Used BMW Z4 Coupe (2006 - 2008) Costs

The addition of a coupe to the Z4 line-up broadened the appeal of the already popular model. BMW describes it as a 'pocket GT' and the Z4 has been designed to feel ‘shrink-wrapped’ around its occupants to create a high-performance and long-distance car.

Running costs

The Z4 is not as expensive to run as you'd imagine and the 3.0-litre engine is capable of 33mpg but servicing, parts and the run flat tyres aren't particularly cheap. On the plus side BMW offers a servicing package on new cars called Service Inclusive whereby one up front payment covers all servicing costs for five years or 60,000 miles (whichever comes first).

The good news is that this can be passed on when selling.
