Uncool. The convertible would be seriously so.

Re: BMW Z4 Coupe

I just think it's plain ugly quite apart from being a BMW with all the connotations that go with it. May well be a perfectly competent car if the reports are accurate.

Re: BMW Z4 Coupe

I love it, seen one, been in one, kinda left some residue on one (oops)

I think it's a far better car than the rag top it's related to.

(The one I was in was a Z4 M in a sort of Titanium Copper Metallic that looked fabulous, almost as if the car was gently cooling after being set on fire )

Re: BMW Z4 Coupe

Despite the Pavlovan hate response drilled into most of AO when it comes to BMW, I think this is cool.

It is fairly rare too and is certainly better looking in the metal than the convertible. Chiselled good looks rather than Italianate voluptuous beauty but handsome nonetheless; and it has that something that sets it apart from the herd.

Furthermore, it doesn't drive quite so well as a Boxster and some of the other competition without after-market upgrades to the chassis which is oddly endearing for a BMW - I think so anyway.

The C6 is still uncool.....

Re: BMW Z4 Coupe

Sub Zero for me, I'm not quite sure how by adding a roof my opinion of the car changed so radically but I was not a fan of the convertible, Its the classic sportscar shape that does it for me I think, its great to drive too, driving position is good, just feels right, everything falls nicely to hand, unlike the Alfa where you sit perched.

BMW could learn a thing or two from Alfa about building a quality interior as thats its biggest let down, feels really low rent.

Re: BMW Z4 Coupe

Californian design on a Euro car is uber-uncool.

(Apart from that Opel GT thingy. )

I would love an M5.

Re: BMW Z4 Coupe

I think in the right colour they look quite nice, boring to drive though. The only BM for me is an M3 CSL.....hubba!

Re: BMW Z4 Coupe

I never used to like them but think they look ok now. Sure they are also good to drive.

Despite this, however, they are not cool, not least of which because they have unfortunately attracted the mid-life crisis brigade.
