For £15K a Z3M would be good competition for a GTA. I think I'd have the GTA though..

The Z4 has a 70's feel to it - bit like the Triumph GT6 fastback or a Scimitar. The engine is very noisy and the ride rock hard but I love that!

The Z4M is the only BMW I would consider. Ugly and hard - Charles Bronson on wheels.

Re: 147GTA or BMW Z4M Coupe?

I love the Z4M Coupe, I think it looks way better than the GTA sorry,

The GTA is GORGEOUS, but personally the Z4M looks very Fastback like, and that appeals to me much more than the stout image the GTA comes with.

But, do I think it's worth double the price???? Well, in a word; No.

If I was on a budget and wanted a fast car like these I'd go with the GTA, but it would have to be a 156.

I kind of like that retro fastback look but couldnt live with the typical BMW dash and the fact the Z4 is common here - Alfa 147 GTA there are none in this country

Would love a chuckable rear drive chassis though - dont know how the Z4M would be but can only image it to be great fun.

Re: 147GTA or BMW Z4M Coupe?

BMZ4 Coupe is pig ugly and the inside is so bland its unbelivable.

147 GTA all day every day.

Re: 147GTA or BMW Z4M Coupe?

In all reality the GTA is outclassed by the Z4 in most areas. The Z4 is a well styled car with appealing proportions imho. The interior isn't quite up to Alfa style standards particularly the dash and clocks which are normal bland BMW. The seats are ok but again not up to Alfa standard.

What is frustrating is the 3.2 beeemer engine pumps out 343bhp with no turbos or gizmos, so why only 250bhp from the 3.2 GTA? - come on Alfa let the 149 GTA be a real brute!!
