Hi guys thinking of buying z4 2.5i se any one know the mpg on this engine thanks
Probably around 30 mpg.
Obviously the harder you drive the figure drops.
Thanks badman is that around town or motorway thanks
Manual or auto?
Also depends on which variant engine is in the 2.5i. There were 2 different fitted ones at different times, and one has more HP (I don't mean the 2.5si). If I remember correctly the earlier engines were more powerful.
Personally having owned a 3.0i, I'd push for one of those
Manual and 192 bhp thanks
I'd expect 28-30 round town and a bit more on a run (35?)
Thanks it's on the 05. Done 53000 they want £6990 is that ok ?
Depends on overall condition. Difficult to value without seeing it. I'd have a look on eBay for similar cars and get a rough price.
Pistonheads Is worth a look as well
Seems a little steep. If you dont want to share the ad on the forum message it to me and I'll have a squint at it for you...
2.5 192bhp i get 31.7 mpg according to the obc, strange but that what it says in the hand book, dont seem to get it any higher what ever type of driving i do, never driven the 3.0 but my car is unbelievable poss the best car i have owned, and i have had a lot,
We have the 3.0 and get 28 around town and 32 on trips. When we go to Europe we usually get around 32 to 34
Gaz the early ones are less BHP 192 for the 2.5se and 208 for the 2.5si. Like wise the 3.0. 231 compared to 265 of the Si
My Z3 is 2.8 auto. My OBC says 32mpg but when I calculate it by miles driven against fuel used I get 28mpg. Best I've had by calculation was on my York trip last summer when I actually got 32mpg.
I work out my mpg at every fill up for my Zed, my Merc and my company car and I log it on a spread sheet. Must have a bit of OCD
My company car does better by calculation than the OBC, total opposite to my Zed.
@billz - I'm talking about engines before the 2.5Si was introduced - there were 192bhp and a 177bhp variants. The 192bhp was used in the original model released in 2003, and I'm not sure what year they switched to the 177bhp version (possibly at the first facelift).
Soz Gaz missed the bit of your post excluding the Si Doooh
No probs, I probably didn't make my original post that clear. I was trying to find the original source for knowing why I knew that, but in typical style I can't find it now.
192 bhp 2.5 and my computer mebob says 29.7 that's around the town and driven fairly briskly through the gears
