Congratulations Tushar Babu, Nayi Beetle, Nayi Bimmer, Badiya hai.

I agree with everyone here. The Bimmer looks best in this shade of blue. Though you will have to find another garage for your bug. Just see how terrified she is in front of the monster ( She seems to have cuddled close to the wall in terror)

Congratulations once again and do drive safe.

Perhaps you could have driven it instead of transporting... huh?

If the roads were that good, i'd have surely driven it. I took SSP's advise to transport it rather.

Default Jaw Dropping!

I stopped breathing while taking in Lucifer's fabulous photos!

Uh, with your taste in cars, a Fiat 500 is white would complete the car family

Default Interior and Exterior details

@Cayman: Had the 500 come in automatic or the abarth version, i'd considered it. After beetle, i cant think of another two door hatch in my garage.

I've covered almost every angle of the Z4 today.

What you'll like:
  • Classic roadster Cab-back profile, driving position
  • Long bonnet and sharp lines accentuates its length and aggression yet classy.
  • Front grill looks very similar to CS concept
  • Superb performance, refinement from its straight 6, Twin turbo gives Z4 a wide range . Extreme low-end torque in Sport mode.
  • 7 speed is creamy smooth & seamless.
  • Well balanced yet tail happy when driven hard.
  • effortless 0-100 performance.
  • Interior looks stunning with amber ambient light
  • Weighted steering in sport-mode. Superb handling
  • Exhaust note at 6000rpm is to die for & Down-shift blip is a symphony
  • Great sound insulation
I wish it had that "//M" button on the steering as the cherry.

Fantastic snaps. Great lens work. I'm all wet after seeing the pics. Proper wallpaper material. The blue shade on the Z4 looks terrific. You got a really hot ride mate. Envy You.

Some pics with the top down please.

Stunning! Smashing! Stupendous! I'm really running out of words here!

For once, I'd say that pictures have done justice to your Z4!

We'd really like some pictures with the top-down!

crisis!

Few more pics to show a poetic mayhem of curves and lines. Arguably, from Z4's best possible angle.

Oh Lucifier you!

The Z4 is an absolute symphony in metal! What a stunning car! Eons ahead of the old Z4 and the laughable Z3. And that exhaust note coupled with the sound of that lovely in-line 6-pack lump, it's just one of the best roadsters around!

Fabulous photographs there!

Awesome-ness !!

I'm sure the best is yet to come when the Z4 gets topless. I'm so waiting for the topless pics.

@ Its light years ahead of the feminine Z3 , relatively the e89 feels more softened than the first gen Z4, latter had more character.
Somehow IMO, E89 has more resemblance to BMW's classic roadster than the earlier gen.
