I don't see why a Z4MC needs a garage more than a 335 does. Also lots of people use their Z4 as a daily driver. The 335 does have a big advantage in practicality - it can carry 4 people comfortably...

I think I remember that the Z3 hood was at the time the largest single piece sheet metal stamping ever used on a car in recent history. So it would make sense that it may have to be a heavier gauge...

Perhaps the starter is going bad? You don't have a lot of miles on the car but parts can have early failure sometimes. Or a bad relay that isn't allowing the starter to get enough power? Even...
