systems
In contrast to the descriptions in the Owner's
Manual for the BMW Z4, your BMW Z4 M Roadster/Z4 M Coupe does not feature Dynamic
Traction Control DTC.
Dynamic Stability Control DSC
DSC prevents slip at the drive wheels while
starting off and accelerating the vehicle. DSC
also recognizes unstable vehicle conditions,
such as fishtailing or nose-diving. In these
cases, and subject to physical limits, DSC helps
to keep the vehicle on a steady course by
reducing engine speed and by applying brakes
at individual wheels.
The laws of physics cannot be repealed
even with DSC. It will always be the
driver's responsibility to drive in a manner that
matches road conditions. Therefore, do not
limit the additional safety margin by practicing
risky driving.<
Deactivating DSC
Activating DSC
Press the button briefly; the indicator lamp goes
out in the instrument cluster.
Checking
The indicator lamp flashes:
DSC controls the drive forces and
brake forces.
The indicator lamp is lit:
DSC is deactivated.
Flat Tire Monitor FTM
In contrast to the descriptions in the Owner's
Manual for the BMW Z4, your BMW Z4 M Roadster/Z4 M Coupe is not equipped with Run Flat
tires. You should therefore observe the following when you receive a flat tire warning.
Flat tire warning
The warning lamp in the instrument
cluster lights up in red. A signal also
sounds. There is a flat tire or substantial
loss of tire pressure.
1. Reduce speed and pull the vehicle over
carefully. Avoid strong braking and steering
maneuvers.
2. Determine which tire is damaged. To do
this, check the tire inflation pressure using
the M Mobility System, refer to Restoring
tire inflation pressure on page 33.
3. Use the M Mobility System to repair the flat
tire, refer to page 31.
Press the button; the DSC indicator lamp in the
instrument cluster lights up. No more interventions to increase stability and forward momentum are carried out.
To enhance vehicle stability, reactivate DSC as
soon as possible.
Power steering
In contrast to the descriptions in the Owner's
Manual for the BMW Z4, your BMW Z4 M Roadster/Z4 M Coupe is equipped with hydraulic
power steering.

Break-in procedures
In contrast to the descriptions in the Owner's
Manual for the BMW Z4, please take note of the
following differences for your BMW Z4 M Roadster/Z4 M Coupe.
Always obey all official speed limits.
Engine and differential
Up to 1,200 miles/2,000 km
Drive at varying engine and road speeds, but do
not exceed 5,500 rpm or 100 mph/170 km/h.
Strictly avoid depressing the accelerator pedal
to full-throttle position.
After the breaking-in inspection at 1,200 miles/
2,000 km, engine or road speeds can be gradually increased.
Transmission
Driving notes
Ground clearance
The front spoiler greatly restricts the
vehicle's ground clearance. Make sure
that your BMW always has sufficient ground
clearance, e.g. when entering underground
garage complexes or driving over the edge of a
curb; otherwise the front spoiler could be damaged.<
Braking safely
In contrast to the descriptions in the Owner's
Manual for the BMW Z4, your BMW Z4 M Roadster/Z4 M Coupe is equipped with perforated
brake discs.
In certain braking situations, operation of the
perforated brake discs can cause noise; however, this does not affect the performance and
operating safety of the brakes.
The function of the transmission reaches its
optimal level only after driving a distance of
approx. 300 miles/500 km. Do not exceed
engine speeds of 5,500 rpm during this time.
After replacing components
The same break-in procedures should be
observed if any of the components mentioned
above have to be renewed in the course of the
vehicle's operating life.

To repair a flat tire with the M Mobility System,
proceed as follows:
Immediately drive approx. 2 miles/3 km so that
the sealant is evenly distributed in the tire.
> Fill sealant into wheel
Do not exceed a speed of 35 mph or
60 km/h. Do not drive slower than 12 mph
or 20 km/h if possible.<
Filling sealant into wheel
Strictly adhere to the specified order, otherwise highly pressurized sealant could
escape.<
1. Shake sealant bottle.
2. Screw hose 9 onto connection of sealant
bottle.
3. Unscrew and remove dust cap from valve of
defective wheel and screw filler hose 2 of
sealant bottle onto valve.
4. Insert sealant bottle on compressor housing so that the bottle is in an upright position.
Restoring tire inflation pressure
1. After approx. 2 miles/3 km, pull over at a
suitable location.
2. Screw compressor hose 9 directly onto tire
valve.
3. Insert connector 3 into cigarette lighter
socket inside the vehicle.
4. Correct tire inflation pressure to 29 psi/
200 kPa. With the ignition switched on:
> To increase inflation pressure: switch on
the compressor, position I. Switch off
the device briefly to check the tire's current inflation pressure.
Do not allow the compressor to run
for more than 10 minutes, otherwise
the device will overheat and may be damaged.<
> To reduce inflation pressure: press button 8.
5. Make sure that the device is switched off,
position 0.
6. Insert connector 3 into cigarette lighter
socket inside the vehicle.
7. With the ignition switched on:
Switch on the device and allow it to run for
approx. 3 minutes to fill the wheel with sealant. It is not important what inflation pressure the tire has after this.
Controls
> Restore tire inflation pressure
if the inflation pressure is not maintained,
drive the vehicle again, refer to Distributing sealant. Then repeat steps 1 to 4 once.
Using the M Mobility System can be ineffective
with tire punctures larger than approx. 1/6 in/
4 mm. Please contact the nearest BMW Center
or a workshop that works according to BMW
repair procedures with correspondingly trained
personnel if the tire cannot be made ready for
driving with the M Mobility System.<
