Love the car. The commercial is cringey.

Let me know when you do ... for part numbers and how it went. I have now seen a couple of red ones with the cerium grey bits and they are ok. The roll protection loops in cerium will probably annoy me.

It reminded me of a Fiat Spider too. It’s not doing it for me. Glad I went with the Boxster.

If you went with the Fiat why are you on this blog?
Fiat? I sell BMW vehicles for a living.

So I want to echo the comment about how stupid it is to have a non-M car going to M town. M town is dumb idea anyway and this cheapens the brand and symbol even more.

Secondly, I love (actually hate) how it shows the guy shifting the gear shift lever as though it was a manual car despite not offering an actual manual tranny in the car.

I used to be a purist, but for some people the pure M cars are unattainable, so it brings the aspiration to the masses and builds a brand following, which is a good thing for hard core traditionalists in the long run as it helps ensure BMW has a strong future. Plus, the subsidies from the M performance upgrades that people pay through the nose for will continue to fund R & D for the true M cars. I say let it be.

On the second point - I completely agree! Don't pretend like you're driving a manual-pretender driver guy.

The ZF is most entertaining in manual mode; that's how I drove mine nearly all the time.

But still, the ad was unremarkable and completely pointless.

My neighbor drives an Audi A3 convertible, base model. Keeps calling it his "roadster". I told him my Z4 M Roadster was an actual roadster and that his car was just a convertible.

He also thinks that his A3 is "pretty similar" to my M4.
