320cd modded - What's it's worth?

Recommended Posts

I know this is a difficult question as the answer is "what someone is prepared to pay", but looking for a rough price.

Before I List the spec I need to point out that recently the electric actuator on the turbo has started to stick when the engine is cold. The fault does not happen 95% of the time but I would have to put this in the advert as I'm a honest person. Refurbed turbo is £350 (eBay) plus fitting.

Second point is the the car has done 130k miles but it had a brand new engine at around 70k at BMW with the receipts to prove. So only around 60k on engine

Spec:

53 plate Silver Grey BMW 320cd M Sport

2 previous owners (1 of them my brother)

BMW service history until 110k BMW specialist after- Full history stacks of receipts 

130k (60k on new engine)

New LUK clutch and DMF (1000 miles ago)

Excellent Condtion - Recent paintwork

19" Stlye 313 replica alloys (2 recent Kuhmo rear tyres) - Some kurbing / chips

Ebiach Sportlines new rear sach shocks

M3 Interior VGC 

M3 Mirrors immaculate

Eonon D5150, upgraded speakers amped, v.subtle subwoofer

Remap 197bhp with Printout

Swirflap blanked, Vortex breather

Angel eyes & HID's (1month old)

New genuine BMW thermostats (1month old)

Lots of bushes polibushed

Full decat stainless twin tip custom exhaust with reciepts

Good disks & pads all round with braided hoses 

Probably missed loads out but will update for the for sale ad. Very nice Condtion car. Lots more photos in my build thread.

Hey mate it's hard to answer but my car was a 03 330ci vert auto that had done 50k miles. Was Ms sport with all upgrades bar sat nav and heated seats. I upgraded to 19" CSL reps, new sound system, new steering wheel , angel eyes, sat nav (eonon), reverse camera.the max I was getting for trade in was around 4k (this was cos I sold it on November) and the max I think I could have got was around 4700 private. Hope this helps mate. Cos of the high mileage you might not get what you want but if you hold out there might be a BMW enthusiast who wants this car. Hope that helps

Oooh this is nice. Off the top of my head I would put it up for £5k to allow for movement in the price. It's clearly a well looked after car, and the mods are very tasteful.

Thanks for feedback! 

Im unsure whether to put a new turbo on as this issue may put people off? I'm doing 300 miles a week and it's not a problem at the minute but the issue is there

£5k is way off imo. I would also sort out the turbo issue before selling, it would definitley put me off buying the car.

I'd have to agree. I think the fact it has high mileage and is a 320/coupe I think you may struggle to get 4. I could be completely wrong though

dont forget the car had new engine from BMW so around 60k on engine and lots of parts have been replaced /upgraded on suspension etc 

The turbo is not a major problem at the minute only happens occasionally when the car is not fully up to temp. 

Im thinking £3,500? This is a VERY nice example that's tight to drive and very powerfull!

How much was your LUK clutch and DMF? Would it be the same on my 330cd? Haha. 

 

Lovely example, I don't think your far off asking for 3.5k. Maybe advertise it slightly more.
