    Did one of you guys post the total production range of z4M/C models / VINs at one time?
    or was that at Roadfly?

    Could you please repost here?

    So i think I am reading this spreadsheet correctly.
    Between 06-08 there were only 1814 M coupes ever made for the US?
    Is this correct? If it is true I just realized why it has been so hard for me to find the perfect one that hasn't been on salted roads.

    Sounds about right.

    A key thing to keep in mind regarding such a low production number is that the Z4 E86 Coupe/M-Coupe had an extremely short production run, as it was released after the middle of the E85 first-generation Z4's lifecycle before the current second-generation Z4 model was released.

    Indeed, according to realoem.com, the initial 2005 models were only produced for a single month in October 2005! Starting with the November 2005 production run, those were 2006 models.

    The first-generation Z4 coupes were definitely not high volume sellers.

    Loving the Z4 M coupe

    It's not hard to understand! I am convinced the Z4 coupe platform is the best-handling chassis BMW ever put together.

    The best part is that they were languishing in the showrooms (as were the Z4 M roadsters); with a buyers' market, you could get, like, $20,000 off the MSRP! Even after tax, license, and registration fees, the total on my CPO roadster---it had never been sold, but they CPOed it anyway, just to sweeten the deal---was under Forty Large.

    And the coupes were harder to peddle than the roadsters! I'd bet there's more than one happy coupe owner who got it for mid-thirties money.

    I picked up my 2008 MC in Feb. Manufactured in March of 2008, placed in service in May of 2008. When I bought it in Feb of 2010 it only had 4100 miles on it. Initial asking price was $42K. We settled and the deal was done for mid $34K.

    Not bad for a car with only 4k miles.

    I did have to fly to TX to drive it home. :D

    Took delivery of my "new" 2008 M coupe on 2/21. 1 of 2 of all Z4 M cars produced in this color combo: Space Gray w/ Light Sepang Bronze Ext. interior. Love it, love it, love it! Poor '03 M3 is getting neglected.
    Thanks to you guys that pointed me to the production info! Very informative.
