160K Mile MOT 2004 Z4!

Thought I'd share this with you all...

Not bad I don't think for a car that's used properly and that's on 160,000 miles!

Good on blighty and the MOT test tho....

Get a mewant leather steering wheel cover. Takes a bit of time to fit but do-able for a novice. Looks factory fit when finished and adds extra thickness to the steering wheel. Costs about £20.

Great suggestion, thanks! Thinking about getting it re-trimmed as well.

I'd go for the Royals retrim personally, that's what I did! Mine's on 160k too, still going strong!

Another 'thumbs up' for royals. Stick around the forum long enough, they pop up on the buy and sell section :)

You're lucky the airbag light was so easy to get rid off! The door is an interesting one, assuming it was the passenger side, would that have also been a fail??

How many laps of the Nordschleife did you do in Germany? And did you have traction control on or off?

If the pads were new before, then they shouldn’t have worn to the wear indicator, especially as the rears do a lot less work than the fronts.

Also your steering wheel looks like it just needs Dodo Juice and some elbow grease. Personally I wouldn’t bother with a re-trim unless you wanted to go for Alcantara.

Hi and welcome to the forum Joel - eventually! :thumbsup:

I've enjoyed watching your videos, and my car appeared briefly in the one you did at the Ace Cafe in 2018!

RBM is a good choice too - my car has been there a few times this year. The car sales place next door only started focussing on Z4s after they saw how many had been through Ross' workshop. :lol:

And congratulations on your mileage milestone!
Coupes because stunning!

Why has it taken you this long to join the z4forum! I've been following your IG and watching your YT from the beginning - I'm that person who persuaded you to get a backbox delete - not sure if you remember 8)

+1 on the Mewant steering wheel cover. Did mine in suede. Pretty easy install.
