2003 BMW Z8 2dr Roadster (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

One of the first off the production line. A silver was firmly in my mind,however when I saw the hot red color on this baby with a black interior, I knew this was my car! No where can you drive without turning heads. From young coeds, males in hot rods to interested observers at the gas pump, it demands attention but does not require frequent stops. Sports car feel, vintage hints to design from the past mixed with the latest technology and mechanics, this car runs! Sit in the drives seat and feel engulfed in a peice of history and the future. Comfortable, with the brute power (almost 400hp) to get the adrenaline surging. Exotic sports car ownership with minimal maintenance. The Z-8!


Best Features

The looks, the feel, and the engulfment of the driver and passanger into an experience to drive. From the sports button releasing the full power, to the smooth shifting of the 6 tight gears and the sound of the horses thrusting the Z-8 along the road are hard to equal. Top off easy for a change.


Worst Features

More convienient placement of cigarette lighter for radar use. Better accessory covers for the top release behind the front seats.

Review

This car is awesome. It is truly a drivable work of art with performance that is almost scary. The Z8 is the best looking car on the road today and at 0-60 in about 4.5 seconds, a car that will blow away nearly everyone else off the road. And while this car is a dream to drive, it is not perfect. The radio/navigation system is too complex. There is a lot of plastic on and in the car (but it looks great). Sure, the speedo and tach are at the center of the dash....and it takes a little getting used to. But once you do, this quirk only adds to its uniqueness.


Best Features

Styling is extremely unique! This cars performance will leave you speechless. The BMW Z8 is a work of art.


Worst Features

Tilt steering, more user-friendly radio/navigation.
