You can't really compare two cars with different engines (or different tunes in this case). A more fair price comparison would be against the inevitable 420i.

In the states, the Z4 s28i (which is the lowest model we get) starts at $48,950. The 328i starts at $37,300 and the 428i starts at $40,500. So here, a Z4 is quite a bit more expensive than a 3er or a 4er.

Also, I just had a brilliant idea. Why doesn't BMW make a sedan, with the styling and proportions of a roadster?
