  2. Z Series
    Hey everyone! New to the forum. The issue I'm having is locating the right part and I've been back and forth to the BMW dealership and they keep giving me the wrong part. Recently bought a 2005 Z4 (2.5L) and noticed one of the threaded studs was broken off. What I'm looking for is I think a...

    Hello Guys I just purchases a 2003 Z4 E85. The high beams do not work in the normal posistion. They do work in the flash posistion. I can turn the headlights on through my scan tool. The scan tool also shows the stalk working properly. I have deleted all codes and faults. I have disconnected...

    Hi forum, Two years ago, I had a nice 3000+ miles trip in the Z4, from Viña del Mar, Chile to Punta del Este, Uruguay. Of course, we had several nice stops and enjoyed each town we visited in our way to the destination. This year, I'm getting ready for something similar but I'd like to change...

    The following attachment is a document authored by Shipkiller. I used and saved it long ago before the Shipkiller website going down. It is one of the best write-ups I have seen to date on how to remove the convertible top from a Z4 and replace its Hydraulic motor with a new one. It also...

    Hi, I have a 2005 E85 Z4. I always had a problem with my passenger side headlight fogging up and remain that way for months at a time. After the recent rain, my passenger side headlight fogged up really badly. I took it out to fix it and realized there was at least a quarter of water has...
  9. BMW Coding and Programming
    Just bought a 2006 BMW z4 3.0i (E85 chassis) and I am thinking of doing some coding with NCS Expert. Does anyone know where there is a good cheat sheet showing all the modules, coding options, etc... Thanks.

    Anyone able to find a newer model z4 OEM replacement stereo to fit in a 2007? One that includes Bluetooth and SiriusXM? I know that i can get an aftermarket with all the installation parts and fitted panel, but was hoping to find something that looks more like it was meant to be there from...
  11. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    So I picked up an 03 Z4 Roadster (manual) recently at a bargain price but with one caveat - it won't start. Since I did not buy it directly from the owner of the car I do not have any history as to what the hell happened. So before I go into details, the main problem is that when I turn the...

    Hello, New to the forum, but will be around more as I'm a new owner of the Z4M- what a great car! After a track day I needed to replace rotors and pads. This weekend I replaced with stock rotors and Stop Tech sport pads following instructions on Pelican Parts- although they seem like every...
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So I'm taking my car next week to get a JB4 installed along with a COBB chargepipe. I installed a Vanguard catback exhaust with VRSF catless downpipes last year. Planning on upgrading my FMIC to a 5" stepped from VRSF as well but not until the Spring time (unless the weather in NY stays...
  15. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Just bought a used 2007 bmw z4, with the xenon headlight system. Both angel eyes dont work and just had one side go out. Looking ti buy a new set. Does anyone happen to have a place where you can buy blacked out xenon headlights?
  16. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    2005 E85 Z4 3.0. 47000 miles. A brand new problem: multiple warning lights come on sometimes. It's not always the same lights. The RPMs drop and the car seems to stall momentarily. It then rights itself and on we go. No diagnostics have yet been run. Any ideas ???? Thanks
  17. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hello Bimmerfest community, First time posting here, although I've definitely benefited in the past by reaching helpful posts via google searches. I've had my 2003 Z4 3.0 6-speed since 2010 and I've put ~63K miles on it since (now it's at approx 122K miles). I was on the brink of selling it...

  19. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Recently the "Service Engine Soon" warning light came on my 2003 BMW Z4 (E85) 3.0i (45K miles) Using my ODB2 reader found out there are 2 error codes P0365 and P1339. I was able to find details regarding P0365 - faulty Camshaft Position Sensor "B" Circuit. I guess this is the exhaust side...
  20. Wheels and Tires
    I have a set of OEM wheels for the 2006 Z4M E85 roadster. I never used them and I think the previous owner used them only for a little while. He changed over to aftermarket wheels and I bought the car like that and never used the OEM wheels. He also mentioned that he got the wheels refinished...
