Had a Z3 from 24 to 27 years old, then a Z4M from 27 to 33 years old. Those were the only cars I owned during that time period. Hopefully will be back to a roadster in a decade or so.

I agree.

Did the top motor myself, and it took about two 6 hour days.

Fairfax can see all records from any BMW service center (infact they did this for me this morning). But they are remiss to hand those records off for "privacy reasons" - even if you now own the car.

You'll have to drive both to determine which you prefer.

The Z4M is likely to hold it's value much better than the Z4 3.0 or the M3.

I'd have to do a little research. I think it'll be in the 22k - 25k range. But that's just a guess.

PM me if that's generally in your range. I can send you the details of the car.

I have the same debate right now. Three cars, two garage spots. Either I play musical garage spots, or I park one on the street.

Anyone want to fix this problem for me and buy my Z4M? :)

Sorry to disappoint.

I'm still learning the characteristics of the M3. Honestly, it's almost too powerful for daily driver use in the DC area. Like riding a thorough bred in the Macy's day parade.

Since it's a closed system and assumably the issue was that the cylinders are leaking - I'd guess the repair would be to re seal them. Seems difficult and risky for the next person to use.

And to make matters worse, the problem was resolved by simply unplugging the battery for 30 seconds.

Mods, please move this thread to the Z4 form. Sorry about that.
