    Comp pack with 19” wheels is a real delight to be honest, but a non comp pack with some mods and software will be pretty much the same car. All depends where you want to spend your money really - comp pack or non comp and some mods.

    As has been said, F80 prices seem to have gone up a fair bit of late, so maybe older would be better and then make some additions to it.

    My non-comp M3 was a bit killy - and that was before I put PS4Ss on it.

    Full BMWSH or "dealership" history, I'd begin with that before even looking at anything else.

    The amount of cars I had enquired about before I bought mine all had either full dealership history or full service history, none at a main dealer.

    Same car, s/he's owned it just 10 months.
    The alloy wheel company used, is near to me ; hear good things about it for what that's worth.

    Car's with the dealership though, as its front appears on an image capture on google dated October. There are no other cars that color in their showroom.

    If a buy a standard model what mods would I have to do to get it to handle like a comp pack (but with 19 inch wheels) - is there a standard suspension kit people stick on or something? Thanks

    Springs, ARB and software would do it I guess. If you wanted black grills etc and some trim, then all bar the seats and seatbelts; which can be done but at a price obviously, then you are about there I think.

    Sorry to hijack the thread briefly but i've seen this mentioned on a couple of F8X threads now, is this strictly for newer cars (18 onward) or across the entire generation?

    Following from that, with the G8X gen M3/4 arriving in February next year which everyone's anticipating will drive F8X prices down further, does this apply so much at the lower end of the used market (> £32,000)?

    All cars have gone up due to lack of supply, drive around some of the dealers and their forecourts are bare. My F-Type went up over £5k in the summer, even my mates 2015 Corsa has gone up £500 in the last few months.

    thank you :)

    What makes you think it has? How would I check any car to be sure?


    I was wondering the same - I think this time next year a car up at 38k they will be around £9K cheaper than today. £6-8k normal depreciation and then the rest because of a new model coming out?

    Im guessing its only me that prefers how non comps drive to comp packs?

    Im old and fat,that might have something to do with it but i find the suspension compliance on a comp with 20's poor on our roads.

    Looking at the history behind one of it's private plates took me to a reference and picture of the car (albeit without plates, but it looked the same) photographed at a performance garage in Cardiff.

    The accompanying spiel was all about stage 2 and a higher power output.

    BMW dealers seem pretty cute at spotting maps, maybe make a condition of sale an inspection? I'm sure the expertises lies with other specialists too,

    I'll see if I can find the reference again.

    Thank you, that is very useful - just shows what a minefield all this is - perhaps better off going for an approved used? It’s a shame there isn’t some kind of software reader to tell you if the ecu has been flashed or something?

    Given the events of 2020 that makes a lot of sense, recently sold my 435d a few weeks ago and the price I got for it was ~£2000 higher than the estimate at the start of the year.

    Asking now since i'm currently looking to purchase an M4 myself with a sub £32k budget, was wondering if at the lower end it would still be advisiable to wait until next year or if that only applies to the newer, higher priced examples.

    I don’t think they will drop that much. I paid £55k for my new M3CP in Sept 2016, I sold it a year later for £48k. In the three years since then it has dropped another £15k ish, so an average of £5k per year. I would think it will slow even more, the new model won’t effect prices that much. The market is very strange atm so you may be right as prices are artificially high, whether they crash or hold up depends on supply.
