Here she is... !!!

Just arrived this morning, and was greeted with some sunny weather.

It has the same engine as my old 325i coupe, but on the Z4 it sounds so much better. Not sure if they've tweaked the exhaust, but it sounds like BMW 6 cylinders of old. I love it!

Awesome!! Love the pics. The blue really stands out in the sunshine. I'm not picking up mine until 5pm today. Still, I'll have it over the weekend which is what matters...

Will post some picks either tomorrow or Sunday.

Thanks JJ ! My dealer had me scheduled in for a 4pm pickup, but I instantly said I would take the day off work so I could pick up earlier! I picked it up just after 9am this morning. You WON'T be disappointed. Its a remarkable car, and you basically "fall" into it. It is indeed a very dark blue out of the sun, but really lightens up when you are close to the car and its in the sunshine. Look forward to hearing your thoughts and seeing pics.

Absolutely beautiful. Congratulations. Noting your location I would think they call that color "Rangers Blue".

A real beauty...!! Congratulations...!! Have nice trips with it my friend...!!

And a question...!! What about the standard dash? Is it beautiful? I haven't seen it closely, how is it from close? It seems to be a silver material like aluminium, is it nice? I will have the same in a few days, in the 1st of June and I can't wait until this...!!

really nice car

i see the 19inch wheel on yours: it's really nice but is it confortable ???
i really hesitate : 18 inch more confortable (v 294) or sporty and nicer with 19.

If you could give me your point of view

another question:

why did you take black leather with deep see blue ???
all picture i've seen before was in beige ???

is it not TOO darky when your roof is on ??

Thanks to everyone for the positive comments. I really am very pleased with this car.

Indeed - and hopefully it will be lucky for Sunday!

I have read somewhere that the front end is so long it feels somewhat disconected...what are your thoughts on that?
Driving out the dealers carpark, I admit I was very nervous about the dimensions of the car - width and where exactly the front corners were. I have on a couple of occasions today when manoeuvring around other cars, switched on the PDC just to be on the safe side. I expect that within a few days, this won't be a problem.

I was worried that the dash would be too bright. It is a very light silver, almost white-ish in colour. I am happy with it, and the fact it goes right across the dashboard.

I do feel that any imperfections in the road are a bit more noticeable with the 19" wheels (I have 18" rims on the 325i coupe), but *only* if you go over a pothole in the road. I think the 18" wheels suit the car well, but for me, the look of the 19's did it!

The reason I went for black leather was that my 325i coupe had Jade Grey leather, which looked terrific and contrasted well with the dark carpets. I wanted a darker interior this time around, basically for a change. The lining of the roof is light grey, so I don't think its too dark in the cabin to be honest.

Hope this helps.

In the UK, even if you don't specify the extended lights package, you still get map reading lights and 2 orange LED's beside the main interior light. These light up the centre console area.

With the sports seats, the only thing thats electrical is the adjustment of the side bolsters - everything else (backrest and base) are manual. The seats are very comfortable, I have to say!

ok ok

so electrical seat are another option than sport seat

another little question:

did you take the M suspension option (i think a good combination with 19inch wheel) to preserve confort in "confort mode" and more precise in sport+ mode
??

No, I didn't go for M sport suspension. I don't really like too harsh or stiff a ride to be honest. Hope this helps!
