Looks like #61
That's the one James Paul sold in Jan-21. It's had at least 3 owners prior to James Paul selling it this year.
Sytner sold it May-18
Buyer from Sytner (presumably Owner2) was advertising it as '1 previous owner' from Sep-18 and ultimately sold/px'd it to James Paul in Apr-19.
Then it came back to James Paul in Jan-21, presumably after Owner3 sold/px'd.
Therefore now, it's at least Owner4

ETA: #061 also has/had a flat bottomed, alcantara with red 12 o'clock marking trimmed steering wheel with flappy paddles and the extended leather dashboard.

I certainly defer to your encyclopaedic knowledge.

Interestingly the exterior, interior and month/year of first registration corresponds on that car corresponds to this one so they’re close to twins.

James, this 1 owner one has just appeared on AT.


https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-detail ... esc&page=1
Thanks for this, fortuitously, i live in london but was back up at my folks in Tamworth yesterday (so that i could go and view F30 #49) when it suddenly appeared on autotrader. It was only 30 minutes away, so i managed to fit in a viewing first thing this morning before i headed home.

To be honest, I wasn't sure about the red dash trim when i first saw the pictures, but it was a lot more subtle in person.

I hate to admit it, but i did check the plaque to see what number it was, but then promptly forgot... :oops:

...but i can let you know next week when i pick it up :D

I like this one for LSD if nothing else!!
Need Bob to chime in, but could it be #136?
I haven't confirmed yet, but it looks like #055 to me.
#136 is an LCI on a 2015/65-plate and doesn't have the red stitched Black Dakota leather ... so not that one.

Shame it has poverty-Nav, but there are plenty of upgrade options now so just see it as a good excuse. Seems like reasonable value given James Paul sold #061 with 63k miles not long back and that only had 19's, no LSD or electric seats but it did have a leather dash and front PDC
Yep, it's #55 :shock: :D
