    ^^ Good idea. I'm awaiting a call from the most recent one.

    As a bonus for the next owner, I had a new battery installed in November which cost a small fortune.

    Afternoon guys,

    Well, after several attempts since Friday I have finally spoken with someone helpful at BMW. However, in order to retrieve any info about the car's history I need to give them the VIN number, which I will do tomorrow. My registration number is not showing on their systems, indicating it must have previously had a private plate.

    That's such BS. You can get your VIN from the BMW Warranty quote page.

    Yours is WBSWD92030PY36823.

    Thanks Shaun, it does seem a bit odd. I've called them back and they were able to find the VIN number themselves, and they're supposedly going to call me back.

    Guys, i've been going round in circles with BMW UK and the dealerships since Friday. Endless fob offs and very little info given. I've written a formal complaint to BMW UK.

    As I can't find an answer regarding the actuators, to sweeten the deal i'm discounting the price to factor in a potential actuator repair. It feels bizarre as the car is mechanically perfect, and they may well have been done already.

    Nonetheless, new price, £18,250, no offers.

    Cheers mate. Yeh, I genuinely doubt there's a better buy out there, for anyone in the market for an E92.

    That's a really, really good price I think and a great looking car.

    Good luck with the sale!

    Despite being bombarded with PMs yesterday, they've ALL vanished today. Lots of time wasters. The two potential viewings have not happened.

    I'm more than happy to help in any way I can to make a straight forward, hassle free sale, but PLEASE only contact me if you are serious about buying an M3. Time is precious folks.

    Your car looks a very nice example and a good price.
    I'm mulling over selling my M3 soon. I suppose i'll endure this too when the time comes. I can't understand why some people do this and just wonder what they get out of this time wasting malarkey:(.

    Good luck and I hope you get a result soon...

    This is lovely mate, and from what I can see it's very fairly priced.

    I'd snap it up if I was in the position to buy

    Hope someone has it soon buddy it really is nice

    Thanks chaps,

    I've had so many similar comments, yet I still get PMs from chancers trying to get more money off.

    I am not in a rush to sell, in fact I still question if its the right decision, so once again folks I am not taking offers.
