Sporty, Fun, And Practical - All In One — Sporty convertible without breaking the bank. Most fun on curvy mountain roads. Has great acceleration even with the 2.5i. Even at 80mph, still plenty of passing pep. Looks best with the top down. Great car for just fun or everyday driving.

Awesome — It is always a joy to be on the road and getting great compliments about this beautiful thing that was made for gracious individuals. There is no other satisfaction like you, me, and the convertible on 17 mile drive Pebble Beach.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Great fun cat to drive. It's been almost trouble free.

Cons

The ride is a little choppy, but well worth it.

A Fun Sporty Car! — I love the convertible top, but I wish it was a retractable hard top. The tires are $400 each and need to be replaced every 20 to 30k miles. I get about 27 mpg on the highway. It has a nice size trunk for a convertible. It's a beautiful car that turns heads every where it goes.

Best Just For Fun! — Well made and good cornering and great power. The cup holders are not well done. The fuel economy is impresive for a sports car. This car gets to be difficult getting in and out of if one is six feet tall or taller.

Pros

This car handles like a dream. It is just fun to drive.  Automatic is a little slow out of the gate but works well when you shift ore and use as a manual

Cons

Gas mileage. Maintenance. No aux input for iPod.

Love It — Its hard for me to believe this car is 9 years old. It handles like a dream. Entering the freeway or passing at highway speed is a breeze. It practically begs you to take the long way home and find a twisty road. I've had it about 11 months and can never go back. Maintenance does cost more but in my case it's because I actually care about making sure the car is in great shape. In the past I've driven cars for months with the engine light on and it never phased me. Now I'm actually doing a legitimate maintenance plan. My advice skip the Starbucks or expensive dinner once a month and stick that money in your BMW account and have fun.

Great Car Despite Potential Costs — Drives well, nice car in general. A lot of fun to drive with top down. Great handling but less so than the 325xi I have. It is in good shape and seems reliable but I am hoping repairs will not kill me over time as this baby has 100k+ miles

Bmw Z4 — Performance - acceleration, is ok, nice pick up, but the 3L is better. Build Quality, So far i spent over 12 thousand in repair, i wouldn't Recomend getting this car unless you realy want it. Roof played up cost me 51 hundread, then there was a leak in raitor, then few weeks later that went. Other Friends that own a Z4 have also had Problems, poping up. Stick with the Hard Top No problem so ive heard. Other than my problems i've had with my car its a great car to drive.

Pros

3.0L version has good performance & Handling rocks & Luxurious and sexy

Cons

2.5L version sucks try to the the Z4M if possible & has only 2 seats

2004 Bmw Z4 — THE VERDICT: PERFORMANCE is good as long as you get the 3.0L not the 2.5L. You will get decent acceleration, top speed, braking, and handling. Its handling is KICK ASS by the way. Its also pretty light weight. If you have the money though get the Z4M. Fastest brand new car for $50,000. ROAD it has great luxuries and looks sexy for hot chick to ride in. Its not a bad price to own either. Its tough enough on the streets for racing too. Only issue is that it is not too practical considering it is a two seat roadster.

Bmw Z-4 — This car is a love it or hate it. The feel of a real roadster like my previous Triumph Tr6, and the gadgets and the feel of a later year BMW. This car makes my heart race around a windy road at 35 miles an hour. Handles great and even with the samller 2.5 v6 there is plenty of get up and go.
