    Johnboy is usually the instigator of the meets and he's just had a young un which might explain his lack of free time nowadays.

    We're definitely over due a meet though!

    Slightly off topic, for you boys in NIRL, hollybrook sports cars have a dolphin grey E30 325i sport coming up for sale. See the pictures of the black E46m3 kon their site and you'll see it. Anyone know the car by any chance??

    Additionally my old 325i sport H711 CKK, black, grey leather is up north.. Anyone know it?

    Cheers

    Weird site that ni-bmw. I registered for it 5 years ago, forgot about it, re-registered a year back, but it seemed pretty much dead. The M Forums haven't had a posting since May and no postings at all since 2 days ago.... so not much in the way of active users. Doesn't encourage return visits when the home page says the latest news is Car Spotting on the North Coast in October 2014... :D

    I'm a bit surprised they are organising meets with that low an active membership. Am I looking at the wrong site? ni-bmw.co.uk?

    No, he usually keeps exceptional cars... for a long long time. :D

    To be honest, I don't know how they make money. They still have listed a 2003 E46 M3 with only 18k miles on it that they were selling back in February when I bought mine. Reason being, they want 22k for it (I asked, they don't list all their prices).

    Oh look, they now have an '03 SMG with 10k miles and very low spec that they want 27k for.

    Exceptional examples, granted, but big big money.

    I spoke to them when i was fishing for mine also, his reasoning was "sure spend 7k on an M but be prepared to pump another 7k back into it, at time though he did give me excellent advise on what to look for, nice chap to talk to really reassured me that m3's agricultural gearboxes were normal lol

    :) Yeah, the salesman at the place I bought mine (William Taggarts) had only good things to say about him as well. He had nothing in my price range at the time so we only exchanged a few emails, in which he was very helpful but gave me the same advice he gave you. I pointed out if he knocked 7k off the asking, it would still be over-priced. :D

    Overall, I'm not sure. It's not like he's listing cars that have had sub-frames strengthened, or SMG pumps replaced already. Therefore the big spends are still sitting ahead of you AND you've paid a huge premium for the car.

    Is a 12 year old standard M3 with 10k miles on it ever worth £27k? Especially when you look at the spec and it's nothing special. In my eyes, you'd need to be a real collector who plans on garaging the vehicle for some kind of investment. But then, it's hard to make money on an investment that you've paid a premium for in the first place. :confused:

    I had the same experience with that site. Only ever looked at it as a guy (i think he might have been the site owner) came over to me in Dundonald and told me to look it up and sign in...

    Anyway, does anyone in here organise any meetups?
