Here is some information that may be related to the Z4 and too close to the ground deal.
I'm leasing a 2004 Z4 currently at 13000 miles. The other day, I started feeling a thumping with the suspension. I took it to a BMW dealer and guess what ... The 4 Rims are bent. You heard that right, 4 rims bent.
I asked the dealer how can 4 rims be bent and he said potholes. Are these alloy rims on the Z4 just soft or is the suspension on the Z4 just not made for potholes in NY and NJ?
Three of the rims can be fixed at about $150 each. The fourth may need replacing a dealer cost of about $450.
Has anyone experience problems with Z4 Rims?

Does anyone have a handle on approximately what the base price will be for the Z4 coupe?
#147 of 255 Advice on Wind Deflectors
Jan 19, 2006 (6:25 am)
Iím looking for advice on the Z4 wind deflectors sold by BMW. BMW sells a mesh wind deflector ($185) and wind deflector w/removable center piece ($373). Iím seeking advice or reviews from anyone who has purchased both of these wind deflectors. Is it really worth paying $373 vs $185? Iím not sure which one to get. Thanks for any help given.

I have the $185 version and it works well keeping the cabin quiet. My only concern to date is the fact the the raising and lowering of the roof rubs against the deflector. There has been some slight wear along the top edges of the deflector. Nothing big, but it is a tight fit.
P.S. I had the dealer install it at purchase.
