BMW has been building roadsters for over 80 years - and that showed with this improved second generation Z4. It was model that matured extremely well, slowly and methodically developing into an all-rounder that's now tough to beat as a used buy if you're looking for a car of this kind from this era. In fact, we can't help feeling that this is probably the ideal car of its kind for most potential buyers. True, it isn't the driver's machine that, say, a Porsche Boxster can be but it gets close enough for many likely customers to start prioritising the lower pricing and security-minded metal folding roof that come with this BMW.
What it all means is that though the Z4 might not be the first car you look at when choosing a sports roadster, look at it you must. It's just too good not to.
