Here is the first video of the Z4 GT3 running laps at the VLN Einstellfahrten 2010. The BMW Z4 GT3 is powered by a four-litre, eight-cylinder engine producing approximately 480 bhp and it sounds its soundtrack reflects every bit of those horsepowers!
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
Edmunds recently took the sDrive35is out for a spin and give us their impressions:
The 2010 BMW Z4 sDrive35is wants to take its place next to the Audi TT-RS, Mercedes-Benz SLK and Porsche Boxster S/Cayman S, and it has some visual snap to show it.
Performance certainly isnt a problem. The 2011 BMW Z4 sDrive35iss engine is easily the most effective inline-6 with a BMW badge right now
I thought this was a very interesting note posted by BimmerFile
With the release of the Z4 35is BMW will be offering only one transmission; the DCT. Our understanding is that the manual 6 speed Z4 (specifically the clutch) cant handle the torque that comes with the engine upgrade in the car.

Courtesy of BimmerFile is a nicely compiled video of all the clips floating around the internet right now:
Japanese tuner 3D Design has released one of the first aftermarket aero part (front lip spoiler) for the E89 Z4. The lip is constructed from polyurethane and mounts to the factory mounting points.
The matte paint color look continues to be hot as a Zpost member puts together what’s probably the world’s first matte gray E89 Z4.
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!
