I am disappointed that the Z2 will only be available in a Roadster.
Naturally I prefer the RWD driving dynamic that I have come to know and appreciate from BMW but as I mentioned before I will wait and see what the FWD driving dynamic is like and how similar or different it is from MINI before I pass judgment. I understand the BMW is a business and of course businesses make money and want to be profitable. One way to do that is to share technology between brands and or car lines. However I think that BMW Group has to be very cautious and careful in how the differentiate the brands between MINI and the new FWD BMW's.
