2011 Z435is ride performance
I bought a BMW Z4 35is last month. Great car except for the ride. I have been in ancient trucks with bare tires that ride better than the Z. The car feels every bump, crack and hole in the road and seems to have no shock absorption at all. Is this the ride I should expect?
Short wheelbase, performance tires, bigger rims, sport suspension, sounds about right. If it is too much for you, I suggest having a BMW indy shop check out the suspension for you. Maybe a spring is broken, worn and or the struts and bushings need replacing. Parts do wear out. Are you around 80-100K? Time to replace those struts.
Perhaps a Buick is more suitable? lol j/k! Perhaps the previous owner drove the hell out of it and it needs a suspension refresh as mentioned above. New bushings, struts, bump stops, springs, etc. Did you get it inspected before you bought it? You could also downsize your rims to get a taller sidewall.
