2007 BMW Z4 Convertible 3.0si 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Started with a 2.3 Z3, moved to 3.0 Z3 and now 3.0si Z4. This is the best one so far. Took me a few years to warm to the styling but now suddenly it clicked. The chassis is exceptionally stiff - as stiff as the Z3 coupe was. Makes a huge difference. The car feels of one piece and there are no rattles or creaks. Huge storage space in the trunk (for a 2 seater), excellent gas mileage, very powerful engine. A pleasure to drive.


Favorite Features

Hill holder. This feature needs to be standard in all manuals. It's THE feature that helped my wife get comfortable with driving a stick-shift. Now she loves to drive the car. The one-touch button for top operation is great. Fast and easy. Glass rear window. Extended leather!


Suggested Improvements

Make 17" wheels an option with sport package. Make RFTs optional as well. Reverse mirror tilt should be a part of the package.

2007 BMW Z4 Convertible 3.0si 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

A good 2nd car for fun in the sun, with great looks and handling, but not a suitable replacement for my 2000 540i. The wind noise on the highway and comfort on bumpy roads is not very good, so consider this for daily travel. More of a weekend "lets have fun" car. Personally I think our 2003 Z4's 5-speed shifted smoother and quicker and its ride was not so harsh (as I recall), so I'm a bit disappointed by this 2007 Z4. The 6-speed shifting bothers me the most, since I do a lot of it! (Oh well.)


Favorite Features

Handling, looks, stereo, smooth engine.


Suggested Improvements

Suspension in non-sport mode should be less harsh, and manual transmission should shift smoother.

Review

The car does what you'd expect... great acceleration, exhaust note, handling. When driven with the top up on those not-so-perfect days, there are a few rattles in the roof/seats. It's not as fast as a Vette off the line, but the seats are exceptionally comfortable, the THX stereo sounds awesome, and the nimble handling make it all worth while in the end. However, if you plan to do most of your driving with the top up or in the winter months don't bother!


Favorite Features

3.0si engine, handling, stereo.


Suggested Improvements

Fix those roof rattles for the rainy days.

Review

I leased a 2007 BMW Z4 3.0si to use as a daily driver, as my wife drives our 2006 Land Cruiser. It did not take long to realize that this car is for weekends only! It is cramped and the ride over older roads will knock fillings out of your mouth! That said, it is a great sports car. The handling, transmission, and power are great. It is an absolutlely fun car in the cool of the morning or for a romantic drive in the evening, but it is not intended to replace a sedan. I am taking the penalty to get the 2008 535i!


Favorite Features

Power, transmission, exterior looks.


Suggested Improvements

Needs better air conditioner. The cup holders look and function as one might expect from a Yugo. Ride is intolerable over rough roads.

Review

What a fun car to drive. Get heated seats no matter where you live. Great feeling when top is down. Get the M seats. The Nav is great today ties in to radio and phone and great maps. Double click remote and you can put top down before entering car. Get the prem package and sport package. Get Xenon lights and hard top prep. Sport button is awesome great driving stability control sytem. Entended leather is awsome. Wanted automatic transmission thus the 3.0si. 265 HP plenty but if you just want manual and 355 HP go for M. It's a fun fun fun car. 0 to 60 in 6 secs. Fast rides great feels great. Heads turn when they see.


Favorite Features

Heated seats, M seats, Nav system, premium sound system, sport button, Steptronic transmission, Xenon lights, convertible top, flat tire monitor, BMW assist, dynamic traction control, wnd deflector, buttons on steering wheel, on board computer.


Suggested Improvements

Lumbar.
