    Doug the styling(visually is what seems to me bump the price of this car in recent years.It is also rare too.That bumps up the price.The handling,especially in corners isn't on par with my 2011 MX5 GT.Yet overall it looks better.I especially like the chrome accents not on the Mazda.So I added all of them to my car.Is it faster than mine.Yes but is it as fun to drive?No!About the car.Would I pay 200 grand for it?No!Don't like the removable hard top.For the money they could have added a collapsible hard top & a retractable soft top as well.Nice car though,but overpriced & generally designed for the over 50s crowd with a large deep pocket to buy it.That said awesome review.P.S. I enjoyed the quirks you mentioned about the car too.Personally I prefer the Z4 BMW could you maybe do a review on it.Underrated awesome car,at a much more modest price?????

    A really beautiful car which was otherwise a bit rubbish vs best opposition at the time. Annoying that they haven't depreciated to allow cheapskates like me to get in. And this review will no doubt see to it that 200k will be the new base price for even a wrecked one :(

    Another joke? I hope Doug isn't serious. No BMW ever is worth $200k. This ridiculous looking thing is a glorified Miata at best. Even when I switch my eyeballs into the other sockets and wear trick glasses, the hapless paperweight from Germany still looks ugly. You can't find a view where it looks decent. Top that off with the horrendous maintenance costs of owning any German car and you find yourself searching for the Vaseline and wondering WHY the hell you fell for the hype. Sorry Doug, German cars just don't have the pizazz required to venture into THAT kind of price range. Look again and imagine it without the sucker logo plastered all over the place. Imagine it says Renault or Volvo and then give us an honest review. Some cars are indeed worth $200k. This isn't one of them.

    Nobody will listen to me but I will explain why the interface to this car is so non-intuitive.
    The purpose of making a unique interface is to keep the users continue buying a system with the same interface because they will not immediately understand other interfaces, even if they are superior and more intuitive.
    BMW is pulling an Apple with this. This is a move to keep you hooked into their "ecosystem" - meaning prison - there is no ecosystem this has nothing to do with biology.
    Dumb people SHOULD be stripped of their money after all. Stupid people who have made their money by scamming other stupid people are fair game. BMW is doing nothing wrong.

    ??? The cold on the coolant reservoir is supposed to be the level indicator for the coolant when the engine is cold. That’s strange because I’d think he would know that because a lot of other cars have that.

    I've never understood people who drop the convertible in the winter, my best friend is one of these people... When he had a convertible, if it was sunny, it did not matter how cold it was outside. We nicknamed his car the hot tub, because it was freezing outside, but warm inside the bucket of the car. Still not a fan of winter convertible driving, still question drivers I see doing this.

    The V8 is tuned mildly instead of neck snapping as it could be, but 400 HP and 0-60 MPH in 4.5 sec is no slouch. Also the Compression Ration of the engine is reasonably high at 11:1, which means that if you give it stick, its going to move. Love the car, even though it's quite thirsty. Is it worth $200K? Certainly not even though its a nice car.

    Anyone who says the Z8 is a beautiful looking car is fucking ugly and has zero taste.
    The Z8 is consistently rated as the worst sports car to drive. It has reliability issues and BMW had to cancel its production due to its unpopularity and lack of engineering in just 3 years of its release.
    I'm surprised nobody sued BMW for making this overpriced ugly piece of shit.

    Why are you always equivocating with numbers? Instead of saying “just over $200,000,” just say “$200,00.” Drop the “just over,” “about,” “approximately,” “over,” “less than,” etc.

No power ANYTHING, AM/FM radio which was never turned while I owned it. Oh, no air conditioning either but it cost $5,000 new.
