Still havenít seen one

Getting close to 6 months since release and I still have not seen a new z4 on the road yet. I live in north jersey and with my job I am on the road all the time. I see some boosters a lot of corvettes but no z4 . Am I the only one?

I haven't seen a Z4 on the road yet either, only the ones in the dealership.

Through the end of August, BMW has sold 1,886 Z4's in North America, so they are not exactly flying out of dealerships.

There is someone in my neighborhood that has a G29, but other than that one car that I see repeatedly, I have yet to see one in the wild.

i live in los angeles and still haven't seen one on the road other than when i test drove it.

Warm, sunny southern california. I'm glad though, I'm putting my order in soon, and having a car no one else really has will be nice.

I wanted to pick a car that was a little different in color and was not so popular. When I first went to dealers there were 30i San fran red cars everywhere but when i go on websites now you cant find one around here. They are all Misano, Black, White....and a few frozen grey. Guess it doesnt matter much what color I choose since I do not see any of the cars on the road anyway.

Have not seen a single one in the bay area except for ONE being test driven. but love this as my Z4 M coupe was one of about 1300 and every few months would see one so rarity is a plus in an area where "exclusive cars" seem all too commonplace (in the neighborhood are 6 Ferraris, 5 lambos including an Aventador, Ford GT, couple Bentleys, 4 maseratis - and the bmws are too many to count - mostly SUVs or the hatchback variants and tons of electric golf carts - I mean Teslas) . Rarity is a plus so actually excited numbers are so low.....

I haven't even ordered it yet. I want a new sdrive30i, and I'm waiting for the october incentives to come out before (since the 30i doesn't have the incentives the m40i has.... , I kinda hate the M body kit and want the mediterranean blue). I guess I'd have it by end of the year-mid jan if all goes well.

seriously.... if you want a white or black or silver one there's plenty. and if you want a sport line almost all of them have the awful cheap looking gloss black plastic. Unless you want just another grayscale car you basically have to order as it is

Wife Sees New Z4

My wife texted me a picture of a new Z4 in the vicinity. Uhmm, thanks for keeping an eye out but not really what I'm looking for. I guess she's not much of a car gal! Still haven't seen one in the wild.

I saw one when the car first came out in the wild, and since then, zero.

I guess the upside is that if you look after your G29, it should look new years from now, just like the E85 Z4 does in that picture. And the E85 and G29 are much more kindred spirits than the G29 and E89.

I've seen one G29 on the road here in my town - black with red interior. Haven't seen any of the Z4's cousin - the new Supras yet.

I have seen the Supra on A1A. Chalk up one in that category.

I passed another M40i going the other way at the weekend.

I think we gave each other a subtle wave, but we may have been just stretching our fingers

Saw one in Geneva, and a couple in LA. Objectively speaking, this segment has shrunken considerably. The Boxster/Cayman are the highest selling and even their sales are a fraction of what they used to be.
