Reading thru some messages I came up with another perspective that may not have been looks over yet. Let's put the cost aside for now because we can all (even you Mr. Gates) agree that $130,000 for an automobile is expensive - a luxury to say the least. Now, let's consider the other options in this ballpark. The Mercedes-Benz SL series is in the $85-130k range (SL500-600). The Ferrari 360 Modena goes for around $145k if I recall.<br>In my humble opinion, after looking at this from a laid back, unbiased point of view (hell I'm not gonna have any of these any time soon so what's it matter)... I think that the Z8 is an exotic car. The formal definition may differ from what the Z8 entails but it's not a normal production car at all. $128k is overpriced? Too bad. You don't like it's looks? That's fine. You have not and will not ever see one in person? Wouldn't surprise me at all...<br>I personally can't wait to see what happens - it's something special when even Bruce can't forecast what's in the future!<p>Bored and long-winded 'cause my car's outta commission,<br>Steve<br>'87 325iS

<i>:I personally can't wait to see what happens - it's something special when even Bruce can't forecast what's in the future!</i><p>My crystal ball is growing cloudy if you knwo what I mean. But there is a chance it might become clear again, will have to wait and see.
