If the one you tested had run flats, then a switch to non-runflats will definitely get you over that 'bit' to softer. No need to mess with shocks.


Could it be that the shocks are a retrofit for...

Did you confirm that they had similar tires? Might the 07 have had non runflats?

I am not knowledgeable at all about tires and offsets, but from what I know, just the 3.0si and M models have different front brakes. I believe the 16's should work fine on your 2003 - just don't...

Getting rid of the runflats changed the ride from punishingly intolerable to just fine for me. Otherwise from what I've heard and read, the car that may work best for you is the Porsche Boxster.

Coolant leaks into oil after gasket failures are common enough and you hardly hear of engine failure after they are fixed. I think your car will be just fine!

I was interested in the other way around - Changing the filter frequently since it is cheap and easy to change

Changing filter between oil services

Is it worth changing the oil filter maybe a couple of times again during the oil change interval for the N52 engine?

Carry out the usual used car pre-purchase checks and you should be ok. There is always a risk for any used car but it is lower for the '08 Z4 than most other premium cars.

That is a tough list to top. You may have to go for the Z4 M. The 335i is a fine car and in my opinion is a better ride than the Z4, but I am a shallow person and love the Z4 for its looks. My...

I'd disagree. My hunch is that the shocks are not OEM. A wild guess - Might something be holding them in place that needed to be removed before installation?
