You tell me, what is the target market for the Z4? You're not going for the performance buyer and you put in a 300HP twin turbo? They softened up the ride, and shipped mostly loaded, auto...

To get to the $1000 figure are you subtracting the cost of the ipod and sat radio from the $1800? I assume you are not going to pay MSRP for the car so it will actually be less.

What is your...

Thanks blue, I haven't driven either car yet because I don't want salesman hounding me yet, but obviously I will drive both of them. Did you drive the twin turbo version?
