The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The TT is a little more engaging to drive than before, but it doesn’t stand out in the crowd quite like the original one did when it was new. The 2009 BMW Z4 isn't a lightweight, basic roadster anymore, but it's a comfortable and exhilarating touring sports car that leaves a lot of flexibility.
