You have to admit, this is a pretty impressive car for the money.

Nice car but crying out for a manual gearbox IMO.
Non M E34s really worth £10k?

I don't mind the auto box. It is still a pretty cool Q car.

Only 44.000 miles as well.

I bet if a dealer was selling it he would want twice the price.

Did you see the pics showing the under body?

IF it comes with that plate then that must be worth something.

Looking at the detail in the pics it is an interesting steed.
Not seen electric cloth non sport seats before.
Temp gauge sits just past 12 and a V8 should never be run with that little fuel in the tank.
Service book states 39601 miles on 22/1/09 and the chap sold it 2 1/2 years ago with 39k on the clock so it must have stood unused for a number of years.
Perhaps that is why the pictures show mots dated 2010 and 2009 and why it may have needed new shocks all round.
But spending £3,000 on a Quaiffe LSD when it has an autobox is nonsensical.
I cannot possibly fathom what was going through the owners head at that point (apart from a future manual conversion)
