Hi all,

Are there any new Z4 owners out there who can give some feedback on the car, namely any roof issues, rattles or creaking? I have heard this can be an issue but would like it confirmed if possible.

Looking this year at replacing the 1 Series for the 2.0 M Sport model.

Cheers,

Tim.

Cheers Liam, I knew someone had one but I couldnt remember who :ymblushing:

Not sure on colour either Titanium :) or Saphire black with coral red leather.

I was all set looking for a Z3M and had been offered one, then looked at Z4M but factoring in running costs and the fact I can't face getting rid of the Z3 the 2.0 Z4 appeals, its still nippy but economical.

I have heard that the roof doesn't fit properly, leaks like a sieve, the wheels wobble, the heater just blows cold air, the engine overheats, the seats are rock hard, the radio crackles, the panels don't line up and the gearbox rattles.
Enjoy..



ps im not the slightest bit envious.... :coolsteer) ^:)^

Lost it on a roundabout and just managed not to crash does not constitute a drift :D .

For : The Z4 looks amazing, and the cabin oozes class. It’s great to drive, with strong engines, capable handling and a supple ride.

Against : There isn’t much space in the boot when you’ve got the roof down, and an Audi TT is more fun to drive.

I disagree, i drove the Audi TT last night, and much prefer the drive of my Z4 35is, i think the weight distribution is all wrong on the Audi

Killing you !!!!! but you've rescued your poor little zed from the dungeon (I mean garage) so you get to drive it around whilst you wait, and it's been a glorious day today - proper top down weather.

You need to get out in your little z3 and re-capture the magic
