You either like the styling and design, or you don't.

If you bat for the other side you might think it's girly but it's a great looking car IMO.

The old Z4 was "eh" in my book. The NEW Z4 is badass in every respect. I'm not fond of banglized styling, but the new one is fantastic. Big aggressive front end and a hardtop that actually LOOKS like a hardtop!!!

With the 35 engine, that'd be one hell of a fun car... especially on the track!



Frankly, with some easy bolt on mods to 400hp, this will eat the Z8 alive and look all the better doing it...

z4 girly?

Well I'm about to trade my e46 330ci with 150k on the odometer for a 2003 z4 convertible 3.0i six speed.

I tell ya what I feel some of your argument saying the car may be a little girly but after driving the damn thing I absolutely love it. The outside does have some strange appeal with all the screwy panels and what not but I actually dig the body.

Honestly I love my e46, but this damn z4 has changed my mind, and if I could only afford an M series I'd totally pick one up over a m3 (and I LOVE the M3 especially the 88-91 models)

the 3.0 is fast, and from what I'm reading it's tops out at 155, compared to the 136ish my coupe did. I don't plan on modding much until I can afford an ESS supercharger for it, then it's balls to the wall, unless I decide it's time to get an M-series.

As far as the girlyness goes, I think you need to be comfortable with your sexuality to drive any car, because when I see any kia drive down the street I instantly think fruitcake... Don't forget it's a bmw and that says alot, and like an above poster mentioned, if you like it screw em.

Drive what you like, not what other people think

If you like the Z4, then get it. Its a awesome car.

Don't care what other people think, it's like how some guys can rock a pink polo with collars popped up.

I can only think of a couple of girly cars. VW Cabrio and a VW beetle.

Z4? I wouldn't consider something that is sprung really stiff (that's what she said) and kind of twitchy at its limits to be a girly car. If anything, an auto 325i with premium pkg is more girly.
