Im sure when they done this with the i8 they were special edition limited run cars.
Maybe it will be something similar with special paint colours for a limited number of cars.

Just profile pushing for the New shape Zed. Plus they will then charge a premium for several neat extras, that become standard features a few month's later. No doubt there's folk out there with enough to splash who will snap them them up. :roll:

BMW Z4 First Edition?

Post by Z4 Beemer » Thu Aug 23, 2018 11:14 pm

Only 45 First Edition cars coming to the UK... from BMW UK website...
Over 80 years since the very first BMW roadster went on sale, the new BMW Z4 M40i First Edition has taken open-top driving pleasure to new heights.

Based on the BMW Concept Z4 presented at Concours d'Elegance 2017 in Pebble Beach, this exclusive model combines the sporting character of a roadster with the agility, precision and dynamic handling typical of BMW M Performance models. And what's more, it's limited to just 444 units worldwide, 45 of which will be coming to the UK.

More likely they'll be heavily under-discounted :wink:

I just don't like the idea of the First Edition, even tho they're marketing it as a limited number of cars. Plan to wait and see what discounts are available at launch. From memory I got £2k off the E89 sDrive 23i, which I ordered February 2009 after the UK specs were finalised and collected it May 2009.

Did anyone on here order one of these? I signed up on the interest register but never heard anything, so just went with the standard M40i and a couple of options

I noticed today the pricing for this model is £54,380 so it's about £5k extra. Still doesn't seem to be officially listed in many places though so I'm wondering where the UK allocation is actually ending up :?
