Thanks M!!
I found the rubber stops you mentioned. See attached picture. The second picture shows the problem I had where the roof was too close to the rear deck. Its really weird that my roof has a dip like that on the underside btw. Anyhow, by adjusting the lower rubber stops on each side I managed to solve the problem. Now there is no longer contact between the roof and the rear deck metal part.

Little known facts about BMW: 1) The N54 is still in production and used in the current Z4 35i and 35is. 2) In a Z4 you can get sport+ steering combined with normal suspension etc by selecting DSC=off. (Update: DSC=off also offers sports steering in the M135i) 3) All Z4s with 19" wheels are still only offered with the worst performing OEM tires ever sold with a DCT equipped BMW (Potenza RE 050 RFT).
