Pros

Rolls-Royce once quoted the power of their cars as "enough". This car has ENOUGH. Combined with fresh air and a delightful exhaust note, who could ask for more?

Cons

Only 2 seats - is that bad ... or good...

Ultimate Sports Car. — Quoted 0-60 for the 3 litre auto is 6.1 seconds, although I have not tried it! It is fast, with brakes and handling to match. Can change gears manually, or leave the auto box to it, depending on your mood. With the hood down (takes 12 seconds) I cannot stop smiling. Even when it's cold outside, with the heater on and heated seats, it is quite cosy. And the all-round visibility is excellent Even the boot space is very good. Only had two minor problems - wipers not parking (oil in motor) and a loose door mirror glass (glued). I get 25mpg around town, with upto 36mpg on a run - not bad!

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

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.

Pros

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.
