Thumbs up New Photos: BMW Z4 Painting Canvas

Guided by modern artist Robin Rhode and a team of technicians, the Z4 is rigged up with machines that spray paint from the wheels, with everything captured on film by director Jake Scott, Ridley's son. The tire prints in all kinds of hues are laid down on an enormous white canvas, and the result is called "An Expression of Joy."

Wow do I get one of those paint dispenser things for my wheels

This car has no bad angles! I never like the look of roadsters with their top up they're usually too bubbly and the canvas material breaks up the lines of the car but this hardtop looks awesome

You'll get a fantastic deal on a Z4 M, or experience massive depreciation on the new Z4.

The Z4 M is also almost bound to drive better (lighter, lower centre of gravity, better brakes, better steering, slightly more powerful, but i could be wrong)

Only upside of new Z4 is new package of toys and a fresher look, imho.

I think the answer is clear!

(You can always "upgrade" in a few years)

That counts for a lot!! All depends on the individual buyer... some of us need/want to have the newest body. Plus I just think this new body looks so much better than the current Z4.

The retracting hard-top is also an important factor, since I am living in Philly - 3-4 months of horrible weather. Also I have never had a car with soft top before so I am not sure how good it is if you don't own a closed garage and for security of the car and also during winter... But I have driven the Z4 M a few times (also the old M3) and I love that engine, it is not as quick as the new M3 but I think it is still more than athletic enough for urban environment. I guess I will have decide this way or another soon before summer comes so that the z4 m prices do not go back up again... Thanks your your comment though...

I think that "advertisement" or child's long lost dream is very stupid, the car is sweet though.
