Z-4 vs 550

The Germans just put out a new car the Z-4. To me, it looks to be chopped up. The only thing, which is design nicely, is the rear end. Opps, they copied the rear end from my 550. A friend and I stopped by the local BMW dealer. I parked my beast next to the line of Z-4s. We looked at the rear ends and compared. The BMW salespeople came over. All agreed the Germans cannot design and must copy the Italian designers. (Ha-ha)

12 cylinders or walk

You don't see the similarities? The trunk in the middle rises just like the 550 and that brake light in the middle where it rises screams 550. It only has one lamp unit but if you split it and make the part closest to the inside a round light you would have a 550 rear only smaller.

I agree that the rear end is 550like. If you look at the rear arch starting from the top of the tyre then move your eyes up it looks like the F355s rear arch. What's with the curves then the horrible flat line running from the door to the front arch?? - Looks like 4 or 5 people had an attempt at designing seperate parts of the car and then stuck them all together. Not my cup of tea at all. :-?
