The boot capacity. We packed enough for a 2 week holiday for two of us with room to spare and still able to put the top down.

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
The car says that I know what I like and that I don't want to be the same as everyone else - I chose a limited edition colour rather than the stock white everyone else seems to want now.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Most people are incredibly complimentary. In fact, one of my colleagues is now looking at the Z4 as an option when he changes his car. I have had two adverse responses but both were drivers of older cars so I'm not as sure what drive the daft comments!

Would you buy this car again and why?
This is my third convertible Z4. I can't imagine this will be any different when I next change.

What are you likely to buy next?
Another Z4 but I've got another 3 years as I tied in to a 4 year term this time. I felt 3 years went too quickly and I wasn't quite ready to change.

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
May 2013

Did you get a good deal and why?
I felt I got a good deal. Ultra low interest rate and a few extras including tyre insurance.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
It's my third one - no other car I've taken out delivers the same drive and experience for this price.

What was the dealer like?
Helpful and communicative.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Fantastic. Good 0-60 but also great mid range torque. No flat spots or delays. It's easy to control and drive round the towns and cities, but cruises well on motorways.

What's it like to park?
Easy, although my husband seems to struggle with the length of the bonnet!

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?

What's most practical about your car?
The boot capacity. We packed enough for a 2 week holiday for two of us with room to spare and still able to put the top down.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Communication pack - the hands free capability for the phone in particular. Useful as I do a lot of driving.
