Mein Auto: Z4 Sdrive30i
I'm 25, got my new sdrive30i arriving next week, can't wait, reading through these forums about 50 times a day! Wanted to take the leap before family and mortgages materialise and make me become sensible. I'm 100% not the standard demographic though- my artistic and creative sides are non-exisent. Definitely an outlier here

Good move! Was going to buy a corvette in '79, met my sweeti, and after 2 houses and 2 kids, finally got the car of my dreams after 32 years. It was worth the wait!

'11 Z4 35i

Wanted on since I was actually 22. Couldn't afford one until I was 35 though. Now I am 38 and looking into m second one.. Most Z4s I see locally are driven by much older men though (or they look older). Grey hair mostly. Not sure why.. Maybe the excitement of driving one of the most exhilarating roadsters out there ages drivers fast! I know I have a few grey hairs from the experience myself. :-)

Looks like I need to represent for the ladies. I've only seen a couple other new Z4s on the streets of Atlanta and they've been driven by women that may be in their 40s or 50s. I'm in my 30s and on my third roadster. S2000, '07 Z4si and now my '09 35i. Don't need a backseat as we have two other cars.

My M3 driving husband says my car is just as much fun as his.

Mein Auto: Z4 23i 2011
Just stumbled upon this thread as I flicking through the forum

I am probably the youngest person on here.

I am taking delivery of a brand new (11 plate) Z4 235i soon (wanted the 30i but insurance quotes were ridiculus at 5100 wheras 235i was 3200) - probably next week - havent got an exact date yet.

At only 21 years old - I feel like the new boy of the exclusive z4 group.

Your husband is completely right I can attest to that having driven in this order M3 (2002), Z4 30is (2008), Z4 35i (2009) and now M3 (2011).

I am the old fellow, however, still young at heart

Same here. Congratulations, enjoy your new toy.

I also looked at insurance for the 3.0L, like you say - a tad steep! In hindsight, perhaps I should have got a night job just to pay for the insurance, haha.

Post some pics once you've taken delivery. Out of interest, what does the 5 mean in 235i? When ordering mine it was simply 23i.

I used to call it a 23i but thought that must be wrong cuz it is 2.5Litre. So I kinda just joined a 5 on the end to make it more like my previous car which is a 135i renault.

After consulting the documention I can confirm it is sDrive 23i in the real world, but for some reason still sounds better as 235i in my head.

I will get some pics on from my phone app as soon as I go to collect.

I can't tell you how old the average Z4 owner is, but I can tell you that a human baby conceived way back when this thread was started, will be 3 months old tomorrow.

I'm not your avrerage Z driver. I like to think of myself as a better than average driver. Do you still need my age or will that throw of the results?

45. The nest will be empty in couple of years and we have two other cars to choose from if needed. Works fine as a daily driver.

Shout out BimmerKat and BEAMN

"Males, 35-50, fairly high income, typically single or empty-nesters"
Female, 39, average income, married

"Z4 owners also trend toward the creative, artistic, and individualist end of the personality spectrum" - I'm none of those either... but I sure like driving my Z4!!

I am 33 and wifey is...on second thought...better I not say. We are on the younger side but out of our 20's obviously. Have the 2011 3.0 sport pkg with paddle shifters and an 08 550i. The Z4 is an increadible machine though I preffer the amenities in the 550i. We are the neighborhood DINK's (Dual Income No Kids). Having fun while we are still able to with a mortgae in So-Cal, 3 cars (06 toyota 4Runner is #3), 2 dogs, no kids yet. Neighbors tell me all the cars will go away once we have crumb snatchers . Time will tell!

So, this is something that I get teased about pretty often. Even one of my business partners gives me a pretty hard time about it. I got my first Z ('08 ///M Roadster - NAV, heated seats, Premium) when I was 26. Now at 28 I picked up my '11 Z4 (Premium, ///M Sport, 19's, NAV, heated seats, premium sound, convenience, Sat radio.
