|BMW Z4 – 2004
Overall Rating: 3.5
Experience Date:Apr 06, 2004
Low and sporty, convertible, general fun BMW driveableness
2.5L engine is underpowered, marginally overpriced
I’m sold on the fact that BMW is a fine car manufacturer. When I get in one and drive, there is just a different feeling of driving one. The 2.5 Liter engine in the Z4 (and the Z3 for that matter) seems underpowered and fitting the niche of someone who just wants a roadster and doesn’t care about the power. I think BMW could come down on this if they want to, but they won’t, because of the market niche it is filling and probably because they feel it would cheapen the brand a little.
