The new z4 is just plain ugly and with £50k to spend why wouldn’t you just buy a Porsche, a Noble or an S54 with 5k miles on it and watch it pay for your retirement :lol:

Know what you mean about ugly. It looks like an insect. Furthermore you're sitting too low behind the doors…… only your head and neck come above the door. It's the reason i didn't go for a Audi TT, it just doesn't look right.

And then there's the price……….

I had the same problem with an Audi A4 convertible vs a BMW 3 series convertible, went with the 3 series for arm out driving :D
