Imagine you were BMW, and trying to make a profit. What would you have done differently? You make the best looking roadster, put the most award-winning engine inside. You tune it for that everyday sports-oriented driving BMW is know for, and then the world's leading car show (top gear) comes out with a stellar review and firm recommendation. Even Jeremy Clarkson says he certainly perfers it over the SLK and the Boxter. Yet you keep your feet on the ground, and do not price it any higher than those alternatives.
Very good points. I also don't understand why the Z4 is not selling as well as the SLK or the Boxter.

Also I would be beating myself pretty badly for betting on Pitbull & Marc Anthony while letting the SLK in on PSY and gangnam-style.
Just went and watched the Pitbull video. The Z4 got a lot more screen time in there than the SLK in Gangnm Style
