Wink 07 3.0Si coupe listing Ohio/Midwest

Been looking for a replacement BMW for my wife (e36 is sold after 10 years of ownership) Have been looking mostly for a 328 Coupe E92 and came close begining of December but the seller sold to someone else closer for $500 over our agreed price.

Anyway just came accross the following Z4 Coupe that would fit what I am looking for.
Anyone in Ohio/Illinois know this car?
Anyone want to weigh in on price or what to look out for on the 2007 z4?
I think the asking is pretty good. Any help is appreciated.

I will just say that I wish that was available when I bought my car. I love my MC but I'm not sure its necessarily worth 14k more than that.. Especially since I love brown interior! Go for it.. Before I get a new dd

Thanks for the input jophish17. I hit him up with an e-mail to pursue. Hoping someone on the boards knows the car or might be willing to take a look as i am quite a far distance from where the seller is-.

Asking price seems real reasonable, almost too reasonable for someone that just listed it for sale.

Embarrassed to say I have never driven a coupe, but have driven a conv. Am I right in assuming that the coupe is even more fun?

The price was something that concerned me too, but nothing a PPI wouldn't ease my mind about. Let us know how it turns out! And I've never driven a roadster haha I was just attracted to the coupe

That is one good looking car....that interior sure makes it. I think the price is reasonable for the lower mileage and the fact is is an SI model.

Happy Motoring - now go get it!

Depends if you want the ///M or not. Great deal sure....I personally tried a few out...found that for both a possible daily driver, and the cost of ownership of a ///M model versus a Z43.0i or si, that the ///M was not for me. Sure it would be great to own...but then again...I bought a 2006 with only 4000 mile on it. MINT!

That car is 10 minutes from my house. I've seen it out on the roads a time or two but never at any of the area meets. I'd be happy to go take a look at it for you.

Both cars are a great price.

The only other coupes priced in the teens have over 80k miles - one has 66k

Based on price / mileage that car is the very much the price leader.

Most coupes with mileage in the 30s are priced mid to high 20s.

What does this mean for your car? It's a private seller maybe he doesn't know the value? Maybe he needs or just wants to sell quickly? Maybe there's an issue with the car?

From the pics it looks like an apartment complex. Ad states it's garage kept.

This car will move quickly.


I just purchased an 08 si coupe with upper 20k mileage. I paid about $7500 more than that price, but it was the exterior / interior color and trans I wanted.

Thanks for the offer Ovaltine I might just take you up on it as it's 5 hours each way. I sent the seller an e-mail on friday but nothing yet. I will give him a call on Sunday if I don't see an e-mail back.

Yeah the asking is quite good. I am hoping he just needs to sell in a hurry and not because of any issues. Even though it is a rental complex the back ground of one of the pics shows some garages. Hopefully this will be the one as the search has been going on for a while now. Thanks for the input -
