Hello, noob here. After 9 years in my 01 S2000, I bought an 07 Z4 3.0si. I've been driving it about a month now and am quite impressed with its handling (feels like a BMW-I've driven a couple friends' 3 series some years ago) and amenities...MMMM, heated seats! I like the built in nav system and the computer in general.

About me, I retired from state (Massachusetts) service after working with folks with developmental disabilities for 32 years. This retirement gig is the best: lots of time to ride the bicycle, do some painting, a bit a volunteering and the occasional drive. Once the honey-do list is finished!

Here I am, picking up the Z:

Howdy, I'm Brian - in the market for a used MC, but it's super hard to find any it seems.

Trying to be patient and wait - my ideal is between $25k-$30k and '06-'08: I love white and I really think it's gonna have to be that or maybe red? Preferably stock so I can mod it myself.

Anyhow, if anyone has any leads or ideas where to look other than cars.com and edumunds (and I guess ebay?) shoot me a PM?

Much love,

There is a SI Coupe at Capital Euro Cars in Tallahassee, blue with white interior. They are showing 27k on the sticker. You might just have to settle for a SI. Good luck, keep looking.

There is a 2006 with only 8000 miles on it on Auto Trader. Someone has been sitting on that one.

Thanks guys - just saw that white auto trader one on cars.com - I'm in the DC area so that's far but I may have a long layover in LAX in a few weeks so maybe I could test drive it and see if they'd ship? It's in LA... sigh.

Lurked around here for a few weeks and decided to register. I just recently purchased a 2009 z4 35i about 3 weeks ago. Up until then I had only ever owned Dodge Challengers. 3 of them actually, and traded in a 2012 SRT8 on this BMW. So far I am extremely happy with the decision, this is a much better car on every level. Just like most enthusiasts I have the mod bug, so I'm already looking at some mods. I'm going to be purchasing some APEX ARC-8 wheels (they seem to be really popular but they're my favorite that I've found by far) and definitely want to get a custom exhaust. I put borla exhausts on my Challengers, so I have to find something I like on the BMW. I've searched around for exhaust options, and haven't made up my mind yet.

This seems like a great board and I'm happy to be a part of it. Here are some pics of my new z4

Hey everyone, I just purchased a z4mr. At first I wanted a 3.0si but could not find any that I liked so I decided upgrade to the M. I am loving it so far just have to get used to the gearbox. Thanks to everyone on here, I have been reading posts on here ever since I got my license at 16 waiting for the day I could own a z4!

Hi David, you'd have better luck posting in the E89 Z4 section, as this part of the forum is dedicated to the E85/E85 of the Z4, not the current models. Congratulations in any case and enjoy!

Welcome! There is a wealth of resources here to help with maintenance and also with spending $$$ on the car in mods! Like that Imola Red, looks kinda familiar.

Congratulations! Great color interior to go with that color.

Congratulations. Tip on 1st to 2nd: Pull down and to the left; don't rush the shift; keep a bit of throttle in to keep the revs up a bit--that smooths things out 1->2->3.

Hello and M coupe parts available

Hello everyone. I'm driving a 2007 ILB z4m coupe. Car over past year has been converted to a track only toy. I became so addicted to HDPE days back in 2006 with z4m convertible that I located a suitable coupe to trade and began transformation. I found a suitable one at the Ferrari dealership and the salesman almost traded me straight up until his boss figured out the coupe was worth 5K more (an unusual situation for them that coupe more valuable that vert). Anyways, my wife is making me get rid of spare parts out of our storage room. I'm given some to a friend with a black z4 m coupe. I currently have my original M sport seats up for sale on ebay (removed at 21K miles and in great shape) and other parts that's I'm listing as well if anybody on the forum is interested? Car is now fully caged and has Recaro Hans SPG racer.
Thanks,
Jon

Wow! I'm sure quite a few here would love to see your track setup, specs, cage, etc. If you have time, post it up over in the Track Section.

Too bad you didn't sneak out with the coupe for a straight trade.

Hey everyone, longtime lurker but I finally made the plunge and bought an 07 3.0si coupe. I've loved these cars since I first spotted one in 08. Hope to have many years of enjoyment with it! I will be DD'ing it too!

Hello ZPost community!

I've browsed around here and on other BMW/Z4 forums for a few years now, but never registered, until today - April Fool's Day.

Anyhow...

I drive/own/maintain a 2005 BMW Z4 Roadster 2.5i (I love saying/writing that)

Looking forward to contributing to and learning from the ZPost.
