I tried the Z-3, and found it bland in
styling, a tight fit physically, and
short on some of the features I wanted
in a sports car. The Z-4 responds to
all of these issues: it is eye-
catching, easy and comfortable on all
kinds of roads and for long distance
touring, and has an up-to-date set of
power accessories, GPS, sound system,
etc. It is a car for those who enjoy
interacting with their machine.
The SMG 6-speed transmission is a joy
to use. The alternative of using
steering wheel paddles or the normal
shift lever allows anyone to rapidly
get the most out of the vehicle.
The broad torque range of the engine in
higher gears, adds to the joy of
Needs more "incidental" storage space
inside the cabin - the glove box is too
small, and there is no room behind the
seats for holding small packages, etc.
