2004 BMW Z4 - Greatest fun car I ever owned

This is my first BMW, and when I got it was beyond my expectations. Build quality is amazing; interior materials feel high quality, and fit snugly with each other. Seats are very comfortable and have a lot of adjustability. Ride quality is very focus on performance, but still forgiving on bumpy roads/surfaces. My model came loaded with a premium BOSE stereo, having 12 speakers. Comes with front, side, and knee airbags. Top goes up and down in less then 12 seconds. Visibility is very good, although the side pillars are hefty, as it is understandable they need extra sturdiness due to convertible factors of design. Engine is very smooth, very powerful, but yet still efficient, I usually get 34mpg on average. Engines is a work of art, shifting is super precise and gear ratios or spot on. ... (more)

One fault I was not crazy about is the stock wheels/tires, they are run flat tires which pickup a lot of noise and are very expensive to replace. There is no spare tire, so run flats are the only option on that car. BMW Service is great and it comes with free oil, brake, and loaner car. Overall it is a amazing vehicle! One nugget that I like about this car is how many BMW owners appreciate and are passionate about their cars. Every time I pull to a gas station or pass other BMW owners, they either honk, or stop and chat about their proud and joy. Its a one happy family!

I live in Pennsylvania in a mountain region of the state. I remember taking this car for my first ride, and once I hit that first twist on the road, it gave me the biggest smile I have ever had! I think my mouth was hurting that night from smiling so much, its a nice place to be..

BMW Z4 (E85)

Motor vehicle

The first generation of the BMW Z4 consists of the BMW E85 (roadster version) and BMW E86 (coupe version) sports cars. The E85/E86 generation was produced from 2002 to 2008.

The E85/E86 replaced the Z3 and is the third model in the BMW Z Series. Initial models were in the roadster (E85) body style, with the coupé (E86) body style being added in 2006.

As per the Z3, the E85/E86 was manufactured solely in Greer, South Carolina.

The M model - the Z4 M - is powered by the S54 straight-six engine.

In February 2009, the BMW Z4 (E89) began production as the successor to the E85/E86.

Development and launch[edit]

The E85 was designed by Danish BMW-designer Anders Warming from mid-1998 to the summer of 1999.[citation needed] The coupe models were designed by Tomasz Sycha.[1] The E85 designs were frozen on March 1, 2000.[2] The Z4 was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 2002,[3] and North American models went on sale in November of the same year (as the 2003 model year). European sales began in March 2003.[4]

Initial models consisted of the roadster body style powered by a 2.5L or 3.0L 6-cylinder engine.

Body styles[edit]

Roadster (E85)[edit]

The Z4 Roadster was launched in 2002 with the 2.5i and 3.0i six-cylinder models.[5] Transmission choices were a five-speed manual, six-speed manual, five-speed automatic and a six-speed SMG-IIautomated manual transmission.[6]

A four-cylinder model, the Z4 2.0i Roadster, was introduced for the European market in May 2005.

The drag coefficient is maximum of Cd=0.35.[7]

Coupé (E86)[edit]

BMW unveiled a conceptcoupé version of the Z4 at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show[8] The design of the Z4 and Z4 coupé has variously been ascribed to Anders Warming, Chris Bangle, the controversial former BMW Head of Design, and Adrian van Hooydonk, former BMW chief designer,[9][10] and BMW designer Tomasz Sycha. The design was approved in Summer of 2004 and frozen in December 2004. The company announced in 2005 that the two-door coupé would be available for production including the return of the M Coupé. The production car was introduced at the New York Auto Show in April 2006 and was available for sale in late May 2006.[11]

Thanks to its hatch design, the Z4 Coupé offers 10.1 cu ft (0.29 m3) of trunk space,[12] compared with 8.5 cu ft (0.24 m3) for the roadster.[13]

The Coupe's fixed roof increases torsional rigidity, resulting in a stiffness of 32,000 N⋅m (24,000 lb⋅ft) per degree of body twist on the coupe (compared to 14,500 N⋅m (10,700 lb⋅ft) per degree on the roadster), which improves turn-in and overall handling response.[14] The roof has a "double-bubble" contour which serves as an aerodynamic aid and offers more headroom than the roadster with the soft top closed. The Coupé has a sleek fastback rear window that slopes down to an integrated spoiler which is shaped to deliver downforce to the rear axle at high-speed.

The model range for the Coupé was more limited than the roadster, and consisted of the six-cylinder 3.0si and Z4 M model only.[15][16] Transmission choices were a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic with shift paddles mounted on the steering column.

Chassis and body[edit]

Convertible (pre-facelift)

Compared with its Z3 predecessor, the Z4 is larger and has a stiffer chassis.[17] As per the Z3, the front suspension is a Macpherson strut design. The rear suspension uses a multi-link design, instead of the semi-trailing design used by the Z3. Some reviewers have criticised the ride quality for being too harsh, and observed excessive bump steer from the rear suspension.[18]

The Z4 used lightweight materials to offset the increased weight over the smaller Z3, such as an aluminum hood and suspension components, magnesium roof frame. Run-flat tires removed the need for a spare tire, which reduces weight and allows for a larger trunk.[19]

Equipment[edit]

The 6-cylinder engines included all-alloy construction, variable valve timing (double-VANOS), and throttle by wire. Safety technology included four-wheel disc brakes and electronic stability control, incorporating ABS and traction control.

