I owned this car briefly about a year or so ago. I sold it for about 12k i recall.

It was pretty good overall, owned by another forum member before me. The interior let it down a bit (alpina leather seems to wear worse than the Bmw leather). Gearbox was good at the time; it had a slight misfire I think that presumably was fixed (it wasn't terminal). Not that you would have noticed - it was very rapid.

Wow my old car has popped up again and it's now over 100% increase on what I paid for it just over 2 years ago! Talk about selling at the wrong time 😏. Highly optimistic asking price mind.
Anyone want a previous owners insiders view you are welcome to pm me.

We were only talking about it on Sunday hey Phil?

Quite a price tag that. Will be interesting to see how long it hangs around at that price. Gives me some hope that mine is worth the investment I'm giving it.

Note the front discs are Tarox, not OE Brembos. Not that it means much.

We were indeed Asim, and I laughed at making a few bob on what I got it for originally! Still if I hadn't sold the B10 I wouldn't have the B6 now. I can sleep easy on my choices.
Anyone want to know when B6 prices are due to double just wait a couple of years after I sell mine!! (Not for a long long time mind).

Don't worry Phil, nobody is going to pay 20k for it!

So how much profit did you get out of me? Wink

More than you got out of GMS but who's counting😜. i got to enjoy it for a year and I don't buy my cars with the aim to turn a profit. It was just how things worked out.
Your right on the price now mind.

Still quite common though Very Happy , as there were 18 in Blue Wink

Very encouraged with the asking price, makes the money I have spent on mine worthwhile, if I came to sell it that is Whistle

I was offered the car by Glenn at GMS CARS
He wanted around the 14k Mark
I offered 10k on it
I think 12k would have bought the car
This was within the last 3 months
