Best quality yet, great stance, great wheels. This is an amazing halo car for BMW. They better pack some nice engines under that hood

Two minor things are every so slightly bothering me.... the top of antenna is higher than the actual roofline - does this look a bit silly?

Also, the twin tailpipes seem quite small - is this likely to be the 3.0i in line 6 engine, or maybe a 4 cylinder 2.0i ?

I'm still keen to see this car for real though!

Yes, that's what I thought. They couldn't badge it as a 2.5i though, if it really is a 3.0i

Agreed, the very first mod for me would be a stubby antenna install, imagine that stock antenna sticking up like that with the top down! ugh!

i have a feeling this car is gonna be cooler than i thought.. current z4 is real sick.. just wish it could be bigger.. but overal body designs from so many angles are hot... i believe this one will do a good job topping it. Under the camo, it doesnt loook so appealing but im sure they thats the feeling they were looking for.

I agree. This is the one detail that I didn't notice in previous shots. It gives the car some needed character. I like the new Z a lot. Two things remain to be discovered. Engine and price.

Nope, there won't be 4 cylinder engine in Z4... But yes, twin tailpipes on left side are small, they only got 60 mm diameter..

I'll need to measure the size of the twin tailpipes on my 325i coupe... they are probably around 60mm.

So Shakal, when are we getting the press launch ????

Hello Shakal,

Are you absolutely sure there won't be 4 cylinders in the z4 ?

That's not what I heard

If we talk about gas engines, yes absolutely sure that only R6 engines will be offered. For diesel engine, rumours are it will be same as is in 123d, but I don't have any conformation on that.

i heard from a good source that there will be 3 engines, all engines will have 3.0 litres. Badging is "sDrive", so it will be called " Z4 sDrive30i". Smallest engine will be sDrive23i (both 23i and 30i are N52 engines), biggest engine is N54 (sDrive35i). Informations about a Diesel engine are still unremained, yet it would make sense because of the TT TDI and the next gen SLK Diesel rumors (although it will be only a 4zylinder-diesel because of the torque)). Insiders say there will be no Z4M because of high costs, 2010 a "high performance" variant will be introduced with a boosted N54. Prices will be high for sure, BMW's price policies are ridiculous. Take the price from the current Z4, add a folding hard top(around 2000$), add Xenon's, leather etc as standard equipment (they will reduce the options due to variant reduction, so the base model will have increased standard equipment), and you end will up above of the 40k-line (standard model). sDrive35i's standard price will be because of that near to the 50k-level.

That's what i have heard...

But BMW got two N52 engines, one is 2.5 l and second is 3.0 l , so 23i could be...

About press release... probably not very soon
