Z4 M Coupe

I’ve been looking for a while and this came up recently.
A mate of mine lived not too far away and did the inspection for me.
The car was delivered today and now needs a good wash n polish.
I’m very happy with car.

Very nice indeed. Is that Midnight Blue?
What’s the interior spec? Looks like champagne leather.
Makes me hanker for my old one when I see post like this!

Thanks, it’s Carbon Black but it does have a Blue tinge in full sun.

It has extended Champagne interior, no sat nav.

I thought it had CSL wheels but they are from a BMW 1M.

One of the rear exhaust boxes had become loose and I thought it may be the double clamp between the box and centre pipe.
It was the flange on the centre pipe which had come clean away from the pipe.
Luckily a friend of mine had a piece of stainless steel exhaust the correct size so we fashioned a new flange and short piece of new pipe to fit.

Next job is one of the wheels needs a Refurb, hopefully that will be done next week.

I also need to change the key battery with the help of a handy YouTube video and get a different set of locking wheel bolts, I don’t like the OEM items.

I’ve got to admit this car is growing on me fast :D

It drives so much different to the other BM’s I owe.

My son has one and I have to say it is somewhat different.

Mine is mostly stock apart from Eibach front and H&R rear springs.
It is a bit unforgiving at times.
I’m a big fan of Michelin Pilot Super Sports and this has Continental Sport 3’s on the front and Continental Sport 6’s on the rear, very impressed with those although not had a drive in the wet yet.
