    Z4 s35i vs A5 2.0T Cab, which will you pick?

    Both preowned, about same age, A5 has MTMed stage 1 to 276bhp.

    This being a BMW forum, I suspect the opinions will be skewed towards the Z4. The Audi, however, has 4 seats which will come in handy as I have two kids.

    This is a 2nd car for the family. Would appreciate anyone who has compared both the above cars before to share their views as well. Thanks!

    hi Chicane,

    if its family 2nd car.... then i go for Z4s3.5i... hard-top convertible, Better handling, better performance but if u want the whole family to go for a "topless" drive then go for Audi... shd get the S5 cab for comparison not the A5... BMW is still the Sheer Driving Pleasure! haha

    Well since you mentioned kids I suppose the A5. Unless you wanna make double trips each time to be fair to both (since you really can't ferry them both at the same time with the Z4).

    Besides, isn't it rather satisfying to be able to enjoy a convertible with your family?

    U read my mind! But the lure of the inline 6 is strong! Unless we are looking at the s5, the a5 is still a 4 pot.

    Very hard to compare a roadster and a cabrio...... you should be comparing the Z4 against the TT Roadster, or the A5 against the 32X cabrio.....

    Since it is the second car, the need for the rear seats should be seriously considered - do you need 2+2 on this "second" car?

    If yes, go for the cabrio.

    Go for s35i

    Good excuse not to drive the kids. They mess up the car. C3PO say one

    Good point, Z4 against the TT, I'll take the Z4 anytime. A5 against any cabrio, I'll take the A5 in the blink of an eye.

    the heart says the twin turbo inline 6, the mind wants the rear two seats. the wallet says either is fine since abt same price. how?

    My girls are well trained, they know it's a crime to mess up daddy's car.
