Best quality and most fun car I've ever owned.
Twelve years old, still looks and drives like a new car. Handling is fantastic. Road noise and wind has never been engineered so well. Top down at 80mph is fatigue free; you can hear the radio with ease!

The electronics package is severely antiquated. It's getting pretty close to useless after 12 years. Bluetooth does not reliably pair with new technology. The screen is low resolution and looks terrible by today's standards. If I were buying a 2005 Z4 today, I would avoid the electronics. You can't criticize BMW for this -- it was the best of 2005.

Pros
Beautiful, fun to drive, super reliable.
It induces joy and happiness like a drug.

Cons
Antiquated electronics package. If you're buying used, get one with the electronics stuff.
Run-flat tires are expensive.
Very low to the ground means speed bumps are hazardous.

Fun drive
Great fun drive; but I wish to have a little more room. And wish the Bmw lifted it up from the ground a couple more inches.

Pros
Fast and powerful.

Cons
No a lot room inside, and to low from the ground.

Best used sports car value on earth
I bought my used 2005 Z4 3.0i in 2012 for peanuts. Seems like there are too many on the market. I love it -- handles great, really quiet at highway speed fully open. BMW knows how to control air flow. Outstanding. I'd buy another in a flash.
