No, that's totally different.

Z4 coupe is very very sexy. I got a Z4M coupe for a loaner a while back. Fantastic car.

Designed by an all-female design team (Nadya Arnaout, interior; Juliane Blasi, exterior), the new Z4 boasts a much wider range of talents and a sophisticated, less contentious design...

Girly? I guess that depends on what you think makes a car girly. If being a small, light, nimble and fast afforadable sports car is girly then I guess we gotta toss the 911 in that group too. Is it ugly? Well from some angles yes I do agree that it is an ugly little SOB. I still don't totally like the look of the car but once your behind the wheel of the car any negitive thoughts go completely out the window. In the M Coupes case your talking about a car that takes the best bits of the e46 M3 like the S54, Comp package brakes, M varible diff and Comp Package steering rack and puts on this on the stiffest chassis BMW has ever built. Not to mention it is also 250 pounds lighter then an e46 m3 and the S54 in the Z4 M Coupe runs the ecu from the e60 m5/m6. Don't get me wrong I love the M3! I still think it is the best looking car BMW has ever made! I have had my friends 01's imola red 6 speed m3 for a couple weeks here and there and my mom has an e92 m3 but when it comes to which feels the most badass to drive I have to give the nod to the M coupe.

the Z4 is not girly at all, but I prefer the new styling than the old one.

I have a girly car to some and rock it. It's fun, looks good, and gets tons of compliments. I would rock a z4 just as hard; coupe or roadster.

ahh, the irony. but personally, i like the z4. after my parents bought one the styling grew on me. all that flame surfacing makes it interesting to wash. for me the one to have is a z4M coupe in sepang bronze.

oh and the new (e89?) z4 in deep sea blue with coral red interior

I think the Mazda Miata is a great car, that said, it is still girly.

Volkwagen New Beetle is girly, so is a 280 SLK or C230 hatchback or v6 mustang. But this is just my opinion.

v6 mustang? so is not only about the styling its engines now. a v6 mustang is faster than all e46 325s and 328s. to each is own lol
