About BMW Z4

The first-generation BMW Z4 was known as the E85 in roadster form and E86 in coupé form.It was designed by Danish BMW-designer Anders Warming.

The Z4’s design addressed many criticisms of the preceding Z3; and was larger and featured a significantly stiffer chassis. The Z4 was initially only available as a roadster, but a coupé version was officially launched in 2006. The last model rolled off the assembly line on 27 August 2008 at the Spartanburg plant.

The second-generation Z4 was announced on 13 December 2008 and debuted at the 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit the following month. It is the first Z Series model to use a retractable hardtop and meant that there were no longer separate roadster and coupé versions of the car.The top is made of a two-piece lightweight aluminium shell and takes 20 seconds to operate. Manufacturing was moved from Spartanburg, United States to Regensburg, Germany.

The G29 Z4 is the third and current generation Z4 and was unveiled at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on 23 August, 2018 It reuses the soft-top convertible roof found on the E85 Z4 instead of a retractable hardtop. The G29 Z4 also shares its platform with the fifth generation Toyota Supra.

The color of the tires represents the status of the tires and the system. TPM takes into account that tire pressures change while the vehicle is being driven. The tire pressures do not need to be corrected unless the TPM instructs you to do so by means of color indicators.

#Green: The tire inflation pressure corresponds to the established target value. “TPM active” appears
on the Control Display.
#One Wheel Yellow: There is a flat tire or substantial loss of tire pressure in the indicated tire. A
message appears on the Control Display.
#All Wheels Yellow: There is a flat tire or substantial loss of tire pressure in several tires. A message
appears on the Control Display.
#Gray: The system cannot detect a puncture. Possible reasons for this:
  • TPM is being reset.
