those are computer generated photos - no? regardless, the rear does invoke 'mini m6', which I kind of like.

The front is odd, but the side is gorgeous. They got rid of Chris Bangle's sagging lines.

Don't know about over in the US, but over here the Z4 depreciates like a stone. I was thinking about pulling the trigger but they're losing a third of their value in less than 18 months! As I wanted a fairly unique colour combo I'l pass. Seriously considering an Atom if I can just find the right version...

It's a hardtop convertible.


Works great for someone like me who would pick a coupe for a roadster. Now I can have the best of both worlds

If you haven't noticed yet, all M-styled BMW's do... It's marketing.
