Great looking car, and what a nice way to become acquainted with it. Enjoy!

Congrats on joining the fold. I like the stiffness of the M Coupe, lends an air of old-school, no-compromises sports car to it, especially with the Sport button on; the suspension comes into its own on a track or at high speeds.

Nice color combo as well - Interlagos Blue looks great on the Coupe, and the small cabin needs the light of a light Sepang or Imola interior.

What made you choose the Z4 M Coupe? It's something of a forgotten gem.

A shot of mine:

Thanks man, Interlagos Blue is easily one of the most beautiful colors BMW offers. Factor that with the M// Coupe and you have a stunning ride.

Congrats Huntsman. That's a great looking car and not something you see everyday. I guess it's a manual since they all came that way, AFAIK.

Did any of you M coupe owners ever compare to the regular Z4 coupe?

Thanks. =) Yeah... it wasn't exactly a tough call after I test-drove pretty much all sporty mid-class SUVs that were contemplable/affordable. The Q5 definitely offers the best price-performance ratio and overall package ( at least in this price range ) with so many strengths that the very few weaknesses are hardly worth mentioning in my book. Go for it...

I did. I was thisclose to buying a 3.0si coupe when BMW started dumping the M Coupes due to slow sales - I wound up getting the M for about a grand more than the si would have cost. The mags that paid any attention to the Z4 coupes at all liked the si more than the M, but there wasn't much in it for me. The ride would be a lot nicer once you removed the run-flats and the extra trunk space was good, but the S54B32 makes up for it.

I got this back in December, did a few things to it so far:

2010 Altima Coupe 3.5 6 speed, with red leather.

Yeah, I have been reading through the reviews and saw the same thing, so I was thinking maybe the si would be better for me since it would be my only car, but they're actually quite a bit more rare than the M... I guess if I do decide to pull the trigger I'll probably just end up getting whichever I first find a good deal on that's reasonably close...

FWIW, the non-M Z4 coupes are slightly more practical because the battery's not in the trunk taking up a huge chunk of storage space. Not that these are practical cars to start with.

Beauty, mainly, epb. Also, I appreciate that you never see them on the road. I love fastbacks, and I wanted something with a stick that was a little violent, that I perhaps at some time could take to a track and have a little fun with. The Jag takes care of me for when I want to tour. The only other car I was considering at all was an '07 Lotus Exige S, but it pushes the impracticality just too far, and at $10k more. Though I love it's manical stare. Did you debadge yours? Is that Imola interior? Very nice. I would really, really, like to put M6 wheels on mine.

Yep, six on the floor.

Why do the M's not have run-flats?

Yeah, I flew out to buy the car, and for a moment I wasn't sure if my luggage -- only carry ons -- would all fit! ~H

^ I really do like the M6 wheels on the M coupes. do it.

At the time, run-flats weren't good enough for M cars, though that seems to have changed with the M trucks.

Congrats on a beautiful car, BTW. Hope you enjoy it for years to come.
