Changed my vote guys. Guess its just between the Challenger and Z now...
I'm in the same boat as you narrowed it down to the two. But I've really had my heart set on the new Z ever since it was revealed I just keeping coming back to take another look. I guess what it really is coming down to for me is the price, here's hoping rumors about pricing are true.

I work for a multinational company selling and servicing industrial equipment engineered and manufactured in Japan and also equipment engineered and manufactured in Germany. From my experience both with our equipment and our competitor's equipment, I'll choose Japanese over German made any day of the week.

Gimme a Z!

I used to own a '98 BMW 540iA (4.4L V8). It was a painful and sweet experience at the same time.
Sweet because it put a smile on my face everytime I drove it.
Painful because it had so many issues after 4-5 yrs. I got to know all the service advisors by their first names.
Why? Mechanically, that car was very solid. Extensive use of plastics under the hood and all the sensors did not last very long.
Very disappointed in *German Engineering*.
It was a $52K car in 1998 dollars...

Rumors had it that, BMW V8 couldn't meet the US emission standard at that time.
Their quick solution was to raise the operation temp by 10 degree.
Good idea. All plastic parts failed prematurely.
From the records, the cooling system (mostly plastics) got me stranded three times.

For the same reason, I won't even consider a Supra even if I can live with that strange (to me personally) exterior.

For a pain-free-BMW experience, either lease it, or even better - own it virtually! I drive them all in Forza Horizon 4 lol...

I joined a couple MkV Supra forums for a project I'm working on, and I've seen a notable amount of posts regarding the performance and value of the Z. I'm pumped to put the new Z through development and smack some Supras

Yea, it is def a hit-miss with german cars. Agreed best option is def to lease it, I...did not lease mine..lol. So fingers crossed I don't run into any major issues with mine before I part out.

Supra will def be faster (straight line) due to the 8speed, unless it is confirmed that the ZF 9Speed from the pathfinder is 100% making it into the Z. Many MKV buyers bought their cars since they wanted a "supra" and there are no other high power, 2 door Japanese cars left with the "status" of the Supra.
