    BMW Z4 coupe

    old Z4 is much better looking IMHO



    Re: BMW Z4 coupe

    Hmmm - not bad imho. I had a 98 M-Coupe - and it was a very fun car.

    another

    Re: BMW Z4 coupe

    don't really like it, the side profiles lines don't follow each other, they seem to go all over the place. another bangle work of art...

    Re: BMW Z4 coupe

    Terrible, looks like a mish mash of lines, jags, angles and shapes. The only reason that people are not laughing this car right out of the show is because most have gotten used to the design after looking at the Z4 vert for a few years now.

    The front is the worst part, imo. It's bulgy, like the front of a shoe.

    Re: BMW Z4 coupe

    why is so many bmw on this forum , this few days!?

    Re: BMW Z4 coupe

    I don't like the looks of the Z4 much, but this coupe is a bit prettier than the roadster and probably drives alot better...

    ... but not even close to the gorgeous Z3 Coupé.

    Re: BMW Z4 coupe

    We quibble about the Cayman's foglights (minor faux pas IMHO) and BMW foists this abomination upon the public???

    Re: BMW Z4 coupe

    I don't know. I think it could be cool. Especially in M form. Although it does kinda look like they just stuck a 6 series roof and hatch on it.

    Re: BMW Z4 coupe

    I like it. Way better than the convertible.

    Re: BMW Z4 coupe

    probably i'll be banned from rennteam for this... but i'd prefer the Z4 coupé over a cayman anytime.

    I won't ask for you to be banned if you tell me why

    Is it the power, looks, or something else?

    having seen both life within 10 minutes i must say the z4 looks better imo. while the cayman looks a bit like a smallbreasted 911 the z4 is more indipendent and muscular. maybe a caymann rs would make things look different, but as is now I prefer the z4 too (we are talking looks, not driving dynamics!)
    cheers

    Re: BMW Z4 coupe

    some more pics...

    Re: BMW Z4 coupe

    The only thing I don't like - judging from the pics - is the rear decklid trying to incorportate itself into the rest of the body. I predict that the car looks much better in reality, the first couple of pics are photographed from a very high point of view - most cars look rather dull in that way.

    Besides that the sidewindows don't really complement the Z4's side curves but this is rather a minor complaint - especially since I believe that this was done on purpose...

    because of the looks. as turbolite put it, i think the beemer looks more muscular, more special. bangle's flaming surfaces are really growing on me.
    i've not driven both cars yet (of course), but i could imagine that the cayman's handling actually is way superior (at least Z4 convertible steering feels very remote). but i'm a poseur, so there...

    Re: BMW Z4 coupe

    In fact it was the Californian designstudio of BMW which presented the first proposals for the Z4. If you watch the development of the latest models, one can see that the cars coming up after the Z4 - especially the X3 and 1-series - have a different approach to shape the body. They are much more dictated by convex and concave surfaces, a decreasing window sill and the slope along the side panels.

    I cetainly wouldn't buy one of these. I owned a 1999 M-Roadster (based on the Z3), and I liked its look. I am certainly in the camp that BMW Bangled, er, bungled, this design, but, we'll see if it sells. . . .

    Ah, so you want to blame the Californians for this?
