2003 BMW Z4 2.5i 2dr Roadster (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Fewer features than my top of line
Pathfinder, cost about the same, but
much more fun to drive. If the sex
appeal of the Pathfinder is that
of "bloomers in a convent", this is the
neatest "thong in Rio"! Have yet to
drive it somewhere w/o someone
commenting on how 'snazy', cute, sexy
it is! Abs love it!! The friendly
adoration of strangers offsets the open
envy of some male friends!


Best Features

The driving - responsive stick shift Pick's up great, hugs the road tighter at speeds. Readable guages, out of passenger line of sight -need not know the travel speed. Love the looks, size, feel - silken sexiness - and reactions evoked in men and women alike!!


Worst Features

Throw in the hardtop and I'll drive it year-round even in SD! Make it easier to find instructions about how to add 3rd party CD Changers, Cell Phones etc., that this is already pre-wired for.

2003 BMW Z4 2.5i 2dr Roadster (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is my first BMW and my first
Roadster. I was always a fan of the
Z3 since my brother bought one in
2001. His was stylish, powerfull, and
a blast to drive. My heart was set on
a Z3 and I was not very fond of the
Z4. Over time, it began to grow on
me. I now own a brand new 2.5L Z4
Roadster and I love it!! Very sporty,
powerfull, handles great, and is a
gorgeous automobile. The navigation
system is a little difficult to use
but once you get the handle of it, it
is fun to use. The only problem I
have with it is with the top up, the
blind spot is a real problem. Other
than that, it is a beauty. I highly
recommend one.


Best Features

Styling; Navigation system; 5 speed a must.


Worst Features

Blind spot with top up. A little more trunk space to fit golf clubs.

2003 BMW Z4 2.5i 2dr Roadster (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is an upgrade from the Z-3 I had,
I like the keyless entry and back glass
window with defroster much better it
just has a few more whistles and bells,
seems to handle the road a little
better, and I don't see one very other
car like I did with the Z-3.


Best Features

Back glass with defroster... automatic convertible top, heated seats


Worst Features

maybe find a way to install On Star in it

2003 BMW Z4 3.0i 2dr Roadster (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Wasn't in market for car (getting
530i), but took a ride after hearing
about dealer incentives. Car is
addictive; bought it. Very precise and
responsive. Well worth the price paid
(under $39k for loaded vehicle listing
over $47k).

Only problem is dealer; salesman rammed
it with a customer's used car a few
days later (381 miles) when I took it
back for a paint problem. Now dealer
acts like I don't exist. Got an email
into BMW North America to see how they
handle it. Meanwhile having to use own
insurance to get it repaired.


Best Features

shift (throw), sport button, electric roof, heated seats, very tight steering, overall feel


Worst Features

between the seats storage bin door is flimsy, missing built in garage door opener, useless glove box, would like more analog guages, get rid of reset buttons at base between tach and odometer

Review

This car is as close to perfect as I
have ever seen. I previously owned an
Acura TL, one of the "sports sedans",
but nothing can compare to this car!
You don't have to sacrifice much in
the way of comfort and utility for
this much style and performane. Many
say the styling is "controversial",
but it is really the most beautiful
car I have ever seen. Though it only
has 225 hp, my Z4 has beaten Corvettes
with close to 400. I love the
vicious growl of its engine in the
cold morning air. I can't imagine how
a 3000 lb. car with 225 hp can go that
fast. Others cannot even compare to
it. Wonderful BMW. This is the
roadster to
own!


Best Features

Performance, handling, build quality, styling, NAV system... This car has it all!


Worst Features

Fuel economy, pretty good for roadster.
