3.0i E85 Roadster - £1700

Post by fearless » Wed Oct 09, 2019 7:41 pm

Time has come to sell my Z4.

It’s a 2003 3.0i manual roadster in Toledo Blue. Gentleman spec cream and wood interior. It’s MOT’d til August 2020 and is currently sorn’d. It’s done 196k miles. I’ve owned it for 7 years, and it has been fantastic throughout.

Spec :-
Heated electric leather
Xenon headlights
MFSW
Sat nav
Cruise control
Quad exhaust
Facelift rear lights
PCD
AudioVox Mediabridge for bluetooth streaming.


Obviously, it’s a 16 year old car that has done some miles, so the bodywork is not showroom. Front end is stone chipped, arches are a bit bubbly, and there is some lacquer peel in places. But it still looks great and polished up nicely. Drive and runs nicely, nice rumble from proper quad exhaust from Z4m. It’s always been serviced on time, fluids changed that BMW thought were for life, had parts replaced as needed, suspension, bushes etc. Matching Goodyear tyres all round.

Bits that aren’t so good, interior is a little tired, sat nav screen can be temperamental, crack in drivers door card, parcel shelf currently not attached, rear bumper chopped for exhaust and lights so not totally smoothed. Roof works but locking mechanism is a little noisy.

All in all, it’s still a very solid car, and would make a good winter project for a perfectionist or a cheap cruiser for someone.

£1,700

Any questions, fire me a PM. Car is located in Tamworth.

:rofl: My thoughts exactly.

Had the same spec in mine, over Maldives Blue (Toledo was a close second). Still looks good I reckon, something nicely contrary about having that modern, minimalist dash in old-school roadster wood.
