Looks like I'll be keeping my Z4M Coupe for a while! Canadian prices just announced for the M40i (not the four banger thank you) at $76100!!! plus the ridiculous $ 15-1800 "destination charge", tire tax, aircond tax, and our mighty 13% Hst which should equal app $88000 all in ! NO THANK YOU!

Lol, I love it.. This cruddy looking POS is going to drive the e86 prices skywards. I quite like the rear, but the front is bloody hideous.
Nice vid though, thanks for posting.

Well, I have to pop into my dealer on Monday to have an airbag recall done on my X5 so if they have a new Z4 I'll get some pics for youse guys.

Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder - or not - but regarding performance, Car and Driver gave the new Z4 a very positive review recently: https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews...r-performance/ .

With respect to Canadian pricing, the 2006 Z43.0si was priced at around $68,000 plus tax as I recall. So with inflation over 13 years, it may be at least reasonably consistent. I couldn't find the old 2006 Globe review with that but at least this one has good pictures : https://www.theglobeandmail.com/glob...article792137/

But don't get me started on the outrageously high Canadian taxes.

I really don't think it's that bad. A small premium over the 440i (albeit with xDrive, but obviously not as low-volume). Also smack in the middle between the Boxster and Boxster S (without options) and in line with the SLC43. And the Z4s30i being at $62,500 lines up against the SLC300 and undercuts the Porsche. In the day where a Miata tops out at $40k CAD, it seems in-line for BMW's roadster.

What I do think is interesting is that Toyota priced the Supra at $65k. Even if it's 4-cyl I'd take the BMW over that, and for around ~$10k more (not much considering most of these will be leased) you get MUCH nicer styling, more power, likely more luxurious amenities, and a convertible top.

Not that I agree, but that's a pretty common take on the E86 - beautiful back-end but less-than-stellar front end. I think I've heard that about the E36/7/8 too - though the reverse. I'd take all three over the hideous looking Supra. But the reality is I'm not the target market for the new cars so I'll keep my E86 forever lol.

Trying to compare apples to similar, I'd take it over an SLC43 or 718 Boxster S, but for that kind of coin I'd get a used Evora S with a 6MT.
Lotus is on my bucket list, and I'm feeling shovel-ready.
