Mein Auto: 2006 3.0i Z4
Wow 100 Z4's sold in September

I'm not impressed by the low sales of the Z4 - One could ask:
1. Is it just the economy?
2. Nobody likes 2 seater sports cars?
3. The design & workmenship are no good?
4. Maybe the price is too high?

Ummm lets see:
Q.1. Yes unemployemnt is about 10%, but that still leaves 90% employed.
Q. 2 A roadster is a classic combination, I hardly think people are down on two seaters.
Q.3 The new Z4 is probably the best designed and highest tech of any roadster on the market today.
Q. 4. Well what about price - well I was rather shocked when I walked into my local dealer's showroom - before me sat a 335i vert price $65,000 next to it was a loaded Z4 335 price $63,000. Now granted the twin turbo is a go fast fun engine but why the high cost? I thought my 06 Z4 was pricy at $42,000 - that looks like a steal compared to the new pricing.

I doubt BMW will be reducing prices so I would'nt be surprized to see the Z4 dropped from the lineup. It's really a shame too cause look at how popular the Z3 used to be - it had a good price and was a blast to drive. I'm just say'n
