Jonathan Spira continues on his journey we introduced you to several days ago here. He is crossing Austria in search of some of the country ‘s finest wines in a Z4 sDrive23i.

“First order of business: top down. The top takes only 20 seconds to retract and it appears far more robust than earlier generation retractable hardtops, which seemed a bit fragile in construction. The interior features generous amounts of space; even with the top up, I never felt claustrophobic. With the top down, which is the way this car is meant to be driven, the cabin isn’t overly noisy or drafty; with the top up, you would never know you were in a convertible. ”

For more of his take on the Z4 and of course the wine visit him over at Executive Road Warrior.
