2003 BMW Z4 3.0i Roadster RWDReview

Fun And Sexy — I love this car. Performance is great, its a canyon carver so the suspension is alittle hard, but there is no body roll in the turns. Brakes are where you need them and the steering is exact, almost toy like. Some my like that feel and others don't. You sit low to the ground for that roadster feel and the body lines are to die for. its gets about 21 city and 29 highway so not to bad, for a sports car. Oil changes can be expensive, but changed only after every 10k miles. I always but 91, alittle more expensive but worth it. Fun to drive? Hell to the yes

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

Pros: Handling, acceleration, fun factor

Cons: bad ride on rough roads, 2 seats, smallish trunk

Very Comfortable And The Top Down With The Heated Seats On Fall Color Tour Can't Be Beat. — Picked this beauty up on a lease trade out of Memphis, TN. Had a buddy (thanks Pete W.!) fly Sharon and i down on a Sunday morning, did the deal on the car, and drove home 700 miles- by 11pm that night! This car is very high on the fun factor and with winter wheels and tires, was formidable in the snow-even to a buddies of the tracks snowmobile cabin:)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: a 2 seat convertible of course!

Cons: need room for more than two, get something else.

Fun Commuter Car. Its A Beemer!! : ) — Performance is good for a 225hp inline 6, brakes well no fading. No issues with build quality, so far. Convertible top opens in 10 seconds! 26 MPG average, (using mid-grade gas) with 65K miles on it. So far only cost of maintanence has been oil changes and one set of new tires. Got rid of the run-flats, better & quieter ride now. Sexy good looks! Many compliments on it. It's my daily driver, very fun to drive. Except in snow or ice you should leave it home. Mine has the step-tronic trans but next one will be a manual.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good Looks, adequate power, superior build quality

Cons: RWD!!  Not an 'M'.

Bmw Z4 — performance is quite good dont have to rev hard plenty of torque from the striaght six. Build quality is typically BMW. i might be bias about the styling but i think it is more curvy than the new model. mpg fantastic if you dont have a lead foot. fantastic when the sun is shining.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: sunnydays

Cons: rainydays

Classic Roadster With Bmw Quality — Bought it used for the price of a new Civic. Quick, handles well, flawless mechanicals, quiet with top up, so fast around corners you may need Dramamine. People can't not look at it. And it even gets 26.5 mpg. 10 speakers sound great

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: gorgeous

Cons: radio reception

My Car — i Love the fact that it has a soft top and goes like stonk when given the berries! My first rear wheel driven car, i'm not sure i could go back to front wheel drive. although, not having somewhere to store the removable hardtop is a pain in the arse!

Pros: looks amazing and draws looks wherever i go

Cons: cost of tyres!

Looks Even Better With Red Leather! — A great roof down, wind-in-your-hair motor. Very quick, handles like a dream and has head turning looks. If you can live with the firm ride on a day-to-day basis as well as the lack of rear seats then it is a cracker to own.

Pros: Quick, good looking, great handling.

Cons: Firm ride, not overly practical, high insurance group (19)

Bimmer Zed 4 — There wasn't much I disliked about the car, it's been the favorite I've ever driven, a real eye catcher. It was good on gas as well so I didn't fill up all that much, very fun to drive, just went zoom. The top was also very fast to open or close. Well just about anything else was great, from the hidden and stylish cup holders to the surprisingly good trunk space.

Pros: Fast opening/closing convertible top, good power with good fuel economy, eye catching

Cons: Soft top causes big blind spots, not for larger individuals, could be considered expensive

Baby Land Shark — Great cure for midlife crisis. Built for handling and surprisingly comfortable, too. If you're going to allow yourself one extravagance, this is a good one.

Pros: Looks AND personality. Wears GREAT.
Runflats are life-savers.

Cons: Sometimes the radio reception isn't that good.
Runflats COST.

The new Z4 30i is not really a thrill... it’s more like a weekend fun car! A little more muscle wouldn’t hurt. Maybe the Z4 40i can “deliver” that? Read More
