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


Review

This is a fantastic little rocket! It
goes fast and stops quickly. The
steering takes practice -
Occasionally when driving over uneven
road surfaces the car will pull left
or right. So, it's best to keep a
tight grip on this "race ready" cat.
That will keep it from going astray.


Best Features

engine power, handling, shifting, sport package, power roof. car is a dream to drive,!!! Fun getting behind the wheel everyday (purchased 2/04)


Worst Features

huge blind spots in rear corners make it difficult backing out of parking spaces. Whoever placed the cupholders in this car needs help- Both are right in front of the air vents. So, a/c will chill your hot beverages; and heat will warm your iced tea. Please Add: lower back support, an armrest.

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


Review

head turner and heart melter upon sight one becomes a Moses parting freeway obstacles magically as heaven itself appears to join one's motoring revelry commanding everyone around to give way, make room, here comes the fair haired, favored roadster that takes the breath of saints and angels all.


Best Features

sequential manual gearbox - formula 1 type shifter in sport mode, upshift or down, no let up on accelerator needed - it flows ever so smoothly, passing one and all ever so graciously, speedily, gliding by without the slightest hint of haste nor arrogance.


Worst Features

lower back support in seats

I think the z4 is a great little car for the weekend. Fun, fast and gets great looks from others -- but does not break your bank account doing it.

Review

I bought the Z4 as what seemed like a natural
upgrade from my Z3. I paid a premium to own this
car, based on it's stellar styling and improvements,
such as the fully auto top and glass rear window.
However after owning it for the first 6 months, it
began to annoy me to no end. It's horribly
uncomfortable. From the unsupportive seats, the
exaggerated door interior door handles that chafe
my left leg every time I shift, to the un-adjustable
seat belt that chokes me every time I drive. Plus
the 1/4' inch clearance from the dash to
my right knee, and I'm only 6'1! Add an ultra-harsh
ride, and I feel like I'm in a torture chamber each
time I get in. I wish I had kept the z3.


Best Features

I get complements on the car's looks everywhere I go. The automatic roof is a plus. The power delivery is amazing. Short-throw shifter on 6- speed manual is one of the best I've ever used.


Worst Features

See ergonomic complaints above. The cup holders are a joke-- non-functional and broke once already. The top rattles in the down position, even after BMW "fixed" it 3 times. Steering feel is too light-- sport mode is silly and doesn't help much.

Review

Have had the car 6 mobnths and love it
more every time i drive it. Heads
turn and I continually get tons of
compliments. Currently, I avaerage 24
MPG, not bad for a sports car! The
dealership has been very accomodating
for appointments and any repairs. I
took the car on a 600 mile trip and was
able to pack the trunk with 3 duffle
bags, and a lot of other things. I was
amazed how much the trunk held. I
highly reccommend this car! It's
wonderful!
