I will wait for final judgement until I actually see the car in person, but it does look a lot better in BMW's new bmwfilms.com movie with clive owen called hostage.

I first thought miss, but it grew on me and now I'm leaning towards hit.

I first thought hit, but i saw a road test on TV and the front didn't appeal to me as much as it does in pictures. I like the back a lot though. I havent seen one in the flesh, which is when i will make a final decision on the looks, but on the telly it looked significantly bigger than the Z3 :?:

yea, i think BMW did a good job with the z4. It looks alot more revolutionized, yes the front looks retarted but the back is nice and so on.

I would say miss. I saw one at my local shopping center about a week ago. The back doesn't look too bad, but the front totally threw me off. I would much rather have a Mercedes SLK (especially with AMG package). Lemme try to post a pic, but if i can't, then sorry.

There is talk of an 8 cyl engine for it. The engine bay is certainly large enough for it. And if you want a trophy the lights on the side with the emblem come out with a counterclockwise twist.

lemme give you some specs. and you decide;

if you get the 2.5 liter- 184 horse power
3.0 liter- 225 horse power (which is pretty good for a BMW)

the handling is said to be amazing due to the Dynamic Stability Control

now you can ride on dubs with tire diameters of 16, 17, 18 inches but that depends on the engine and suspension

its 0-60 5.9 (kinda slow for me but still good)

now prices- 2.5 liter is $33,795
}both typical BMW prices
3.0 liter is $40,945

in my opinion HIT ultimatly because i am a HUGE Bmw fan!

hit, definitely a hit

styling is alot better then the Z3 crap theyve been shooting out since goldeneye. love the back, fronts alright, but my favorite parts is the lil turn signal in the bmw logo on the sides. but id much perfer the m5. 0-60 4.8, thats a hit right there.
