Decisions Decisions 3.0 or 4.0

I didn't think the extra performance and better sound was worth the extra cost along with the poorer fuel economy.
Enjoy! I don’t thing there is a wrong choice. I have heard the 3.0 is a great balance.

where is this fabled 4.0 Z4 and how do i get hold of one? I thought the largest displacement engine in a Z4 was a 3.0... :wink: :poke:

Unless you're talking about the Z4 GT3 race car, which is technically a 4.4?

though again, i get that if you bought a sDrive30i, you might not want to admit to people it was only a 2.0, 4cyl... :evil: :evil: :evil:

I assumed they were talking about choosing between the G29 sDrive30i and the G29 M40i... maybe not! In fact they might be talking about an M60 swapped G29. But which M60 to go for, the 3.0L or 4.0L. :rofl:

People have been doing this for a while now especially on here with the E89. The 23i gets called a 2.3 and the 35i and 35is get called 3.5i and 3.5is.

I had the 2.0 G29 and traded for the M40i. at the end of the day it was about enjoyment and the M40i did it for me, managed to find one with just over 1,000 miles on at a huge discount which was very much part of the reason for change. End of the day its horses for courses.
