Mein Auto: 2011 Z4 35i

Also if you want to be particular it has grey instrument dials with 35is written on them.

It is said that the BMW has slightly underrated the 35is power. I have seen a dyno somewhere. I was suprised that it 'only' produces 340 odd HP given that it runs around 14psi on overboost.
1. $2 to plug the flapper valve "open" considerable less than $2500.
2. DCT if you want an automatic clutch so your wife can drive it - can't get a MT in the "is".
3. Now I have to agree the Grey Instrument dials & the "M" (Motorsport Marketing) badging (except for on the outside of the car) make it all worth the added cost.
4. HP bragging rights = Male enhancement

All kidding aside get what makes you happy! Whatever model you choose, do ED & take your wife on a nice romantic 2-3 week european vacation. No driving experience in the US will ever compare to that encountered on an European Delivery.
