but 35is is the sport car
"its as same as X5m's"
what is this?? it just looks the same as the old z4m
not x5m rofl
"diluting this model line"
what is this again?? old z4 had 2.5i, 3.0i and 3.0si
you ok? and there won't be M version of z4 so it make sense
"M Sport 3.0i will run high $50s with a similar look to a $75k loaded 3.5is"
this thing doesn't even make sense.
do you think difference between 30i and 35is is $25k?
that will be a M not non-M car

If you bought 30i, I'm pretty sure you don't even care about
spending money 3k more for 35is
30i sport package is about 2300 and 3500 with 19 wheel
35i with m sport package will be about the same
you are either just trying to get a rise out of everyone, or you are saying things just for effect. Your statements are silly at best.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Sure you like your M coupe, but we all want convertible here hence we buy the new Z4.

I ordered a sDrive23i M Sport after trying a sDrive30i with standard suspension. Does anyone have a M Sport Z4 with non-adaptive M Sport suspension? How does it compare to the E85 M Sport suspension (same or bit softer)? My car is expected in June.

hi Shadow, sorry i just want to make sure i understand your question because you guys get all these diff choices. if you order M sport package here in the States you automatically get adaptive suspension. are you able to order the M package separate from the adaptive suspension in the UK??

In UK, only 35is comes with standard Adaptive M Sport suspension at no extra cost. All other M Sport models come with non-adaptive one. Adaptive suspension on M Sport model is £645 extra, but £950 for standard Z4.

The BMW configuration seems to show the Z4 30i/35i M Sport Package is now only available with Ivory White. I know that wasn't the case before as there were two separate packages. FYI the package code for Ivory White interior is ZWP.

30i and 35i M Sport Package
ZMP - w/o Ivory White
ZMW - w/ Ivory White

See attached snip from the BMW 2011 Z4 MSRP price for base model and all options/packages listing w/ an effective date of Effective January 29, 2010.

Can anyone tell me if BMW has changed this options or is it the configurator acting up?

Note: I'll likely talk to a dealer about it, and did post a similar message on Bimmerfest's "Ask a Dealer", but the CA's at the local dealership are lucky to know what the hood roundel stands for, not to mention deciphering ordering codes.

I think BMW hit a home run with the 35i. Hitting the ball another 10-15 feet out-of-the-park adds nothing to the end result.
some people will think, oh the guy is just jealous and wishes he had the latest and greatest. But in this case I think you are right on the money. Just dont see the added expense for so little, that I really dont think is much of an improvement. Blassi did it right the first time.

I have a 30i with M sports package and 19 inch wheels optioned as well.
I did this purely for the look of the car. Yes, it is not a performance upgrade, but actually, when you break it down, it is a well priced package for what you get.
You get sports seats, nicer wheels, adaptive suspension, and then all the little visual enhancements that you may think are silly, but that I like - I like the body kit, the carbon flavoured interior and the discreet M badges on the interior. There is no gawky M badge on the outside making anyone think its an M car, and anyone who sees the exhaust configuration knows its not even a 35i or is!

I have seen a few new Z4s around now, and although I think I am totally biased, I am yet to see one that is as nice as mine. I have the metallic black 30i with beige interior, carbon trim, sports seats, and huge 19 inch 326M wheels (ps: 313's are BMW performance, not M sport wheels). I have tinting to the max on my rear and side windows and have the entire car debadged from the factory. I've taken off all the silly dealer stickers, and that's it. Its beautiful! Still working on getting past that 1500km limit before I can show its who's boss, but its plenty fast enough for the streets so far.

Will have some photos in 3 weeks time to show yuo what I mean...

Thanks Vintage. I like the front bumper, could take or leave the rear bumper, and the 325M wheels have grown on me.

At first I wasn't sure but it grew on me and no I do like the M-package.
If I were to order again today I would certainly go for it but with the 19inch 326's.

WTF BMW...

Really?
No power bump at all with the "M-sport" package?
No steering inprovements?
No suspension fixes?

Car and driver review says: "When pushing the Z4is in the manner for which you assume itís been designed, the suspension feels lazy and unenthusiastic, even in the most aggressive sport setting."

Does the M-sport pack address that? (Hint: no. See title.)

Obvious conclusion: this is a marketing-made "appearance package" that doesn't improve the base car the way the M Groupe is supposed to... (see title).

It would seem a buyer is better off getting the Sd35is and retrofitting coilovers, a Quaife, a tune, exhaust ( etc etc etc - oh wait, isn't that what an M car should have?)

See title.

I may be off base, but I believe the vast majority of us have already differentiated and set the proper expectations between a package (M Sport Package) and an entirely new model (M Model).

"lazy or unenthusiastic" - Z4 (e89). These are 2 terms that don't really belong in the same sentence, regardless of the reference. That entirely subjective comment from C&D elicits the urge to let out a big fat, loud........"Ohh Puleeease". I know I usually have a couple of those while reading through each of their monthly releases. Their objective info is reliable, but their opinions....a select few are just off the wall.
