2008 BMW Z4 Overview

The 2008 BMW Z4 3.0si is a two-seat hatchback coupe that offers engaging driving dynamics along with BMW's excellent reputation for quality. Previously offered only as a convertible, the coupe joined the Z4 line in 2007. Reviews generally say that the coupe has greatly improved upon the roadster's handling and exterior styling. Forbes finds it ideal for anyone who wants "a quick and agile, two-seat coupe." Plus, test drivers point out that the Z4 can double as a daily driver because of its versatile rear hatchback design. However, those looking to hold more than one passenger should look elsewhere.

The 2008 BMW Z4 3.0si comes with a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine and a manual transmission. An automatic transmission is optional. The Z4 is also available as a convertible.

  • "The Z4 convertible and coupe are generally outstanding. But the Z4 coupe is more of a sports car." -- Chicago Sun-Times
  • "Unlike Porsche with its Cayman and Boxster twins, BMW does not charge more for its Z4 coupe than its convertible." -- Car and Driver
