2005 BMW Z4 3.0i 2dr Roadster (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


I thought a Harley would satisfy my craving for a "fun" vehicle. It didn't. Few months after selling it, I found myself looking at the Miata. Drove one and immediately decided nope. Next found myself looking at the Z4. I absolutely love the styling. Knew nothing about them. Saw a Merlot 05 and fell in love. Drove my first BMW a couple of days later and knew I was hooked. Well I bought an 05 Merlot and haven't looked back. Best car in the galaxy. Fun, fun, fun and it does turn heads. Gas mileage ensures the fact this was a great decision. Need to change out the run flats and need warmer weather then the fun begins again. You gotta try one of these if you don't do anything else with your life!

Best Features

Scary performance with terrific gas mileage. Looks and style. Lots of bells and whistles.

Worst Features

A little easier getting in and out of with the top up.

I'm ready to purchase my 1st BMW. Just tested a '04 & a '05 yesterday & OH-MY-GOODNESS!!! I'm in!!! You mentioned that you need to change out the run flats. Why is that?
