How come E90 but not E85

How come there is an E90 thead under ///M (for a car that does not yet exist) ... but there is no E85 (a car that most definitely exists)?

Hmmmm ....

It is most likely due to the fact that the Z3 M roadster is discussed with the other Z3s (they wanted it that way).

Saw a 4 M roadster tonight. Definitely a car I won;t buying- no way in hell I fit. I will say that if I sat in a Z3 M roadster before I bought it I wouldn't have bought it for the same reason.

Yeap, more in common with other Z cars, and not enough of them to support a separate section.

Well, I do disagree with that statement. The 2006 M roadster is more like an M car than it is a Z4. At least to the point that an M3 is more like an M car than it is a 3-series. There is no surpise to me that the regular Z3 & Z4 members don't care about a seperate thread ... duh ... but then again I'm seeing M Coupe and M Roadster owners voting anti-M also. Go figure. It's not about segregation and posting in a different location, but it is more like the MZ3/MZ4 is not accepted as a true M car.

But no worries ... the Z3 & Z4 will be the only production M cars that don't warrant their own section under M-Series. That's cool. Exclusivity, that's why I chose M Roadster over an M3 Cabriolet ... so I guess this is what I get.
