A friend has a Z-3 Coupe, and I always enjoy driving it. I can only imagine the Z-4 is better yet.

Good luck with it!

It's more like a BMW Civic Si hot hatch. Except it's a pure 2-seater.

Don't get me wrong wrt penis-mobile, I really wanted the Z3 Coupe when it came out. Damn functional sports car. Fun to drive.

Same here... Looks even better in person than in the pictures..

This may be why Ken bought one: they look even better from the back..



And with a rear hatch like that it is ready and willing to be curred of its bitchines:

I think if I stepped out of that car in a dress you'd see MUCH more than could ever be forgotten

My old principal had a Z3 Coupe and them an Z4 M coupe or whatever it was called. Really nice cars, both of them. I loved the lines of the Z4 coupe.

I love the lines of the Z4 too and there are not many cars that I like these days.

When I was on a paid hiatus from work and sitting out my non-compete, I got bored and sold BMW's for a while.

Without a doubt, the Z4, used or new, was my favorite car to rip around in. The M5 was great, but the Z4 was funner.

Congrats. They go good and are comfortable. I'm 6'3" and fit. Nothing not to love.

BTW, the best part of selling BMW's was the test drive. Taking demo drives and showing potential customers (with permission) just how fast the car they were looking at could go through my favorite local twisties. I'd go through first, they go through next. Sold more cars to girls that way.

Thanks! It looks like I've bought one and yet never sat in one so the 6'3" part makes me very happy. I'm buying the car in VA and getting it shipped. Hopefully in about a week or so I'll be having some fun.

IMHO they are truly beautiful and unique cars.

Interesting thread. I am picking up a 2007 Roadster Friday in Memphis for a friend in Mexico. Looking forward to the leisurely trip back to Texas. I know nothing about the car, yet.
