G29 BMW Z4 sDrive30i launched in Malaysia – RM480k

Following its first appearance here in March during the launch of the G20 3 Series, and then subsequently as a showcase display at Sepang during the BMW M Track Day in June, the G29 BMW Z4 has now officially gone on sale in Malaysia. As reported previously, BMW Malaysia is only bringing in a sole engine variant of the third-generation drop-top, and this is the sDrive30i in M Sport trim.

Let’s get to the pricing first – the Z4 sDrive30i M Sport goes for RM479,800, on-the-road without insurance (with five years Unlimited Mileage Warranty, Free Scheduled Service Programme and BMW Tyre Warranty Programme), and that’s RM23,000 more than the last estimated pricing provided for the car, which was during the Sepang preview.

The sDrive30i variant is equipped with a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder delivering 255 hp (258 PS) and 400 Nm from 1,550 to 4,400 rpm, and this is paired with an eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission. Performance figures include a 0-100 km/h time of 5.4 seconds and a 250 km/h top speed.

Standard kit includes a M Sport Suspension and Variable Sport Steering, along with wireless phone charging and Intelligent Parking Assistant with a Reversing Assistant feature. There’s also Connected Package Professional, which will allow owners to add on more features from the ConnectedDrive store.

The Z4 also comes with a BMW Digital Key, which enables the driver to lock/unlock and operate the vehicle with the use of select Android smartphones via Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. Via the BMW Connected App, the Digital Key can be shared with up to five people.

A choice of five exterior colours is available for the car, and these are San Francisco Red, Misano Blue, Black Sapphire, Glacier Silver and Alpine White. These can be matched with a pick from three interior colour options – black décor with black stitching, Magma Red with black stitching or Cognac with black stitching, as seen in the photo set of the car here from the Sepang showcase.

The company says that through a Balloon Financing Plan from BMW Group Financial Services Malaysia, monthly installment plans for the Z4 sDrive30i M Sport start from RM5,478.00 (based on estimates of an 80% loan, on a five-year tenure).

  • If the Z4 is selling for 480k, then there is a big chance the Supra will be near 600k for top spec.

    It has its charms. Price is tad bit high, butBut Carwow compared the Z4 and Supra (both with the same inline 6 engine and ZF gearbox), and the winner won 2 out of 3 tests, rather easily. The 3rd test was very close. Won’t spoil the results. Go watch it.

      Expensive it may be, it’s still a tad cheaper than the Cayman here.

  • Insane pricing from BMW Malaysia here.
    In Europe a Z4 costs around 10% more than a 3 series with the same engine, here in Malaysia they are charging nearly 50% more then a 330i – can’t blame the import duties for that level of difference, just greed from BMWM

  • the only reason all the cars are freaking expensive is because the government taxes imported care a lot.. whereas in us it is way cheaper because tax lesser for the cars .. the cars are expensive because of the goverment taxes that are really high
