New 's' designation for US cars again (Z4 in BMW Mag)

Got my BMW Magazine today.

Don't think this has been discussed, but there's is now Z4 3.0si with the 255hp and a base Z4 3.0 with the 215hp. And they get angel eyes. And that's all I can remember right now.

Last I remember the 's' being used was for an e36 coupe, as in 328is. Think they'll come back to the 3's?

I doubt they will bring it back to the 3 but we may see it on another model soon.

Don't know about that , but how about an Alpina B7 ?

That would be a 500 hp supercharged 7 Series due in July.

Thats something sweet for all you wannabes in here driving your little 3's.

Work Hard, Boys - the future is near !

It's "3.0si", not "si".
