Looking for a specific car

Post by Darlodoug » Mon Aug 12, 2019 7:57 pm

Good evening to you all. I'm new to the forum and joined because I'm looking for a Z4, 2014 onwards. I want one in deep sea blue with Canberra Beige Kansas leather. I'd like a 28i, automatic with low mileage and a high specification. I guess many people are looking for a similar car but if you don't ask you don't get!

Hi and welcome to the forum. :thumbsup:

That sounds like a great colour combination, but it might be hard to find on a 28i Automatic.

Just a thought, but it might be worth considering a 20i as well - you can get them re-mapped to similar power.
Z4 3.0Si Sport - Coupe for added stiffness!
Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey, Cirrus trim & 295s. Cruise, Storage and pdc. E90 330i as a DD.
Gone - Ruby Black, Pearl Grey & 135Ms. Xenons, heated seats and Professional speakers.

Thanks for the reply. The car is for my wife - we're both in our 60's so maybe the 2.0i would be enough for us! I did however think there was a big price difference (a couple of thousand) between the 2.0i and 20i 28i when new so thought you must get more for your money than just more BHP? I actually missed out on a 28i as described at Dick Lovell's in Bristol - I was on the phone about it last week and the sales guy went to check on whether they'd reduce it by a few hundred - he came back to the phone and said it had been sold! I'm not in any hurry so will for the time being look out for the car I've described. I'll maybe lower my expectations in a few months if nothing has come up. Cheers and thanks again for the advice.

Hi, both the 20i & 28i use the same 2.0 engine, it’s just software changes that alter the power output. The 18i is the same as well but that car usually comes with a lower specced interior :thumbsup:
