A beautiful ultimate driving machine!

2003 BMW Z4 2.5i

The z-4 is a great automobile to drive. The reliability is good although when servicing is required it is pricey. This car is a dream to drive for long distances. It is very comfortable. The tires are run flats eliminating any fear of being stranded due to flat tires. Replacing the tires is expensive. The engine is considered 'bulletproof ', I haven't had any issues with the engine. Gas mileage is good at 25 mpg/city and 32 mpg/highway. This car is definitely a 'summer 'car. The car has traction and stability management systems that make travel on snowy/icy roads hazardous. The anti lock brakes are very effective when needed. The convertible top is easy to operate. I had a little issue with other drivers who wanted to race. The road handling on dry or wet pavement is fantastic. There is a reason that it is said that BMW the ultimate driving machine! The scenes where you see this car doing burnouts or otherwise smoking the tires are false. The engine management system will not allow this. The car has plenty of power but it is controlled. It has a very nice ride and is very quiet..

Older car with very few miles

2003 BMW Z4 2.5i

My vehicle has a lot of issues since it's an older car. The front windows are not able to open and close properly, and one of them is stuck open. There is also an issue with the gas gauge, and there is a light that is permanently on that says to service the engine. The locks are also a bit of an issue, the key doesn't exactly work.
