Overall:

Maybe The Best Roadster In His Class... — Only the Nissan 350Z Roadster would do better, but is more an agressive sportscar than the Z4. So for the average consumer maybe the better advice is Z4. Sporty, accelerating incredible, great sound, perfect handling in curves, immediate feedback.. you just always feel the ride. ESP is interacting late, following BMWs sporty ambition. If you like it a bit slower and more comfortable the SLK would be your choice, the better car is by far the Z4. But if you are above 190cm both cars would not fit! Beside that the only con I could find is the comfort in topspeed... even a sporty car does not need to bounce like the Z4 with 210+. Desing has the potential to remain timeless.

Pros: Everything except..

Cons: ..comfort in topspeed.

Quick Nice Looking Roadster — Not nearly as well made as the S2000 but a better everyday car with more usable performance and not as likely to die due to it being quite good fun within the speed limits

Pros: Looks performance sound of 6 Cylinder engine

Cons: Shoddy build quality for a 'prestige brand'

Its A Alright Car, Not A Good Ride For Distance, Fun For Short Rides — Its a good car to look at, not a very nice ride for cruising, I prefer the corvette- had 2 of them first.

Pros: good gas milage,well made, good looking

Cons: too many things to go wrong, 4 wires to each wheel, seems like the suspention is drooping

Handles well and has sufficient power. Glass rear window and power top are convenient. Comfortable and fun to drive. Maintenance costs are expensive.

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
