2012 BMW Z4 Summary

The BMW Z4 reminds us of a more intimate and engaging version of the 6 Series Convertible. The folding hardtop offers the best of coupe and roadster forms with few of the drawbacks of either. The Z4 sDrive35is carries a hefty premium, but it is the most powerful and the best performer. We recommend the base Z4 sDrive28i with its lively engine, especially with the manual gearbox.
