2004 Z4 2.5 SMG for Sale
Mileage=63000
Full Service History

I bought a 2004 Z4 2.5 SMG to use but now I noticed 2 things which I believe someone who understand the fault and into SMG can have it.

-1--- The doors/key will not open/work even after putting a new battery

2-- Car drives but it jumps gear to Neutral
I am thinking this might be a quick fix but i cannot find an z4 smg repairer in Bristol, so it up for grab!Car has Full-service history


Pls pm if you want the car or for more details car is in Bristol.

As this is a for sale Ad’ - as such, it might be a good idea to post an asking price, with the issues you’ve already noted :?

Best of luck with the sale :thumbsup

Thanks woolybear. pls see more details below.
1--Car starts and drives but after a while it jumps gear to Neutral

2--The roof switch does not work but when you try to use the CAR key to unlock the door, the roof automatically unfolds.

3-- Interior of car is good,
Local mechanic thinks might be ECU and suggest that might solve the gear issue and the malfunctioning electronics

Nice car you could try and get issues solved
Try Autobase in Chipping Sodbury if you are Bristol based
John is very honest and will likely give you a answer to issues and a cost to fix at minimal cost for a review based on my experience with him
Do not expect Dick Lovett coffee and cake experience, but reasonable cost and honest feedback

Nice low mileage example. I think you will be better off getting the issues fixed or offering at a lower price if you just want to move it on .

Have you owned this for a while, or did you buy it with the intention of fixing?

I ask because the MOT expired on 29/03/2021, so I’m guessing it’s been sat around somewhere for a while.

Yes, You are right, MOT expired and since the doors aren't working it will fail MOT. I have owned it for less than 2 month and it was intended to by fixed .
