Believe it or not, two times last year I have had a couple people ask me if it was "The New Z" lol.

'98's represent! Imagine no traction control with twice the power! I have actually been driving the car more and more in the rain, just staying out of the boost.

Regardless, the Z4Mcoupe blows both out of the water!

The Z4 does some things better, but it's, also bigger and a bit more tamed-diluted. There is a rawness that is very enjoyable. There are many E36/7/8 owners who did not jump to the E85/86 when offered the choice. It's not about price either as a last year MZ3 Coupe with an S54 can hit $30k, enough to buy a Z4M

You are 100% in the minority on that. After years of ownership, cars shows, auto-x, getting groceries, I have never had a car that was viewed as "beautiful" by young old, male, female, all kinds-the way the MZ3 has.

This thread is an excuse for me to picture bomb, so please bear with me!
