Performance, economy & reliability!
By Don Durant on


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


I've owned lots of foreign cars & sporty cars, but never a BMW before & if the Z4 is indicative of all BMWs, I'm a convert. In 42,000 miles, the care has only been in the shop for regular maintenance (FREE!) & that's only about every 15,000 miles. The Z4 is hands down the most practical sports car I've owned. Combined fuel economy is 25.5 mpg. The original tires lasted 40,000 miles. I'm 6'2" & it's comfortable, even for long trips. I drive lots on 2 lane country roads & the passing power is excellent. The Steptronic transmission is fun or easy & I love the sport drive feature. My next car will definitely be a BMW if this one ever wears out!

Best Features

Sports car performance & good looks.

Worst Features

I don't have the Xenon headlight & really wish I did. Compared to my wife's Acura MDX, the lights are barely adequate.
