    Re: BMW Z4 E89 Official

    wow, that's a huge leap in the Z4 family tree... that interior is finally something new.. all the little center round gauges remind me of the Z8.

    I'm quite pleased with this design.. very modern and fresh.. i love these new curves and rather complex but not too busy design elements of the body work!! BMW good stuff!

    looks like an SL competitor now btw... it seems to have grown and increased some weight/power in its presence. can't wait for the M... maybe with turbo Smiley

    No, they finally gave him the stock option he's been demanding since he joined BMW so he has now stopped sabotaging the company's products. Smiley

    I like it too. I would have preferred a soft top however. I hope the weight hasn't increased by too much. I'm looking forward to cross one on the streets.

    Must be the case. Smiley

    I really like the car, looks great from every angle, the first BMW with a great design (except maybe for the 3series coupé) in years. Smiley

    Especially like it in dark colours, looks even better than this "grigio ingrid" in the second pics.

    Re: BMW Z4 E89 Official

    This car looks damn good, the lines and curves are so nice.  I hope BMW would follow this design trend for the future cars.  Hopefully they're getting back to their roots when BMW was synonymous with beauty. 

    The new 7 doesn't look good though Smiley.

    It's nice to like a BMW design again, definitely see a little Z8 in it, sorry to hear of Chris Bangle's passing. Smiley

    Better than perfect :)

    Weights:

    sDrive23i: 1480 kg (1505 kg)
    sDrive30i: 1490 kg (1505 kg)
    sDrive35i: 1580 kg (1600 kg)


    BMW Z4 sDrive 23i (204 HP) = €35,900
    BMW Z4 sDrive 30i (258 HP) = €42,900
    BMW Z4 sDrive 35i (306 HP) = €47,450

    Re: BMW Z4 E89 Official

    I like the new shape. Its main rival the Mercedes SLK, looks like a toy car now.

    It also looks much much better than the Ferrari California in profile open or closed, although people willing to spend 200K Euro on a Ferrari will never admit to it.

    Is the Auto 7 speed a dual-clutch transmission?

    Exactly my thoughts. Smiley

    No fan of the new 7series either. Smiley

    Yes. The NA-versions get the standard automatic gearbox though. Smiley

    Can someone explain the naming convention please ? What's sDrive 30i and 35i, is this new ?

    Re: BMW Z4 E89 Official

    I love it, the exterior as well as the interior.  SmileySmiley

    I have been very impressed by BMW since the X5 launch, they have lost the plot for a while but since then they are back on track. Smiley

    Among Audi, BMW and Mercedes, 2007 was Audi's year but 2008 is BMW's imho.

    Damn, that's pretty heavy.

    And why does it "only" get the 258 hp and 306 hp versions of those engines (when the 330i has 272 hp and the 740i has 326 hp)?

    It's the NWO from BMW, all the 4wd cars are now xDrive and the sporty cars are sDrive.

    Another very nice picture, form certain angles this car is stunning!

           I don't expect 3.0 R6 272 hp engine, because it isn't mentioned in any internal broschure. N54 engine in Z4 is "35i" , while N54 engine in 7er is "40i", which means F01 got N54 stage 2 engine while Z4 got stage 1 engine. Later, sDrive40i will be introduced, which I think it will have same engine as 740i got or maybe even more powerfull..


    Re: BMW Z4 E89 Official

    It looks way better than expected! :)

    Can't wait to see it live!

    When's the release? Hopefully not as far away from initial presentation as Audi is placing theirs lately....

    Re: BMW Z4 E89 Official

    I got official brochure this weekend and when I read it I was somehow dissapointed with some technical aspects. All NA engines are not current highest BMW standard. Weight is up little bit too much.

    ...and biggest problem IMHO-new Z4 looks way better in darker colors. You know what people say when car do not look good in silver-that its desing is actually average quality.... Hopefully, I will be more impresses when I see it nexxt summer. Currenty, for me-not bad but, nothing more..


    Re: BMW Z4 E89 Official

    Looks amazing, in and outside! Well done!

    Just the hard-top I have to get used to. Somehow I like that textile on sporty roadsters.

    As I said before. Smiley

    But Kreso, I don't think that it's a real problem: new Z4 is a car, which I would only order in dark colours and it really isn't bad-looking in lighter colours, just not as good as in dark paint.

    Bigger problem IMO is the heavy weight and the NA-engines which are a step back. Smiley

            I like it in lighter colours... found this photoshop:

    This will be probably my choice. I also like it in "Orion Silver" or "Deep sea blue."

    Thats true N52 isn't good as N53, but who cares for those engines when N54 is available Smiley
