382 is the horsepower in metric units.

But seriously - as I understand it, North American M40i Z4's will be 382 hp - 340 hp will be the output of European versions of that car, owing to tighter emission's regulations in Europe. 340 in the Canadian ad is likely a typo.

Since the spy thread is locked I guess I'll just put it here. A Z4 with red leather spotted in SK.

That looks goofy as hell with such an absurdly short wheelbase and massive wheels (20"??)!

So based on the tail pipes I am guessing this is not the M40i but the 30i?

Break, break: Has anyone seen any mention of the legroom in this car? I've hunted for the specification, but it's nowhere to be found. I ask because I read somewhere that the wheelbase is shorter than Toyota's two-seater "86," and the interior of that car is really tight.

I'm truly baffled at how many people think this thing is good looking.

The butt is too high - and the front end looks like a Fiat 124.

Just too damn busy. Such a let down, particularly when you compare it to the timeless design of the Z3.

I understand that the legroom in the G29 is 1 (25mm) longer than the previous E89 model. This is in spite of the reduced wheelbase.
