2006 BMW M 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The Z4 M Roadster is a true sports car following a long tradition of drop top British sports cars. It has awesome power and incredible handling and always puts a smile on my face when I drive it. This is not an Italian exotic that looks like it should be ready for takeoff from an aircraft carrier's flight deck, but a true traditional fun to drive thrilling sports car. It is my childhood dream come true!


Best Features

Just the pleasure of driving it.


Worst Features

Maybe a little better gas mileage so I don't feel guilty!

2006 BMW M 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The car is nimble and yet awesomely powerful, it handles the curves like it's on rails. The interior is a tad bit cramped for a large person but is comfortable and does not have that cheap look found in a Corvette. The M roadster draws some attention on the road but not like the glitzy Italian inspired vehicles. It is a true classic sports car for someone who drives a sports car for the sheer love of it.


Best Features

The engine, is awesome, smooth and powerful. It wants to be driven. The classic sports car look.


Worst Features

Figure out a way to improve gas mileage from 25 MPG highway to 28 MPG to match the Boxster. After all we must all think green.

2006 BMW M 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

My Z4 M Coupe replaces an aftermarket supercharged Z3. 1 HP per 10 Lbs was a requirement. I use it as my daily driver, except when there is ice or snow. The performance is genuinely gratifying. Life is short, and acceleration makes mine most happy. This car also turns and stops with precision. The styling of the coupe is, in my eye and that of my spouse, much more appealing than the Z4 convertible, or of the Porsche alternatives. Frankly, the only thing that came close, was a Lotus Elise - but it was simply impractical as a daily driver. I bought and drive this car because it makes me smile every single time.


Best Features

Horespower and torque - need I say more On hills, the brake remains engaged for half a second as your foot moves to the accelerator - a nice touch.


Worst Features

Can't think of anything that needs to be improved.

2006 BMW M 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Great car. Of recent sports cars I've owned this one has the torque/acceleration of my 430 hp '03 Cobra and handling of my Honda S2000.


Best Features

Super high revving motor.


Worst Features

The navigation system is cumbersome to use, but hey this car isn't for business trips in unfamiliar territory

2006 BMW M 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Always wanted to buy an M car. Plus was looking for a 3rd ("fun") car. Voila - the M roadster. Considered the SLK (no stickshift), Boxster (for M money you can only buy the wimped out model with around 240 HP which most mags gloss over), and the Corvette (too common). Looks great in 3-D no matter what mags say. Has presence, menace. A very capable track car with two caveats, easily fixed; i.e. previous gen tires and some brake fade. Ride is not harsh. Interior looks great but the dash feels like it's made of cheap plastic. User friendly controls. No problems in one year of ownership. Takes time to start in sub-freezing temps. Engine is supreme, shifter precise. A man's car.


Worst Features

Softer plastics. Low effort shifter. Better tires and fade free brakes.
