    Afternoon all,
    Since selling my e92m a few weeks back I have been looking at a new toy
    I have always loved the look of the z4mc and am very tempted, though never driven one
    If I potentially like it as much as I Hope then it would be a long term keeper
    Have a budget up to 20k
    What do people think ?

    Thanks:)

    £20,000 should get you a sub 60,000 mile Z4MC with a decent number of owners.

    Up the budget to £22-25,000 and you could be looking at low mileage minters (ie sub 40,000 miles) with low owners.

    Prices for higher mileage cars have dropped, a 100,000 mile Z4MC can be had for about £12/13,000, however good examples are still holding their money.

    I don't see them dropping any further, but don't see them going up in the near future either.

    E86 Z4s are great cars, just note that they are an acquired taste, and due to them being 2 seaters (and a little bit under the radar) they can take quite a bit of time to sell.

    I don't want to formulate your opinion before you drive one, but note that the ride will be firmer than that of your former E92 M3, and the seating position may take some getting used to as you practically sit on the rear wheels of the car.

    Best place to look would be the Buy and Sell section of the Z4 Forum.

    Also refer to their M Market Watch thread, where forum members often post non forum cars for sale which are worth discussion.

    Happy hunting :thumbsup:

    Yes the ride is firm but it's a mega car to drive and it's just one of those cars where you say "They don't make them like this anymore"
    £20k is a reasonable budget for a 60k mile car... if you got a low mileage car then you wouldn't want to use it!:p

    I’ve always had a soft spot for the Z4MC, some years ago I very nearly chopped the Exige in for one to turn into a Track car. I do still have that itch of buying one and sticking the S65 V8 in it, that would be a winning combo! :drool:

    Always wanted a Z4MC but couldn't justify the price they command. I'd want a little more practicality (if needed) and more car for my money. Great cars though, they're like smaller versions of an E63 M6.

    Sold mine a few years back, great car for a Sunday morning blast but long distances or touring can become tiresome, ideally a second car for fun. Very hard ride can be improved by aftermarket springs apparently, small and pretty cramped if your over 6ft. The good bits - great handling, superb performance, screaming engine sound and those drop dead looks. Had mine 6 years and all that went wrong was a rubber vacuum hose and countless o2 sensors due to stop/start driving. Back to basics mentality with no colour screens and all that s**t. A drivers car for sure.
