Lots better in that color combo, and different wheels seem to help as well. I don't like the front end, though.

That will be awsome.

BTW...
I have looked at the technical sheet for this and it says Top Speed = 130 mph?
What gives? Why would they limit it to that?
And the whole cupholder thing is crazy baffling!!
I could see BMW getting rid of the E-brake (I dont know why they would, but I know they would)
I thought the //M was scrapped for this version of the Z4?

What engine choices will there be? N54?

Yep, it's getting the 3.0 and 3.0tt. As always, BMW says there won't be an M - they said that about the Z3 and Z4 as well - but this time they might mean it; rumor has it the E92 M3 engine won't fit.

Well this should be a screamer with the N54--how much will this bad boy weigh? 3000 pounds?

Could it be possible they don't make a coupe version. Since this is a hardtop convertible. Something like the SLK. I hope not.

Hard to say. The M3 has a hardtop convertible and a coupe. So I wouldn't rule out a coupe. For those seeking light weight it would be the answer.

I have a feeling they will not make a coupe version.

If they do, hopefully it is $8,400 less. Like the 335i coupe and 335i convertible price difference. I know, wishfull thinking.

I'm thinking (sadly), looking at the side elevations of the new Z4, that they may have problems fitting the S65 into it without one mother of a bonnet bulge. Still, 0-100 in 5 seconds with the N54 (and DCT) is not shabby.

Seriously considering putting a (monetary*) deposit on one of these now I've seen it camouflage off.


* thought I should differentiate the type of deposit given some of the other posts here

I wouldn't say it is Aston Martin level beauty.

It definitely looks better than the hideous new 7-series.
