2012 BMW Z4
2012 BMW Z4
The Z4 roadster has become the first BMW to drop its in-line six for a four-cylinder turbo, spurred by a quest for better fuel economy. It's a big deal for BMW, a car company that has made its name with straight-six engines. The fact that the new 2.0-liter four is a good engine makes this change a bit easier to swallow. Compared with the old six, power is down a bit but torque is up; it makes the 28i a quick car, able to race to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds with the eight-speed automatic. The automatic is a no-charge option over the six-speed manual, which has fluid shift action through its long throws. This engine doesn't just make the numbers, it makes the right noises, with a sharp bark overlaid with the whoosh of its turbocharger. Still, we're glad a straight six, which powers the 35i and the 35is, remains available. The 35i gets a 300-hp turbo version and a choice of a stick shift or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The racier 35is is an M Roadster in all but name. Its turbo six bumps up the output to 335 hp and comes only with the dual-clutch seven-speed. However, many of the 35is goodies -- the Adaptive M suspension with driver-selectable modes, the eighteen-inch wheels, the aero body kit, and the sport seats -- are available on the two other models. Leather is standard on the six-cylinder cars but not the 28i. Unfortunately, the switch to a four-cylinder engine has not made the Z4 any more affordable. In fact, the base price has increased by more than $1000 (although there is a bit more standard equipment, with Bluetooth and a USB audio input now included).

BMW has really capitalized on its capital M moniker in recent years. Along with announcing the X5 M and X6 M SUVs, the brand has also added the M Performance sub-brand, and the Z4 roadster could be the next to get an M-spec sub-model.

Chevrolet and BMW have recently issued recalls. The Chevrolet Captiva Sport is being recalled for a parking brake cable issue while the power steering of a select number of BMW 1 Series Active E and Z4s may fail.

We can't get enough of BMW's gorgeous new Zagato Coupe. Designed to stretch the creativity of BMW and Italian design house Zagato, the Zagato Coupe might be one of the greatest products to come out of a German and Italian partnership. Over the weekend BMW released new videos showing off its new Zagato Coupe – one showing off the Zagato up-close and personal, and another featuring BMW and Zagato's head designers discussing the new car's design.

Italy’s Zagato is one of the legends of the coachbuilding industry, having penned some of the most expressive cars in Italian automotive history. BMW is one of the world’s most respected and recognized automakers. Together, they’ve collaborated to design the BMW Zagato Coupe, which was just revealed at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. From the looks of it, they’ve worked very well together.

I know BMWs are expensive because they are premium cars with premium equipment and lots of technology inside. But this car is far too expensive. How can a roadster that's no more fun than a Miata start at $49,525? That feels about $8,000 too expensive for a four-cylinder roadster in my book. Yes, the Z4 is far more refined than the Miata, but it doesn't bring as big of a smile to my face as the little Mazda does.
