Great Fun Ride, Never A Dull Moment. — This car has been a staple of weekend day trips. Everything about driving this car is fun, sporty and reliable for cornering at high speeds. My only gripe would be the cost of owning such a vehicle but in my eyes its far worth it..

This Is That Sports Car You Need. — I have had this car for seven years. This is longer than any other car I have owned. It is reliable, fast, fun to drive and gets 27 mpg on the highway. Get one now while you can still enjoy it.

Excellent Fuel Economy ,with Power Accelerates Very Well. — This is a fun car to drive, it handles well in corners , and accelerates on the on ramps a fine machine that roars down the road to a certain degree it reminds me of the American made Cheverolet corvette a fantastic driving experince..with a larger front disc brake than the rear for a better braking performance experience.....

Nice Car — Good power, nice handling but little but expensiveon maintenance. Good Looking car. Bad on gas. Very very fun to drive. I love to drive it until it dies. interior looked awesome back to 2003. Now it still looks sick. I am glad to drive it as a daily car.

Z4 3.0i — Awesome car overall. No problems at 80k! Handles like it's on rails and it's very quick! No repairs except for scheduled oil changes. I get up to 30 mpg's on the highway which is great for a sports car! Interior is awesome and the fit and finish is great. Seats feel great too. The fun factor is the reason you buy these cars. Lots of looks, lots of grip and plenty of power with the low weight of the car.

Great Fun To Drive Roadster — With it's smooth power through all gears and great handling this is a wonderful car to tear up the winding country roads. A little hard to get into unless the top is down. Not fun to drive with top up feels cramped, though there is ample leg room and seats are comfortable. Kicking sound system

Fun And Sexy — I love this car. Performance is great, its a canyon carver so the suspension is alittle hard, but there is no body roll in the turns. Brakes are where you need them and the steering is exact, almost toy like. Some my like that feel and others don't. You sit low to the ground for that roadster feel and the body lines are to die for. its gets about 21 city and 29 highway so not to bad, for a sports car. Oil changes can be expensive, but changed only after every 10k miles. I always but 91, alittle more expensive but worth it. Fun to drive? Hell to the yes

Very Comfortable And The Top Down With The Heated Seats On Fall Color Tour Can't Be Beat. — Picked this beauty up on a lease trade out of Memphis, TN. Had a buddy (thanks Pete W.!) fly Sharon and i down on a Sunday morning, did the deal on the car, and drove home 700 miles- by 11pm that night! This car is very high on the fun factor and with winter wheels and tires, was formidable in the snow-even to a buddies of the tracks snowmobile cabin:)

Fun Commuter Car. Its A Beemer!! : ) — Performance is good for a 225hp inline 6, brakes well no fading. No issues with build quality, so far. Convertible top opens in 10 seconds! 26 MPG average, (using mid-grade gas) with 65K miles on it. So far only cost of maintanence has been oil changes and one set of new tires. Got rid of the run-flats, better & quieter ride now. Sexy good looks! Many compliments on it. It's my daily driver, very fun to drive. Except in snow or ice you should leave it home. Mine has the step-tronic trans but next one will be a manual.

Bmw Z4 — performance is quite good dont have to rev hard plenty of torque from the striaght six. Build quality is typically BMW. i might be bias about the styling but i think it is more curvy than the new model. mpg fantastic if you dont have a lead foot. fantastic when the sun is shining.
