Emailed you as giving consideration to an E89, so might be tempted to sell.

I’m in Bristol, so not that far.

Thanks.

3.0 Manual z4

Post by wonkydonkey » Wed Feb 12, 2020 7:01 pm

My car is currently available though not yet advertised. It's a 2003 3.0i manual Roadster in Sterling Grey on 112,000 miles, in Somerset. Price will be around half of your budget. Heated memory seats, cruise control, good service history, loads of maintenance done in my two years of ownership (new rear springs, new front and rear brake discs and pads plus shoes, recent pair of tyres, recent brake fluid, recent new battery etc). While I can't honestly describe it as genuinely "immaculate", I will say that I've never had so many compliments on a car I've owned :) Selling as I have bought a Z4M.

That’s one pretty looking; cared for & sorted Z4..
The lovely set of 224’s, facelift front bumper, B12 uprated suspension, M Sport seats... :thumbsup:
Good luck with the sale & at the asking price - this won’t be around for sale very long, at the ask I suspect :driving:

Cheers

Thanks woolybear, I’m in two minds to be completely honest... but thought I’d reply to this wanted thread as there’s another Z that’s sorely tempting me. I could buy the Other Z and sell my current one at leisure, but I don’t really want to leave one of them outside if I can help it.... still mulling :?

Ooh, that's a thing of beauty! I miss my e85 a lot. Should never have sold it!

What you thinking of replacing with?

Thank you :thumbsup:

There’s a couple of options I’m weighing up, probably why I’ve not done a ‘for sale’ thread for this yet.... and may still not end up doing so.

I’ve owned 3 Z4’s already, a 2.5si an E86 Si and this one. This one is the most complete, best planted car of the three... I might just treat it to a Royals steering wheel re-trim and a beefier sounding exhaust 8)

You won't go wrong with an E89. Different car altogether from the 85/85, but a very enjoyable drive. I'm going to miss mine once it sells for sure.

If you decide to stick with yours you should definitely consider the Chinese Mewant steering wheel covers. I did mine and it was incredible. £18! Search "Mewant" on here and you'll find plenty of threads on it

I haven't taken any helpful, simple, clear "for sale" pictures of the car yet as I was planning on waiting for the sun to emerge, so here is a selection of posey pics to give you an idea:
