    Yum, yum, tasty.

    Flame surfacing gone, all the proportions are right, all we have to worry about is what the silly Euro pedestrian bumper-car rules do to the nose shape and height.

    It won't be light, certainly no S2000, but a whole lot prettier than the little Benz.

    Or you can buy a Mazda Miata (MX5) right now, with a power retractable hard top, folds up in 12 seconds. The car is plenty fast enough over the road too. I just bought one, and I'm very pleased.

    Any news on a 6 series hard top?

    And while you're at it, forget about the 3-Series and go get a Mazda 6 right? As good as the MX5 is (and it's plenty good), I doubt the majority of people considering a Z4 would be caught dead in a Mazda showroom...unless one pops up in The Jones's driveway.

    While still early days, the pictures floating around on the net suggest the 2010 Z4 is going to lose the gutsy sexy styling of the present Z4 Batman coupe, and be replaced by something that is very ... umm ... well ... American ... the kind of thing you would expect to see Bobby Ewing driving into the ranch ... i.e. pseudo and ersatz ... much like the appearance of the current 6-series and pretty much every attempt Mercedes make at doing a coupe. Glitz shmitz. Not very euro - even if production is moving back to Germany.
