1. Cup holders aren�t good. Driver side holder broken in first month of ownership and placed a large scratch on my left leg. Even in working order the cup holders are designed to hold an enormous cup; isn�t useful with a normal sized travel cup. 2. Head light sensor isn�t working correctly; this is a big disappointment. A three year old car shouldn�t have this issue. 3. Nav system is very good. 4. Tire monitor too sensitive during cold weather. 5. Heating/air conditioning is very good. 6. Seating is comfortable 7. Very limited space for storage. Glove box too small, storage compartments too small. 8. Interior head liner vibrates at higher speeds. Sound is annoying. 9. Exterior and color is very stylish; car is a head turner for sure. 10. Because the car is so small it�s not always seen on the road. Defensive driving is a must. 11. Car is small and low to the ground. Has more road noise than a regular sedan. Overall great car, fun to drive, very stylish, head turner but really needs a solid answer for the cup holders; features like automatic head lights and tire monitor should work better.
I have to admit, this is the second Z4 and they were each a great ride. I had the sportier version first, excellent. Though my fiance classifies me as an aggressive driver, I never once used the sport button. It was an excellent car, that version is also highly recommended! The one I presently have is moreso the luxury version. Very comfy ride, love love love the tan interior with wood-like dash. My 4 year old loves the "head off" (or top down to us "grown ups"). Music, awesome. Nav, great. The navigation is a bit cumbersome. The newer models may have touch screen. This year, it does not. My biggest and only real complaint?? The cup holders. They are touch and expand/retract. That's a cool feature, but they're a bit shallow and are way too big for a can or bottle of something. They have a click function to have the holder to become narrow, but not narrow enough. It still jiggles because it's so shallow. Drinking whatever 1/3 down is probably your safest bet before putting anything in that cup holder. God forbid you hit a pothole or something... Especially with my tan interior. OOPS! All in all, I'd buy this car 10x over. I can keep my beverage consumption to a minimum if it means having such a fun, comfortable car. Definitely a hit!
My friend had one. She let me give it a drive and I fell in love with it. So I went and purchased it. I am on my 2nd BMW Z4 now ( newer one) and love it as much as my first.
