How Would You Build Your New BMW Z4 (Aka Bavaria’s… Supra Roadster)?


Anyone looking to purchase the all-new BMW Z4 can now spec out their dream ride thanks to the sports car’s official online configurator. It’s also a fun way to spend a few minutes for anyone who can only dream of buying one.

The following configurator comes from the BMW USA website and, interestingly, only offers the option of customizing the entry-level Z4 sDrive30i. This, despite the fact that U.S. buyers can also opt for the more powerful, six-cylinder Z4 M40i.

Two variants of the Z4 sDrive30i are on offer. The first, dubbed Sport Line, starts at $49,700 and has a focus on understated looks. By comparison, the M Sport is much more aggressive and starts at $52,650. To this writer’s eyes, at least, it is by far the most attractive of the two.

In total, there are eight colors available for the 2019 Z4, but only five of these can be specified in the M Sport trim. Our personal favorites are Misano Blue Metallic and San Francisco Red, and buyers can also select between the Standard Black and the Moonlight Black soft top, both of which look identical, at least in the configurator.

When it comes to wheels, there are six different designs for the Z4 sDrive30i M Sport. There are also six interior configurations to choose from, five of which come standard with ambient lighting. High Gloss Black trim and aluminum interior trim is also available.

In terms of optional packages, the M Sport can be upgraded with the Convenience Package for $1450, the $500 Driving Assistance Package, BMW’s $1600 Premium Package, the $2500 Executive Package, and, last but not least, the $2450 Track Handling Package, which includes an M Sport Differential and M Sport Brakes.

Among the final options available are remote engine start, a heated steering wheel, wireless charging with WiFi hotspot, extended trim, heated front seats and active cruise control.

After playing around with the configurator we created our ideal Z4 sDrive30i M Sport, which came out at $58,140. Feel free to share how you would spec the Z4 in the comments below.

    I would configure this car by going to the Toyota website and buying a Supra, as it is a better styled and far better looking car overall and will stand out in a crowd unlike this “just another BMW” styled boring car.

    Here is the thing. I don’t like it. I hate it, so if I have the money I will have to buy something else, and if they gave it to me for free, I’ll sell it and buy something else with the money. 😂

      Would do the same thing.. I’d be too embarrassed..

    Even though I don’t have much interest in either the BMW, this design is so much smarter than the Supra. It looks purposeful, while the Supra is a bit too… um, “flamboyant” for my liking.

    No green.

    Buy a Supra instead and change the badges .. no one would know the difference.. save yourself $8k and tune the Supra.

    • Except that the Supra is a hard top coupe. Me? I want the folding roof cabrio one. A proper M version like the E85 M Roadster would be nice.

  • GobbleUp

    Such a poor design. Already looks tired.

    I wouldn’t bother. BMW lost their way a long time ago.

    As the new Z4 looks like a fiat. I would save loads of money and get one of them instead.
    Also still no Android car play.
    Bmw need to wake the f up.
