It couldn't have been a Z4 M because those were only made from 2006 to 2008 and all Z4 M models were made in Spartanburg, SC, hence no EDs. This was the E85 (Roadster) and E86 (Coupe) chassis. The one is my sig pic is a 2006 Z4 M Roadster (E85).

If you're speaking of the newer and current E89 Z4 chassis, BMW has not (yet) offered a ///M model. The Z4 sDrive 35is (awful name) is considered to be the E89 "replacement" for the E85 Z4 M, although it has EPS and only comes with a DCT, whereas all Z4 M models came with hydraulic steering and were only offered with a 6MT. At any rate whatever your buddy picked up in Munich was not a ///M.
