Sporty, Fun, And Practical - All In One — Sporty convertible without breaking the bank. Most fun on curvy mountain roads. Has great acceleration even with the 2.5i. Even at 80mph, still plenty of passing pep. Looks best with the top down. Great car for just fun or everyday driving.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive.

Cons: None

Awesome — It is always a joy to be on the road and getting great compliments about this beautiful thing that was made for gracious individuals. There is no other satisfaction like you, me, and the convertible on 17 mile drive Pebble Beach.

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

Pros: Sporty and beauty. Fast and fun.

Cons: what is there not to love?

A Fun Sporty Car! — I love the convertible top, but I wish it was a retractable hard top. The tires are $400 each and need to be replaced every 20 to 30k miles. I get about 27 mpg on the highway. It has a nice size trunk for a convertible. It's a beautiful car that turns heads every where it goes.

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

Pros: Great fun cat to drive. It's been almost trouble free.

Cons: The ride is a little choppy, but well worth it.

Best Just For Fun! — Well made and good cornering and great power. The cup holders are not well done. The fuel economy is impresive for a sports car. This car gets to be difficult getting in and out of if one is six feet tall or taller.

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

Pros: Power and handling!

Cons: Long trips if you are tall, not so good

Love It — Its hard for me to believe this car is 9 years old. It handles like a dream. Entering the freeway or passing at highway speed is a breeze. It practically begs you to take the long way home and find a twisty road. I've had it about 11 months and can never go back. Maintenance does cost more but in my case it's because I actually care about making sure the car is in great shape. In the past I've driven cars for months with the engine light on and it never phased me. Now I'm actually doing a legitimate maintenance plan. My advice skip the Starbucks or expensive dinner once a month and stick that money in your BMW account and have fun.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This car handles like a dream. It is just fun to drive.  Automatic is a little slow out of the gate but works well when you shift ore and use as a manual

Cons: Gas mileage. Maintenance. No aux input for iPod.

Great Car Despite Potential Costs — Drives well, nice car in general. A lot of fun to drive with top down. Great handling but less so than the 325xi I have. It is in good shape and seems reliable but I am hoping repairs will not kill me over time as this baby has 100k+ miles

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, fun, fun

Cons: Repair costs

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great looking Car with Nice get up and go. Stick to the road like glue.

Cons: The Repairs and maintains.

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: 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

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
