I have a couple of BMW Ms, but they are all in storage. So does this Z4 fit the bill instead?

Powered by either a 2.5 or a 3 liter straight six, The E85 was the first generation of BMW Z4 roadsters and was produced from 2002 to 2008 exclusively in North Carolina.

I have never warmed up completely to Bimmers like I did to Mercs and Porsches, but that must be because of living in the US and hearing uncharitable comments about BMW owners, particularly immigrants of my own persuasion.


But still a soft corner persisted, thanks to the Z3 being a Bond car. And plus a professor who was kinda responsible for my coming to the US had a Z3 coupe that I rode shotgun on the 2nd day after I landed in Athens (Ohio)


This is a 1/36 scale model from Kinsmart that I shot almost 10 years ago.
