If you are interested in a small, two-door sports coupe, you will want to take a look into a used BMW Z4. BMW is known for making great vehicles, but they typically have a high sticker price due to that reason. Buying a used model will help save you thousands of dollars while obtaining a great vehicle at the same time.
The BMW Z4 was originally introduced to the market in 2003 with both a 2.5i and 3.0i trim level. For this particular year, the 2.5i came with a 2.5-Liter inline 6-cylinder engine that produced 184 horsepower, while more-powerful 3.0i's 3.0-Liter engine produced 225 horsepower. If you are interested in obtaining a first-generation Z4, you will be looking at a sticker price of anywhere between about $12,000 and $20,000 depending largely on the year and mileage of the vehicle, along with the condition.
Available in 2006, the Z4 was made as a roadster and is rated slightly higher than the earlier generation of Z4. From 2006 and on, the Z4 was produced in both the 3.0i and 3.0si models. The 3.0i model features a 3.0-Liter inline 6-cylinder engine that produces 215 horsepower, while the 3.0si increases horsepower to 255. For models of 2006 and later, the price will typically range anywhere from $20,000 to $33,000. This proves to be a great deal, as the 2009 model's price jumps up to roughly $43,000.
The driving experience in both models and all years alike is likely to be great, as the vehicle is rated very high in respect to performance and drive-ability. If you are in the market for a luxurious 2-door roadster with impressive performance and features, you will want to be sure to check out a used BMW Z4.
