Z4 3.0 Si E86 (08) coupe Auto Ruby Black

Post by AnilS » Tue Sep 26, 2023 11:04 am

7 Previous Owners.
Registered 14/5/08 (it will be returned to its 08 plate).
I have owned this vehicle for 4 years but due to lack of use, it is reluctantly up for sale.

This UK car is HPI clear. Please run your own checks for confidence.

MOT until 2nd March 2024.

Mileage is 79,200 miles.

This is not my daily car, so the mileage has stayed low. It is kept on a battery trickle charger to keep everything in tip top condition.
I specifically bought this car as it was a non-smoker’s car and automatic.


This car has virtually every option bar the New England leather and full DSP Hi-Fi (and in no particular order);

• Ruby Black Metallic paint (Individual)
• Beige Oregon Leather
• Xenon headlights (High and low beam) with headlamp intensive wash system
• M Sport 3 stage heated seats that have full electric adjustment. Driver’s side has 3 memory positions
• M Sport multi-function steering wheel
• Full Professional pack including integrated Bluetooth (with voice control) and Satellite Navigation system Professional with BMW assist
• Full Remote central locking with window up/down access on fob
• Front electric windows (one shot)
• MV2 18” alloy wheels (with locking wheel bolts)
• Fire extinguisher (in the boot)
• Original (unused) first aid kit
• Original beige car mats plus original black ones as I didn’t want to dirty the beige ones. Both sets included in the sale
• Tool kit and pouch in the boot
• Cruise Control
• Auto Climate Control
• Trip computer
• Rear Parking Sensors
• Automatic anti-glare interior rear view mirror
• Professional Hi-Fi speaker system including 10 speakers (Subs are behind the seats). Lovely, powerful sound
• Alarm and Immobiliser
• Sport spec includes Anthracite headlining, and M Sport decals on Sports (Multi-function) steering wheel.
• Auto lights and wipers
• Sports suspension
• Front and rear fog lights
• Front and side airbags
• Traction control (DSC)
• Piano Black facia and centre console
• Dynamic driving control (Sport Mode)
• Isofix-System on passenger seat with airbag deactivation
• Aux in (more of that later)
• Full book pack
• Exterior Mirror Pack includes Heated and folding door mirrors. Heated windscreen washer jets
• Storage Pack - Cup holders and storage nets
• Smokers Pack


The car is 15 year old so it would be no surprise that it has the odd mark and stone chips, commensurate with age, especially on the front bumper.

That said, I do take pride on the appearance and presentation of my cars.

The front and rear number plate holders are still present from the supplying dealer, as the rear window sticker (Parkway).


Interior is in excellent condition.
Air conditioning (Auto Climate control) blows ice cold.
The interior is fully intact. The leather is nourished every few months (Gliptone products)


Engine runs beautifully and without fault.
The 6-speed automatic transmission is very smooth and has the flexibility of flappy paddles should you wish to drive it more “manually”.

Genuine 18” Style 135M MV2 Alloy wheels are pristine, having been recently refurbished.
There is not a mark on them

All 4 tyres are Vredstein Ultrac Vorti in the correct fitting (non-run flats so 2 x foam cans are in the boot). I estimate that these have done less than 2K miles and are in perfect condition. Low miles as I had the 19” CSLs for most of the time.

The car tracks straight and true.

Brakes work excellently.

The car has spent virtually all its service life with BMW. Since my ownership, I have used the well-respected Independent BMW specialist, NCB Auto Kraft thereafter for any maintenance.

I have some paperwork/invoices/MOTs from the previous owners and all paperwork in my ownership. The previous owner bought this from BMW Sytner (Solihull) which still carried a BMW extended warranty. This has now lapsed.

The car has been serviced according its on-board service indicator for all services and brake fluid changes. It has also had a (non-required) oil changes.

All handbooks/manuals are present in the 2 x BMW leather wallets. Full book pack.

Service book is fully stamped and reads as the following;

Date Mileage Type Where

20/07/10 18654 Oil Service/Brake Fluid/Microfilter BMW Scotthall
08/11/11 26672 Oil Service BMW Scotthall
06/06/12 36595 Oil service/Insp 1/Brake/Microfilter BMW Salisbury
25/05/13 49634 Oil service/Insp 2 BMW Salisbury
21/10/15 56371 Oil service/Brake/Microfilter BMW Sytner
09/10/17 67511 Insp1/Brake fluid BMW Sytner
09/10/19 75051 Oil service/Air cleaner element NCB Autokraft
21/09/22 78802 Oil and filter change NCB Autokraft

In my ownership

25/08/20 76408 O/S front brake caliper replaced NCB Autokraft
07/04/21 77269 Oil filter housing seal NCB Autokraft
12/07/21 77603 ABS Unit refurbed NCB Autokraft
22/05/23 79120 Sump gasket seal NCB Autokraft


Please check online by putting the current number plate (P5ANL). I can provide the VIN if required.


• Black Shiny M Front Grille Salberk (Germany). Negotiable in the sale. Original included in the sale
• Pure Highway Drive Digital In-Car DAB Digital Radio & Audio Adaptor Kit. Plugged into the AUX in to allow DAB radio with USB and aux, without removing the functionality of the Sat Nav and allows the steering wheel controls to still operate. You obviously still have use of the original CD player and radio, but having your music on a memory stick is great and convenient. Negotiable in the sale
• Front dash-cam (Mini 0805) professionally fitted (hard wired). Micro SD card will be reformatted and included in the sale.

I have some OEM second-hand parts too. Two front springs and one rear spring, also included in the sale if the asking price is met.

Both original remote keys plus valet key are present and working.

The car is detailed regularly and will be done so, prior to sale. The pictures will speak for themselves. If you require further pictures of specific areas, please ask.

Please PM me for any further questions you have, in case I have missed something and I will gladly oblige.

As you can appreciate, this vehicle is one of the most comprehensively optioned on the market.

Full test drive available (subject to insurance) and full inspection is welcome and encouraged.

I’m based in Worcetershire (B61).

I am asking £12000 or very close offers.

Thanks Guys.

Update. Drove it for the first time in a while and it was very smooth. However, a rear PDC sensor must be playing up as it gave a single long tone. Its intermittent as I tried reversing again and it was fine (maybe because it was detailed and jet washed. I'm not sure).
