What's the best used BMW Z4 to buy?

I am considering buying a BMW Z4 and my budget is £12000 - which models would you recommend keeping in mind running costs? And what age of vehicle could I expect for the money? Also should I be overly concerned about the metal folding roof?

The sDrive18i will probably be quick enough and is the most efficient model. Alternatively, consider the 20i - it uses the same 2.0-litre twin-turbo petrol engine with a bit more power. Your budget should get a 2014 or 2015 car with low miles. Make sure the roof operates correctly but we've not had any issues reported.
