Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Nissan 370Z, the BMW 430 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 430 as you will with the Nissan 370Z, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW 430 is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan 370Z. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 430 will cost more in transportation costs than the Nissan 370Z.

Dimensions
The BMW 430 is about the same width as the Nissan 370Z. If you go with the BMW 430, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Nissan 370Z.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 430 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Nissan 370Z.

Handling
The BMW 430 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Nissan 370Z, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 430 is significantly less powerful than the Nissan 370Z. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW 430 offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan 370Z, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 430 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan 370Z.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 430 than that of the Nissan 370Z.
