Z4 Coupe 3.0si... so far, so good
By BS06NOVA on
Vehicle
2006 BMW Z4 3.0si 2dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Review
I followed this vehicle since the X Coupe Concept unveiling in Jan '01 and loved the look the moment I saw it. Previously owned a '00 Z3 M Coupe (S52 engine) and would rate the Z4 similarly but with welcome upgrades in chassis stiffness and cabin noise reduction. I-6 is inherently smooth, mechanically sophisticated, and refined but not sleep-inducing. Much better than the M3's S54 which I found to be rough, unappealingly raspy, and difficult to drive smoothly in traffic. Materials quality and fit and finish is fine but doesn't approach VW/Audi. Great steering feel and response. Somewhat heavy but appropriate clutch and shifting.
Favorite Features
Engine performance and refinement is stunning (second only to Porsche) and it's the main reason you buy a BMW. Steering feel and response provides superb cornering and handling. Stereo sound is fairly good, but probably not best in class.
Suggested Improvements
Ingress/egress is somewhat awkward but perhaps part of owning a small, low- slung sports coupe. M-Sport seats are a little narrow and thinly padded even for a skinny guy. Make in-dash CD a six-disc unit; add SD card capability. Door map pockets are so inadequately shallow, why bother?
