    bmw e61
  1. Whaaa, you went with a mercedes? Well that dodgy trade/private seller car sold before I could get a viewing. I've seen some of those after market android setups, looks pretty cool, though not many ppl seem to have it done. Thoughts on my latest ad of the week: http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201611179863488?onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly%20New&onesearchad=New&body-type=Convertible&year-from=2001&keywords=sports&model=3%20SERIES&price-from=500&maximum-mileage=150000&advertising-location=at_cars&price-to=3000&year-to=2005&minimum-badge-engine-size=2.2&postcode=sm13pe&radius=45&make=BMW&sort=year-desc&page=1
  2. Is that a car you were considering?
  3. Hey Rich, I know you said no sticking random ads up but I'm thinking of looking at this car over the weekend. http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201612220785534?minimum-badge-engine-size=2.2&keywords=leather&price-to=2500&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly%20New&onesearchad=New&make=BMW&body-type=Convertible&model=3%20SERIES&sort=year-desc&year-to=2006&postcode=sm13pe&radius=50&aggregatedTrim=325Ci&advertising-location=at_cars&year-from=2001&page=1 Critique? Looks ok, other then the damage on the bonnet. Any idea how much that would cost to fix? Still got the other 325 you found on my radar, hoping to get to that this weekend as well.
  4. Cheers Rich, legend! I'm thinking the 318 might not do the car justice, so 325 sounds like a sweetspot for me. I think number 6 might be a winner. I asked about the scratch, says he got quoted 260 to repair. Plus it appears he has dropped price to 2k! Will head out on the weekend and barring the car driving like a dog, I might own a new car!
  5. Manual or auto is fine. Any type of leather, as long as its in good shape, not loud colours. Colour.. Again something conservative, no reds or purples. But yeah, decent vert 50 miles from Sutton please.
  6. Clearly I am terrible at this. I don't think I mentioned face-lift version, not fussed. Heated seats, sat nav pro, and a nice interior. Doesn't even need to be a 330, I'm no boy racer, just want something decent, pop the top down on a nice day and go for a cruise with missus and bub.
  7. http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201701051013098?model=3%20SERIES&radius=100&aggregatedTrim=330Ci&sort=price-asc&body-type=Convertible&postcode=sm13pe&advertising-location=at_cars&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly%20New&onesearchad=New&make=BMW&page=1 Looks pretty decent and in my price range, and not too far away either. I've asked for more interior shots, a tatty interior really lets the car down.
  8. Is it common not to have sat nav? What is ccv pipes need replacing? And warning lights on, those busted sensors can be pricey to fix
  9. Thus car came up on Facebook.. https://m.facebook.com/groups/1388299958138183?view=permalink&id=1636875709947272 Said it was cat D at some point. Looks pretty good. One of those too good to be true?
  10. That was it. The exterior looked fine, just interior. Maybe the tan interior doesn't age well. Probably should not rush it. Guy was saying he bought it from a BMW mechanic, car is supposedly pretty sound, though he did come across a genuine bloke.
  11. Full replacement, found a set of tan seats on ebay, looks marginally better, might be expecting too much. Guessing it will cost a bit to get it fitted.
  12. It's the last link I posted, listed for 2700. Whatdo you mean by buying an interior? Would I lose the heated seats? Or are these just covers? Who would I approach to fit these?
  13. That does sound like a good deal. Saw the car today, car seemed sound,drive was good. Interior was very tired, anybody know how much it would cost to return the seats and panels?
  14. I was looking at this one the other day http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/E46-330ci-Convertible-M-Sport-/122287495123?hash=item1c78e717d3:g:BNYAAOSwUKxYY7Lc Seats look a bit rubbish, is it possible to re holster/ refurb leather seats? The price is a bit low, I have a good BMW indie who sorts out my e61, so the spare cash could be used to fix up any outstanding issues. thoughts?
  15. Yeah, it got sold, must be decent demand out there. I signed up to the e46 sellers page on facebook, a few cars on it, questionable looking sellers though.. or it could just be me. Rich interesting list, I think they probably didn't show up as I kept my distance to 40 miles from London. Significantly higher across the board than the 3-4k I wanted to spend, would have thought I could get a e93 with just a bit more. Number 10 seemed a bit pricey with its dodgy electronics. Not sure how the boot is not completely standing out if he missed it in a respray, and why he didn't get it done afterwards. The search goes on..
