Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

The prices for the 2009 Z4 sDRive30i and Z4 sDrive35i has been announced by BMW. The pricing for the new models are around $9,000 above the price of the previous model at $46,575 and $52,475 respectively.

Although the prices are steep buyers will be getting more for their money. Besides its modified styling and retractable hard top, the base car receives a more potent 255hp, 3.0-liter I-6 that was a standard engine on the sportier Z4 3.0si. The top engine for 2009 in terms of performance is the twin-turbo sDrive35i, which produces 306hp and torque of 300lb-ft.

The new convertible will come with a full set of options, too. These options include a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission ($1,525) and will be solely offered for the sDrive35i; metallic paint ($550), navigation system ($2,100) and BMW assist for additional safety ($750).

Customers can also personalize their Z4 with a sport pack that includes sport seats, adjustable M suspension, 18 inch wheels, and an increased speed limiter (all for $2,300).

For a cold weather package ($1,000) which includes heated steering wheel and front seats. The premium sound package comes with a premium hi-fi stereo, 6 DVD changer, and iPod integration (all for $2,000). Also offered is a premium package with auto dimming mirrors, power seats, surround lighting and a universal garage door opener.

BMW will commence sales of its latest roadster offering -- the all-new 2009 BMW Z4 -- in the United Kingdom. Featuring a two-piece, electro-hydraulically operated Retractable Hard-Top roof that can be deployed and closed in just 20 seconds – the 2009 BMW Z4 is powered by any of the available three six-cylinder engines.

The range-topping BMW Z4 sDrive35i is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged engine that could provide up to 306hp of output at 5,800rpm and up to 400Nm of torque from just 1,300rpm.

With this amount of power available, this engine – with high-precision direct injection technology – could make the BMW Z4 sDrive35i accelerate from zero to 62mph in 5.2 seconds (5.1 seconds when the engine is mated to Double Clutch Transmission or DCT) and reach an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. Moreover, BMW Z4 sDrive35i consumes 30.1mpg (31.4mpg with DCT) combined and emits 219g/km (210g/km with DCT) of carbon dioxide.

On the other hand, the new 2009 BMW Z4 is fitted with the Adaptive M Suspension, which features electronically controlled dampers – with three different configurations – that could lower the roadster's ride height by up to 10mm. Interestingly, the Sport+ setting of the 2009 BMW Z4 is comparable to the standard ride comfort level of its predecessor.

Moreover, the new 2009 BMW Z4 comes standard with the Drive Dynamic Control function that enables the driver to change– according to model specification -- its throttle and steering response and level of ride comfort. Drive Dynamic Control also allows the driver to change the Dynamic Stability Control response and -- on automatic or DCT models -- gear change times.
