RE: My Journey to a Z4 Coupe
Thanks Guys
although I do want to change the door step sills and wrap the interior bits, aesthetic upgrades will be put on hold for now.
I will rather focus on mechanical as the only thing ive done in my ownership is an oil change.

My list below.
1) cooling system maintenance, I have bought a new OEM water pump and coolant, I jest need a thermostat before work can be carried out.
2) Vanos solenoid clean or replace?
3) New spark plugs
4) fuel and air filter
5) although I only did about 4000km since my last oil service , I will change the oil out again as its been a full year

not sure if I should change out the oxygen/heat sensors?

RE: My Journey to a Z4 Coupe
So Finally the big ticket item...
as preventative maintenance and the only blemish the N52 has is water pump failure after 150,000km. I am lucky I'm on 178000km and no issues but ever since I bought the car this was on my to do list.
There were cheaper options but I opted for OEM parts only, mechy says he will also scan the car after and will only change sensors if necessary.
Air Filter and plugs will also be changed.
Coincidence I have done exactly 4000km since 19/09/2017 , this was also the last oil service done, but since a year has gone by I have booked it in at BMW Sandton for next week.
car will be in tip top mechanical condition after this.

New to do list.
1) New Wiper blades
2) Bottle of Ceretec after oil change
3) Annual Alignment
4) Front bumper to be re-sprayed for the 3rd time
5) Decat
6) M Steering wheel (if I can find one)
7) Selected Interior trim wrap
8) Roof lining to be done in anthracite.

RE: My Journey to a Z4 Coupe
Ok so with these cars getting rarer you have to jump on parts when available.
I was lucky enough to source a Steering wheel from an M Coupe.
I also got the kick plates as mine were quite tired.
few months back I bought a weather strip for the drivers side as I had tear and looked sloppy. also got me some new grab handle covers for the doors.
I was quite busy this weekend...

Some before and after Pics
Quite a transformation Fencelook
