IMPORTANT: the Z4M Coupe was subject of an Ebay auction on March 2015, and subsequently sold on early April 2015.
This website is kept online strictly for historical reasons.

The table below resumes the most important maintenance and service operations performed on this Z4M Coupe, until now.
Although only the inspections and oil services performed by the first owner are documented, there is solid evidence that he also did other maintenance work, that I don't have direct information on. For example, the DOT and condition of the rear Continental tires clearly show that they were replaced sometime in 2010.

On the other hand, I kept a strict log of all the maintenance and service I performed. That's why you will see so few entries before 2011, and so many after that.
