BMW Z4 2010

I found this pictures of the new Z4, what do you think? I reckon it looks much better than the current one.

Looks excellent! Hope the snow white leather makes it as an option. Wonder what engines will be offered...looks like an N54 in there...

nice pictures carlos. the US production run has already stopped and the new model will be produced in Germany. With dct and the m3 engine in a nicer looking body than the m3, its a very compelling buy. mid 2009 for the lesser models and late 2009 for the z4m is my prediction.

Might be a bit tricky with the electric handbrake on the gear lever..

Externally a little better looking than the current model yes, (reminds me a little of the 6 series) but still not to my liking - never been a fan of this model Beemer and can't even look at its predecessor (Z3) without getting sick...I'm sure the original Batman and Robin would've loved it however

I must say though the interior of this new Z4 looks just beautiful, very nice indeed :smile:

Yes, professor I reckon the new Z4 will start selling at the end of 2009 and should be arriving in Australia at the beginning of 2010, wonders which engines are going to be there ( I know the V8 from the M3 is) wonder if they are going to put a diesel like Audi did with the TT?

That interior is stunning... almost makes the 1's interior look cheap (and I love the interior on the 1)

I love the pop up nav on it, as well as the stitching along the dash.

Beautiful car!

Stunning. Although I don't think I can't live with a 2 seater. Lately I have been rather infatuated with the idea of a M3 sedan. Performance and practicality..... hmmmm.
