Thought you were going to buy it but were waiting on the other lead you had ?

What mileage discrepancy ?
not paying 98k for a car that is not correct ,can you imagine trying to sell on in the future with the mileage issue????

You made the right decision…not rushed into the deal by letting your heart over rule your head ( Mr Norris at ML has a PHD in bullshite with his selling pitch when selling cars and 95% of fools fall for his this and later realise the car has problems and Mr Norris is all of a sudden more busier than Boris to return your calls or fix the car at his cost )
just wait for the right car to come up for sale with no mileage discrepancy and the seller allows you to have the car inspected by anyone of your choice because a honest seller has nothing to hide and knows his car is on the money and the car is as described in his/her advert and no porkies have been told in it

If am looking to buy a certain make , model of car , I join the forum on that model and I attend car events with that model on show and engage with car owners and put the word out am looking to buy and more likely it’s sooner rather than later I have purchased the right car within my budget from a great honest seller

Good look in your search

Some fools on here will still disagree with you and say you are a liar and have a personal agenda against Munich Legends and it’s owner , staff etc etc

Nothing better than cold hard facts served with a cold dish !!!!
Everyone has different experiences I guess.

Not everything they did was bad, and pricing was reasonable.

However, my main grip with them is that they did not torque my front diff bolt properly after replacing a rear lower arm which resulted in the bolt popping out of the thread whilst I was driving (luckily it was at low speed and so no major damage) but they did not own up to their error and it wasn’t until a forum member pointed out to me what had happened that I realised.

They also damaged the paint on my door after replacing a faulty door lock actuator, although they agreed to correct the paint free of charge (after some pushback) they gave me attitude about it (as if they were doing me a favour).

I think my final straw with them was when after the differential fiasco my car started to make a weird noise upon take up of drive. I raised this with them, but they told me the noise was normal (even though I pointed out to them that the car never made the noise before). In response they told me they could fix it by replacing the diff and prop (££££) or put up with it…a few months later when I had the boot floor reinforced by AutoTorque, they replaced the propshaft guibo and UJ which resulted in the noise going away…

So yeah not the best experience. I believe they used to do good work back in the day but have since lived off the name…

Nomad should just come clean with his story. Anyone can post things on the internet saying this and that. If you have real evidence go to authorities instead of whinging on here. If you don’t then carry on.

I've been waiting on information from Dan for a while too, can't even get the reg no. For the car off him!!

There's too many red flags to carry on pursuing the car tbh...they do seem to be trading off past glories and expect buyers to take their word for stuff because it's Munich legends.

I Will say and do what I want on forums …
if car owners read my comments about ML and how other. Bmw owners have been ripped off by them
, they will save a lot of money, headache and not lose their hard earned money to a professional who has a PHD in bull ****e selling cars at ML !!!
I prefer to take certain individuals advice on here about ML ,
over your personal opinion about them PONY!! !!!
