All I can say is, it could have been worse. But I will be sticking with my shoe.

Mein Auto: Lots of different stuff
I want to see the "face-lifted" model before I make my decision. I hope BMW gets rid of the scowl on the Z4 face like they did on the 7er. I also hope for a wider rear stance and a world class aero package for the M version.

Paying for it will be another matter... maybe I'll lease one and actually drive it.

I'm not sure I would buy another S54 myself.

This is what i was thinking as well. The Z3 is my keeper, don't have space or $$ for another one of those right now.

Do you know if BMWNA will allow an Individual car to be leased? hmmmmm....

No, but if it's leased, I'm getting black. Who cares about swirls and scratches on a leased car.

Note the car with Modena/Butter interior in the pics has an all leather dash and leather a-pillars. Z4 Extended leather pkg currently does come with leather a-pillars, but the dash is all-new and/or a copy of the parts used on Alpina Roadster S. Minus the Alpina colored stitching.

depends. on your credit, what you put down and how BMW (or the leasing company) envisions the car depreciating.

I must say, not impressed. The cayman looks much better. Unless they shove a big ass motor in the thing, it will not sell well at all.

I'll stick with my S54.

Well, my credit is excellent. But I wouldnt trade my car in for that thing. I hate the interior. I said it. I will admit that I buy my cars more for the interior than the exterior. So I will never be sold. I could get over the outside of the cars to be honest... But I will never get past that hidious interior. Bring back my cockpit feel where everything is angled towards the driver and it feels just right. But if I wanted to sit in a box, I can get a cardboard one for much less money.

I like the look of the spoiler a lot better than how they did it on the convertible trunklid. A few more styling tweaks and that is a looker.

Now the back is more attractive than the front.
I've never liked or warmed up to the nose of this car.
They should have shown us one at HC as it may be more becoming in 3D.
So where's the M??

I like it a lot. I've driven four different Z4's in BMW Ultimate Drives and as loaners, and I think they're great fun. I'm a relative newcomer to BMW so I like the styling without any intrinsic distrust of the designer. I've got an '06 Mini S on order to join my M3 in the garage. Who knows? Might have to get one of these in a couple of years to replace the M.

Well, I have driven my share of hte Z4s, and the overwhelming feeling is that its too big inside. Not in leg room or shoulder room, but the way the dash is laid out flat makes me feel like I am in an old buick. But then again, every manufacturer is doing that to make costs cheaper in making left and right drive cars. But it still sucks!
