Just in case you didn't read this back in the day... A comparison test of the Z4 3.0si vs 350Z vs a Solstice.

0-60 in 5.1!

Well it is a little old but I'm glad you enjoy the acceleration in your car

0 to 60 in 5 flat is already past the limit of anything I'd reasonably need on a daily basis, but I still like having it.

I don't mean to bash anyone's Solstice, but That ranking was based on price considerations. Re the Z4 they said "if you can afford the best, we're envious".

Not that I condone magazine racing (especially regarding 7-year old cars that are both out of production - not sure why this got brought up anyway), but for the $20K price difference, I'd upgrade the wheels and tires on the Solstice and add a big brake kit for maybe $5K and erase the .8 sec diff in lap times between it and the Z4.

And if we're not concerned about price, then I'd go with a C5/C6 'Vette (back in the day) or a Porsche Boxter, or....

I meant to post this in the Z4 forum. Oops! Oh well, we're all BMW family.
