Wonder if you can attach gift aid to that, it would help the charities a lot.

Nice to see this gesture though.

Sunday viewing now not happening, too far away haha.

My wife was home late so no pics today. Possibility to get it washed and photographed tomorrow!


Now have Navid coming to see it on Saturday.

Did you have a Titanium Silver 2.5 before Navid?

Looking to return to Z4 ownership?

Cheers

Dave
That's correct Dave, got the Z4 itch again :roll:
I’ve just driven mine out for a run and after doing 30miles in the 335xd earlier, it’s made the Z4 stand out as something completely amazingly special again.
I’ve got the itch again too!

I’m gutted to let it go, but I’m happy that letting it go is doing some good for others, and that the Z4 will be going to an enthusiast who actually wants it.



I’ve just done a quick clean prep in the rain, ready for a bit of a spring clean tomorrow afternoon.

All is well with straightness everywhere except this small dink on the rear drivers arch.

I’ll update the advert fully tomorrow evening if everything pans out with the weather etc.

New pics, interior pics, etc.



pvr, I’ll make sure to take any tax incentives if any apply for these donations.

Cheers

Hi Dave

New to the forum but have been following it for a good year, so I understand you wanting the z4 to go to an owner that will appreciate the car.

I am interested in the z4, is it possible for a contact number to arrange a viewing. I would potentially look to view the car tomorrow.

Many thanks

Cameron

Hi Cameron,

I’m having trouble with my new R32, the service book isn’t turning up but I’m giving it some time before I call it a day and find another to buy.

I can’t be without a 2nd car so for now I can’t sell the Z4.


Navid is booked in to view the car next Sunday, 15th April.

You’re welcome to come view the car sooner, but Navid has first refusal to buy as I’ve had these delays at my end, so you’d have to leave me with an offer, and also realise there may be a bit of a delay due to my replacement car being delayed.

Where would you be coming from?

Many thanks

Dave

Hi Dave

Thanks for the reply. I understand, thats not a problem.

I am located in Warwickshire, so quite a distance !

I think it would be best if Navid was to view the Z4 next Sunday and if its still available I would be very interested to have a viewing. If the situation does change before then please do let me know and I would try to come up next weekend as I am very interested in the car.

Many Thanks

Cameron

I'm ever so sorry to hear of your loss buddy and what I've read is a very noble and selfless thing to do. I've registered here in the hope of finding a nice 3.0, I have just sold my 2.5 for what was meant to be a 3.0 but the seller took a better price and let me down, gutted now to have lost my Z4 and being miles down south keep missing then nationally due to working 6day weeks and having to arrange travelling. If your Z is at all available I would absolutely love a chance to re-home her.
Once again my condolences on recent times

Is this still for sale or did Navid take it in the end?

I got my new car so the Z4 is ready to go to a new owner.

I've taken recent photos of the car, and have a few updates on it's condition. Please read the original advert details in the first post, and then supplement the below information.

Sadly Navid hasn't had chance to come see the car due to my replacement car woes, and now he's going to be busy for several weekends so can't get to see it.


The car is now free to view and is still available for sale.



To add a few to the downsides:
  • While cleaning the car I noticed that there was some damp under the passenger seat. After some reading about door membrane seals, I tested with a watering can and there is water coming from behind the door card.
    Since the window regulator went at this side, I assume the membrane isn't doing it's job correctly.
  • Also now the weather is much warmer my door handles seem quite difficult. I find that they work fine if you push the door in as you pull the handle, or if I close the door a few times with the handle pulled they 'free up' for a bit.
    They've done this for years in the hot weather, but have clearly become worse with less and less use.
  • Also as the rear alloys are quite corroded on the insides, they are letting pressure down a bit. I'm not sure if the wildly fluctating temperatures and very low usage are exacerbating the problem, but they go from 35psi to 25psi over a few weeks.

I'm more than happy to fix these issues for a buyer if they want the car, but I'm also aware that many potential buyers will now be keen DIYers or may have preferences on how wheels are reconditioned, might be swapping them, might just get them reseated with tyre sealer, or how they go about fixing the door membrane etc.
I don't want to spend lots of money when a buyer might prefer to buy it cheaper and spend £50 on effective but cheaper fixes.

Given the distances buyers might be coming, and the worry about spotting such issues, I'm highlighting them here and you can decide for yourself before you come to view.
I simply don't want people to come see the car and then leave disappointed or worrying over issues.


Here are loads of images of the car taken yesterday. If anyone wants super high quality ones in their email I'll send them over.

I also have these extras included.
  • 3 spare good coil packs (one went, but I bought 5 new ones which all went in, I kept a few of the known good old ones as spares)
  • Rear diff oil seals (bought but didn't need when I did the rear diff oil)
  • Spare H7 bulbs (I replace in pairs, but keep good old ones as spares)
  • A brake sensor wire (old one was ok)
  • Some cable ties (no idea haha)
  • Petrol cap (rubber went, but it's functionally fine)
  • Original aerial
  • Pipe connector and jubilee (pretty sure it's for the pipe to the throttle body, new pipe came with these, so these are spare but useful)
  • Rubber washer for coolant temp sensor (postage was about 5x the cost of the washers, so bought a few (I think there are two spare))
  • Spare bolt for holding brake disc on (I collect these haha, OE ones are still on afaik, much nicer quality)
  • Halfords chip kit (donated by a Z4 forum member to me years back)
  • A bunch of door card clips (bought for when I did my black > red interior door card swap)
  • A fancy matched colour paint chip set with picks etc (£35!) (I had a bash at doing some chips with this kit, but for my skill level the Halfords one was just as good haha)

That is one fantastic advert for your car. That's not even going into the reasoning behind the sale.
I wanted this but for the wrong reasons. (Seats out and replace with standard) but because of your reason for sale I decided against it. I hope whoever buys it cherishes it as much as you have.
Good luck with the sale pal.

For now I think I’m going to pause the sale and rectify the growing issues list.

I can then sell the car to a wider market and avoid selling it for less than it’s worth.



If anyone is interested in the car at close to the current asking price despite the faults then get in fast as I’ll be starting to organise having work done this week.


Thanks
