Yeah 'car people' do tend to presume you know all the designation numbers..vinman wrote: ↑Thu Nov 24, 2022 5:48 pm So I really appreciate your feedback but humbly request less Greek ...sorry...I’m not a car guru by any means. I do the maintenance on my tundra and I’m just starting my journey on the z4. So most of the nomenclature of what you wrote doesn’t mean a whole lot to me in my search of a vehicle. Meaning I see there is a 4 cyl and a six and then diff generations; I’d like to know how I know I’m looking at “e89” & a “18,20,28” or a “n20” vs a n54,n55 etc.
I guess I’m not following how one deciphers what I’m specs I’m looking at when I first glance at a listing of a z4 search. Thanks...
The engine details are posted above by Silverstar
The Z4 has three 'generations'
1st gen was the E85 (soft top convertible) and E86 coupe 2003-2009
2nd gen was the E89 (hard top convertible) 2009-2016
3rd gen is the G29 (soft top convertible) 2018-present
As manual gearboxes (transmissions) are generally less popular in the States, I would expect them to command a premium over autos, but don't know!
