Review

I am a big man at 6'3" and 260 lb with arthritis and that is why I am letting this car go. It is very difficult for me getting in/out of the very low seats with the top up. Once I am in it is reasonably comfortable around town but again on a long drive leg cramps became an issue. I have loved owning and driving this car though because once I am in the seat I feel in total control of the driving experience. The car has exceptional performance if you use the gears correctly and can easily get to 100+ just entering an on ramp. Brakes are superb (typical BMW) and the six speed tranny shifts flawlessly and seems to know your exact movement when shifting. I have never missed a shift. I have changed the oil per the factory recommendation and the battery a couple of times. There have been no other problems other than a flat tire. I replaced the run flats with a performance tire that can be repaired and love the way they hold the road as well as improving the ride. The only drawback to these tires is that I do not have a spare. Oh well.....

Review

I am still in shock after I purchased the 2006 Z4 3.0i fully loaded with winter, comfort and sport packages for around $20,000 with 50k miles on it.
I simply would have to search for a reason why buy anything else - including new, newer, or different model sport cars.

With a push of a button this thing performs as if it had turbo or supercharged engine.

The interior, though not Jaguar comfortable, hugs you tightly and holds you in one place to enjoy the show.

Super tight sport suspension can take almost any corner at mind boggling speeds you can throw at it.

Ditch the "run-flat" tires.
Buy whatever you want at Tirerack.com for less than $500 and your car's shoes are back in order.


Best Features

Sport button, M-seats, 6-speed manual tranny, luxurious burlwood trim, premium sound system, smell of leather all over the car, HUGE 6-cylinder inline engine with a mean growl every time you step on gas pedal.


Worst Features

Stop, absolutely stop referencing "BMW certified repair centers" in your documentation. A huge number of maintenance and repair tasks can be performed by any mechanic with brains. This is the main reason why mediocre part replacements during regularly scheduled maintenance intervals cost $600++, while a competent owner can actually do most of this stuff him/herself or have his/her greasemonkey do it!!! Seriously - if you want to learn to replace an air filter (with mediocre IQ), just Google it!!!

Review

I have owned this car since October 2009. Bought it used with 36k. When I purchased it the channel changer on the stereo was not working. It was still under warranty. The dealership replaced the stereo with a new one. Other minor issues including front brake rotors occurred and the BMW dealership took care of them all at NO CHARGE. The warranty is the best. The car handles like a dream. It certainly is a head turner. I had a minor accident because of a blind spot when you look back to back up . I love this car. It handles like a dream and the dual steptronic transmission is terrific. I am a BMW customer for life. The customer support and service is the best I have dealt with.


Best Features

The synthetic top, BMW service, handling, power, and the sleek look!


Worst Features

As with the other comments, the location of the cup holder stinks and the blind spots when trying to change lanes or back up.
