Mein Auto: 2011 Z4 35i
I'm thrilled to be able to own a semi exclusive 2 seat roadster for 60K. I love the cars styling and convertible hardtop. Mainly I like the 6sp MT tied to a 300+ HP engine! Probably only 6,000 units sold worldwide. Other similar european cars range 80-200K+ for unit sales this low. The Z4 is a small niche line for BMW mainly to compete with the MB SLK line. I doubt that BMW will end production because of small sales numbers, it's obviously priced for a small volume break even point. Even if it were priced like a 3 series the big volume market would never materialize. With only 2 seats, no big technology leader, as the 5 or 7 series, & no mass market appeal as the 3 or X series.

Perfect for me and much more practical to drive & service than some of the other offerings, despite the few shortcomings. It's a keeper for me.
