    I like it... :)

    It's certainly a more resolved and pleasing design than the Scimitar aping Z3 Coupe. ;)

    Messy piece of faux retro. Call in Jonathan Ive.

    a few things simply don't fit together pretty well .. looks like the design got the usual "let's make a coupé out of a cabriolet" treatment ... which is not known for it's success rate but it will sell better than the abnormal z3 coupé (which i personally like ... but i like a lot of these non 08/15 cars)

    That writer is so full of ****. Use enough big words and people are even more impressed with the car. Its almost like BMW wrote it and asked him to publish it.

    Like the design, except for that weird diagonal line leading from the front tire. WTF?

    that's the problem with Bangle: he makes about 80-90% of the design very good looking and then he screws it up with the remaining 10-20%

    have never really liked the look of the z4- the hood has always seemed too large...

    but this coupe looks better than the convertable

    The only BMW automotive product that makes me go wow when I see it these days is the 5 series. That is a nice car.

    It's definitelty an improvement on the M Coupe. Some of the lines are a bit fussy , but the overall shape has better proportions.

    It can't hold a candle to the Porsche Cayman, of course.

    I heard that, a 928 redux. Well, the Cayman is the only new Porsche coupe I can ever even dream of maybe affording.

    Anything Porshe makes is awesome, except that stupid SUV named after a pepper. :mad: :rolleyes:

    Works better than the roadster IMO. But it's still not cool.

    Is that the offshore version of the Cayenne?

    Not quite. It's the hard top version of the Boxter.

    Lord, no! The Cayenne is an automotive middle finger to good taste.

    Oh, I thought that was a typo. I'd never heard of the Cayman.

    It's very new, it's very cool. But it's a very bad name. :eek:

    I dig it, but I'm biased cause I like my Z4's design as well. :) I will agree that the line contrasts with the curved top. This isn't the case on the convertible Z4 because of the lines in the rag top.
