2004 BMW Z4 2.5i 2dr Roadster (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Let's face it. People buy cars like this for their fun factor, and perhaps for their "cool" factor as well. The Z4 does a bang-up job of providing both while delivering upwards of 25 mpg. It's a bit of a chore getting in and out, especially for a 6'2" guy like me, but once you're inside it's surprisingly roomy if you lower the seats all the way. The power convertible top works perfectly, and the interior is gorgeous. The ride is stiff, but the car runs and handles fantastically. My only complaint: you have to be careful when parking or you'll scrape the underside of the front cowling.


Best Features

Fun to drive, convertible top, exotic/cool styling that gets lots of "oohs" and "aahs."


Worst Features

Add a couple of inches to the length and make the cockpit just a smidge larger. Raise the whole car another inch or so off the ground. Add some kind of guardrail or bumpers to protect the front end or have a built-in curb sensor. Do something about the cup holders. They're terrible!

Review

I got this car when I finally could afford one and wow it did not disappoint. I got the SMG based transmission and that thing is a total blast. I love the car so much that I am leasing a new 07 Z4 3.0si starting in 2 days! My only gripe is that the Z series is always behind in cool technology that the 3 series has. No siruis radio. Pathetic. It's a very small gripe on a kickin' car!


Best Features

Body shape and driving experience.


Worst Features

Add more of the new technology and put the SMG back into the Z series!

Review

Ok, really... this car gets more looks than YouTube. Every place I go/park, someone comments on it. And, it's all positive, and I couldn't agree more! This is one fun car to drive/have. Come on, face it... it's not a practical car but who cares! If you want practical, buy a sedan. This car reeks of attitude, confidence and carefree fun! Buy it, drive it, baby it, love it... it is well worth it!


Best Features

Everything... speed, handling, sport "button" for the drive out to Palm Springs (the back way), dropping the top while sitting at a red light, good trunk room for a roadster. Hell, it's just one fun car, period.


Worst Features

Kinda hard to read the displays with the top down and the sun shining. Cup holders are the practical German way of giving in to America's obsession with Starbucks - they wouldn't put them in if we didn't demand it. Also, run-flats are expensive and seem to wear out quickly.

Review

This car is great. It is the most fun someone can have driving. Pop the car into sport mode and you're gone. The car moves with a single touch, there is no lag what so ever. The only negatives are its small size (but you already know that) though a spacious trunk for the size of car, and the car isn't the most comfortable thing for trips longer than 2 hours. I would highly recommend this car to anyone who wants a fun car. It is not the best family car but strap in and hit some open road and try not to smile. You can't help but love it.


Best Features

The engine in this car just roars, it's tough to pick somthing sexier then the vrooming of the engine!


Worst Features

Had a few problems with the convertible top, nothing really to change.

Review

I have enjoyed everything about this car. The top goes down in 7 seconds and the two 12-inch subwoofers make music to my ears. Handling and overall features are superb.
