A reluctant cool. But only because I think it looks a bit too Porschey. I actually quite like the Z3 and Z4 (would never have one because obviously I am not a hairdresser).

Hmmmm

I'm regretting this already but I rather think it's ... cool. The badge is a big turn-off though.

re: BMW Z8

It's neither cool, nor uncool.

Bit of a fence sitter on this 'un, can't make my mind up.

Nothing to do with the badge, I don't give a fig about that. I think it's because at first glance it's just AN other roadster. But in reality it's a very fast, very exclusive roadster.

Ah hell, it's cool. Just.

Why? i cannot understand the anti BMW sentiments on this forum!

BMW's are an excellent brand, is it the stereotypical BMW driver that this is all targeted against?

re: BMW Z8

Seriously un-cool, not because it's a BMW but due to the Retro styling, Retro can be cool if well executed but this i feel is trying too hard.

re: BMW Z8

omg, the designer must of found his compass for this model, it has curves.

Cool, but probably because Brosnan is so uncool next to it. A bit like taking your ugly friend to the disco.

Personally, I disliked BMWs long before I bought an Alfa, it's not just this forum, it's a universal dislike for the brand and its drivers. My mates think BMW drivers deep down inside are angry people - which is true from the mates we have that drive beemers - one of them crashed into another BMW not long ago and both drivers got very angry on the side of the road, we sat there and tried not to laugh too hard. To me it's the stereotypical BMW driver that does it, self-centred, self-important people who can't be bothered to indicated because of course, they do own the road.

Followed one into work this morning round a series of roundabouts and junctions, not one indicator flashed. I tutted and thought 'typical BMW driver' ... and lo and behold, this thread appears!

I saw one in Munich and all those with negative views should see one in the flesh before judging.

That's the idea of an internet poll isn't it? Vote on it and spout off from the pictures
