Yeah, the updated XK-E is nice, though I'm a bit of an oddity in that regard; I would much rather have a modernized version of the much-maligned successor to the XK-E, the XJ-S. I just think they're a really handsome car, especially the coupé. (And there was another Top Gear segment in which James May reviewed an XJ-S that had been similarly revamped by an engineering company - had actual working electrics fitted and so forth.)
As for the Z4, well, again, I'm more of a Jag man, I'd take an XKR over that. Very similar looks to the Aston Martin DB9, for about half the money.
