Anyone else have a Z4 Coupe..........?

14 posts in this topic

Here`s mine, in any case. 3.0si Sport, had it a month now, and I`m well-pleased with it.

Power, looks, handling, quality, interior........even the blo*dy fuel consumption`s impressive LOL ! :grin:

Anyway, here`s a couple of (poor) pics:

Lottiefox had one for about 2-3 months from what I recall, but the ride almost killed her so she got shot.

I still think it's a fabulous looking shape.

Friend of mine had a Z4M Coupe for a while. He got raped on depreciation and panicked - got rid at the bottom of the market. Great shame - it was a superb (if flawed) car. My main problem with it was it gave me headaches - however careful I tried to be I tw@tted my head on the roof frame every single fecking time I got out... :uhoh:

Thanks MrMe; and I agree, the looks (as is nearly always the case, I suppose..) are what initially drew me to the car.

As for the ride, yep, shod with the dreaded run-flats, as mine is.......it`s not great, but is certainly liveable-with IMHO. Only time will tell on that one, I suppose.

Once the tyres need changing I`ll be ditching them anyway, so I`ll be better placed then to comment on how the ride should feel ! +++

LOL, I suppose being a bit of a short-a*se (5`9) has its compensations now and again.........

Ditching the run flats as soon as it makes sense seems to be the accepted wisdom. +++

The ride of the Z4M was for me one of its flaws - TOO hard. (I'm guessing if anything it's even harder than the Sport?) And although that M engine gave it epic pull, I just got the feeling that in a normal driver's hands it wouldn't be any quicker point to point than the 3.0i SE tip convertible another friend (known to this place) had.

The Z4M was the same colour as yours encee, with gorgeous dark red leather. It's a very pretty little thing indeed, especially for a Bangle!

Edit - I'm only 5' 8" !! :uhoh:

Yes, I would have to agree there garcon; it was one of the designs that Bangle DID get right. Certainly in my eyes, it`s a beautiful car !

Mine has the red leather also, and a decent smattering of toys; Prof Nav, Bluetooth, etc...and of course the Sport comes with the electrically adjusted M-seats too, nice and warm in the highly anticipated winter that`s coming our way........:grin:

I see a Z4M quite regularly in the same colour my old M3 Cab was - Phoenix Yellow.

I almost bought one a few years back but got worried about mega-depreciation. Ultimately the 6 suffered exactly the same but I'm glad I kept hold because I probably couldn't have lived with the car on a daily basis in M guise. I can see the Z4 in coupe guise becoming a collectors piece in future years.

My dad has had a Z4M Coupe for over 3 years now. He loves it an i enjoy the odd drive of it. However this is his weekend / fun car and we are both agreed that there is no way it coul be used as a daily driver. he was looking at getting rid a few months ago and to downsize to one car. He tried the new X5 40D but couldn't face the boredom of the X or the epreciation of the Z.

Negative things are the ride but what is worse is the noise!!! Its great for a fun 30 minute blast but my ears bleed after any longer. The induction raw is way louder than any M3 ive heard in fact its CSL like maybe louder.

Not really a word I want to use here, but the 3.0si Sport is, no doubt, a bit "softer" (cringe LOL) than the `M` variant, and as such, I`ve found it perfectly accomodating as a daily driver.

Yes, it`s harsher than a normal every-day car, but it DOES do the "sports car" thing like it should, and for that reason alone, there`s always going to be a pay-off.......

I had a 3.0si coupe for an all too brief while (2 months), until my wife decided her back could take no more of it. If she thought the car was painful, it was nothing compared to what I suffered trading it in...:eek:

Enjoy yours!

This was mine (sniff :( )

I was overtaken by a 3.0si (I think) tonight on the A189 and he was really caning it. I was chuntering along at about 70-something and he went past me like I was stood still.

Black with what I think were black wheels too. Certainly looked like black alloys, or they were pitted with brakedust.
