Congratulations Dear!!!

You summed it up abosolutely right, with 59 lac ex showroom in Delhi, it is like a steal. I myself think when people go for 5 series / 6 series why not for z4. But i know they are both different segments.

We are eagerly awaiting for more as in detailed review for z4 from your side & would like to know as much as possible about it.

PS : What is launch control

Launch control is the setup which lets you take off from stand still most effectively - No wheel spins, quick shifts. Similar mechanism as F1 cars.

i hear its surprisingly fuel efficent. how much is the cost of SLK350, porsche boxter and which other cars did you look out for?

its so much better than that silly nissan 370z.

i have a silly suggestion. drive around town with the top down in non rush hours when the dust, smog, smoke etc settles down. i think this will help in keeping the interior clean for a longer time.

finally as they say JOY IS BMW. i guess the one who owns it knows it congratulations.

Congrats amazing ride & color! Love the shark-head kind of design & retractable roof.
BTW what kind of fuel you use?

Need more pics.

I don't know about fuel efficient. Gives me 5-6kmpl in city driving and about 6-7 kmpl on the E-way.

I haven't driven the 370z but the 350z was a great experience to drive.

This is a nights/weekend car so doesn't see much action in peak hours. Interiors are a real pain to keep clean (white leather seats & white suede inserts).

Congratulations. Very good and unique choice. Eye cather on Indian road. Even on Germany's road it looks so cool, I can imagin how good it will be on Indian road.

I'm surprised this isn't one of the most hyperactive threads on the forum. I mean our first 2010 Z4!

SSP, gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. Do follow up on a detailed driving report. It should wet a few keyboards

Here's to you revving the nuts off that thing!

This is my favorite bimmer currently and its also probably the prettiest BMW ever made from the outside and inside. Seeing it in flesh is very very different from seeing it in pictures. Its actually tiny and I'm sure would be a load of fun to play around with .

I've been on Carter Road a couple of times but never at night. I dont live in that area.

Its actually very deceptive once youre sitting inside the car. The hood is HUGE. Overall its 2 feet shorter than the Accord but the hood makes me drive a little more cautiously in traffic.
