A hotter version of the Z4 Marketing40i won't arrive. BMW sees the Sdrive40i (the name it should have had) as the top model for the Z4, also because they made a contract with Toyota that they aren't allowed to make a Z4 M. Toyota asked for this and therefore the Supra is more aimed at sportiness and the Z4 more at Gran Touring. You feel that when you drive both.

The S58 as an engine has amazed me. I was in the passenger seat of the new X4 M running up the hill at Goodwood FoS and I was amazed about the top end power of the X4 M. A power delivery I have not easily felt before from a M car.

The sound track of the engine is of course non existent and horrible because of the OPFs. We have to wait and see how it sounds when tuners remove the OPFs and cats later this year when they receive the first X3M's and X4M's.
