So I found a 428i vert and did a test drive. Clearly it does not move off the line like a 35 nor would I expect that considering the weight and engine. However, it was not an issue for me and once...

There are 4 in my building, 3 e89s (including mine) and 1 Z4M. Not so rare down here in S. Fl. May have to do with styling, I know I was never a fan of the e85 look but like the redesigned e89.
