I have for sale a 2007 BMW Z4 M Coupe.
This is a really rare car with only about 1800 built between the years of 2006 and 2008.
They took the E46 M3 Motor (S54 3.2L Inline 6, 338 Horsepower, 8000 RPM Redline) and mated it to the Z4, while also beefing up the suspension to be a good track performer.
In some ways this is one of the last old school sports cars as it has a manual 6 speed gearbox, hydraulic steering, and is rear wheel drive. These are 3 things coupled with the small amount of these produced has translated into these Z4 M Coupes holding their value extremely well over the years.
Ok so enough about the general Z4 M Coupe and let's talk more about mine and why it's for sale so cheap.
I bought this Z4 M Coupe from Copart last year. It had (and still has) dents all over the exterior panels from a hail storm in Colorado. At this exact time I had just sold my Nissan GTR and was hoping to eventually buy a super car in late 2019 so I thought this would be a fun project car while i saved up for the next big purchase. At first i made a lot of progress fixing parts on the car and sourcing some parts, but I ended up finding a great deal on a Porsche 911 I had been drooling over and bought it. After buying the 911, the spot i had in my garage to work on this Z4 M Coupe was taken and all work progress on this car halted.
Fast forward 4 months later and I realized that realistically i'm probably never going to get the work done on this Z4 M Coupe and i don't have the motivation to drive it as much either now that i have the 911, which is extremely similar (RWD, 2 seater etc). It's time to cut ties with this Z4 M Coupe and let someone that has the time and motivation take over where i left off.
Exterior Color: Silver
Interior Color: Black Leather
Title: Clear (not salvage title despite the hail damage)
Run & Drive: Yes
Registration: Current (California) - no smog problems and I'll have it smogged for the buyer of course again as required by California law.
Interior Condition: I'd say about 7/10.
Exterior Condition: Probably a 4/10. The paint itself is pretty good but tons of dents from the hail storm and some lower damage to front bumper as well as a fairly large scratch on drivers door.
Oil: I just paid for an oil change within the past 50 miles of driving it
Radiator Coolant: Just paid for a radiator flush/new coolant 50 miles ago at same time as oil change.
Tires: I believe they are reasonable but the rear right loses air / slow leak. That tire may need to be replaced.
Brakes: they stop fine, no squeaks, but have some visible rust in the drilled parts of the rotors (likely from sitting on copart lot for so long).
Dents: I purchased a lot of tools for PDR (Paintless Dent Removal) as i had been advised by a lot of people that doing that work isn't extremely hard but is just time consuming. I will of course include all these tools in the sale if you want them. It includes special glues and tools for pulling the dents out, special hammers, etc.
I currently have some of the interior apart because I was in the process of removing the roof panel and replacing it with one i bought from a Zpost forum member. So obviously the replacement roof panel will be included in the sale as well as all the interior pieces. I was planning to cast carbon fiber fabric in resin over the roof panel to give it a carbon fiber roof, but did not finish that part of the project. I can of course include the fabric and resin if you want to do it.
I think that when the tractor at copart picked up the car with the forks that it did some undercarriage damage. Some of the panels were mangled and the front bumper lip has some major wear/damage to the bottom of the lip.
I did purchase some of the replacement under panels that are included but i think a few other plastic under carriage panels may still need to be sourced.
The car currently does overheat when driven for about 20-30minutes straight. I've only driven it more than 20 minutes once when i realized the problem and pulled over to let it cool off. It appears the radiator fans are not spinning so it's very possible that the fans are either unplugged or need to be replaced.
I'm probably forgetting a bunch of details but feel free to call, text, or message.
Please don't lowball. I just listed this car and I think my price is good considering what it can sell for once the work is done.
