    There are for sure more examples of bmw’s which are worth more than when they were sold in the days... 2002 turbo, e30 m3, m1, many older classics etc etc.

    Cold means that's the level the coolant should be at when the engine is cold.

    It says cold on the coolant reservoir because that is the cold fill up line ( when the engine is cold ) when it’s hot and under pressure the level will be different

    I love this car. I worked at a bmw dealership in 2007 and was able to drive one. When you bought one from the dealer you had to sign a contract preventing you from reselling it during the first year of ownership. Because they all instantly went up in price

  • richgall63

    The Z8 Alpina isn’t “worse”...
    The 4.8 is from the X5 SUV (truck) and, though a bit smaller, actually has fabulous low-end torque, better suited for the auto. transmission, so therefore this is the better rendition of this heavy cruiser.

    wonder where Mercedes got inspiration from to create the GT models ?

    • C. Le
      C. Le 26 days ago

      fat cunt so that means Z8 copied the Porsche 911. Cause Z8s rear looks like the 911 rear. And also z8 copied the jag e type roadster as well in basically every aspect.

    • fat cunt
      fat cunt 26 days ago

      @C. Le ITS NOT! Compare them and comeback here dude, the rear is almost identical considering the age gap and the front and shape of the car in whole is almost the same man. if you dial out the fact that the design elements is still merc and bmw of their own. They are very similar in many ways....

    • C. Le
      C. Le 29 days ago

      Lol you’re crazy if you think Mercedes needs to look to bmw for design help. That’s a stretch thinking the AMG GT looks like the z8.

    The reason the soft top convertible doesn’t close all the way is so that there’s no chance of crushing someone’s fingers accidentally. It would hurt much less if someone pushed it in by hand and it didn’t latch, rather than the mechanism not knowing that a persons fingers were there and basically breaking them all

    Truly is the most gorgeous “retro” design of all time. Perfect in every way, and I actually prefer it to the original 507. Which is rare.
    Also feel compelled to note those are NOT toggle switches. Those are rocker switches.
