    Great, Fun Summer Car. — After 4 years I still love the Z! As with all convertibles, there is now some road noise from the top. It has been a great autocross competitor and with the BF Goodrich racing tires it really sticks to the autocross course.

    Pros: Handles like a dream.  The Z4 has 50/50 weight distribution and with the traction control in the off position, you can really throw it around in the corners.

    Cons: BMW sells their cars with runflat tires standard.  Runflat tires have a tendancy to tramline or follow the grooves in the highway that the semitrucks create.

    Wife Loves It! — Its a sharp looking vehicle. But designed for the ladies. Not enough power. Performance is not that great.

    Pros: Price

    Cons: Performance

    An Experiment In Sport Speed — Too early to say, but I will return. The car is clearly beautiful. I return: I have now had the car 2 years and while I do not put too many miles on it; it has run very well. It has been to Los Angeles and Las Vegas a few times and ran awfully great. The mechanical portions are as beautiful as they were when I bought it. The interior features work as well as brand new. Two issues of insignificance. The cigarette lighter door is permanently open. It will not lock closed. The airfoil is too low to the ground and often scrapes at a bump in the road. Run flats take getting used to as the tires will "rut" in a creased area of pavement. It no longer bothers me. I make the adjustment easily. The car has excellent acceleration from normal driving speeds. It is incredibly responsive to gentle handling.

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

    Pros: Well, it is my first day so I will hold off saying more for 1,000 miles or so.  It is a great car.  Everything has well over 40,ooo miles on it and nothing has given a problem.

    Cons: Tight fit getting in and out, unless the top  is down.  Comfortable inside at 6' 200 lbs  I have the 18" wheels with run flats.  If I run over a dime, I feel it.  But, it is a sports car and the reward is the way it holds a tun and runs like a bat out of hell on a flat straight away.  Watch out for potholes as they could actually crack a wheel.  The front plastic airfoil is really too low.  I cannot believe that low height is reasonable for any speed you might want to try.  It purrs at 90 through 100.  That is fast enough for me at 63 years old.

    Love My Z4 — Our Z4 is beautiful to look at, great to drive, but our move to Florida will make it impossible to enjoy. We only put 12,400 miles on this almost new machine.........and really do not want to part with it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Holds 2 golf bags.  We love our Z.

    Cons: We are retiring and it's getting tight.

    "The all wheel drive it then TT grips a whole lot better and can out handle a Z4 in snow"
