Great, even 5 years after manufacture!

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


I fell in love with the Z4 while looking for a sports car. Had a rough start though; since I have the sport package a deep pothole ate the passenger side and forced a repair. Then the convertible top refused to work. Then an electrical failure forced another round of work. In all though, I've taken this to the track and on road trips-and it's been sheer joy. Even driving to work is fun! It's gotten nice looks from passerby too. A few nits: tire roar is deafening even with top up, rattles galore on rough roads, and auto top suffers from finicky electrical shortages. But don't let those stop you from buying this wonderful machine.

Best Features

Automatic roof, large trunk for the style of car, styling, electrochromatic mirrors.

Worst Features

Better build quality (fix roof drainage system to avoid electrical shortages, make body panel construction more rugged, dampen spaces between areas of large tolerances, i.e., map compartment), dampen noise better with top up.
