G21 B3 #523

I see this lovely Portimao blue B3 is for sale at Cotswold BMW. 2 owners in less than 1000 miles mind you. Seems toppy at almost £90k.

It’s a lovely looking thing. If it was £15-20k cheaper I might take a punt. Suspect Cotswold might not entertain that offer!

I guess a conversation can’t hurt.

In my experience, once the initial conversation happens, it's all over. I get sucked in and there's no way back!

I went for a test drive last week.

It looks even better in the flesh but it is a tad on the steep side.

I’m tempted to go for a look, but do feel that it’s £15k over where it should be. The asking price now is greater than the list price a year ago. Seems optimistic 🙂

Yeah I agree about the price. They were willing to discuss figures though and were optimistic a deal could be done.

There’s a white B3 touring for sale at Nottingham that I went to view as well. 6 months older, only a 1 owner car for £13000 less. Worth a look.

I’ve seen that one Graeme. Not sure about the interior if I’m honest. This car buying lark is a challenge!

Had some discussion with Cotswold and we're too far apart, so looks like this is a no go. Onwards!

Hi Matt,

Have you seen this one - https://www.pistonheads.com/buy/listing/11940924 - My perfect spec, bar the privacy glass. Has a pan roof too.....

I recall it being for sale with the same dealer when it was nearly new, I am pretty sure I spotted it as the dealer is very local to me. From reading the advert it looks like might be back in stock again.

Cheers.

I hadn't seen it, but it looks lovely. Might have to give them a call.

Need to decide what I can do without on the wish list. :)

I see the advert for the B3 at Cotswold has been removed.

Assuming someone has bought it. It is a lovely car so not surprised it’s sold so quickly.

The one at Select Automotive is #107 which they have been advertising pretty much since July-21. During that time it’s been spotted at a couple of race tracks around Europe so I imagine the mileage is going to be somewhat higher than the advert suggests. I have a print out of the original spec which is attached.
