Z4 2.5i '05 Plate £2000 Reduced

Post by LordJimothy » Fri Jan 13, 2023 1:24 pm

I am having to let my Z4 go as we now have a dog, so it's intended use is redundant!

-MOT till May 2023



-Heated cream leather in good condition

-6 CD auto-changer

-Sapphire Black

-Power hood in full working order.

-Unused cover included

- 4 new tyres recently fitted

Good Bits:

Since I have owned (May 21) I have had new disks and pads fitted, new springs all round, new oil gasket (so no leaks etc) and a new steering rack (refurbished original part) fitted. Front wheel bearings replaced. Also had handbrake mechanism replaced and new belts. There are NO warning lights! I had a full service at 85K. There's been regular service stamps in the book.
Recent rear shock to pass MOT. Another year added! I average 35MPG in this car and always use premium fuel, and run a cat cleaner through every few months.

Bad points:

-In the last week the wipers have stopped working intermittently - I think those in the know can clean the motor from what I have seen online
-Does require some attention to wheel arches, although nothing major. *I have 2 colour matched rear wings and a passenger door that will come with the vehicle*
-Only 1 key
-Slight squeak from rear drivers wheel - goes away after car has warmed up.

I remember you having this for sale before and was very tempted. Good spec and love the wood interior. At that price and with the bits you have, it wont hang around I’m sure. GLWTS :thumbsup:

Nice :thumbsup:
I see it has extended leather, worth mentioning as it adds a much better finish to the doors. Also you get leather sun visors and pillars etc round the windscreen.

Good luck with the sale :thumbsup:

The seats are “New England” which is much nicer than the standard, but how can you tell it’s extended? Wouldn’t the A-pillar and sun visors be in cream leather too?
