Z4 and speed bumps???

hi there, i plan on getting a z4 as a summer car but i'm worried that it will scrape on these speed bumps. i've always driven the x5 so i never had to worry about speed bumps/pot holes and etc

should i be worried? thanks.

No idea on that specific car, but our '02 VetteVert, very low with air dam and lower intake spoiler only a few inches off the ground, gets over most.

The key is to slow way down, angle in toward the bump, one front wheel at a time, and ease up and over. It works most of the time. YMMV...

Better yet, take one for a test drive, preferably with the idiot sales guy in the shotgun seat, and hammer a few speed bumps...jk. Try maneuvering over some...
