2001 BMW Z8 2dr Roadster (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


This is a most awesome machine, finely
tuned, the penultimate BMW
achievement. Comfortable interior
belies the power under the hood. Don't
make the mistake of pushing
the "sport" button unless you're
prepared for the extraordinary surge
in power and control "freedom" that
ensues. Don't get this vehicle (if you
can find one) unless you don't mind
constant attention and admiring looks
from bystanders and other drivers.

Best Features

I love the retractable soft-top; it really looks very cool, and use of it (alternating with the hard top) essentially gives you 2 different vehicles.

Worst Features

The vehicle only gets 15 to 20 mpg the way I drive it, but I guess nothing is perfect! Also, it could have used a few more rear speakers for better sound system clarity and forcefulness.
