Some say that would have been a good place to at least offer the manual transmission. I tend to disagree, it should have been paired with the highest engine because that's where the enthusiast money gravitates.
Anyhow, I do wonder what actual percentage of this car's sales are destined for "show queen" cars.
At least Toyota did a nice job of the chassis tuning.
The third Z4 and probably the worst. That first one was quite gross too.
I think th efirst one was, like all ABngle Bimmers, a love it or hate it case. To me, the dramatic sports car proportions with the short overhnags, the long, msucular nose and extremely short back made it a lovely car.
