What do you think of this Z4M?

Hey Guys,

I was just wondering what you think of this Z4M ( http://www.cars.com/go/search/detail...nal&listType=1 ) or if you have any info on it? As far as the guy was telling me it's in good condition and is up to date on it's maintenance. I didn't get a chance to ask if inspection 2 has been done yet. Also, I'm aiming for this one ( http://www.cars.com/go/search/detail...nal&listType=1 ) but the sales person I've been contacting says it'll probably be sold tomorrow. Thanks for all the help in advanced!

Pretty high mileage on the first, but one owner if validated is good, assuming they maintained it.

Not much else one can tell from a listing. A PPI is, as always, recommended. It's the best money you can spend on the car. Just no way to tell by looking alone. It's a great negotiating tool too. Lets say the rotors are just about gone. That's good for knocking 1,000 - 1,400 off the price (4 rotors on the M will run 1k in parts alone, not counting pads or labor).

Buy my 2007 silver gray/imola red M roadster instead. 44K miles, inspection 2 scheduled to take place next Tuesday. 100% stock...

Thanks for the response Finnegan! Sent you a PM Vertigo. Anyone else have an opinion on the car?

Wow, the values of the roadsters seems to be well below that of the coupes. Interesting since they cost more when new.

The coupes pop up a lot less on the autotrader sites. I have only seen a couple on there. Lots of roadsters for sale. I guess the folks that buy the coupes buy them and keep them more than the roadster.

~3000 Roadsters vs. ~1800 Coupes in the US so the Coupes are rarer. Also, you can track a Coupe with most if not all clubs, not so with the Roadster. In my ideal world I would also own a Coupe to track and all of my performance/suspension mods would be done to the Coupe.

In my opinion the difference in mileage shouldn't be a factor, what should be is the condition and how well it was maintained. I'd rather have one with higher miles that was always highway driven, garaged, and well maintained than a low miles car that was driven in the city and the oil changed every 10k.

As said before, the only way to know for sure is a PPI if you're not comfortable with inspecting one yourself. This is definitely more important if you're not a DIYer.

Edit: The price looks pretty good on those if everything turns out good. I paid 26k for my 07 coupe with 49k miles on the clock. Might have been a little high but the body and interior is in fantastic condition and it was within 100 miles of my house, AND the dealer delivered it for free.
