Pros

Big performance in a small package; major exterior redesign for 2010; iDrive


Model Highlights

With the of the coupe model's exit, there are just two trim levels for the Z4 in 2010, both with creatively spelled names: the sDrive30i and sDrive35i. They're both 2-seater convertibles with straight-six engines and rear-wheel drive, but the 35i features a twin-turbo, direct-inject unit that's capable of 306 hp and 295 lb-feet of torque, compared with the 258 hp and 228 lb-ft of the 30i. A 6-speed manual is standard in both cars, but the 30i offers an optional 6-speed auto, while the 35i can upgrade to a dual-clutch 7-speed auto. Both automatic transmissions have steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Four-wheel disc brakes and ABS are standard on the Z4, as is TPMS. Rollover protection, traction control, brake assist, stability control, daytime, auto-on headlights and active knee protection are standard too. Driver and passenger front and side air bags are also included. The insulated top, should you ever want to put it up, can do so in just 20 seconds.

BMW packs a lot of luxury into the small Z4 package, and a lot of the goodies are standard equipment. Rain-sensing wipers, heater mirrors, MP3 and HD capable sound system, keyless entry, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel all come with either trim level. Rear parking assist, heated seats, a navigation system and a hard disk drive for the sound system are optional.

The 35i does have a few standard features not found on the 30i, in addition to 50 more horsepower. Its 17-inch wheels are slightly wider than those on the 30i, and it comes with air conditioning, climate control and leather seats, whereas those are options on the base-level Z4. The Sport Package increases the top speed limiter, adds adaptive M suspension for even sportier handling, swaps out the tires for 18-inch run-flat tires and includes sport seats.


Model News

The 2010 BMW Z4 got an overhaul in the design department, courtesy of an all-woman design team at BMW headquarters. The roadster features elegant lines and, in the top-of-the-line sDrive35i, more than 300 hp from the new 3.0-liter engine. The coupe has been removed from the lineup, and now features a folding hard top instead for use in any weather.


Value Writeup

The entry-level sDrive30i has just as much style and nearly as much power as its big brother, the sDrive35i, but with a starting price $900 lower. Both cars pack an inline 6-cylinder under the hood, and the hard top extends the Z4's drivability past summer.

Summary
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 128i Coupe, 128i Convertible, 328i Sedan, 328i xDrive Sedan, 328i Coupe, 328i Convertible, 328i Sports Wagon and Z4 sDrive 30i, 2011-2012 135i Coupe, 135i Convertible, 335i Sedan, X5 xDrive 35i, and X6 xDrive 35i, 2011 335i xDrive Sedan, 335i Coupe, 335i Convertible, 528i Sedan, 535i Sedan, 535i xDrive Sedan, X3 xDrive 28i, and X3 xDrive 35i, 2010 X3 xDrive 30i, and X5 xDrive 30i, 2012 640i Coupe, and 640i Convertible and 2010-2012 535i Gran Turismo vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the bolts that secure the housing for the variable camshaft timing adjustment (VANOS) unit can loosen over time and may possibly break.

Consequence
If the bolts loosen or break the engine may have reduced power or stall. An engine stall increases the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the four VANOS housing bolts for both VANOS units (intake and exhaust), free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in May 2014. In addition, owners of approximately 170,172 model year 2010-2012 BMW vehicles equipped with inline 6 cylinder engines not covered by this recall, will receive an extended warranty to address this condition. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-525-7417.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
BMW is recalling certain model year 2008-2012 1-Series coupes and convertibles manufactured December 2007 through July 2011; and 2007-2011 3-Series coupes and convertibles manufactured March 2007 through July 2011; 2007-2011 3-Series sedans manufactured March 2007 through October 2011; 2007-2011 3-Series sports wagons manufactured March 2007 through June 2011; and 2009-2011 Z4 vehicles manufactured March 2009 through June 2011. The connector for the positive battery cable connector and the corresponding terminal on the fuse box may degrade over time. Over time, the high current flow and heat from electrical resistance may lead to a breakage of the connection, and a loss of electrical power to the vehicle.

Consequence
If there is a loss of electrical power to the vehicle, the vehicle may unexpectedly stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the positive battery cable connector and secure it with an improved method, free of charge. The recall began on March 13, 2013. Owners may call BMW at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov
