About to buy this Z4 off a friend; is it worth it?

About to buy this Z4 off a friend; is it worth it?

I'm about to buy my friends Z4 and want to know if it is a good price and if there is anything I should be aware of.

I currently own a 523i Touring (1999 model), in past had a 7 series from 1997.

This sort of roadster is new for me so need a bit of advice/tips from Z4 owner/drivers.

The car is a mint/pristine Titanium Silver 2003 model Z4. It is the 3 litre automatic model, but it has had an M-Conversion done (whatever that is?); has an M-Power badge on back and M-Power on steering wheel.

It was top of range model in 2003 with every possible option box checked i.e. heated front seats, upgraded hi-fi, DVD TV, sat nav, rear spoiler, titanium split alloys, teletext etc.

It has only done 36,000 miles with full BMW service history.

The owner is a friend of mine and he is really fussy about his cars, he keeps them pristine and keeps them immaculately.

I'd like to know what you guys think this car is worth before letting you know how much I am going to be buying it for.

Also I'm a bit confused about the M power thing, is there an official UK BMW Dealer M Power conversion, what does it cost, what do they do?

Here is a link to a page I've put up so you can see the pictures of it.

In the USA, you could expect that car to go for between $23,000 and $27,000.

Ask your friend (and a BMW dealership) about the m-power conversion, as it may just be a couple of badges he put on it

I wish I could help with a price estimate, but a brand new Z4 here starts at around $35k, so any pricing we give you will not translate in the UK.