An optional "Sport Package" included added stiffer and lower suspension, 18 inch wheels, and sport tuned electronic steering, throttle and shift parameters ("Dynamic Driving Control").[20]

Electric power steering replaced the traditional hydraulic power steering used by the Z3.[21][22] The power assist is speed-sensitive, allowing for easier maneuvering at low speeds. The steering has been criticised for lacking feedback.[23] However, the Z4 M uses hydraulic power steering, and has been judged as having a more direct and communicative feel to the steering.[24]

In 2002 a 6-speed SMG gearbox was offered as an option on the 2.5 and 3.0 roadsters.[25][26]

Transmissions[edit]

The available transmissions were:

Z4 M versions[edit]

Main article: BMW M Coupé and Roadster

The Z4 M Coupe/Roadster was introduced in 2006 and is powered by the S54 straight-six engine shared with the E46 M3. The S54 was also on the Ward's 10 Best Engines list for 2001 through 2004.[38] The engine in the North American Z4 M models are rated at 330 hp (246 kW) at 7,900 rpm, 3 hp less than the North American M3.[39] In other markets, the power output is the same 252 kW (338 hp) as the M3. The engine had BMW double VANOS system and a compression ratio of 11.5:1. The torque generated by the engine amounted to 355 N⋅m (262 lb⋅ft) at 4,500 rpm. The torque was available from 2,500 rpm.

The Z4 M uses hydraulic power steering, unlike the electric power steering used by the rest of the Z4 range.[39] Other changes include a wider front track, revised front suspension, wider tires (measuring 225/45 at the front, 255/40 at the rear), and steering geometry.[39]

The M coupe's production began at the Spartanburg BMW plant in Greer on 4 April 2006.

Special models[edit]

Alpina Roadster S (2004–2006)[edit]

Main article: Alpina Roadster S

The Alpina Roadster S is a high-performance iteration of the pre-facelift Z4 introduced at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show. Manufactured by German automobile manufacturer Alpina, the Roadster S was assembled at the manufacturer's Buchloe plant from body-in-white sent by the Spartanburg BMW factory. The Roadster S was produced for two years (2004 to 2005) before production was halted due to stricter emission regulations stopping engine supplies. The Roadster S was available in two trims, those being Standard and Luxury with the Luxury trim adding more creature comforts and bigger wheels over the Standard trim. The car had a claimed top speed of 272 km/h (169 mph) and accelerated to 97 km/h (60 mph) from a standstill in 5.1 seconds.

Concept Coupé Mille Miglia (2006)[edit]

Concept Coupé Mille Miglia 2006 at the BMW Museumin Munich

The Concept Coupé Mille Miglia is a concept car inspired by the BMW 328 Mille Miglia Touring Coupé. It was unveiled at the 2006 Mille Miglia rally in Italy.[40]

Using the Z4 M Coupé's mechanical components, the concept car is 23 cm (9 in) longer, 14 cm (6 in) wider but 4 cm (2 in) flatter than the Z4 M Coupé. Other features of the concept car include 20-inch alloy wheels with 245/40R20 tyres, permanently integrated sidewalls, swing-up cockpit, an LED headlight panel, silver-coloured carbon-fibre reinforced plastic body and an interior constructed from stainless steel, untreated cowhides and Lycra fabric.[41]

The vehicle was designed by Anders Warming.[42]

Motorsport[edit]

Endurance racing[edit]

BMW Z4 M Coupé of Petronas Syntium team at the 2008 Merdeka Endurance Race

Dieter Quester, Dirk Werner, Jamie Campell-Walter and Tim Mullen won the Silverstone Britcar 24-Hour race with a BMW Z4 M Coupé.[55] The unit of the racing version is a modified version of the S54B32 3.2-litre straight-six engine, producing approximately 294 kW (394 bhp). The car is made by BMW's M Division and called the Z4 M Coupé Motorsport.[56]

In the 2008 Super Taikyu Endurance Series in Japan, the Petronas Syntium Team entered two Z4M cars.[57] The cars dominated the series by taking first and second at every race, finishing the Super Taikyu 1 class in first and second place to win both the championship and drivers title. The Petronas Syntium Team earned 277 points, compared to the next placed team on 98 points.[58] The cars were driven by established and popular drivers such as Fariqe Hairuman, Nobuteru Taniguchi, Masataka Yanagida, Manabu Orido and father and son pairing of Hans-Joachim Stuck and Johannes Stuck.[59]

The team of Bas Leinders secured pole position at the 2011 24 Hours of Spa in their Z4.[60] This team did not finish, however the Z4 of Dirk Werner came 2nd in the race.

Super GT[edit]

In August 2008, a modified Z4 debuted in Round 6 of the Super GT season,[61] marking BMW's return to the series after the M3 was retired from the JGTC series. It was run by the Studie team and participated in the GT300 class. The car was powered by a detuned version of the S62 V8 engine from the E39 M5. The Z4 competed in the 2009 Super GT season (aside from than Sepang Race),[62] and they would replace their H-pattern to a sequential transmission, as well as their S62 Engine with an S65B40 after race 3, after they had suffered an unrepairable engine blow in race 2 at Suzuka.[63] The car was retired at the end of the 2009 season, with its E89 Z4 GT3 successor making its debut in the 2010 season.[64]

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
