2004 BMW Z4 Convertible 3.0i 2dr Roadster (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This little car is a real blast to dirve. I have owned 535s, a new M3, MGB, 442 and numerous fun cars, but none as much fun as this little ragtop. It gives you total feel of the road, which when bumpy perhaps too much. But once again it's a sweet ride. My Z is black with a tan top and while some are critical of the styling, I get lots of "I was admiring your car" and such. The 6 speed is smooth as silk and the 3.0 delivers pleanty of power. I can't wait to test drive the new M series. I can't recommend this car enough to anyone looking for a roadster.And your BMW dealer probably has a demo for you to check out before ordering. Thats what happened to me as a four test drive convinced me.


Favorite Features

Automatic convertible top that gets it done in a few seconds.


Suggested Improvements

Better location for the cruise control lever. It is below the turn signal/High- Low beam lever and difficult to get used to. Steering wheel controls would be much easier to deal with. But this is really my only negative that I have found with my Z4.

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


Review

After owning MGs, Eclipses, and Triumphs, I finally found the one true sports car that "fits". It is reliable, handles like a dream and is truly beautiful to view. I get excellent gas mileage and have the pickup and speed to feel confident, even in the worst traffic. The 3 cubic feet of trunk is enough for my wife and myself to go on weekend trips and she can take ALL her stuff!!! All in all it absolutely meets my needs.


Favorite Features

Styling - can just look at it for hours.


Suggested Improvements

the ability to move the sun visors off the front window to the sides for afternoon sun shade.

Review

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this car. This is the first manual transmission I have ever even tried to drive and after owning this BMW Z4 I will never drive an automatic ever again. Besides the fact that it has superior craftsmanship, great styling, and is a blast to drive I get great gas mileage that really helps with the rise of prices at the pump. My next car will definitely be a BMW!


Favorite Features

Is there anything better than crusing around town in the Ultimate Driving Machine with the top down?


Suggested Improvements

I like how they stepped up the engine in the newer models.

Review

I really love driving this car, it handles like a dream in the sport mode. I really like to shift it with the steptronic transmission, it shifts very smooth. I also like the easy to read gauges at night, the orange dash lights are just cool. I have all the options and packages you can get with this car except for the navigation. I also want Sirius radio which I can get but the trunk mounted antenna just don't work for me. It's a little hard getting in and out of because it is low to the ground but onced you're in and settled you can for hours with the top down and the windscreen in place.


Favorite Features

The steptronic transmission is great and the power it has is unbelieveable. You can get speeding tickets everyday if you're not careful. I look at the speedometer and I'm doing 80 MPH without realizing it. The sound system is fantastic although learning all the functions can be overwhelming.


Suggested Improvements

Make navigation installation possible after purchase. Redesign or improve the Sirius antenna.
