For the money, the Z4 / Z4M is an awesome sport car; you won't find a Z4 for $6,400 - $7,700 USD; is your budget you noted what you intend to to spend?

He's in the UK and there used Z4 prices are ridiculously low.
I've seen pre facelift 3.0i cars under 2k, so his budget is very very generous, when shopping for a non M e85 Z4
With his budget he can get a facelift one with the 265hp n52 engine.

If you want an automatic gearbox, certainly go for a facelift one (so 2005+).
The pre-facelift automatic gearboxes are all 5 speed and definately from an earlier generation. All facelift automatics are 6 speed.
When going for a pre facelift one, get the 3.0i, it has a 6 speed manual gearbox (all smaller engines are equipped with a 5 speed)
