Thanks for posting. I think the article is well written and on point though I don't really consider the Z4 and Supra competitors as they are basically the same car under it all so a good review for the Supra is a good thing for the Z4 and vice versa. I didn't and wouldn't consider buying a Supra as I specifically was looking for an upscale drop top roadster so I understand they are for different markets. It's too bad that BMW wouldn't let them track the Z4 as I wonder how much of a performance difference there would actually be and how much is percieved by the louder exhaust and different damper settings and steering feel between the two. I frequent several motorcycle forums where guys install a louder exhaust and insist that the bike is more powerful when the dyno tells another story.....not saying the Supra couldn't be quicker but I wouldn't let "seat of the pants" provide a definitive answer.



Cheers,
Dave
