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

Pros

Great handling all around, the interior is high quality, and i got to floor it without paying for gas.

Cons

Automatic transmission (really took a lot of fun out of the driving experience), looks girly, engine sounds high pitched.

Fun To Drive, I'm Jealous Of The Owner — I drove it with the top down last fall and it was cold. I wasn't used to it so I didn't get to really play. But, the owner knowing that i wanted to, urged me to step on the gas and i was up to 80 faster than anything I had driven prior. By that time, i was around the block and i got to test out the amazing braking system on that. It's a small car and I'm pretty small too, so it fit me great. I don't think I want to see a man driving one, though. It's a chick car.

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.

My Wife's Favorite Sports Car When Purchased Used Can Be A Great Deal — The best little sports car she's ever owned . Fast , great cornering,low maintenance, stops on a dime and gives you nine cents change ,looks like a high end sports car but can be purchased used for a steal if you spend some time looking around . I've had two of them so far and both have been great .Only changes to the car were a set of Niche 19" wheels on Bridgestone RE950A POTENZA Tires

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.

If You Only Need To Seat Two, And Can Keep Your Briefcase In The Trunk... — A beautiful, powerful little ride. Great in every way, save interior storage space, the absence of bluetooth and a bit of road noise with the top up.

Pros

Fast. Sexy. Fun. Gas mileage. Paddle shifting transmission.

Cons

Rough ride at times.

Amazing. — This car is so amazing. By far a tipped hat to the engineering. 3.0 inline 6 with an SMG transmission. Black with red leather interior. 18 inch BBS/BMW wheels make this car look amazing. The navigation system in the car is very fun to play with as well. It gets over 30 mpg on the highway which is awesome, I've never had a car that could do that, let alone be this sexy. You will not find a car with these options anywhere around here. The m sport seats, smg tranny, premium pack, sports pack, conv pack, navi. Its nearly one of a kind and the SMG transmission cannot be purchased with this car in the USA anymore. Euro still has it, but Americans apparently didn't bite on it. Its nearly perfect.

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.

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.
