the last car i Had was a e46 m3 Vert in 2002 at 25, prior to that I was I had an Audi S8 so cars seem to be getting smaller not bigger on my list. Since then I havent had a car in the last 11 years (traveling 27 countries in 11 years) so buying a car just wasn't in the cards. 35 now picked up my 35is in Jan. Will need a DD sooner than later so narrowed it to either a RS6 Avant or M6 Grand Coupe some time next year.

Ive been wondering lately what the average age of a Z4 Owner really is?

Just curious!

I bought the Z4 2 months after turning 26, rewarding myself for working hard towards that promotion.

Whats your story?
You should organize something similar to what I've done here ...

Have a peek ====> Click to Open

BTW ... my next car might very well be another Z4 35is ... the latest one when I'm done with my M3 the Z4 is just such a fantastic car all around ...

Poll is a little misleading for me as I've had a Z4 for 8 years now:

28 bought my '05 3.0i
31 bought my '08 3.0si
36 just ordered my '14 IS

63 and counting. My first sports car was a Triumph Spitfire. No A/C and in the Summer in Florida I would have to turn the heat on in the Tr full blast to dissipate heat from the engine during stop and go rush hour. Around the same time I got my first BMW, a R75/5 motor cycle. Had 8 BMW bikes over the next 30+ years. During that time I also had a Porsche Super 90 (356), 2 Corvettes, and tried out my first BMW car, an X3. Since the X3 I've given up riding bikes, and have enjoyed an E85 and now my E89 3.0 6M/T. I traded in my 2006 Vette convertible on my current 2009 E89 which had 9K miles on it when I got it. It is a spectacularly beautiful car and a dream to drive. For me it is reminiscent of the 1960's XKE in-line 6 Jaguars...only nicer. It is strictly a fun car, and sits in my garage next to my daily driver a Subaru Outback. Love those boxer engines. :-)

Bought mine in the uk aged 30... My 4th BMW...A year later we have our first kid... Needless to say I've struggled so far to keep the car but I've decided to enjoy it for another year before I get into something more 'practical'

That's an impressive list!
My bro has a TTS.. How do you compare it with the Zed? I'm thinkin of an S4 avant next as we've now got a little baby and the fact that we get snow! Interested in knowing how you compare your BMW's with your Audi's... Maybe opening a can of worms here...

would be great if poles could do model and age. I wonder what is the spread by model vs age. 1 field of data is good but 2 makes for a better comparison.

If we find that younger owners have the 35i and 35is models and older ones have 20i and 23i, are we then going to ask for country and whether or not parents are involved to try and control for some confounding factors

We should swing for the fences with the can of worms and ask about lease vs. buy and automatic vs. manual, and 35is vs. 35i too

and j/k

Lurcher.. welcome glad you are ok
