Default BMW Z4 revealed...completely

http://e89.zpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=193159

Maybe someone a little more savy than I can put the pictures up here.
I think it looks gorgeous and if it does indeed have the 3.0TT as an option under the hood, someday one will be in my garage.

I like everything except the nose. It just seems out of proportion with the rest of the car.

Rims suck. Color is horrible.
But overall, I think it is a great update. Never was a fan of the old one, but this has a very nice look.... slightly too busy with just a few too many creases, but very nice none the less.

Of course I am sure it's gonna start over $40k, so i'm not that excited about it.

I still think a lot of the new bimmers (especially the 6-series) look like a melting whale...especially the front.

No M version, they're too busy making suv's. Overall, I like it! Much better than the current one. With the N54 turbo engine, who needs an M version?

actually, no i meant bangle.

He is the reason that BMW styling has taken the direction it has. While the new generation Z4 looks a little better, its still using all of Bangle's flame surfacing underpinnings (and his asinine attempt at recreating the Guggenheim in a roadster).

Ive always said, just because the tooling allows you to make uber-complex previously impossible G2/G3 surfaces doesn't mean you should.

For christ sake, can we see it in another color? Who in hell buys a car like this in beige?

I like the new look, overall, though.

i agree it is better than the z4 BUT i owned a z3 and i will NEVER understand how they took one of the best looking cars on the planet [the z3] and replaced it with the z4.
but i will say i like this better than the old z4 but still not as good as the z3.

^ I thought my old Z4 looked way better than the older Z3. The Z3 always looked like a girls car but that's just my opinion. However, the new Z4 looks way better than both. I actually wouldn't mind getting one of these. Good job BMW!

There may be less pull with this one being a folding hardtop. I'd rather the shooting brake of the Z3 coupe than the Z4 hatch.
