    Hi All,

    After trying to sell my house for 2 years, it's finally going. Downside is that a 10k Stamp Duty bill is just around the corner.

    Bought from an enthusiast a few months ago, I've hardly driven it. Instead most of the time spent cleaning, polishing, upgrading and today an MOT with no issues. Taxed till end of June with 58k miles and full BMW service history. Late 1998 S reg in estoril blue with black roof and chrome line factory windscreen surround and door handles. All black leather interior. Rubber seals Gummi Pfledge'd and roof treated with Fabisil on regular basis. 4 previous owners. HPI clear. BMW Owner Club car.

    Parrot multimedia smartphone compatible with handsfree. (Original BMW business headunit included)
    S54 shadow chrome alloys on low mileage Pirelli P Zero's all round.
    VANOS and spot weld issues OK.
    Tracker fitted.
    Good folder of receipts, previous MOT's, service invoices and complete original bookpack.
    Front end refreshed of stonechips and body excellent. Small scratch on rear quarter.
    Engine, suspension etc unmolested and excellent example of genuine car with subtle touches as follows;
    Original steering wheel retrimmed by Royal Steering Wheels in leather and alcantara.
    Storm Motorwerks Titanium coated gear knob, handbrake lever and cigarette blanker.
    M Stitch alcantara gear gaitor and handbrake gaitor.
    New genuine bonnet and boot roundel badges
    New BMW wheel centre caps.
    Justroadster magnetic stoneguards.
    N Denso aero wipers.
    Aluminium stubby aerial.
    Halo projector headlights (originals included)
    LED side lights

    All the above just fitted in the last month or so.

    I'm looking for 9k. Please PM if interested and for more photos.

    Thanks

    Michael

    That's a real shame to have to part with it. Can't you get rid of the Ducati instead? :)

    James,

    Yep, Landrover is on Pistonheads too. So, one has to go!

    BTW, Z is now on Pistonheads at £8500. Surely thats a fair price?

    Bumpety bump £8000 now (with new unit from Mr VANOS with 1 yr warranty)

    Slim pickings out there at the moment, you'd think there was a recession! What better way to cheer yourself up with a bit of M power :coolsteer)
