Well you have to take into account about 4% inflation per year, plus the loss of US dollar vs the Euro.

1. Get rid of the hard top crap, its a rag top car.
2. Put one awesome motor in it not two.
3. Fix the rear end, it's too fat.
4. Make a M Model
5. Call me when all the above happens.

Happy Motoring.
Sorry I can't agree with you

I will never ever buy another rag top, that's yesterday's technology.

I'm frustrated the new S5 is a rag top, the new 6 is a rag top, the new E vert is a rag top...really aggravates me

I wanted to get a E vert instead of another Z4 (I like to change things up, I love the new Z4 but I like having different cars, hence why I lease), but it's a damn rag top so it's useless.

I do have to agree that having a M model would be great

But you have to have 2 motors in a model line up. One that's fast, one that's not as fast :P
