2005 BMW Z4 2.2i SE

** NOTE: This auction has now been extended **


  • Fitted with the desirable “Sport Package”
  • Low mileage example
  • Excellent condition & well cared for
  • Ready to be enjoyed

The Appeal

Following in the wake of the rather successful Z3, the first generation of Z4 certainly had big shoes to fill. Fortunately, the Z4 met its aspirations, providing a much larger, more rigid, and better-equipped platform than its older brother.

This particular Z4 takes these improvements one step further, thanks to the use of its optional “Sport Package” extras. These include larger 18” alloys and stiffer suspension, along with a subtle drop in ride height for further handling improvements and styling.

The vehicle has also seemingly been well cared for over the years too, and now presents itself in great condition, ready to be enjoyed by the next lucky owner.

The safest way to buy a classic car online

Car & Classic's secure payment system protects buyers and sellers. At the end of the auction, the winning bidder transfers payment into a third-party escrow account.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
