This is my first bmw and i now understand the 'ultimate driving machine' tag. It isn't just marketing hype. This car is an amazing drive. No sway, great acceleration, both off the line and at speed. I wasn't sure how the exterior lines would sit with me over time, but having owned it about 9 months now, they don't seem as radical as they did at first impression. All in all, I'm having a ball driving the Z4 and haven't once regretted buying the 3.0 version.

A big step up from the Z3

Review

The dealership gave me a Z3 to drive until my Z4 came in, and once it did arrive, I noticed a huge difference in both performance and ergonomics. For one, BMW adjusted the front windshield, removing the blind spots on either side that were a constant nuisance with the Z3. Another upgrade is the addition of a storage space that is positioned between the driver's and passenger's seats -- perfect for storing CDs. Two suggestions: one, get the heated seats, you can crank those babies up and still put the top down when its below 60 degrees out; two, get the electronically adustable seats -- I didn't and really wish I did.

THIS IS THE ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE!

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!

2003 Z4 - great , Dealer sucks

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.

Pure Roadster Experience

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

Review

A great car to drive and to maintain. Every feature is of high quality and reliable. The design is classic and will be as sought after twenty years from now just as the 50s Mercedes SL 190 is today. The SMG (semi-manual gearbox) adds substantially to the driving experience. The car is far superior to the Audi TT (the slowest roadster ever) and the SLK. Comparable are the Boxster S and the AMG SLK, but both are quite a bit more expensive. Thus BMW gives you the by far best deal for your money. As an advice, do not save on the extras and get as many as you can. You will appreciate it later and every time ou get into your roadster.

Immediate Gratification

Review

Traded up from a Mazda RX8. What a noticable difference in performance and handling. SMG performance is outstanding as is the acceleration in all gears. Auto top is quick and effortless. Gas mileage is averaging 27- 28 mpg! Fit and finish immaculate with no noted faults or defects. Wife loves driving it and likes the electronic seat adjustments and looks of car. Immediate gratification for the senses!

Z4 3.0 6spd.

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

Review

The fun factor is a 10+. Very unique design all around which will get some raves as well as some critisism. I personally love it. Performance is very good. I would like to see a little more power. It handles excellent. The ride is a little bumpy but that's to be expected, especially with the run flat tires. Interior is roomy and comfortable. I'm 6'2" and I dont even have the seat all the way back. Interior design is very simple and the aluminum dash is very stylish. I would like to see an oil presure and altmeter guage though.
