New (old) Z4 owner

I had a 2003 2.5i Z4 for 4 years. Sold it about a year ago due to other needs. I have been missing the Z4 and was looking at buying a 2007, then I sat in a 2009 and I just couldnt buy the older style anymore, it seemed inferior in all ways.

The new Z4 is better looking IMOP
The interior is much more refined and more like a luxury car
The top gives you the choice of a coupe or a convertible, and how it stows is pretty cool

The stereo is better, I can use Mp3 CDs or even a memory stick
Some told me I should drive the 35i and I would never look back. I drove the 30i and It had more power then I would ever need. I don't plan on driving the track, so street performance is all I needed

I decided I wanted the Deep Sea Blue with the Tan Seats

I searched across the country and found the best deal in Houston on a 2009 30i sdrive with 14 months left on the Manufacturers warranty PLUS the certified warranty

I flew down to Houston and drove it the 1100 miles home and I still very jazzed about it. This along with my Land Cruiser gives me the perfect set of toys for what I want to do.

The seats are much more comfortable. The ride seems better and the power is much better.

I like the option for a memory stick or ipod. After putting in a memory stick, I wonder why waste the expense of an ipod. I had to check back and make sure the memory stick powered down

This is a much better vehicle then the 2003 I had. I like the fact it's more luxurious as well as better performing.

Congrats on Z4 purchase! That's the headlight pop washer if your car is equipped with Cold Weather Package. If not, then it's just a cover you can get here: Part # 51117231092

I played with the Memory stick and put all the songs at the root directory and works great on Random. No need for an ipod

I do have some questions. Looking at my Vin I have the following two options

S693A Preparation BMW satellite radio
S697A Area-Code 1 for DVD

That makes me think it's pre-wired for Sat Radio and maybe a DVD/CD Changer. I only saw an option for a CDchanger. I don't have NAV or iDrive so what is the DVD region code 1 (for us) option on the VIN. Is there any information on whats pre-wired for this and where the connectors are.

From a search I see its pre-wired to add the GPS with clear instructions and also pre-wired for the alarm.


I also would like to know if there is an option to add the capability to control the roof with the remote. That would be a nice option to add if its easy and I would like to be able to do this myself if possible
