    Quoted so people read it again. The Z4 does not weigh 1610kg without a driver.

    The M340i debuts in LA at the end of this month with Euro version said to have 368-374hp while us versions will have 382hp. Why does the Euro Z4 only have 340hp? Why develop the integrated exhaust manifold to make 340hp when the traditional head makes more power while also meeting emissions standards when adding a 'simple' filter?

    Seems like “realoem.com” only has the engine parts and diagrams of the Toyota Supra. What about for the Z4?

    I wonder how will double-VANOS contribute to the reliability of the car, especially with the Supra.:rolleyes:
