    LAAS 2018 - The 2019 G29 Z4 M40i looks awkard in person

    The new Z4 proved controversial. It seems most comments question the design and it did not immediately generate fans like the previous E89 design. The hardware underpinning the skin is quite nice with the 382 horsepower B58 3.0 I6 providing power.

    The car should be a hit with a return to a fabric soft top providing for less weight. We are back to a claimed 50/50 weight distribution:

    The lack of a manual is a major strike against it but so are the vertical headlights which look cheap and as if they belong on something out of Asia.

    The front looks more like this :

    When it should look more like this:

    Overall, it just doesn't look like a BMW. At least not from the front.

    Do not hold your breath for an M version.

    Grilles too big, headlights don't fit BMW's look at all.

    Rear, sure - but that's easy and honestly less distinctive. BMW's current rear ends could easily pass for an Infiniti rear these days.

    I was going to make fun of the fact it look like a cross between a Fiat Spider and a Benz SLK ... then realized that's probably exactly the market BMW is going after.

    You seriously nailed it. That's exactly the design.

    The E89 is better looking IMO and looks like a BMW should.
