Pros: "Blast to drive, fast, handles great"

Cons: "Cramped cockpit, rough ride"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Had a 2003 M3 prior to this. This car is a lot more fun and about as close to a race car as you can get! Corners well, excellent acceleration, and looks great while driving it. Cons are that it is a very small cockpit, and it's a loud, somewhat rough ride. You can really feel the road underneath you. Back wheels may kick out on you if your pushing it. This is not a great everyday driver by any means, but if you want something to drive on weekends in the summer and have a blast while doing it, this is your car! Also somewhat rare, BMW stopped making m roadsters in the mid 2000s."

Cons: "electronic steering in hot and humid conditions"

"I have owned this 3.0 since January 2005 and have 55k miles on her. It still puts a smile on my face every time you drive it. There is no other car with such fantastic looks. Despite it's age, I still receive many compliments on the car. Handling is great although the stiffness of the ride will find you wanting to get out after 3 hours of driving. The cabin is not that quiet but the handling, response and engine note makes up for it. Mechanically the only thing that I had to replace were the rear springs which were both cracked (and I didn't even notice it) during a recent routine inspection. Probably due to the NJ roads which were horrible. The only issue I have had was the electronic steering which sticks when the car is parked in the sun when the weather was extremely hot. However it has disappeared since moving to Las Vegas. I suspect the issue is related to a combination of heat and humidity on the East Coast. I continue to highly recommend this car and have no plans at all to get rid of her unless I have an unfortunate experience (accident)."

"Years ago I owned a muscle car. Bought it new in 1969. This BMW is so much faster than that muscle car. I just love my Z4."

I have owned from bug eyed sprites to XKE, this all wrapped up into one great car and reliable. The best best performance sports car for value out there. No regrets at all."
