What to look out for...?

Post by maxman » Fri Feb 09, 2018 11:21 am

I have a 3.0,Just to give you an idea of running costs Insurance £220,RFL £305.MPG av 33.For that you get a grin every time you go out.Servicing should only cost a few pounds more than a 2.0.Come resale time it should sell easier.Saying all that if you have a bad back the z4 is not a car I would recommend ,quite low to get out of and if still on runflats a bit on the hard side.

Just been to see a nice SE, but it only has one key. :(
How much is it for a new key, all coded?

Cheers

They are quite expensive from the stealers. There are at least a couple of guys on here that can supply & code a new key at very reasonable prices. Have a search, here's one I found:

Thanks for that - very helpful link.
That car has now sold - oh well. I've been looking at facelift (E86?) models, but there are one or two nice late pre-facelift (E85?) cars about.
Apart from the obvious external differences to lights, what's the difference between them - if anything?

Cheers
