    A brief review on Evo: 

    http://www.evo.co.uk/news/evonews/232896/new-bmw-z4.html

    Looks nice. It seems a step toward luxury compared to a Porsche, but still a worthy competitor. The front grille reminds me of the Z8, and the rear looks more polished than the 6-series.  I wonder how it drives...

            I have internal broschure and nothing is written about diesel engine. That means next year  it wont be available. But it was tested before, same engine as is in 123d.

    Well, to be honest, also that wasn't a really big deal, was it? Smiley

    Re: New BMW Z4 revealed

    What I don't like is this. If you start driving "spiritedly" or, God forbid, start driving aggressively in traffic, the "Get The F Outta My Way" aggressive look of this car will reinforce the public's prejudice that all BMW driver's are ahls.

    I don't get why BMW cars are now designed to look like angry reptiles. Does that mean BMW is trying to appeal to a lower mentality or immature anxious buyers with feelings of inadequacy?

    It looks pretty good actually. In my area not many Z4's around. Common car yes, but atleast it points to someting a little more distinctive from the BMW Munich peeps.

    Re: New BMW Z4 revealed

    @MMD - I like this compare to that Cobra. The front looks indeed very mean - like it!

    Re: New BMW Z4 revealed

    Mean is good, and get the f out out of my way look for any car is specially good where we can drive the way we like.  The look always helps slowing down from 2xx k/h to 1xx  while trying to force the car out of my fking lane...  May be unnecessary in the US I don't know.  Used all 3 lanes all the time while I lived there since horn and flashing lights are considered harrasment.  I cannot live without these 2 here.

    Well back to the subject, I like it very much, upcoming?!? M version or a sport pack one will look even better.

    No problem. I'm not saying my opinion is cast in bronze and gold plated, nor that it matters more than anybody else's.

    BTW, I guess I _could_ be convinced to buy a Z4; I mean I hated the wing on my TT but not enough to refuse to get one.

    What I mean is, it seems soooo unfortunate to have no choice but to have to drive around in a car, the Z4 in this case, that _obviously_ has been personified to have an aggressive look on it's "face."

    Can't the designers come up with something beautiful, attractive, intelligent and NECESSARILY less _LITERAL_? Less like you'd find it's analog in a coloring book for kids?

    It's just a few steps away from driving a clown car. When do you suppose these "Death Race 2000" cars will come into vogue?

    What's happening to the _mentality_ of the car buying public? That "mentality" does NOT include any of us here on Rennteam of course.
