Engadget Review

The BMW Z4 M40i is the automaker’s love letter to roadsters that hits nearly all of the right notes. Its tech on the road is impressive but runs into some issues when you try to get CarPlay to work. Still, that doesn’t take away from BMW building a proper roadster that’ll appease enthusiasts and regular drivers alike. But again, that smaller engine will probably be the better purchase.
