Special edition trims are nothing new for BMW, but it’s still worth noting considering just how extensive the brand is, especially here in America.

With the 2012 BMW Z4, BMW is looking into raising the awareness and interest for their sports roadster. The company has decided to do away with their previous packages - the Exclusive Ivory White Leather Package being one of them - in lieu of introducing an all-new aesthetic package called the Exclusive Canyon Brown Package.

Available for the standard and the M Sport versions, the Exclusive Canyon Brown Package will feature plenty of new upgrades, including sport seats that come with an exclusive extended Merino leather upholstery with contrasting stitching. Meanwhile, the Z4’s upper dashboard is dressed in a Canyon Brown Oregon leather with contrasting stitching. The front lateral, center armrests, and the passenger-side dashboard come in black Nappa leather while the door handles come in black nappa leather and Fineline Antracite wood trim.

For the Exclusive Canyon Brown M Sport Package, BMW is including more options for the Z4, including an adaptive M suspension, a set of Canyon Brown Extended Merino leather sport seats, an M sports steering wheel with paddle shifters, a new aerodynamic kit, an anthracite headliner, increased top speed limiter, and a set of 18" performance tire upgrades.

As with all packages coming out of BMW, the new Exclusive Canyon Brown programs doesn’t come cheap. For the sDrive35i model, the package retails for $5,050. For the four-cylinder sDrive28i, it’ll cost you $5,350.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

It really didn’t have lots of aerodynamic changes, but it still looks great on that! Moreover, I noticed that it looks very elegant on its car lines and body paint. However, I think they should enhance the output of it.

The metallic paint that they used on this car is really suited for it and emphasize the beauty and the snobbish look of it, but I must say that it is only looked like Roadster.

240 horsepower is not so remarkable for me. Maybe if it is on an output of 480 above, I can say that it is really odd on this Z4 convertible. Anyway, I noticed that its exterior detailing is very admiring on it.

For a convertible car like this, I must say that its engine and horsepower are very remarkable on it, and I noticed that it also had a striking exterior appearance.

I must say that it really looks so awesome! I love the fact that it is a four seater convertible car.

I love how they perfectly put the lines on this car and the available color that it had is really suited for it. It is quite impressive for me, and an irresistible car.

The roadster version of the car looks so gorgeous and admiring. They have offered an exterior, and interior update on the vehicle. However, too bad that they have forgotten about the engine upgrade.

I’m really disappointed on limited editions for there’s nothing special about it! Mostly, the things that offered here were the exterior and aerodynamic update. However, the M package in the vehicle really stands out. The package here seems cheaper.
