What was parked in my driveway was a beautiful machine that delivers pure joy and satisfaction to whomever occupies the driver's seat. Too big, cheap interior, very common around town. Just fell in love with the feel and styling and haven't stopped having fun. I have not yet met up with any one able to take me on those red light street meets, and handelling is amazing giving you too much confidence in any manoeuvre. Any wheelspin usually gives a time almost half a second slower.
You can get great 0-60 times from tiny cars just because of their gearing gearbox, tyre size, diff ratio, etc. For what the Z4 M is small, nimble, powerful, reliable, usable trunk , I haven't found anything like it. The Pleasure of Shifting Gears Six Times Over The concept of a high-speed engine is particularly impressive whenever the torque available is converted into optimum thrust and power on the road by a short overall transmission ratio. Saying this vehicle is fun is like saying a plastic packet of honey in the hands of a 5-year-old is a mess. The cockpit is tailored consistently to the driver, with all controls and instruments placed perfectly on or around the steering wheel for supreme ergonomics.
If they still made them I would buy another in a second. Great car and still good for many more years. This car is fast on acceleration and handles superbly! Multi-function buttons featured as standard help the driver concentrate on the essential, operating the telephone or audio system at the touch of a finger, without having to take his hand off the steering wheel. Interior is small but comfy. Did they use a normal road with roadtires. It has been reliable with only failures or repairs being due to normal wear and tear.
The gps is much more precise. Very tight feel and rather hard to drive smoothly unless highly skilled with clutch. It's nimble like a Miata, but with actual horsepower and torque! You can also see that in the data of those links. Partly because there are no circumstances recorded. Or even more sophisticated stuff? I am only putting it for sale because too many people mention it's time to move on to something else.
The weird thing is that it's kind of a tough car to love in spite of all the driving joy. The F1 knowledge says that 7% wheelspin is optimal, but in practice, you want zero wheelspin. Needed a crankase vent valve replaced and supposed common problem. Engine has awesome power and revvs to 8 grand! Acceleration to 60 mph comes in 4. The run you think is fastest usually is the slowest. Close gear ratios and 6 speeds offer many variations in shifting.
Output per liter is 103 bhp, giving the Z4 M Coupe a power-to-weight ratio of just 9. This is absolutely the best and most satisfying car I have owned and driven. But in the end it's less interesting in how fast the car is and more interesting in how fast the driver is only the slow drivers look at how fast the car is Wow! Sometimes the displayed 0-60 time even is a 0-62 time! S54 inline 6 engine won International Engine of the Year from 2001-06. Easily handles curves at twice the posted speed. Without doubt, its prize-winning 3. Sucks gas and small tank so often stopping to fill.
You won't often see another on the road. Uncompromising, purist, and extremely powerful, this two-seater offers an unparalleled experience of undiluted dynamism both in everyday traffic and on the race track. Also to Guidok's point the conditions to get those times are very specific and often brutal I'm way more impressed by the in gear acceleration times of cars as that's where it really counts - overtaking from 50-70, etc. Short gearshift travel, precise action of the shift lever, and close increments between the six gears — these are the typical features of this outstanding transmission. It's hard to get into and out of, tall people have a hard time getting comfortable in it, and I had so much trouble seeing out of it I felt like the whole car was a blind spot. Brakes, rotors, battery, alternator, spark Plugs. Did they use a stopwatch or a 10hz gps timer? The one source can be over half a second short on the other.
. On a twisty country road with the top down on a sunny day or punching it past a stupid Mustang on a 4-lane. That's some pretty impressive times, I had no idea the Z4 3. The previous owner did something funky with the headlights but otherwise there have been no mechanical issues. Handling is superbe on twisty roads or track. .
