I like this, a lovely looking car. Especially with the hard top prep as it would be some usable car with a hard top.

brilliant ad and pics to boot.

what most would not account for is that youve already save the new owner much wedge by taking care of a couple of big bills already and having the right rubber on the car

best of luck and stick with the price its worth every penny

Thanks. It is a lovely car and I'm genuinely struggling for ideas to replace it. I was thinking about selling it back in April but couldn't come up with anything so held on to it.

Since the original posting I've had the dent guy out to sort out the couple of door dings.

I've found something I'm interested in so have reduced the price for a quick sale.

I would absolutely love to take this off your hands, just exploring to see if one of my friends is willing to go halves on the cost as I cannot 10.5k at present.

No Alpina mats, but they're still available for £183 from BMW, it didn't come with them and I never quite got round to buying a set.

Number plate is included.

£2k more than I sold it for.

Still a good car though.

Replaced it with a TVR Tuscan and sometimes wish I hadn't!
