"Only owner since 9/2005. Car never was abused or driven very hard. Always garaged and detailed constantly...this car glows. No accidents. Everything is in perfect mechanical working order. Engine purrs, 20mpg city, 31mpg highway. No cracks in tan leather power driver/passenger seats. Only four very little marks on exterior. Top in perfect working condition. Comes with high quality front end bib and with top-inserts. Can't say more about a great little car..."

Great car, Had it forever.

"I have a 2004 Z4 2.5i. Its had tons of problems over the miles since its almost 160k miles. It gets creaky when driven over 80mph. It has several of the same problems as every other BMW i.e.(Oil Leaking, electronic failures, transmission problems.) The convertible is designed in a weird way where water can get into the motor and damage it. Its great for driving and cornering. Its a fun car to drive on a sunny day and I'm making it a project car by working on everything. (Breaking My Wallet, BMW) Its transmission shot after 100k. When it gets humid or hot the steering is unpredictable (it jerks sometimes, or gets really hard to control) Its a rough ride but if you enjoy it, have at it! Some of the pieces on the body are irreplaceable. (Its so old for a BMW,it is hard to get parts for) If I could choose a z4 vs an M3 of the same year. Id choose a Z4 because the look is timeless, Its a beautifully designed car with curves and accents. It can be aggressive when it wants to be and my girlfriend loves this car. (Note: I'm 18) It was owned by a stranger and my father."

"The car is rarely driven and meticulously maintained, yet is spends more time at the dealer. Everything is poor quality showing way more age than is should for a well kept car."

Very responsive and fun car to drive.

"My 2003 BMW Z4 3.0i is very responsive and a hoot to drive. It sits very low to the ground and a bit of a challenge for a big old boy like me to get into and out of...I have learned how to enter and exit with ease...The standard run flat tires and a bit rough and I decided to replace with regular tires with a Continental Conti kit for minor tire issues on the road....It gets 18-19 mpg in the city and 26-28 mpg on the road...It is very dependable and has had few repairs except for brakes, tires, battery, and routine maintenance..."

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."
