Windscreen for 2004 Z4 ??

Did these cars come with a screen that goes behind your head to block the wind? Looks like the headrest should have something to slide out but mine doesnt?

Thanks,
Tim in Allen, TX

Welcome, Tim. There is not a windscreen that "comes" with the car. However, there are a few options, including one made and/or sold by BMW, for "after market" windscreens. The dealer threw in their windscreen when I bought my used Z4 from them.

Confirmed there are several BMW versions for the Z4. I have the basic mesh one but it does not zip down in the center like the z3 ones. I have a clear lucite one from Windblox for my z3 that I like very much. A very good low cost option you can leave in place all the time.

Mein Auto: Z4 Si, 330i
Made my own using the link - about 40 bucks and a saturday all said and done. But if you dont have the skills/equip for this I think Roadster Solutions has the best unit.

Installed it this weekend. Easy to install. Works great. Would definitely recommend it.

Many are not fan's of the leather slip on, but I liked it because it matched the black leather interior and gave the extension to it. I picked mine up at the dealership for just a little over $100 because it was the last one they had and they wanted it out of inventory for year end so not a bad deal.

Best regards

You nailed it, for me at least. I am not a fan of the "silver" roll bars on the non-M's (perhaps it's my years in the Z3 with its black roll bars) and so I like the fact that my windscreen's black leather fits over and covers the silver. Even with my Sterling Grey Metallic I prefer the black roll bars. Purely aesthetics, I realize, but it's why I went with the windscreen I've got.

Fair point. I am waiting until I get all my mods done and then I'll post the finished product.

For the record, currently completed or in the works:
1. Wind Jammer from Roadster Solutions-installed
2. Active Autowerkes ECU tune (at AA right now, hope to have it back by Thursday)
3. RPI Ram Air Scoop-installed
4. OZ Ultraleggera 18x8F 18x9R Bright Silver Rims-hope to have by Thursday
5. UUC Short Shifter Kit- hope to have next week (DSSR on back order and will be a month or so)

Getting there!!

P.S.- Just put Style 313 on my 335i with Continental Extreme DW. New sig pic with those wheels soon also.
