E85 is the BMW internal designation for the platform of the Z4 that started production in 2003. As the years go by, a car maker will make improvement to the option list and/or body styling but the platform will mostly stay the same.

I do not know the specific differences between the MY05 Z4 and the previous years or the later years for that matter.

E86 was the platform number for the coupé version of the Z4.

There were quite a few little changes for 05, like clear lights and doing away with the gray interior trim. Then in 06 they had a facelift with a lot more changes.

04/04 is like the magic date for most of the electronic changes like remote roof and passenger window auto up (which my 03/04 doesn't have )
