Racer.com had a chance to review the new Z4 sDrive35iS and lauds it "The best Z yet," while showing that BMW is not about to let its roadster slip off the radar of enthusiasts seeking an alternative to the Mercedes SLK and Nissan 370Z. Check out their review inside.

BMW Z4 sDrive 35iS: The best Z yet

When BMW launched its second-gen Z4 last year, we were disappointed to find that it had apparently abandoned its predecessors edgy, taut feel in a bid to find more mainstream appeal. The more relaxed nature and folding hard-top roof were enough for us to question … CONTINUED

Studie Japan has always been on the forefront when it comes to BMW tuning. Both Hamann and ACS give them first priority on basically all the newest parts. Here is their version of the AC Schnitzer E89 Z4.

Hood vents have been added while the side fenders have been modified a little.

Enjoy!

This new M-Sport kit which is said to include a full cosmetics kit as well as a mild power upgrade and subtle massaging of the suspension as well has been spied road testing once again. The car was previously caught at the ring undergoing more serious track testing and now that the car is doing road testing, the kit is likely very close to production. In fact, the package is likely complete and ready for sale and is likely awaiting the marketing nod to go to market!

Looks great, go BMW!

Auto Motor und Sports photogs have been able to snap some more pictures of the red E89 Z4 that were posted up earlier (and of higher resolution). ( http://e89.zpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=302539 ). Nevertheless these pictures do show the car is a different perspective and makes me appreciate more-so where BMW is going with this design.

The E89 Z4 is now testing at the ring with its Msport body (or performance aero kit) ! This is potentially the 3.5iM, a slightly uprated power version of the standard 3.5i.
