The launch of the first-generation Z4 consists of the E85 (Roadster) and E86 (Coupe) models. Built with a mind to provide an active alternative to the Porsche Boxster in America, it utilised rear-wheel drive and six-cylinder engines almost throughout the range (although there was a four-cylinder 2.0i version in Europe). Compared to the Z3, the Z4’s body dimensions were larger and its wheelbase was longer and wider. The suspension was also upgraded to be stiffer and the car was equipped with a sport package that firmed up the steering. Some of the Z4’s elements were borrowed from the BMW’s 3 series such as the multilink suspension which was more advanced than the one used for the BMW Z3.
Manufactured in 2004, the Z4 was supplied new to the UK and first registered on the 15th of December that year. Fitted with the 2494cc straight-six engine mated to the desirable five-speed manual transmission and is finished in Blue Metallic with Black interior upholstery and a Grey hood. Having covered just c.74,000 miles (at time of consignment) at the hands of five former keepers, ‘RA54 WYR’ has been retained in current registered ownership since 2016. Offered with a stamped service book displaying nine stamps from BMW, specialists and others, with the Z4 being recently serviced at approximately 73,800 miles (in November 2021) and a current V5C document, the BMW is rated by the vendor as ‘very good’ throughout.
