  1. General BMW Questions
    I have come across a 2005 BMW Z4 3.0i with 106k miles with a Premium Package and an automatic transmission. I am in the car business but I am not familiar with this vehicle and whether or not it is of value over the 2.5 etc. Anyone who can offer me up help on this and would be fair and honest...

    I am having an issue with my 08 E85 Z4 3.0si. It cranks over but does not start. I cleaned the mass air flow sensor and it started right up (twice) but 30 mins later it went back to just cranking over and not starting. Could it be that the sensor is bad or maybe the fuel pump (I can hear the...

    My clamp broke when disconnecting from post. It appears to be all one single piece. No idea what it is called or where to find replacement. Advice appreciated!

    Hi all! I'm new to the E89 but heard it's a great community. I've already tried following the steps in the two most popular youtube videos. Verify connection in INPA, code in NCS Expert and coding tool, etc... It seemed to take longer to reappear but it is back. Would love some help...

    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...

    I read somewhere that the Z4 family is noteworthy for it's quality and low repair record. This, of course, does not reflect the issue of the top motor. I wonder what everyone thinks about this. I have a 2.5 in Florida and a 3.0 in Maine. Both have been well maintained and have required only...

    Hi guys! I have a 2012 Z4 35i. I got the wheels stolen and after that I can’t get the TPMS to work. I got new wheels with the sensor installed, they didn’t work. According to a shop I went to the sensors in the wheels were programmed for a 2014. So I got new sensor programmed for this car, they...

    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...

    Hey guys, I have a 2004 Z4. The roof stuggles to open and close. To the point now it works good in the beginning of the season and stops after a month or two all together. This year it won't budge. Latches work fine, and motor is whirring strong. I think it's a hydraulic fluid issue, but...

    I am currently looking at buying a 2007 Z4 3.0si. The VIN is 4USBU53507LX02372. All the sources are pretty close, but wondering what the exact horsepower number is and why the variance? Many links list different Horsepower: 255 https://www.topspeed.com/cars/bmw/2007-bmw-z4-roadster-ar1833.html...

    Hello all, selling my 2007 Z4 M Coupe. Had the car for the last 7 years but now I am traveling too much to justify keeping the car. I used to live in CA but now am right next to Manhattan and it's increasingly harder to get out into the open road when I am in town. An amazing car! They don't...

    2007 Z4 3.0i I cannot get a break with this coolant system.* About 4 months ago an ASE mechanic friend (works mostly on US and Japanese cars/trucks) replaced the Expansion tank because of a very fine crack/leak.* A month later I had another leak and he replaced the thermostat, plastic housing...
