2008 Z4 3.0Si Sport Roadster £6500** reduced*** Manual Stratus Grey 90k Miles

Post by Batmobile4 » Wed Apr 18, 2018 7:46 am

Owned this Vehicle since August 2017 and completed a road trip to Italy via Switzerland in this car.Before I went the car had new alloys and tyres 18”, a full service including spark plugs at Quarry BMW specialists in Sheffield also including coolant inspection and handbrake tightened. Also other work including wheel alignment and also a refurb of the ABS unit which now has a lifetime warranty, this is a common problem and the car had intermittent dash lights for the traction and abs safety systems, this was carried out by BBA Reman and I have the receipt for the ABS unit in the paper work.comes with book pack and 2 keys.
The car has full service History and stands at 90k miles on the clock,recent service 28/9/17 3400 miles ago,the full history is as follows 8 Stamps
Barons of Farnborough BMW Pre delivery Check 31/1/2008
Rybrook Shrewsbury BMW Oil Service/Brake Fluid/micro filter 14,540miles 19/4/2010
Rybrook Shrewsbury BMW Inspection1/Brake Fluid/micro filter 33,412miles 13/3/2012
BM Wirral BMW independent Oil Service 52,569miles 7/11/13

MSM Ltd BMW MiNi specialists Inspection1 81,455 miles 27/9/16
Quarry Motors BMW specialists Oil Service/spark plugs 86,638 miles 28/9/17
Lots of receipts for service and all old MOTs to back up mileage record
The Car has 6 previous owners and is a 2008 3.0 Si Sport(265bhp) Model roadster with rare manual gearbox. The gears are smooth and effortless and the car drives great for a 10year old car. The Z4 has the upgraded rear boot mounted hood pump which keeps it dry and free from problems and the roof opens superb every time no problems there, and is superb condition no leaks or holes anywhere.
With the car been the sport model it comes with the upgraded M sport suspension,slightly larger brakes,M Sport Button! M sport black heated leather seats with memory function, also an extra option is the piano black interior inserts which really looks classy in the cabin,also comes with M sport thick multi functional steering wheel,auto lights,Auto wipers,rear park sensors electric door mirrors and windows, Auto dip rear mirror, front fog lights , headlight washer jets ,automatic air con and on board computer,stubby Ariel and all usual BMW Z4 refinements, cup holders,etc. Other extras are the smoker package(ash tray/lighter) the essential rear centre Removable wind deflector and added upgraded hi fi speakers (extra in doors and rear base behind seats) with a kenwood head unit CD/am/fm/DAB/AUX/USB/iPod/Bluetooth/phone connection hands free with steering wheel operation,10 speakers (I think) I ha e also the old head unit and original Ariel if wanted, the tyres are non run flats and I have a space saver available if wanted.
The black leather is in very good condition bar a few wear marks on the bolster and the car comes with velour floor mats and storage compartments.
The car comes in Stratus Grey 2008 Metallic and is in good condition except stone chips on the front which if I was keeping car I would maybe make that my next job but it’s usual for a 10yr old car, but generally is very good, the brake calipers are MSport blue painted and the alloys are 18” twin spoke M sport. Genuine reason for sale, priced at £6650 Or very near offers,no silly offers there are not a lot of these 3.0Si models with the newer high power engine around,not many were built in facelift model 2006-2008, especially with the more fun manual gearbox and great colour combo. This car is a great example of a future classic.Payments would be by bank transfer only, or if cash buyer would have to come with me to the bank which is local. Thanks for looking ! please feel free to ask any questions and I will answer as honestly as possible will only PX for C63 or M3 I’m looking to buy next thanks Andy

Nice to see a "legend" return to the forum :driving: this car a very well known one being owned by Paulgs1000 who covered epic roadtrip miles with it before i bought in autumn 2016 with around 80k on , drove pin sharp & i took to France in the October roadtrip with other forum cars .
Had 19 inch alloys when i sold it & didn't have the ///M grill decals :cry: https://www.instagram.com/p/BMHR_ZEjY3C ... dybmwheels.

Hi, yeah it’s a superb car to drive, I removed the 19” wheels as they were catching front and back in the arches, the tyres came brand new with the 18” wheels which I bought from a tyre supplier, I really wasn’t keen on the Zeta alventi tyre but after a road trip through France(rain) Switzerland (-3c) the alps and several spirited drives on 6 Swiss/Italian passes and onwards to Lake Garda (+20c) I can honestly say I was completely amazed and the car drives way better than on 19” bridgestones... brakes must have been done b4 I bought the car there is plenty of meat left on the pads and the discs look new

The 19s were 8j & 9j et 38 & on the tyres i had fitted they didn't rub :? tested with quite a bit of spirited driving :driving: :D
I had a new windscreen fitted around 80k due to excessive stone chips after Paul previously took the car around the NC500 :cry:

I wonder if the previous owner had new tyres with bigger profile fitted then the were terrible , can’t see why he wouldn’t replace with the same though, they were Bridgestone that’s all I remember they were changed the first couple of weeks and the ride was way better too

Contis were on when it left me , 255 35 rear & 215 35 front iirc .
They weren't even runflat suitable rims so wouldn't have functioned correctly in runflat situation .
Did you buy if off "Andy" lived near Todmorden ? Traded mountain bikes from home for a living ?

Had someone inbox me then remove the message before I could read it, also a guy John on Gumtree offering a oil painting or two for the car? Strange but not much interest or views on the car yet 😑🙄

made me chuckle about the guy offering an oil painting.
that's 3 people including myself that have received that enquiry via gumtree.
I fleetingly advertised mine a while back, then changed my mind, but did make me laugh :lol:

Surprised that no one has mentioned that this si has had a new roof fitted during my ownership. Had it done under warranty when one of the rear strips of the heated rear window stopped working - just one strip but after drawing it to their attention BMW agreed to put that right by fitting a new roof - I was delighted!
So it will be in better condition than an original roof, being fitted in Autumn 2015. :thumbsup:
Also at the same time I was prepared to pay for new roof motor if it needed replacing but it was in immaculate condition (I have photos of it) and had it relocated in the boot very neatly by Durham Dave - who has now done scores of relocations.
So that's one of the Zeds worries ticked off for any potential purchaser :D :thumbsup:

Many great memories of this Zed - such an easy car to own and use and cheap to run. I loved it and I miss it! (Kept it 6 months after I bought my M as I was in 2 minds which Zed to keep and it took me some time to make my mind up).

All the best with the sale - whoever buys it, encourage them to post on the Forum I'd love to keep up to date with it :thumbsup:
Imola Red/Imola Red ///M (Ultimate fun), replaced 2008 3.0si Sport Stratus Grey/Piano black (Serious fun) replaced 2006 Silver Grey Facelift 2.0i Sport (terrific fun). MX5 for many years, TVR Chimaera and many motorbikes.

I did think I’d seen a receipt for a new roof but when I looked at the paperwork last I couldn’t find it, so didn’t want put any false information on the add, what year was the new roof fitted? I’ll check the paperwork and add it to the advert, I’ve had a few tyre kickers and silly offers for the car, I can’t get near the asking price I’ll keep her, love driving it tbh Thanks ,Andy
