2003 E85 Saphire Black 2.5i with Hard top. £4200

Post by DMC63 » Sun Feb 09, 2020 9:37 pm

It's with great sadness that I have to sell my Zed. I've had a few great drives in this car and it runs beautifully. The car is hardly used as I have a daily runner. 98552 miles. . MOT till June 2020. Service history but not all stamped up.
Ok here goes. Sorry if I repeat things...Any questions just ask. Comes with private plates Y6 LON thrown in. and original 03 plate. It has bilstien shocks with ebach springs all round. Storm handbrake and gearshift. Aliminium pedal covers. Brand new discs all round, brand new brake hoses all round, brand new capliers front, cermamic brake pads all round. The braking system is amazing, smooth and highly efficient. Headlights have been recently polished. New radiator fitted with expansion tank a few months back. It's had a new starter motor, new thermostat and housing, rocker cover gasket replaced, disa valves cleaned and checked. Strut brace between front struts. Roof motor relocation to boot by that lovely fellow in Hook. Wheel rims have been dipped black so can be peeled back to silver is you like. Soft top is in excellent condition, no rips, frays or leaks. New BMW oem windscreen fitted last year. New front ARB bushes, front track rods. De-badged but I still have the badges if you want to put them back on. Cream leather with immaculate carpets. Continuous dash, no horrible out of date screens to drag the look down. Back box delete by Pauls exhausts, (the last Z4 he done). Lovely tidy job of which I have the pics of the job being done. Sounds sweet without being a boy racer sound. No oil leaks or seeps. All electrics work perfectly, fully controlable and heated wing mirrors, windows and roof.
The usual things that could go wrong for a car made in 2003 have gone wrong and been sorted. Things like starter motor, gaskets and bushes.
Plenty of wear in the tires, pirelli and firestones. Staggered rims. The price reflects the money spent and condition of the car with the extras. Only run on Shell V power. Regular annual oil changes irrespective of mileage. Plugs and solenoids changed.

PLEASE NOTE THE HARDTOP IS NOT FOR SALE WITH THE CAR.

Paintwork comes up nice.
New BMW oem windscreen fittel last year. The old one was scratched by me trying to clean it with a dodgy scraperCream leather seats (not heated)
Bilstein B12 kit, has lowered the car to the same height a a Z4 sport. Handles like a dream.
10mm spacers on front 12mm on back with correct size wheel nuts. HR spacers with correct sized wheel nuts - Bought from DC performance £200, Give the car a nice stance and better handling IMHO.
New Disc valve inside housing. (New valve fitted just for peace of mind. There was not a problem with it)
New track rods.
Powerflex ARB front bushes
Sound generator fitted in engine bay.
Back box delete done by Pauls exhaust welding.
Roof motor relocated by Bowser. Soft top works perfectly everytime. Motor was not waterdamaged or rustly.
Storm gearshift knob and handbrack in stainless steel.
Aliminium pedals
New radiator and expansion tank
New front ARB bushes
Complete brakes overhaul a few months back

Wiechers Sport BMW Z4 E85 / E86 2.5l / 3.0l Front Strut Brace - Aluminum Racingline
£160.23 inc VAT Bought from DC performance
Front and rear HR spacers with correct sized wheel nuts - Bought from DC performance £200, Give the car a nice stance and better handling IMHO.
Original cd player fully working. Front loader, not multi loader.
Full range speaker fitted into door blanks making a full set of speakers.
Private plate Y6 LON (Plate goes with the car).
Doors have been sound proofed professionally, so no hollow tinny sounds and a quiter drive.

Pics with hard top is after bilstein B12 kit fitted.

Hi There. Tried to PM you but it seems to be stuck in my outbox! Looks very good. Can you clarify about the hard top. Details say not for sale but then its mentioned in the subject header. Cheers

Advert title says "with hard top", body text says no hard top. This will definitely confuse people and will result in lots of questions coming your way. I'd decide one way or the other and advertise in line with your decision if I were you, to keep potential buyers clued up and happy :thumbsup:

I have also just seen that this ad is over three months old.

But new pics posted yesterday so I'm guessing that it's still 'live'
