2011 BMW Z4 sDrive35i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
After several 3-series coupes this is my first ever roadster. Although inherently impractical, it is much fun to drive - I love the throaty growl and sharp steering turn-in.
Sporty yet upscale styling. Snug and comfortable seats. Premium sound system (which at this price should be standard). Plenty of top-up trunk space for the vehicle's size.
For heaven's sake, make the parking sensors a standard feature! After several weeks of searching I never found a vehicle equipped with the sensors. It is incredibly difficult to gauge distance to curbs and other dreaded obstacles, especially to the front.
