You do know that there is a difference between the rear wheel hp (that you get from a dyno), and the crankshaft hp (that the manufactures publish), right?

When will the next generation Z come out? 2016?

I'm just trying to make some plans for down the road. I went from a '09 Z4sdrive35i to my '13 535i, I love my current car, but it doesn't get my blood pumping like the Z did. Thanks.

You might consider plastidipping the rims black first just to try them out. Just google "plastidip wheels". You can do all 4 wheels for about $24, and it's completely reversible.

I just wanted to throw out there that I did all of my hotel bookings across 3 countries with tripadvisor.com. I would suggest checking their reviews/prices against other offers that you find.

I completely agree, but I'm using the assumption that you would save much more than $1k by using a board sponsor versus, from what I have come to find, any dealer in TX, LA, or AL.

Thanks for looking. I felt like it was a bit much too. Maybe it will get relisted at a lower point. And thanks for reminding me how much maintenance cane be required on one of these cars.

Hey Aggie, my battery started having trouble holding a charge in my last Z4 (2009) when it was just 1.5 years old. BMW took care of the replacement, didn't cost me a dime.
