Anyone know what the new options on the 2014 Z4 are yet?

Noticed that the new 2014 Z4 has got the front and rear parking sensors now instead of just the rear. So at least that much is new beyond the styling changes. Was wondering if anyone has seen any info on the new options for the 2014 Z4 yet as I'm considering ordering one.

It has:

1) new interior colors.
2) new headlights
3) new side vent/lights.

Thats it. The car is a work of art and BMW know it. It is VERY hard to improve on. 2010+ with m-sport packages look as good as the day they were build including the 04s

Actually front and rear parking sensors have been on the car since 2009... at least they have been in the UK.

That's one view... the other is that its sold in very low volume and they don't want to spend too much on it.

The UK, but not the US. So it's new for us.

I already know that's not true. Just look at the pictures there were released. You can see it's got front parking sensors added, which the 2013 US-spec didn't have. So good chance other things have been added.

Only the US doesnt have them the rest of the world does.

Now the 04s do have the white LED rings vs the amber ones of older models. This might be a group buy one day?

My 2012 has front and rear sensors in the US.
ETA: unless you are talking about standard features. Mine were definitely an option.

Which, is also a + for those who are keeping the car for a while. Means they won't look outdated for another 4-5 years.
