Lol.


The one I looked at is still there at £18,000.

I might go in with a silly offer and see what happens.
Thatís nuts. Wrong wheels and grey interior, and a sunroof... at least itís got a proper gearbox. 😁

Tempted to look at this one.

Fundamentally appealing (though I still need to try a manual M3), but with £1500 set aside to right the obvious wrongs and assuming all else is ok, and a decent trader reduction, it might not be too bad.


Just I hate travelling to see obviously crap (once you get up close) cars and wasting my days.

I have a feeling someone else on here may know a bit history about this particular car. The mismatched tyres and depos are definite bargaining point.

Thatís a lovely example. Iím not a fan of the interior but the paintwork looks clean and it is manual and super low miles for the year. And a good service history too.

Big money that though. But to be fair to it a completely different car to anything else on the market CS-wise at the moment.

For £50,000 you could buy a £20k example and spend £20,000 refreshing the entire car and interior (paint and leather etc), and still be £10,000 up with essentially a brand new car in comparison.

The dealer is clearly fishing.




On the £16,995 example, good news if it has a forum member past owner.

I got a Cazana check and it mostly seems honest. Assuming everything checked out with no obvious bloopers and you got it for £14,500 to £15,000 with some cash used to revert it, I think it'd be a good one to use and enjoy but also add potential value too.

It's just the 3hr round trip to go see it.

Yeah easier to just eBay what's on there and find good original bits.

Only issue now I suppose is finding proper original CS wheels, especially fronts?

Or are reps just as strong/light now?

You can still get the fronts from BMW.

Good quality reps are heavier but also stronger from experience.
