I had not seen this car, other than pictures on the dealer's website (it's still listed as of 3/30: http://tinyurl.com/da5uy3). Final purchase price was considerably lower than listed... On Friday 3/27 I drove 550 miles to Toledo, Ohio to trade my 2003 530i for a 2007 Z4 3.0si coupe. The drive there was a chore; my legs were cramping and my wife was not very happy. We stopped at a random exit off the Ohio Turnpike near Cleveland, stayed for the night and drove the remaining 100 miles or so to pick up the Z4 on Saturday. Saturday afternoon around 12:30, we set out for home in our Z4. I couldn't believe the difference in the way I felt about driving, and she about riding (she hasn't driven it yet...). Somehow, the M Sport seats were more comfortable for extended periods than the standard leather seats in my E39. The 6-speed manual is light, with very short throws. The steering is perfectly weighted, and the turning radius is ridiculously tight - helpful when you have to make U-Turns everywhere because you just want to drive past everything. The 18" wheels and sport suspension provide a level of cornering confidence that suggest you would have to be doing something illegal to exceed the car's limits on public roads. In short, this car made me remember why I buy BMWs and why I love driving. That said, there are some downsides to this car: 1. It was a dealer service loaner (possible abuse?), and they either did not want to certify the car for CPO at the price I paid for it, or couldn't because it was owned by the dealership. 2. I've read a little about the quirks in the E85 such as 1st to 2nd shifting issues, does anyone have any suggestions for what to watch out for? Overall, no buyer's remorse whatsoever. I smile every time I see my car now, and grin when I start it up. I plan on keeping this car forever.
