IIRC, car62 once mentioned how folks worry so much about the initial purchase price, and then are willing to spend $thousands$ on modifications. I find the Z4MC adequate as-is. Okay, I use a mild...

I put mine on the ledge where the wire comes out from the headliner. That little space between the rubber seal and the roof line. It just fits and I had no reception problems.

That is a very good price. I paid more last year for an 06 with 12k miles, same color. I really enjoy the car and never regretted buying it. The mileage is not unreasonable for a 3 year old daily...

I recall that the folks at CarboTech recommend one step down on the rear. So XP-10 on front would call for XP-8 on the rear. At least that's what they told me, twice.
