As suggested already make sure you check for the Aux-In which is on the sloping panel under the AC controls. You wouldn't know its there unless you look. That may save you a lot of trouble. As...

I think I might use seat covers in the summer if I had a beige car! This is another reason I dislike beige interiors. Black is much better at staying clean looking.

Does the speed of your wipers change on its own when you put it on the intermittent setting? If so, you have rain sensing wipers.

Never heard of "cut-outs" on an aftermarket muffler. I had an OEM sport muffler on a 2002 Boxster which had some sort of electric adjustment(automated) and was very dissatisfied as it rattled like...

I will tell you an even better way - Magic Eraser's. They are amazing for removing scuffs.

X2!!! The last thing you want is to spend a bunch of $$$ on a new exhaust and installation only to be disappointed.

I would, as you suggested, look into different pads. Hawk makes great pads(I use their ceramic pads on my M) and also take a look at EBC who has many different pads for different uses.

Not at all. CAI gives almost nothing either. The only decent bolt on is the euro header and that is quite expensive. It still doesn't give you much in the way of power. 30-40hp is almost...

Sound is easy, HP is not. I wouldn't be looking to an exhaust for more power. It all depends on how much sound you want. My pick of the Remus exhaust was based on lack of drone. I am very happy...

If the rear tires are new and you just got the car, why not just replace the fronts with the same tires? They were probably not worn out so the dealer saved $$$ by leaving them. I would certainly...

Even the roadster is plenty stiff. I wouldn't recommend it. The Z4 was designed very well in this regard.

PDR is amazing in my experience. I had them take two very minor dents out of my gas door and trunk. Can't even tell they were there.

In looking at the link you provided it appears you asked if they would make some for your Z4. If they do it please be sure to tell us how they fit and if you are happy. Others may ask in the future.
