Hmmm.... Several lookers - no comments? Anyone have an opinion on the roadster?

As ragtops go, it looks good, but I don't like rags and prefer hardtops. I'm probably in the minority, but I think that the coupe looks great w/ that 'backwards cap' look (vs the 1st gen coupe).

OT: so you're still shopping for a Z4 or now heading towards the Mini?

LOL! I test drove the Mini Roadster last week and really liked the way it handled. Certainly not as fast or near-exotic as the Z4... but it has its place -- plus it has a surprisingly satisfactory trunk!

THing is - BMW has pretty good incentives and financing/leasing options on the Z4, but I think the Mini Roadster fees will be considerably higher, actually bringing a lease payment ridiculously close to a Z4 lease payment.

btw... anyone know what the money factor and residual is for the roadster? (maybe I'll start a new thread with that question)

Doug
