I'd recommend it to friends as a weekend driver unless they are totally kidlet free. It's a great empty-nest car and has all the bells and whistles one expects from a BMW roadster.
2004 BMW Z4 - Convertible Top
2004 BMW Z4Kris - Modesto, CA04/19/2011
I've been very pleased with my Z4 since I got it.
The handling is amazing and acceleration is quick. The automatic transmission shifts very smoothly. The convertible top goes down and up in about 15 seconds. The look of the car is definitely an attention grabber, looks best with the top down. The car looks small, but despite that I fit nicely and so do some of my larger friends. I'm 5'-9", 200 lbs.
On rough roads the ride is hard. I have the run flat tires which accounts for some of the hardness but not all. The suspension is just too stiff. The top is cloth, not vinyl, so there is a little more care that needs to be taken but it gives it a more classy look.
I would recommend this to anyone wanting a nice luxury roadster for a fair amount.
The Nissan 350Z does perform slightly better but it lacks European style.
The Audi TT has a smooth ride but the car is too sluggish and ugly.
The Honda S2000 got discontinued for a reason.
I hope this helped. =)
Sexy power. My "James Bond" mid life crisis.
2011 BMW Z4Tom Hughes - Amelia Island, FL10/24/2015
Excellent construction. Gorgeous looks. Fast! Love the sports package ( entirely 3 different suspension / transmission) configurations. 2800 mile road trip averaged 30.1 mpg.
Henry Ford once famously told customers that his Model T came in any color they wanted, so long as that color was black. That was over 100 years ago. Today, the vehicles available to us come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, with a profusion of available options and features. Whether you're shopping for a quality used vehicle, or you want to take the plunge with a new car, 2017 is a great time to see what's available.
With its sleek, compact design and plush features, those seeking the best luxury car on the market won't want to overlook the BMW 3-Series. The BMW 328 is our best luxury car of 2018, based on CarMax sales data from November 1, 2017, through April 30, 2018.
