I (well, Louise) will be taking the Z4 up but as we live in Harrogate will probably go straight there. I'm not quite sure which section to park in though as I want to keep both cars together and the Germans might not take kindly to a fat Italian in their midst and, well, I don't think there is much ...

I'm beginning to get the idea that the Z4s are far less supported than the Z3s on this forum :D

Good post Gookah... I was expecting a lot worse :) I pick our manual 2004 2.5 SE tomorrow and I had to compromise on engine size (I wanted the 3.0) and mileage (I wanted 40k I have 70k). However, it is in one of my favourite colour combos, Sterling Grey with red leather and it has what I would not b...

Cheers Stu... funnily, those are one of my favourite wheel styles :)

Not wanting to spend a fortune on another exhaust, I'm STILL waiting for the TR's exhaust to arrive from Italy!

Can you get nice tail pipe tips just to make them look presentable? If so, whois the best for such things?

Well... I'll try the Pistonheads way and see if that works... here goes!

Yay! It worked :)

I will do some nicer shots as this is just taken with the iPhone.

Now... about these tail pipes? :D

I would but you can only upload 256kb on here and I don't know how to re-size the image.

New Z4 - what nice bits to buy?

I have just bought a lovely Sterling Grey over red leather 2.5 SE and am wondering if there are any obvious aesthetic upgrades.

The tail pipes are looking their age so are there any chrome tips that are best to get OR, is there a particular back box that would improve the acoustics?

Thanks,

SMG... I have since been informed that the SMG1 is nowhere near the performance of the SMG2 as in the CSLs. So I think I'll stay with safe manual :)

Flappy paddles - when introduced?

Out of interest, when did the flappy paddle gearbox appear on the Z4 please?

I was looking for a Z3 but after my search seemed to be going up in prices, I have now moved onto a Z4, either 2.5 or 3.0.

I think the paddles will be too new for me but thought I'd ask the question :)

Have you any idea what the Z4 2.5 is like Mark? I know the 2.2 Z3 needs a bit of working to get going.

I am trying to balance the cost of insurance, with the Z4 being a later car, it will be more than the Z3, which on a 3.0 is already getting a bit high (over £1000!)

Nice one Mark :) It was the nicest looking one that I had seen, a shame I was after fewer miles or I would have snapped your hand off.

As I can't seem to find any decent 3s with the right mileage I'm now considering Z4s!

That's the other option Chris if I can't find anyone. But as I said, since the guy messed about with his price ands tried to make it look like it was me that was seeing things, it has put a bit of a dampener on it.

Thanks for the offer Mick.

OXO, I know about the AA but would rather use someone who knows Z3s inside out.

It may be irrelevant now as the chap increased the price in his ad' by £500 last night, then, tried to tell me that I had been seeing things with the lower price!

Who best to inspect a Z3 in Kent please?

There is a lovely looking 3.0 that I am interested in but I would like to have it inspected by someone more knowledgeable than I, before traveling all the way down from North Yorkshire.

Does anyone have any recommendations for someone who could look at it for me please?

Many thanks,

No probs Stu - got your Facebook message. A check list would be much appreciated. What about the spot welds in the boot? And is there any known weak points on the engines to look out for, similar to the Vanos issues?

Ta,

It does look nice Taff, but it is sold (and silver!). What do people think about cars bought off ebay? I always think that it is a last resort for selling and not the route that someone who really cherished their car would normally choose, but I may be totally wrong. Appreciate all the help so far t...

Happy to up the rate a bit as it's a long day, but it may result in driving a Pistachio 3.0 back :) Failing that, does anybody know someone that could do an inspection for me in Kent please?

Wanted: Z3 - 3.0 01/02

Hello :) I am looking for a 3.0 Z3 (2001-2003)if anyone knows of any nice ones out there. I have seen Mark's titanium one which is, probably the nicest looking Z3 I have seen but, after a lot of thought, it is a little high mileage for me. It is for my girlfriend to use as a very low mileage daily a...
