Z4M Roadster or Z4 sDrive35i??

Hi. New here.
I own a Z4M Roadster, 38,500 miles that is currently having the passenger-side motor mounts repaired. Thanks to this forum, BMW is absorbing some of the cost, even though it is out of warranty.
I've never had any problem with the car. I did replace the motor for the convertible top last year though. It's a fun ride. I've owned it about 4 years.
I was thinking of trading for a Z4 sDrive35i with 23,500 miles though... mainly for the 6 year warranty that's being offered and because it has newer technology.
Can anyone out there help a girl out? Good trade or not?

I would go for the Z4sDrive 35i, given that it has the hard top convertible. Whilst the Z4m is a good car it seems that some of your failures are more about age than mileage. Plus peace of mind of the extended warranty, the only other consideration is cost, either part ex or sell your car privately and go for a cash type deal, this is a decision for yourself, look at trade in prices or how much your model and year are going for privately, are they selling??? Pointless selling privately if you cannot sell it........
There have been some issues with the Z4sDrive35i, you can read about them on the forums, at the mileage on the potential new they have probably been ironed out, but you can still check before you buy, having said this a 6 year extended mileage (provided it gives you the cover you require, not all warranties are the same) should give you again peace of mind!!!
