...and the Z4 transforms into the sportscar it is supposed to be after one replaces the OEM runflats with proper performance tires.
I'd never see it as a cruiser... rather a really nice, really fast roadster. Aside from litterally taking it to the track (and maybe even then depending upon your specific build), the Z4 is every bit the blast to drive as the Boxter. While the additional luxury in the new ones draws comments like cruiser, it shouldn't be confused with making it any less of an incredible car to drive. In fact, I love all the gizmos. It's 2012 for gods sake, high beams should work themselves!

They drive different, always have... But its still the one I'd pick...hell just ordered number 3!
