The BMW Z4
vs.
The 2001 Chevrolet Corvette
Lets look at the BMW Z4
BMW Website
I am considering purchasing the this car
because it looks awesome and is very fast.
It also is affordable to buy if
it is used. BMW’s have a reputation

lasting cars that are safe to drive.

the important safety features this car has:

Technology and Entertainment Features of the BMW Z4
The BMW Z4 is a car equipped with lots of
great technology and entertainment. Listed
below are some of its features.
Satellite radio
IPod jack
Navigation system
Retractable roof top
These features are important to me for
many reasons. The iPod Jack is important
because I have a lot of songs
on my iPod and I’d like to
listen to them when I'm driving.
The Navigation system is important because it
makes it a lot easier to get
around places I don’t know as well
as my town and finding places.
In like the retractable roof because in
the summer it is nice to drive with the top off.

Features of the Corvette
The Corvette is a car equipped with lots of
great technology and entertainment. Listed
Below are some of its features:
My ChevroletApp for the Iphone
Heads up display (information on your windshield)
Navigation
7 speaker sound system Bose
These features are important because I am getting a IPhone
and I will be able to use the IPhone app
that controls a lot of things about your car.
The heads up display is nice because I don’t have to take my eyes off the road
to see my speed or how much gas I have left.
The 7 speaker sound system is important to me
because I like to listen to my music in the car and this would allow me to loud.
