BMW Z4 instant classic

2009 BMW Z4 sDrive30i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Having loved my first roadster, a 2000 Z3 I was disappointed by the style changes with the first Z4. The 2009 Z4 brings back the beautiful lines with several improvements. The car fits like a glove, handles with incredible accuracy, and for the most part gives you the best of both a convertible and a comfortable sedan. This is my third roadster (also 2003 Boxster). Car came with sport shift paddles (I still don't get). Would have preferred a manual. The 3.0 automatic had plenty of power to match my driving style and I actually preferred to the 3.5. Bottom line, this is a gorgeous car that is a blast to drive.
Retractable hardtop, triple-blink turn indicator, convenience package (keyless entry/start), all maintenance covered during lease.
Auto climate control a tad quirky, cupholders an afterthought. Minor points for an otherwise flawless beauty.
