How hard is it to drain the fuel from a z3? any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
draining fuel is useful if it won't start

in other case, put some "fresh" on on it, then use it till the end.
Then fill the entire fuel tank with fresh fuel, and add an additive (don't know what's the best to use, I used it a lot of years ago the last time) to clear all the "stuffs" in the fuel lines.

THEN change engine filter, all the dirts would have gone on it

think oil and fluid change (that you correctly wrote you're planning to do ) is the most important thing to do
