2008 BMW Z4

Up for sale is my rare Auto Bavaria supplied 2004 BMW Z4 Convertible.

Definitely still a head turner despite being more than 10 years old. The bodywork is in fantastic condition with newly repainted titan silver colour in sublime clarity. The car looks stunning, no dings or even scratches. The car is always parked under the roof (I live in a condo and have a reserved parking lot at work). The interior is in good condition with everything being stock standard down to the 17” standard rims which were repainted black to give it an aggresive look.

This is a very reliable BMW Z4 (early gen), even with it being convertible. The black soft-top roof is in great condition, it went through a minor refurbishment at the end of last year - preventive maintenance done to have the hydraulic pump relocated to the rear boot. It is hard to argue with a car that feels this nimble while planted. It is powered by a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated (NA) engine which pushes out 189 hp and 245 Nm of torque and manages a seven second flat sprint to 100km/h. With all that performance, driven sedately it’ll return a tried and tested combined fuel consumption from 7.7 to 10.5 L/100km.

Its a true-to-form convertible and you get two full seats (no children allowed here, just you and your special someone). The resulting airiness emphasizes this BMW’s generously spaced interior and puts driver and passenger at ease while being a drop-the-top. The dash design is pleasant and ergonomically perfect with a no nonsense setup - why do we need screens everywhere, we’re all already glued to our phones. Tasteful dark soft touch plastic trim and bits of silver work well together and the instruments, stacked Porsche style, are classy and legible. I found my perfect driving position with the electronically adjustable steering and seats.

Long drives are made effortlessly with this BMW’s ability to cover big miles with ease despite being a short wheelbase car. I barely feel the highway expansion joints and the car remained relatively flat even in the bigger corners; no boat like wallowing here.

Mileage might go up slightly with occasional use during the weekends.

Reason for sale: upgrading to Porsche 718 Cayman.
