2008 BMW Z4 3.0si 2dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

WOW! I replaced the Bridgestons RF (run flat) tires, with Michelin Pilot Sport ASXL. The ride with the sports suspension, improved significantly, and eliminated the jolting, without compromising the handling. As a bonus, it may enable me to use the car year around in Upstate NY, without having to invest in snow tires, and if I can get even close to the projected 40K miles tread life, I will be even happier.


Favorite Features

Engine and brakes.


Suggested Improvements

Give the customer the option of selecting an all season, non RF tire, which will be less expensive to replace, will ride, better, last longer, and my negate the need for snow tires in the cold climates.

2008 BMW Z4 3.0si 2dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

It's actually my first time writing a review on a car, I was looking for a sport cart 8 months ago. My first choice was a Porscha Cayman S with a manual transmission. I am not going to bring back the whole Porscha vs BM discussion but let's say you will have to try the car to know what you really want. I did love the Porscha but couldnt resist to test the Z4. My only concerns about the Z4 was the look and I really didnt like it in the beginning cause all I could find here in Canada was SoftTop Z4. The driving experience of the Z4 3.0Si was magic yes I said it MAGIC. You do feel like you're driving a beast, nervous and everytime you step on the pedal you get the "push" of adrenaline...


Favorite Features

As I said my favorite features in this car is the driving experience, I finally bought the Z4 3.0si Coupe with the Sport package. To be honnest, I never really pressed on that button since I got enough sport feeling just by driving it. One of my favorite features is the wheel response. When you turn, YOU turn and control it is.


Suggested Improvements

My only concern about this car and I believe they mostly changed few things in the newer model was the cup holder. Funny enough of everything in this car that pissed me off is the quality of those. They really break easily and feel/like cheap. Samething of DVD box, kind of useless since we wont change the disc. They could of hide it somewhere else and juste make more space. Another improvement, my HID Lights, doesnt fit with the fog light. It's funny to have the bright WHITEpurplish HID light and when you open your fog yellowish light...no fit.

2008 BMW Z4 3.0si 2dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I purchased the coupe off the showroom floor with the sports suspension package. The roads in Northern Illinois are not the best so my wife refers to the Z4 as "the donkey cart". Regardless it is a blast to drive and I get many compliments on its appearance. The dealer experience has been outstanding.


Favorite Features

Handling is fantastic and the short braking distance is amazing.


Suggested Improvements

The only issue I have is the low height of the armrest but I solved that issue with an after market add on.

2008 BMW Z4 3.0i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I just recently purchased this car. And oh what a car it is. The handling on the Z4 is amazing, not to mention it's one sexy car. Options that are musts are the leather for easier clean-up with a convertible, the premium package with the auto top, as well as the heated seats so that you can take advantage of the top down on cooler nights. Don't waste your money on the upgraded speaker system. The one it has is amazing! My husband is 6'3" and has plenty of headroom. However it is a little cumbersome to get out of compared to a normal car. But hey, you are driving a sports machine who cares right!


Favorite Features

Headroom for taller folk, great surround sound speakers with awesome base, great handling. great get up-and-go and a very sleek and attention-grabbing interior/exterior. Trunk space is also great for a small convertible.


Suggested Improvements

Although I am not a person sold on power, for the money I would expect even the base model to have a little bit more hp. The automatic (I know... an auto in a sportscar) has this hesitation before it goes.

Review

The standard suspension may be the better choice for most people. I have only 300 miles on the manual transmission coupe, and really enjoy it, but I will install all season ties when I have to replace the OE tires. This may soften the ride and extend the time you can drive the car in the Northeast before installing snow tries.


Favorite Features

smooth


Suggested Improvements

Too early to tell.
