Expert Quotes:

Z4is buyers get a magnificent-sounding and specially tuned exhaust that sings a raspy melody best experienced with the top down, of course
Car and Driver

door sills, gearlever, floor mats and even the driver's footrest all carry the evocative M logo
Edmunds

The major fault of the 'box's setup are the paddle shifters...They're confusing as hell, not to mention unnatural, cheap in hand, and look as if they've been pulled off an early 1990s Big Foot Power Wheels.
Motor Trend

The iDrive interface, although improved from earlier versions, is still not the most intuitive.

With prices starting at $48,950 and moving quickly upward from there into the upper-$50,000s, topping out well of $70,000, you'd expect the BMW Z4 to be well-equipped. Fortunately, it is--for the most part--and it can be upgraded to even more feature-packed levels.

Standard equipment in the Z4's cabin includes: cruise control, Bluetooth, audio with iPod/USB support, HD radio, heated mirrors, adaptive xenon headlights, keyless entry, automatic climate control, BMW Ambiance lighting, rain-sensing wipers, and more.

The upgrades list is where things get more interesting. A la carte items include heated front seats, park distance control, automatic high beams, and BMW Concierge services. Most of the best upgrades are bundled into packages: the Technology Package adds navigation with voice-command, real-time traffic information, BMW Online access, BMW Apps functions, enhanced USB and Bluetooth smartphone integration, and more; the M Sport Package (non-sDrive35is models) brings many performance-themed upgrades, including an M steering wheel, anthracite headliner, Adapative M Suspension, M interior trim in Aluminum Carbon Shadow, anthracite wood trim, and a range of wheel and exterior paiant options; the Premium Sound package adds premium hi-fi audio and a one-year subscription to satellite radio; and a number of appearance packages can bring extended leather, unique Hyper Orange accents, and more.

BMW Apps is particularly interesting (bundled with the Technology Package), bringing streaming radio services like Pandora and Stitcher as well as Facebook, Twitter, and Wiki Local access on-the-go.

Conclusion

With more features and equipment than ever, the 2014 BMW Z4 is well outfitted--but the price can rise quickly as options packages are added.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
