you don't really..... i think cause the reason none of us got excited about it was because (i haven't clicked the link you sent).. but last i heard, the new one with that engine was still in the 3500lb range....

for the weight... i'd rather have the 3 series...

I wasn't planning on getting one, I just like how the new z4's look (aside from the convertible aspect)... it would be sick if it just came in a dedicated hard top, that would save some weight too

I like the idea of a hardtop but the looks are debatable. To each his own I guess.

+10000. It's so sad that the new z4 only comes as a convertible. Even with the previous Z I was only a fan of the hardtop version. I assume it wasn't selling as much as the convertible.

wow. i think it looks amazing. its as if the z4 took steroids. its so much more aggressive. the previous z4 was a chick car. this look likes the z8s younger pissed off brother. asides from the weight which i wish was low 3s. maybe around 3100 lbs or so. this car just looks amazing.

Really? lol...my opinion is the exact opposite...I think the new one looks like something my 73 year old grandma would drive. Seriously.

This is my dad's 07 M coupe--you really think this is a chick car?

Yes, which is why I think BMW should be adding the 7-speed DCT tranny to the 2010 335i as an option...I hope!!!

Exactly, you would have to be a little crazy to pass on the M3. I can't believe they priced the Z4 so close to the M3. Stupid really?
