2010 BMW Z4 sDrive30i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
This BMW is finally a testament to BMW's ability to create a driving machine. Roadsters in the present day have become too feminine and superficial. There is no longer a thrill to having a slung-back drop-top coupe to whip you along coastal roads. But with the Z4, this little machine totes you feel as though you are a part of the road. The power is subtle enough for anyone to use as a daily driver, but for those glorious summer days where all you want to feel is wind whipping through your hair and adrenaline rushing through your veins, this car has the ability to do so. A complete lion draped in sheep's fur. Best combo: heated seats, top down, chilly spring afternoon.
Set back chassis, quick roof folding mechanism, not too much power, but not too little either.
Improved throttle response, stiffer suspension, and perhaps a tuned exhaust note! Throw these three into the mix, and you've got an unstoppable roadster!
