Winding Road Magazine pits two of the top German born roadsters – the BMW zDrive35i and the Porsche Boxster S against each other.
Heres the first live action footage of AC Schnitzers E89 Z4, in some nice drifting action on the track being stacked against some other nice tuner cars.
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!

BMW has its whole "Joy" marketing campaign as you may know. Part of that has been an artist promotion in Romania. Alexandru Mirea came up with an interesting take on BMWs Joy, namely Origami!

People continue to take deliveries of their spanking new E89 Z4s. ZPost member lightning shares a night time photoshoot of his car with everyone and promises more to follow
With work keeping me very busy these days, only now have I had the chance to write up my last road trip from 2 weeks ago. The area surrounding Lancaster, PA is perhaps most famous for its Amish and Mennonite residents. My goal, however, was the usual: fun roads, pretty scenery, and interesting historical sites.
My point of departure was Columbia, PA, which is right on the banks of our old friend the Susquehanna River. This town merits a much lengthier visit, as it is steeped in history. The area was originally the home of the Native American Susquehannocks (whose name apparently means "People of the Muddy River"). John Wright settled here in 1726 and started Wrights Ferry. … CONTINUED
I really enjoyed this article posted on examiner.com. Its a nicely worded review of the Z4 which briefly hits on all the important points of the car
"Steering is very precise. The only learning curve for me was the massive distance from the front wheels to the steering wheel. Sitting so far back, it’s hard to triangulate exactly where the front wheels are – at first. In time, I was able to precisely position the Z4 on any curve. With a little extra stick (with the traction control off), the rear end slides out on command. On more than one occasion, sliding all fours was not only possible but ridiculously fun. "… CONTINUED
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).
