2003 BMW Z4

by Oneoveach on 12-20-2014
Never should have solt it!
I owned a Z4 for 8 years. Great car. Solid. Never should have sold it. I did have to get the steering column replaced. There was a manufacturing defect which resulted in the steering "sticking" when the car was driven in extreme heat. BMW never admitted to the defect but it was eventually replaced under extended (non BMW) warranty. Quiet ride with the insulated soft top. Run flat tires a re a little pricey.

Z4 Manual: An Amazing Driving Experience
Bought this car new and still own it in 2014. The worst thing about driving this car is arriving at my destination because it means that the thrill of driving the car is over until the next time. Love the manual shift, clutching is terrific and car has never given me a spec of trouble nor has it ever needed any repairs.

2003 BMW Z4

The Ultimate Driving Machin
Its true......this BMW Z4 is probably still as tight as from the day it was new. It welcomes curves in the road, stops on a dime, and gets over 30 mpg on highway doing it! The comfortable 2500 mile trek from its home in San Bernadino California along parts of Route 66 to Ontario was a terrific adventure. The heated seats came in handy as we got closer to home, and the nights became chilly. I have a 2004 BMW wagon as well-great cars!

2003 BMW Z4

Trim: 3.0L

2003 Z4 Roadster 3.0L If you love to drive.....
I can agree and relate to the comments from others here. Except for the tiny trunk one. It's unbelievable what I've managed to fit in this trunk and if that fails I could always drop the top for bigger items like 2x4x8 (Only once or twice).

I've driven this car for 8 years, almost 200k. I like to drive track and for distance (Halifax from Toronto straight through 14 hours and back the same way). The handling and weight of this ride is the best of BMW engineering, the pick up off the line can snap your head back and with the top down all summer the visibility is go-cart like. In sport mode you can pass easily, which is great for the drives up north. Not bad at the pumps, just not a hybrid. Good in the rain with the DCL feature, amazing with snow tires (hold down the DSL for full traction control). With the proper maintenance, I never had any major repair issues with the car. Just stay ahead of repairs by checking the fluids, tires and brakes every 3-6 months addressing any needs that come up and this car will put a smile on your face every time.

Not recommended for those who don't want to be connected to the road, get uncomfortable with strangers saying nice car all the time, Babies (Newborns that is - My wife added that one, but it can work with the easy airbag shut off and seat ready features, I'm losing this battle without one accident ever), and those over 250 lbs or over 6'2".

If you can get one its a great commuter and makes you want to keep driving. Drive with care as good drivers are rare.

2003 BMW Z4

Trim: SPECIAL
by BMW-Z4 on 05-17-2013
BMW Z4
This car has only been used in the summer months and mostly just for leisurely drives to enjoy the sun and fresh air. Because of the upgraded package, this Z4 has a unique look and receives many compliments and second looks. I always feel like a million dollars when cruising around. I have always been impressed with the quietness of the engine and complete reliability.

This car is definitely worth a look.

2003 BMW Z4

Trim: 3.0 Premium Sport
by Bill_the_Cat on 10-22-2012
Tough to beat the mix of performance, features, fuel economy and price
This is a great little track car, powerful straight 6 with excellent power to weight, and tremendous handling performance. Its low to the ground, with low profile tires and a very stiff suspension, so you feel every bump, but presumably you're looking for performance in a car like this, so don't complain! She behaves like an overpowered go-kart that's glued to the road. I had been considering several V8 sports cars when I bought this, but was sensitive to fuels economy at the time as this was my daily driver, and also wanted a convertible. I've never regretted it, I average 25MPG, and I do NOT drive it in an economical fashion! Even after many years, this car's looks are timeless. I sometimes think about what to do when it comes time to replace her, and over the years I've done some investigating, the Z4 (now Z4M) still is top of the charts for my needs. I wouldn't recommend wasting time with the 2.5 litre motor though, unless you just want it for looks, the 3.0 with sport pack was a must for me, and makes a lot of difference.

Pluses:
Mileage
Perfomance
Looks
Reliability
Value

Cons:
Run-Flat Tires (ride, cost)
Ride Comfort (I'm ok with it, the wife, not so much)
Repair cost (BMW is expensive when time to repair, but happens infrequently)
Tiny trunk/storage (you'll adapt!)
