    Over this past weekend a friend of mine told me that he read that there would not be a Z4M, coupe or convertible, for 2009!! Does anyone know if this is factual in any way?

    Weren't they going to stop making the Z4 in a few years? :confused:

    I do not know about the M versions yet, but there is a revamped Z4 planned for 2009.

    Z-car future

    Z4 production in Spartanburg is tentatively scheduled to end in August, I think. Manufacture of that car will move to. . . hmmm. . . Regensburg, maybe? Anyway, we get the X3, the X5, the X6---anything with an X in its name.

    I don't know if they'll make the current Z4 in Germany or just go on hiatus until the next version is viable. That one will get the twin-turbo six (N54)---and supposedly the V8 in an M version.

    If they sell off the moribund stock of current Z4s before they launch the new one, I'd say we'll see it around 2015.

    Satch, what color and options did you get on your z4M?
    how many miles are on it, and what do you like most about it?

    Twenty Questions?


    Um. . . I'm not sure this isn't a different thread entirely, and I don't really have much time right now, but it's white---Alpinweiss, I suppose---with whorehouse-red interior. That's what made it saleproof. White makes a great background for flames.

    Options? It has options?! Well, I don't know. It has shiny wood on the dash. Is that an option?

    It had just over 3000 miles when I bought it; they hadn't changed the break-in oils yet, so that service was late. It currently has about 6000 miles. I'll change oil at 10,000.

    What do I like best about it? Same as riding a motorcycle: It. Make. Me. Feel. Good.
    Mind you, I would be having just as much fun if it were a 150-horsepower four-banger, but the S34 delinquency factor cannot be denied, arrh arrh ARRH!
