    A few great places to start

    http://www.bimmerboard.com/forums/e85/ Bimmerboard forum for E85 Z4 owners. It's a pretty active and informative community. Membership is always free, and community is open and uncensored. The founder DavidC is pretty open and laidback, as well as being an all round nice guy -- a dedicated BMW enthusiast.

    You can also Google the following:

    BMW Z4 problems
    BMW Z4 recalls
    BMW Z4 service bulletins
    BMW Z4 issues

    One more tip: Just so you don't get confused, there are actually two generations of Z4's. Most people refer to the older 1st gen cars, called E85s (roadsters/convertibles with either a removable hardtop or a folding fabric soft top) or E86s (fixed roof coupes), built from 2002 to 2008. The newer 2nd generation cars are considered to be E89's. These are 2009 to current model year cars, and are all folding metal roof convertibles.

    No major issues short of some ('06-early '07) having loose engine mount bolts.
