possibly this one...
This is shocking!
I have read the thread a few years ago.
What happened to this car? Is it still about?
@Sam87 Not sure
Was a horror story!
I hope whoever bought it knew what he was getting and has fixed it properly and turned it into a track car. I can't see anyone wanting that car for anything else
here is one for sale in SOUTH AFRICA on facebook that a friend sent to me , car is going for 1.1 million south African rands , no 1 of the 65 that came to south Africa , owner is apparently a very wealthy enthusiast. don't have a link but check facebook.
That’s £52k pounds (so people know) plus shipping and transfer fees - plus not seeing the car etc
2005 BMW M3 CSL (E46)
No. 50 of 65 cars showing just 58,221Km; South African car imported to UK in 2016 in superb, unmolested order
Reg No: AW54JWV
Chassis Number: WBSBL96090JC98209
Anybody know the car on here ?
Interesting...I'm not familiar with the differences in the SA cars, but based on mileage, that's a keen estimate. What's that...35-36K miles ? You'd pay £50k+ for a UK car with that mileage.
One of my mates has a CSL in grey. He is always open to serious offers for it.
In his words "it's alright, it ain't all that" which always makes me smile.
PM me if you genuinely want one.
And the rest ! £60k plus more like.
Not so sure. Look at how much the col black series made on collecting cars. That was a SA import and went at notable discount compared to others. Bargain for somebody but U.K. market doesn’t like imports.
Optimistic after the discount required given it’s an import.
Brightwells site notes “slight complication may arise because the vehicle shows as Exported in June 2016, although it has remained in the UK since arrival from South Africa. We have a copy V5C”
Don’t know if I’m reading this right? They don’t have original V5C, only have a copy of the V5C? And the selling party doesn’t have the car registered in their name? In my mind 35-40K still strong dough to pay out with very limited paperwork. But perhaps I am a little to risk averse. Definitely needs someone who knows these cars inside out to carry out a very thorough PPI
I'm selling my csl after 7yrs of ownership so if any one's interested pm me
Just pm'd you
car sold for 38,500 I think. I gave up at a bit below there. The crazy buyers premium of 12%+VAT adding a substantial chunk on top. Collecting Cars auctions definitely hit a spot there. Premium would have been less than half of that price and more money to the seller as they don’t charge anything on that side..
Low miles and good history so somebody got himself a bargain. I didn’t want to go over the limit I had set myself and the wife told me no new cars until the other special one is sold :-(
shame. Market not as crazy bid as some people thought then...
With the auction fees and VAT that puts the car at around 45k, that's the sort of price I was expecting that one to go for.
Yes. Overall decent price. It’s an import and will need to fill in some gaps on documents but super low miles and from the look of it a good history and condition.
so in the pockets of the seller less than 40k.. and buyer pays massive premium. I would have listed it on PH or cutters ;-)
