Overall:

You ignore the specifications I ask for in my 3 search.es. You even send me other cars that I TOTALLY did NOT ask for like SUV’s, sedans and American cars of all types. I only want to see cars in the 3 specific searches I ask for. Please do not waste my time with others. My husband bought a 450 SL from your site. Please send me only what I search for!

Overall:

A lot of fun, especially with a tune (ESS stage 2 is phenomenal). Storage is not ideal, but there are OEM accessories that may be of help (cup holder attachment, storage shelves instead of pass through), but are a little more difficult to track down since 2016 was the last production year.

Yes. I’m still looking for the right one. But all views and my knowledge of the 2016 Z4’s are very special.

I’ve had 2 BMW’s a Z3 1997 and an 08 Z4... they really were the ultimate driving machine! I will forever have BMW Z as a favorite car... the car is amazing! Fun to drive, easy to park, and everyone wants to drive it!

Overall:

Perfect driving car...top up or down. Its quite like a coupe with the top up and its wind in your hair fun with the top down. Trunk space is limited with the top down...so its difficult to take long trips in...if you want to be able to drop the top. On a trip to California, we had to leave one piece of luggage with a hotel in Bakersfield so wed be able to drop the top for the drive up the PCH to Monterrey.

This is a very nice car. It’s unfortunate that the one I owed happen to be a lemon but I’ve researched and the issues I had weren’t common for this car.

2016 BMW Z4 Review
GuruYQ2TX says:
I purchased a 2015 BMW 28l. I really enjoy this vehicle as it is reasonably quick and handles well. My only complaints are: 1. The comfort driving mode is too sluggish, which requires me to drive in the sport mode to get the sport car driving experience. 2. The run flat makes the ride a bit harsh. Otherwise, I really like this vehicle.
vs2016 Audi TTS
2016 BMW Z4 winning categories:
  • Power
  • Handling
  • Looks/Style
  • Front Seats
  • Back Seats
  • Cargo Capacity
  • Family Car
  • Value
  • Would Buy
Power Ranked 2016 Audi TTS better.
"Ideally, it would have been a more apples to apples comparison had I driven the TT, not the TTS as the TT is more in line with the BMW Z4 28i. That being said, the TTS was much faster. "
Handling Ranked 2016 Audi TTS better.
"The Z4’s rear-end was was a bit loose when pressed in turns, the TTS was more stable in turns."
Looks/Style Ranked 2016 Audi TTS worse.
"Both vehicles are good looking. However, the Z4’s roadster style is classic and unique, whereas many vehicles have the TT styling."
Front Seats Ranked 2016 Audi TTS worse.
"The front seats in both vehicle were comfortable and up to the task. Subjectively, I liked the Z4’s seats slightly better."
Back Seats Ranked 2016 Audi TTS better.
"Simply because the Z4 doesn’t have rear seats. "
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2016 Audi TTS better.
"The TTS has a hatchback and the rear seats can be lowered to provide more storage space. Unfortunately, the Z4’s trunk space is limited with the roof up and very limited with the roof down."
Family Car Ranked 2016 Audi TTS better.
"I do not consider neither car to be a family vehicle, however the TTS is a 4 seater."
Value Ranked 2016 Audi TTS worse.
"The Z4’s hardtop convertible give you the security of a coupe and the convenience/ freedom of a convertible. Additionally, the Z4 (28i) gets better gas mileage than the TTS."
Would Buy Ranked 2016 Audi TTS better.
"The TTS’ interior was more up to date than the Z4. And the TTS has all wheel drive capability. "

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

One of the best cars for the money if you get the 6 cylinder. Makes great power stock and has a variant of the n54 engine so it has the same tuning potential of a 335i.. Read More
