The former Z4 2.5i has been discontinued, while a higher-performance 3.0Si joins the 3.0i to complete the lineup. Both are powered by a new 3L I-6 engine that develops 215 hp in the base model and 255 hp in the “Si” variant. In both models the engine is mated to a new 6-speed manual gearbox. A new 6-speed automatic transmission is optional, replacing the former 5-speed unit. In addition, the exterior appearance has been updated with a restyled front bumper with larger air intake, new headlamps and fog lamps, a redesigned rear bumper and revised taillamps. Both models have 17-in. wheels and tires and the stability control has been updated with brake-fade compensation, brake standby, brake drying modulated ABS function and, on manual-transmission cars, start-off assist. On models with an automatic transmission, manual gear selection is now controlled by paddles on the steering wheel.
