Introducing the BMW Z4 to Dili

These photos thanks to a reader.
This is a BMW Z4 convertible roadster. Running at approximately $50,000 to $70,000.
This is BMW z4 (Licenzia 19 909) in Pantai Kelapa, Dili on 9 March 2009
On 10 March 2009 Timor-Leste took a great leap forward it now has sports cars. In a country where most people live on a dollar a day these are just what is needed.
The owner does not appear in need of a poverty alleviation programme.
According to one car mag, "The BMW Z4, which replaced the Z3, has rocked the sports car world with its dramatic 'flame surfaced' styling and smooth power. Nicknamed the 'land shark' for its sleek, aggressive appearance, the rear-wheel drive Z4 is as exciting to drive as it is to look at."
The owner is a Level 6 civil servant in the Department of Transport (initials BT). Responsibile for issuing all manner of licenses, import waivers, fees etc etc. As a level 6 civil servant he earned approximately $4,000-$5,000 per year before the recently proposed salary increases for all public servants.
BMW Z4 - $50,000 to $70,000 price tag.
Owner - $5,000/annum income.
Who is the sleek agressive shark?
