Should I buy a 2008 BMW Z4?

Asked by Dec 11, 2012 at 04:57 PM about the 2008 BMW Z4 3.0si Roadster

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am planning to purchase in the spring (when I start receiving my Social Security checks) a 2008 BMW Z4
roadster.  I haven't begun shopping yet.  It must be a 2008 because the Credit Union won't finance anything
older and I wish to pay it off if 3 years.  I am told my lots of the guys to beware because of expected
maintenance problems with BMW of that era.  Would you advise me of probable maintenace issues to expect.  
As I live in a small town in WV, maintenance and repairs could be an issue in my deciding whether to buy or
not.  Thanks.  Charlie

Don't know if you already made your choice, but I have a 2008 Z4 also - just love it. If you keep up the maintenance (oil changes and servicing) no real issue - one alignment in the last few years.

I am a sports car lover I've had a 2006 Z4 & 2009 Z4 I favor the older models with the cloth top that's the look of a convertible. My autos are maintained at the dealership they run real well and perform in that manner. I've come from XKE sports cars unreliable, but great looks. I am enjoying dependability now and I sure can get use to it.
