2003 BMW Z8 2dr Roadster (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This is as pretty a car as one could ever hope to own. The exterior lines are great and the interior is beautiful. It is fun to drive and a pleasure to just look at. The fit is perfect for all body parts and both the soft and hard tops. If you are considering a Z8, be sure you get all the original accessories. You might also ask that the Performance Kit be installed. Reputable dealers would know the part and understand why you would want it.
Update 08/2017: Still loving this car. Entered it in a car show in Carmel last week. Other cars included five Ferraris and several Porsches including a 911-50. Our Z8 won Best in Show. It was the most admired car on the street.
Update 02/2018: No change in my admiration for this car. It seems to be ticking up in value too.

2003 BMW Z8 2dr Roadster (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

One of the first off the production line. A silver was firmly in my mind,however when I saw the hot red color on this baby with a black interior, I knew this was my car! No where can you drive without turning heads. From young coeds, males in hot rods to interested observers at the gas pump, it demands attention but does not require frequent stops. Sports car feel, vintage hints to design from the past mixed with the latest technology and mechanics, this car runs! Sit in the drives seat and feel engulfed in a peice of history and the future. Comfortable, with the brute power (almost 400hp) to get the adrenaline surging. Exotic sports car ownership with minimal maintenance. The Z-8!


Best Features

The looks, the feel, and the engulfment of the driver and passanger into an experience to drive. From the sports button releasing the full power, to the smooth shifting of the 6 tight gears and the sound of the horses thrusting the Z-8 along the road are hard to equal. Top off easy for a change.


Worst Features

More convienient placement of cigarette lighter for radar use. Better accessory covers for the top release behind the front seats.
