Totally agree. Sounds good, pleasantly surprised by the acceleration (both from 0 to 60 as well as merging/passing), would have never thought this was a 4 cylinder had I not known.

1. Should've been a hardtop
2. Shouldn't cost what it costs
3. Should've had a manual option
4. Shouldn't have let Toyota have the better looking car.

No not at all. However the S2000 only came with 6MT and the new Z doesn't offer it at all, so any comparisons end right there.

I was only questioning because of the Shoulder shrug emoji which seemed like you are not happy with either car.

I don't think this Z4 is any where near S2000 except for the fact they both are 2 seater convertible roadsters. This Z4 actually reminds me of the MB SLC in terms of design and the availability of only AT.

In the grand scheme of Z cars I do no think this is that bad looking, yes no manual is disappointing, but overall the review was encouraging that it is a good car.

I agree about hard top. The low weight is nice and all but at the end of the day I prefer the comfort of a hard top.

I think it's ugly for a Z car and think the Toyota is uglier.

No Manual is annoying and only ZF is more annoying. That's the world we live in though.

No M version is ok the M40i is running M4 suspension according to round so it's really only missing an 'S' engine. But IMO all that means these days is its more expensive since to fix as the production engines are all basically the same.

Or.. that BMW will drop an S engine in when they feel like it some time down the road in a year or two... just like they did with the OG (original gangster ) Z4.... except this time they will call it the " First Ever Z4M Competition"..
