The 19' rims look great!! But there isn't really a wheel, I would say, it doesn't look great. They will all harmonise perfect to the sporty character of the E89!
hope they bring this E85 wheel back!
Looks like that one is replaced by the V spoke style 294 (18") :t-hands:
I won't miss that one at all... Don't like these kind of rims. But of course BMW could still offer it, as long as it has fans - why not?
Yes that's what I thought too.
Maybe my taste is weird, but it was the most beautiful rim I had seen in a while. Anything that evokes the track I like.. (and this rims evokes split design racing rims with its peripheral bolts). Also the rims are symmetrical and not fussy. Not sure I like any of the new wheels yet. Let's wait and see.
No false hope , Embrace the new day.
Actually "Never Stand Still" was quite a lucrative initiative for BMW and indeed in our history.
We are certain to return to a similar concept sometime in the future , no matter what people say it was a interesting approach in which to launch a luxury sedan.
I really like what I am seeing so far. Looking forward to seeing a good view of the front end!
I've noticed quite a few design similarities to the Z3 that the current Z4 seemed to have skipped:
The bonnet shut line for example is into the front wheel arch, as in the Z3, and the rear wheel arch is big and chunky, and looks a bit like the Z3 one to me too.
The third brake light is also incorporated into the bootlid similarly:
Even the new wheels look quite familiar - second ones remind me of the Z8.
And just for comparison:
So far so good then, its a nice evolution from the E85, but its nice to see some of the design I liked in the Z3 show through too!
Superb post, Amo! :eusa_clap With those thought through design details it's going to look nothing short of amazing!
ahh the beautiful Z3... poetic
design - design - design... Z3 - Z4 - Z8 blablabla :eusa_doh:
even if I risk repeating myself... What ABOUT THE M V8???
this thing needs power!:t-drive:
,-) sorry... :t-crazy2:
The M boys don't have to work on the CS anymore, so give them the new Z4 to toy with...
yep, make us happy bmw...
They will, there´s no other proyect on development under the M badge, having apart from the X6 and X5 M, so till 2011 when the F10 M5 will be presented they have time to make the new Z4 M a true beast.
if I am not mistaken, the e89 is based on the actual 3-series so...
no big deal...anything they need, is available... V8, DKG... so just build it!
I would rather prefer they give the MZ4 the TT V8 which we will se in the forthcoming X5/X6. I think it will be more of a monster in the Z4 then the NA V8.
imagine....BMW has the marketing guts to sell a Z4 M V8TT with 407HP/600NM for - say...62000€ (Basic).
And than Alpina makes it a 1600kg / 500HP/700NM Car for say - 70.000€!!
EVERY Sportcarfanatic would want one! An insame Car for a "bargain" price...
even better than the Nissan GTR!
But - as I say - the BMW Marketing guys have no guts...only in stupid design-trails...
^^For some reason I highly doubt anyone who is looking for a GT-R will cross shop with the Z4M.
Bring back Z4 Coupe and make a M version our of it. I prefer current Z4 Coupe over the Roadster.
