Glad you are ok. Pretty decent upgrade from the weakest to the strongest motor. Should be quite a change. Have fun!

Condolences and congratulations. A lot of the 08's are moving to second owners now. Prospective owners in the market for the newest and lowest mileage cars should act soon.

Sorry to hear of your loss, but am glad to see you got such an upgrade! Care to post pictures of the old car so we can all see how it held up? Just out of curiosity, how did the insurance company treat you on the totaled car?

Insurance company did great and was very helpful. The car held up great MY son and I was ok we walked away with only a little bit of sorness and some seat belt rash LOL. Gods hands was covering us is all i can say. The impact was only AT 35MPH.

Yikes! Glad to see everyone made it out safe! Did you have the passenger airbag turned off for your son?

Well the up keep of the soft top was alot of work as i do not have a garage to keep it in. There is not that many coupes in my area also i have seen a total of 3 and i really liked the way it looked also.

Mein Auto: 2007 BMW Z4 3.0 Si
Thank God, you're OK.

Like you I just recently purchased a 2007 Z4 Coupe 3.0 Si. with 5,000 miles got a pretty good deal. The previous owner didn't like the way it rode. Right place at the right time I guess. I'm not a big fan of convertibles.

I fell in love with the design when it first came out and wanted one in emerald green but at the time they were hard to get and I was on a waiting list. I leased a 2007 BMW 328XI instead and it was great, however I saw this gem back in March of this year and talk to my wife about it and she said if we bye out the 328XI we'll have 30,000 miles on the 328 vs getting this one at a lower price for 5,000 miles. It was a no brainer.

My "toy" is the exact same color as yours rims, etc. I wish you all the best and I don't know about you but I love to feel every turn, bump, etc. Makes me more focus on driving. I usually don't have the radio on, I just love to drive this awesome machine.

All the best

I see that the passenger's side airbag did not deploy. Is that because you disabled it for your son?

Did you ever use the car-seat harness for your son?
