You can substitute with another coolant, but the manufactors one is recommended for many reasons. Best of all because it has been tested for the heatin BMW engines. Mix it 50/50 with water and I'd reccommend using the bmw coolant to stop overheating and causeing serious damage i.e. gead gasket.

After jump starting 2006 Z4 BMW headlight low beams don't work checked fuses in glove compartment and under hood all seemed to be ok is there a relay, what do i do now


If the lights are switched then the switch controls a rely all lights are switched on bmw. Can use fog lights temporarily. Find rely test with continuity meter when on, disconnect lights first, then turn on lights switch, check for 12v at light bulb terms, if 12v then bulbs bad, if not relay is bad, test with continuity meter, rely should read 0 ohms when lights switched on, infinite open circuit when switched off. If lights work in manual switch pos then solar sensor bad.

What type of battery is required for a bmw z4 3.0 convertible Can you purchase a battery for a BMW z4 at any locat auto parts store


BMW Z4s need a special type of vented battery. The closest alternative to the OEM battery would be the Interstate MPT-H6 which you should be able to purchase from any place carrying Interstate batteries (most places do).

I have a BMW Z4 2003 2.5 with the exhaust emission


The Exhaust Emission Light can come on if the car is driven slowly over short distances.It will not happen on cars driven at speed. A short trip of ten miles at over 3000 revs should reset the warning light,although it may not go out for a couple of days after you have tried it . Hope this helps and saves a bill at the local dealer. JK
