I drove the new Z4 4 cylinder with M-Sport package at my dealership. Meh. I'd like to think that M40 would rock. But... don't want to pay BMW prices for a Toyota. 🤷🏼*♂️

This could easily have been a real head turner. But BMW will always add ugly elements to their regular cars so they don't look as good as the icons, in this case the Z8.

I think most modern BMWs are way too busy - scoops, vents and odd lines.

I hope it drives more like a sports car - they claim the same thing for the M850i - at ~4500 lbs, that is not a 911 for sure.

Totally agree with the busy overly done designs. I call it the sportification of cars, in general, by all manufacturers. Wish BMW would go back to a more classy-sport design theme.

I may switch the M40i cerion grey parts with the black parts once the car arrived. Red blacked out looks so much better .
