Fun, fun, fun

Cons

Repair costs

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

Styling, handling, accelleration, built quality

Cons

Interior room for storage

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.

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

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

65

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.

Pros

A real roadster

Cons

can't afford 2

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.

Looks like new and drives like new

Cons

It is small but all roadsters are !!!!

A Haute Couture Z4 — I bought this car new in December 2003 and add a special BMW original sport package with side skirts, spoiler etc...that makes the car look very unique and more sporty. I wish it would be a little bit more powerful but overall it handles like a true performance car. I have only 20K miles and expect to have it for another year or two. Looks like brand new and still an eye catcher!

Pros

BMW's warranty that covers everything except tires for the first 4 years.

Cons

There is a glitch that BMW knows about this engine, around 4000 RPM's there is a slight glitch that has caused me to lose a couple of street races :-(

I Love The Fact That I Can Get My Marshall Amp, Podxt Live And 3 Guitars In It! — bought this from a friend for a great price. So I went from a '93 Buick Regal 4 door to this fun little convertible. Here in Arizona I can drive with the top down most of the year! This is the 6 speed manual tranny. My friend told me "good luck getting it into 6th gear" I think you have to be going over 100 to do that!

Pros

Very fun car, girls love it.

Cons

Well, it is a convertible, so sometimes is hard to fix two golf bags.  

35

Very Fun Car To Drive, Even More Than M3 — I have had it for almost 2 years, no complaints. As expected this is a sport ride, if you are looking for confort buy a Cadillac.

Great back ache for the rest of the week

Flawed But Fun — Really wild in the wet, very, very poor seats, smooth engine and lots of fun but tough to live with on a day-to-day basis.
