    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.

    Just Point It Where You Want To Go And Hold On. — A great car to have at your disposal -- providing you don't want to haul more than one other person. Not only sporty and good-looking -- it has adequate trunk room too.

    Pros: holds the road through the twisty turning pathways

    Cons: A little bumpy

    It's The Same Old Story, You Know The Score. I Work At The U And Roll The Z4. —

    It's been a long time since I've had a car I really and truly loved. I've heard a few complaints about the body styling compared to the Z3 but honestly I really like the lines on this thing. It's a beast. The inline six purrs and and hums, pulling you through traffic effortlessly. I test drove a lot of convertibles before settling on this one including the Honda S2000, Porsche Boxster, Mazda Miata (mx-speed edition), Nissan 350z, and the Pontiac Solstice. Of the ones I drove, this is the one I could really see as a capable daily driver with plenty of ability to have fun when the mood strikes me. The auto drops in about 6 or 7 seconds, plenty of time to go topless at a stoplight. For sheer driving excitement and engagement I'd say the Porsche beats it. When you're driving the boxster that's what you're doing. You're DRIVING it. I definitely recommend changing away from the stock run flat tires as they will seriously dampen your enthusiasm for the car, but with good tires, this thing will move. When I test drove this car, I got it up on the highway and there was no discernable difference in the handling of the car or in engine noise between 40 and 100 mph. I think that was what originally sold me on it.

    Pros: Reasonably fast, totally comfortable to drive in, more trunk space than most 2 seater convertibles (really), Well designed controls and the auto transmission is one of the best I've had the pleasure of experiencing.  Also, the gas milage rocks for a "sporty car" I average 24 mpg.

    Cons: It's not an M3.  If you get the 2.5i of this model year I'd suspect it would feel a bit underpowered.  The 3.0i feels "just right" to me.

    Zippy And Nimble Roadster — I was only half-hearted when I saw this car, as I really wanted something with four seats. But one test drive later and I was 'I have got to get me one of these!'... so I did. Nimble handling and with enough power to leave most traffic behind and I am now hooked to al fresco motoring.

    Pros: Handling. Silky, creamy-smooth in-line 6. Ability to go al fresco to hear that engine and exhaust.

    Cons: Next car now has to be another cabrio. Always thinking of mods.

    Awesome. — Wow. This is one of the most fun cars to drive. I'm not sure how an extended road trip would go in it, but for doing the daily commute or even a short road trip it would be awesome.

    Pros: Fast, excellent styling, equipped with run-flats, decent trunk size, power soft top, AT has manual mode, comfortable seats. It will also remember all your settings like seat position, windows open, top down, mirror positions, etc. and reset them automatically when you unlock the car for up to 4 different drivers, based on whose remote is used to unlock it. It also has a ton of options, like a nav system, upgraded sound system, xenon headlamps, SMG, and heated seats.

    Cons: Not much interior storage space, could use more leg room.
