The E85 generation Z4 (2002-2008) puts a much more masculine face on BMW’s diminutive 2 seater and looks decades more advanced than the Z3 it replaced. Under the cool flame sculpted hood you get a 3.0 liter M54 inline-6 that pushes out a respectable (for 2004) 228 horsepower and 228 ft-lbs of smooth torque. Under your right elbow you get a 6-speed manual gearbox, which is the correct choice for your shifting needs. Find this 2004 BMW Z4 3.0i offered for $11900 in Garland, TX via cargurus.com.
