Somebody wrote me stating a local dealer is claiming the 2.8 coupe does/will not exist. This is false information. Pricing for all of the new Z-series vehicles, including the 2.8 coupe, is now listed online at Kelley's Blue Book webpage: Word is that the 2.8 versions will get the same dual VANOS motor as in the E46 328. MSRP is $36.2k, invoice is $31.8k. A well known independent BMW supplier, Steve Diamond, has a dealer network that can provide the 2.8 coupe for ~$2k over invoice, plus his administrative fee of ~$300. Try him at

FYI, I anticipate the 2.8 coupe with the dual VANOS motor to be a real stump-puller coming out of the corners and predict that it will outrun the E36 M3's on the SCCA Stock class autox circuit.
