You mean for the 2008 model? Do you think they're gonna do another facelift? The new look is only 2 years old.

There won't be another face lift. There will be a new Z4 in late 2008. I don't care cause by then I'll be driving a new 135i or maybe a Chevy Cobalt.

Hey Ward and Scheps, where did you read that...
If anyone has info on the new Z4, can you kindly list your sources, so we can sort out the rumors...

For example out of the three below I would toss the first two in the rumor bin and do more research on the third;

"I heard the 2008 Z4 will be offered in pink only with a folding hard top.
I heard this in the pub on July 4 from a guy who sells used Fords."

"I read the Z4 Coupe will be canned, but the Roadster will be re-invented as an all-wheel drive mini-van called KidZ. I read this in a note pad I found under one of my student's desks."

"I read in Road & Track magazine that the Z4 will be given another nose job and stuck with the same interior for 2008, I think it was the March issue."

These are of course, for illustration only... even the last one is a rumor.

JM2C...
don't be surprised if the new Z is based on the new 1er.
If they could bring that puppy in ~3000lb with the N54 wow...

there are lots of rumors floating around of the new Z being smaller and more of a Miata fighter than a Boxster fighter

there are also rumors of a larger car being produced as well

we may see a smaller cheaper Z and a bigger more expensive Z in a couple years

I've said it before and I'll say it again - that won't work. The Z3 was supposed to be a Miata rival, but it was too expensive to tempt Miata customers and too slow to tempt Boxster customers. BMW couldn't make it cheaper, so they made it faster as the model run went on.

As for it being 1-series based, that leads to another Z3 criticism. The Z3 was based on the E36 chassis with the E30's rear suspension, so it didn't handle as well as its contemporaries. The 1-series is based on the E46, so a 1-series-based Z2 would again br based on a previous-generation car - the current Z4.

I don't understand why BMW thinks this will work. Actually, scratch that, I do. The Z4 is a better car and languishes on dealer lots, while the Z3 sold by the sackful. I'm betting they think a tarted-up version of an old car will sell like hotcakes if they can get a picture of Daniel Craig in one.

Oh no, not again... I remember some member over at E90forums who was obsessed with pink cars. Every pink car photo we threw at her and she would jump at excitement.
