The E86 Z4 M Coupe is sold in the US. I agree with Jeff, you really
need to get rid of that wing. It really makes the car look like a
"ricer" and ruins the lines of the car.

The E93 335i convertible is a nice looking car. Just make sure it has
I have to go with the 330 for that reason. Having said that, can one buy a
factory-equipped turbo and NOT have an intercooler? It seems to me that an
intercooler would be a required part of the system if there was any hope of
the sport package, did not have an intercooler. Its crazy as the E92s
are known to run hot! Further, even some of the ones with the sport
package may not have it too. Unbelieveable. Therefore, if someone was
looking for a used one, that is one thing that should be check. If the
car doesn't have one, I hear Dinan makes an excellent aftermarket one.
Costly, but excellent.
That surprises me! With all of the trouble early adopters of turbochargers had before they figured out how to connect a coler, I'm surprised that BMW would even offer a turbo without a cooler.
Maybe I'm mixing my apples and oranges here ...
In any case, I think that I'd be looking at the 330 anyway. It has all of the power that I could ever need, and all of the style in terms of curb appeal that the 335 has.
