Many dealerships will offer a BMWCCA discount if you ask for it. Keep that in mind too.

Please don't perpetuate that myth. The E85/E86 Z4's have NO requirement for reprogramming when a battery is replaced. The ancient E46-era electronics precede this requirement.

One other minor difference: no aux port on the '06, but it can be added - IF you can find the kit, which are rare as hen's teeth nowadays.

I put B6's on my first Z4MC at 40k miles with stock springs. Great combo, and they'll last 100k miles.

With lowering springs, pair them with B8's, which have the same valving, but a shorter shaft...

I strongly suggest taking a lot at the many options from cocomats.com - their Z4 mats are a perfect fit and of the highest quality of any mats I've ever owned. Great stuff.
