Custom mods all the way. Sounds like you don't like the black and white pattern. The PO probably applied adhesive decals on the roundels. You might be able to just peel then off.

BMW redesigned the 296 wheels by beefing up the weak areas and supposedly that stopped the cracking issue. Unless you nailed a pothole. No other Z4 wheel has had this problem so choose another...

Not exactly true. You can still get an MT in the 28i, just not in the I6 models.

40's isn't crazy low, but your summer tires are going to get less responsive as the rubber hardens. Drive more cautiously.

I don't know about the cost of headlight assemblies in Australia, but I can get one in the US for about $1000. It's an easy install. Might want to try it yourself.

If you're going for a 30i, then no year is better than another. That engine (N52) has not had any service issues. The same can not be said for turbo engines.

I would always choose an IL6 over a 4 cylinder engine. It's what made BMW famous and you'll never get the same sound from a smaller engine.
