2003 BMW Z4 2.5i 2dr Roadster (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
I've had this car for two years. I bought it for my 50-something wife and she loves it. She also lets me drive it quite a bit. Living in So Cal, winter days and summer evenings are perfect with the top down. One of the few small roadsters that looks good with the top up - much better looking that the Nissan Z, Boxster, or Honda 2000. It's also the only one my size 6'3", 240 lbs can drive comfortably, although it's a bit tought getting in and out with the top up. It just had its 15000 mile service and the only trouble so far has been one side marker light that went out.
Great handling. Engine and trans are perfectly matched. This is hands down, the best handling and most fun car to drive that I've ever owned.
Little more room for big guys, better cup holders, somehow make the front end so it doesn't scrape at every dip and parking bumper strip.
