This car is a pleasure to drive, even around town. I have the Steptronic automatic version as my wife doesn't drive a manual transmission. Overall gas mileage is about 24 mpg with a couple of long, mostly interstate driving, trips coming in over 30 mpg. We have taken this car down the Blue Ridge parkway from end to end and around Cape Breton Island, top down. Pure pleasure!
Performance, superb handling and the "wow! what's that???" reaction from people when they see it.
An M (motorsport) version would be appreciated. The M-roadster based on the Z3 was a very good machine and the Z4 M-variant has the potential to be (possibly much) better
