Review of the 2002 BMW Z8

  • If you love fine, rare things, the Z8 is the automotive equivalent of a Gutenberg bible.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful engine, super-sexy styling, limited production will ensure exclusivity.

  • Cons

    Cumbersome on tight roads, Porsche 911 Turbo is faster and cheaper, a plastic rear window.

  • What's New for 2002

    Last year, BMW created an all-new sports car with philosophical and styling elements gleaned from its original 1955 507 roadster. No changes are in store for this year.

Wondercar

Vehicle: 2002 BMW Z8 2dr Roadster (4.9L 8cyl 6M)

I've owned over 50 cars in my life, including some top flight iron. None has ever been the true combination of quality, style, power and fun-to-drive that the Z8 has been. I remember why I bought the car every time I take it out. Absolutely wonderful ride! I get thumbs up, stares and comments whenever I take her out. Great fit and finish, no mechanical problems and my BMW tech's have been wonderful to deal with. The best service anywhere! Gas mileage is OK, essentially 20mpg on the highway and mid-teens around town. I really love this car, but know someday I'll get the bug for something else and then may have to sell/trade the car. They are becoming harder and harder to find.

This car is not just a vehicle, but a extreme thrill riding machine. The performance on the bmw z8 is terrific, swerving around corners, and providing your body with an amazing adrenaline rush every time you slide into this piece of art.

Car is fabulous. I have had Ferraris, Porches, Vipers, Shelby. This is the best.




Not to fast

Fun, but gets very boring, not very fast compared to my 550, original in style though, thats what attracted me to buy it.

I've seen Z8s before, but I finally saw the Alphina version about a week ago. The Z8 was classic sports car for real. Huge wheels look like blades. The only fly in the buttermilk was those center m...

Now I'm faced with a bit of a conundrum... I honestly prefer the styling of the 2001 330i to the 2002. I also know that I could probably have a 2001 in my grubby mitts by September for the standard ...
