2004 BMW Z4 3.0i 2dr Roadster (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is my first roadster ever and I love it! Most verts Ive driven have lots of body shake and feel like they are falling apart. This car is TIGHT! No shakes over the roughest of roads. The performance is top notch. The handling is incredible. I try my hardest to get the rearend to fishtail in safe settings....cant do it! The interior is very teutonic, very German, very luxurious....top notch.


Best Features

The Bangle styling really gets the looks. I'm told that my car looks so much better in person than it looks in pictures. It definitely has a unique, forward thinking design.


Worst Features

The radio....uuugh! When the top is down, the display cannot be seen whether in shade or direct sun due to the upward angle of the display. it should be angled down or shaded for viewing. The reception is shoddy. I expect better for the 47K sticker price on my car.

2004 BMW Z4 2.5i 2dr Roadster (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Great performance - braking, corners, pickup. Comfortable but stiff ride - but expected in a roadster. Actually gets better gas mileage than expected.


Best Features

Convertible is great. I love the look & detailing of the body.


Worst Features

When you wash the car, some water gets under the door - it doesn't actually get in the car, but it's annoying.

Review

This is truly the Ultimate Driving Machine. I have an SMG transmission which allows you to shift manually with automatic clutching. I have the control of the manual with no clutching hassles! With the Sports mode on, the car gives an amazing feel. The engine sound and in the gut acceleration really gets the juices flowing. The steering is responsive and the suspension tight; this is not a touring sedan. I test drove the Z3 before buying this, and this car feels and drive very differently. It is a lot more powerful and "manly". When I look at it from the front it reminds of a shark & the Z4 rules the road like one. BMW leases are not expensive; get a Z4. Money well spent.


Best Features

SMG Transmission; 7 second power top down; interior fit and finish; engine acoustics; trunk space (enough for our Costco trips); the body lines....


Worst Features

Cup holders, side visibility with top down.

Review

I fell in love with this car at the dealer. It was love at first sight. I went to look at the practical 330xi. I had a 5 series for my last 2 cars and thought I wanted the sporty 3 series with all wheel drive for the mountains of NC. I saw the Z4 and had visions of a jet fighter. It just looks so awesome to me. Well the test drive was even more impresive, I had to have one. The car is so great that we drove it to key west on our vacation rather than flying. It was so cool.


Best Features

The body style is the best of any roadster I've seen and when sitting in the Z4 it has a slung back feeling


Worst Features

I really do not know how the Z4 could be any better than it aleady is.
