Very Comfortable And The Top Down With The Heated Seats On Fall Color Tour Can't Be Beat. Only a lack of side support in the otherwise comfortable seats intrudes on your full enjoyment of hard cornering. The Z4's excellent handling and performance speak much louder than its looks, and they quickly erase any misgivings about its lines. Not fun to drive with top up feels cramped, though there is ample leg room and seats are comfortable. It looked nearly new as it had very light use for the first 14 years of its life. Most roadster buyers will probably find the silver-toned standard material more to their liking.
Suspension has been stiffened considerably — especially with the sport package, which includes a pushbutton Dynamic Driving Control system. The new Z4 has front knee airbags, a technology also borrowed from the 7-Series, as standard, along with front and side bags. And speaking of function, Michigan byways make it clear that it's a little too easy to use up all the suspension travel — not a desirable trait from an outfit whose ultimate driving fame is composed of comfort and competence in more or less equal measure. This latter engine was superseded by a 2. It was made of bits from the old parts shelf, including a 3-series rear suspension that was already one generation old when it appeared on the Z3. Since the tires had not worn out, we did not include this cost in our final tally.
Still, the Z4 has a feel of solid certainty that's on a par with ragtop structural stalwarts such as the S2000 and the Corvette. We wanted to evaluate the new Sequential Manual Gearbox transmission offered for the first time in a standard available only in the M3 previously , so we chose that instead of 's six-speed manual or five-speed Steptronic manumatic transmission. The car tightens its line in the corner with an ease that implies it was just joking about that understeer thing. It's a little tight, but much more comfortable than Miata that I didn't buy because of the fit. Have you had any problems with the car? The new Z4 rides and drives like a considerably more substantial vehicle, but it only weighs about 30 pounds more than the Z3.
After spending another two thousand dollars to fix the things the second owner couldn't afford to keep up with, it's like a new car again. The engines are bulletproof in terms of reliability. The mechanical portions are as beautiful as they were when I bought it. We'll see how long honeymoon lasts. I thought I would never replace my dream car! It was clothed in sheetmetal firmly rooted in the Industrial Age, calling to mind vintage streamlined locomotives. Overall, great car and I'm completely satisfied.
Turning circle is the best I have seen on a car like this so getting into the space is easy. Lots of looks, lots of grip and plenty of power with the low weight of the car. If you're buying a car, reliability is one of the most important considerations — alongside monthly payments, equipment and depreciation. After appraising the truck we were trading in and calling him 6 times, put a hold on it. The onboard computer's ergonomics were confoundedly complicated, frustrating and angering drivers and passengers alike. The sport button decreases power steering assist for more road feel and increases throttle tip in for more spirited driving. Whether the buying public finds the Z4's new styling an overdue change for the better or an impediment to the full enjoyment of its many technical improvements remains to be seen.
The new curvature of the back end helps make for more useable space, and the very generous trunk opening helps make loading easy. I scratched the front lip its low to the ground and you can easily foul a curb at the front of the car when youo first get it as the bonnet is sooooo much longer than most other cars. Snowbelt owners will need to spring for a set of snow tires if they want to keep driving their Z4s through the winter months. Our only complaint was that, with the top up, it reduced rear visibility to an uncomfortable degree, but it was easy to remove and stow. For every-occasion fun and serious speed, here are our favourite performance bargains that.
Most people think that it's newer than an '03. Thankfully we were already on the road and wasn't able to do that. While he enjoyed the interior amenities, he was well aware that this car wasn't exactly built for a comfortable, smooth ride on a long haul. Nothing personal, but in our case we decided it failed miserably at both tasks. Except in snow or ice you should leave it home. I always but 91, alittle more expensive but worth it.
What else could anyone think of the odd collection of lines, bumps, and creases woven throughout the body of this roadster? I'm not sure about the styling overall, but this may be the J. The one major flaw is the way in which the steering wheel dances wildly in your hands from road undulations. Surprisingly, both editors were impressed with the car's behavior on the Interstate they must've found freshly paved stretches , and one noted the navigation system's database was so complete, it even included some of the tracks and buildings in an automaker's proving grounds. Guess they didn't want to mess with a good thing--not even to give it the M package. So far only cost of maintanence has been oil changes and one set of new tires. Would definitely go back for future vehicle needs.
My Z4 is an '03, and people think it's a brand new car! It looks like it should be in a James Bond movie 'nuff said. It was with great anticipation that we took the keys of our long-term. The two engines even produce the same power and torque figures. The Z4 feels just right. Oil changes can be expensive, but changed only after every 10k miles.
