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

Review

Those who owned the car and sold it are fortunate. Bought mine in 08 with 99K miles but dealer maintained. It was a fair weather driver and what a mistake. The car now has 104K miles and I've spent some $15K in repairs. Things like water pump, oil pump, alternator, motor mounts, numerous sensors and of course the top. I've replaced the hydraulic pump twice and the side pistons once. I've spent some $5000 just on the hydraulics. It seems the car is notorious for having leaks in the vaccum hose system. The cup holders never worked, and I just let that pass. It's almost as though I can expect a $500 repair each time I drive it. Not what I bargained for.

Favorite Features

I like the body style but after what I have invested there is not much else.

Suggested Improvements

The car is 10 years old and BMW has moved on to the hardtop convertibles. There is nothing to suggest for these E85s.

You bought a european sports car with 100k miles on it and you're upset because you had to repair it? That's kind of silly.
