I look forward to seeing it in the spring!

That was part of what got me to look for a Z4 actually. The 3.0i is pretty quick too. Not an ///M, but it's a hell of a jump from my 323i in performance and handling.

I just need to get a new set of tires on it. It has 6 year old Nitto N555's, which really, really suck.

Are the Ventus V12 evo's still the best cheap ultra high performance summer tire that doesn't suck in the rain? Looks like about $750 for a full set for the Z. I was also looking at the Dunlop Z1 Star Spec's, but a friend had them at the same time as me and they lasted a good 5000 miles less than my Hankooks and started gripping far worse than mine after the first 5000 miles.
