BMW is not porsche, and this car is not intending to be a super performer, so you won't get the colt following like the 944, nor should you.
Instead you have many 4-cyl Z4s sitting on dealer lots.
In the 90s BMW sold 4 cyllinders in the US. by the e46 they were gone, and American BMW drivers celebrated. Now they are back, and those same people are still BMW fans, and despise the 4-cylinder even more.
