Newbie first time Z4 owner from Tyne and Wear with a few issues to fix....

Post by Bewick » Tue Mar 13, 2018 10:20 pm

Hello from the North East. Finally bought my first Z4; a 2004 2.5 SE manual model. Bit rough around the edges but hopefully nothing I can’t put right!! Main issue at the minute is an engine squeal mainly on start up. Here is a link to my other post explaining a bit more in depth of what’s happening. Thanks for letting me join
