Great Weekend Toy — Great looking very fast car with DCT transmission. Easily tunes as its a twin turbo. Hard finding a good turbo back exhaust as so few of these cars are on the road. Found one by Milltek with great sound. Nice SS pipes. Car is only usable for someone 5'10 or less as not much legroom. Doesn't handle as well as my former Boxster by any means. Better looking Boxter 987. Newer Boxster is as good looking if not better. Just lacks the power of a tuned Z4 twin turbo. If not tracking the car, it's no big deal. Less expensive than Porsche. Quality equal.

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

Awesome Roadster — Love the style and soft Napa leather seats, interior leather, power and performance. Overall this has been a great car. The DCT transmission is an awesome piece of technology. 35i Turbo engine is far more HP than the 300 HP BMW states it has.

By Beauty — The looks, the handling, the power, the fun : great!! Tight cornering on a twisty mountain road is amazing! The downside for some of us: It´s NO FAMILY CAR, its not cheap in buying or maintaining. And it has only 2 seats so for picking up friends at the airport or going to Ikea requires an additional 4-seater..

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Sporty style, that handles the curves and allows wind in your face experience or put the top up and quiet the ride.  Likes to travel throught the canyons and hill country, while taking in the scenery.  It's appearance turns heads, it is a comfortable two seater that has enough space for two people for long weekend trips.

Cons

electric steering is not a true as the previous non elecctric

Exhilerating — The styling of the e89 is much improved over the previous Z4. The lines are sleek and blend nicely both on the exterior and inside the cabin. The retractable hardtop is a uxury to ehnace the quietness and protect from the changing elements. The ride is typical of a roadster but not as harsh without runflats. The gas milage is 25 - 28 in town and on the open road cursing should get you 32+. Having the base engine is plenty but if you are wanting more than move up to the twin turbo. The vehicle like all BMW's is safe and makes driving a pleasure. It handles difficult situations with ease. Whether it is a weekend jaunt or a road trip, the new Z4 is fun and will turn heads as you curise the backroads or up and down the strip.
