You said it yourself, nothing beats the Ultimate Driving Machine.

Z4 coupe is hot. + BMW gives dealers $2000 on Z4's until august 31st !

blondboinsd 08-01-2006 12:40 PM

I remember when I got 10k off on my Z4 *grin* its wonderful when cars don't sell lol, The New TT should be out soon, check it out, I'm not an Audi fan at all unless its the A6 or A8 *drools* but hey its a new car, check it out, the z4 as I have said before is so/so, rough riding and non-luxury, if your used to X5pampering like I was you might not be happy, have you tried the SLK350?

Try the Porsche Boxster (yes, I'm biased!)

As much as I love my new X3 and am a fan of BMWs in general, I really feel that the Boxster is a cut above the Z4 and the TT.

Here is my example in beautiful Carmon Red Metallic:

The boxster is nice, but I don't know if its worth the extra $$. You have to pay for everything under the sun. In that respect the Z4 is a steal...

Plus I think the 987 is a big let down in terms of interior. (Call me crazy but I've always thought the 986/996 interior is nicer then the new gen interiors)...

05Boxster 08-01-2006 07:44 PM

True, when optioned up comparitively, the Z comes in about 4K under the Boxster (mine listed at about $51K with lots of options).

However, you have the mid-mounted flat 6 in the Boxster, and there truly is no substitute for the kind of handling that a mid-mounted motor can offer.

I won't call you crazy, but I will say that 99% of the population like the new interiors of the 987/997 better than the old ones :) . Also, I have never grown to like the looks of the Z4, while the beauty of the Boxster is, arguably, timeless Porsche. But hey, thats why we have choices!

The Porsche is overpriced and the Z4 has more ponies too last time I checked, no auto dimming mirrors? No auto headlamps? No Power Seats? ba! I'd take the SLK350 any day!

Wow, I'm not used to hearing true sports cars compared based on autodimming mirrors, auto headlamps, and power seats. But, since you've mentioned it, the auto headlights were standard on my Porsche, and the dimming mirror and the power seats were options, just like on the Z4 :tsk:

The Z4 3.0si has 15 more horsepower than the Boxster, but the Z weighs 3,086 lbs while the Boxster weighs 2,855.

I'm not even going to touch the SLK350......talk about OVERPRICED.

blondboinsd 08-01-2006 10:53 PM

Are you kidding me? The SLK350 decently equipped will run in the mid-50's, faster and with a hard top, no comparison at all

Sorry blondboinsd, i gotta agree with 05boxster on this one.

The SLK is way overpriced. Your not getting higher quality, a nicer interior or a better handling car than a Z4. Hardtop? I'd rather have my trunk space, thank you very much !

I'm with blondboinsd on this. I just got the 350slk for my wife after checking out the Cayman and Z4. Really tough beating the hardtop. Also the slk has more trunk space than the boxter and z4.

the Cayman drives better than any of the above.

the SLK is underpowered and drives like a tank.

the Z4 is ok but does not compare to the luxo of Pcarness or SLKiness. However, although the SLK is a hardtop 'vert, it drives like crap and is underpowered.

for the money and the power and the finish, can't beat the Pcar.

i just looked into all this..... trust me on this one. (even looked at the SLK 320 AMG = SL 55AMG. for $65K still underperforms)...

There is no 320 AMG. I think you're talking about the pre 2006 which did have handling issues. There is the SLK55 AMG which is crazy fast.

The slk350 does 272hp with the new 7speed auto and is faster than the Z4. Underpowered, I don't think so.
I'm not saying the SLK is better than the Pcar or Z4. I choose it mainly because of the hardtop making it an all year car for the wife. Oh, and the airscarf is fantastic.:thumbup:

blondboinsd 08-02-2006 01:47 PM

The SLK is faster then both and very refined, I love em, in fact I think it just may be my next car!

I would be shocked if the slk had more trunk space than the Boxster. The Boxster actually has *TWO* trunks because of the motor being mid- mounted. The front trunk is a deep well and the rear is shallow but wide. You'd be surprised at the amount of usable space.....

I was talking about trunk space with the top down...
