Trim level

sDrive
This is the standard trim level for the Z4 in 18i and 20i guise, and the amount of kit you get depends on the engine. For the 18i it means you get the basics, including alloy wheels, air-conditioning, xenon headlights, Bluetooth and a USB input. Additions for the 20i include climate control, leather upholstery, automatic headlights and wipers – this is our favourite Z4 engine and trim combination. Sat-nav and parking sensors – which you may expect to come as standard – are pricey options for both models.
M Sport
This is the sportier of the two main trim levels for the Z4 and, as with sDrive, what you get depends on the engine. For all versions it means bespoke interior and exterior trim, including large alloy wheels. It also brings firmer M Sport suspension, which gives a very stiff ride, although you can de-specify this for no extra cost; we’d recommend doing so. In 18i guise M Sport includes the basics, such as air-conditioning, leather upholstery, xenon headlights, Bluetooth and a USB input. For 20i and 28i models it adds climate control, automatic headlights and wipers, while 35i versions also get electric seat adjustment and metallic paint. In most respects M Sport trim is equivalent to what you get with most rivals, but sat-nav and parking sensors are pricey options.
sDrive 35is
The range-topping Z4 35is comes in a stand-alone trim that includes all the luxury and cosmetic kit you get with M Sport, so it’s pretty comprehensive. Unfortunately BMW doesn’t give you the option of de-selecting M Sport suspension for this model, while sat-nav and parking sensors still cost extra. At this price they should be included and this model’s already high cost makes it one to avoid, in our opinion.
