Spotted Rowdy on the Sunshine Motor Way today. I just came out off the on-ramp, and spotted a space grey 1er and wonder if it's a forum member. Got the flash next and then saw Rowdy driving. Nice car!

Spotted Liub's 135i parked on St. Kilda Rd about 10PM last night. Only recognised the car because of his number plates being the same as the forum name

I thought it was great. The DCT was excellent, and after driving it in Sport+ mode it was much quicker and satisfying than the auto in my 135. Didn't quick have the punch of my car but I'm sure with a tune it would be very nice. Suspension was stiffer too.

I think it had active steering which took a little getting used to. Didn't like the steering wheel, ours is much better.

So I'm not sure if I would buy one though, I do love the look of it. For $130k I could be in a second hand Cayman S.

I felt the same way after I drove it too. The DCT is phenomenal and the sport mode settings are pretty cool. I really dig the interior of the Z4, I think it looks really sweet but the steering wheel isn't as meaty as ours. I think the Z4sdrive35is model addresses all of those issues. I got so many looks when I drove that car around town. Such a fun car

Still OT, the salesmen also tried to tell me that the Z4 will outhandle a Porsche easily... Didn't even say which Porsche, he said any! Said he was at a track day with the Z4 and a 911, and the customers were saying they were better in the Z4.

Nothing more I hate than a salesmen being massively biased. Said it a few times that the Z4 was the much better car. Cheaper yes, more powerful yes, but better handling?!


And one more thing, all the 35i models apparently come with DCT correct? If this is so, why is DCT an option? If there is no other gearbox available, then it isn't an option and we shouldn't be charged for it!

OT - I agree about salesmen being incredibly biased. I think that's an inherent trait of any salesman at any dealership I've been to. I've heard some pretty wild stories and that's why I take any advice from any salesman very lightly and do my own independent research. Everyone seems to rate their own product more than anything else these days. I think the Z4sdrive35is version would put up a better fight against a Cayman S. Even if it was it wouldn't be by much anyway. Having said that I haven't actually driven the "is" variant yet or a Cayman but everyone speaks of them very highly.

I'm not too sure about the new Z4 coming with no DCT option. I thought it was standard too
