Overall:

Drove my 2012 BMW Z4 home to Oklahoma from Denver Colorado, Man what a nice car! My last one was a 2003 and the 12 is a NEW Cat! Comfortable to a fault, wider, more comfortable heated seats, Metal top, bigger engine. The ride, power, comfort and amminities are awsome! 32 miles per gal at 85 mph cruise! IF your looking for state of the art the 2012 S drive Z4 is IT!!

Luxury And Performance With Surprisingly Good Gas Milage — Really like the handling and love the lines of this car. The comfort access, premium sound and technology package provide all the features I love. Heated seats are always a must in a top down convertible. I really couldn't ask for anything more from this amazing 2-seater.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love the color and lines of this car

Cons: You can't fit your Great Dane in the back!

A Very Stylish Sports Car. A Piece Of Art You Can Drive. — BMW's Z4 is as much about looks and style as it is about performance. A wildly fun car to drive. Don't plan on going shopping though, there isn't much room to bring anything home with you. This car made a great "fun" car for weekend drives in the summer. Not sure what they thought people would use the through trunk ski bag for? The 4 cylinder engine was plenty of power, coupled with the 6 speed manual transmission. The traction control kept the back end behind me very well, and the breaks are exceptional at any speed. The fit and finish top notch. If you can swing it - I would recommend getting one.

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

Pros: Beautiful style. Sporty convertable. Many great convenience features. Hard top.

Cons: Very limited cargo space. Very low for old people.

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

Pros: buy it than Porsche Boxer or Cayman

Cons: Its too good that can kick TTRS easily

"Even though it cost me more in terms of the ownership to have a BMW but for some reason this BMW to me will not look outdated in 10 or 20 years. Its a classic hit instantly !"

Good power and handling. Excellent roadster styling with a long hood and short trunk. Very cramped entry for anyone approaching 6 ft. Good acceleration and exhaust note

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
