    So due to a change in circumstances, my Z3 has to go, which I gutted about but needs must!

    I've an idea of what I think it's worth,but I could do with a second opinion on what to ask for it

    So the Good bits..

    It's an 2002 Z3 2.2i Sport Roadster in Estoril Blue, Black Leather, Blue Hood. Air-Conditioning, Elec Hood, Limited Slip Diff, 17" Y Spoke Alloys.BMW Hi-Fi system inc 6cd in the boot

    I've put new pads and discs all round, fitted new radiator, new radio with bluetooth ( 6 cd still in situ )
    Inner and outer tie end rods (Lemforder) and powerflex bushes front and rear. The front and rear bumpers are freshly painted, new badges, plus an oil service and brake fluid change, recently so 5 green lights. Yaw sensor and Radiator replaced as well! Done 75k miles with 7 main dealer stamps in the book so reasonable history, no rust on the sills and panels are all good, 5mm on the rear and 6mm on the front tyres

    And then the Bad Bits..

    Stiching coming undone on the rear of the steering wheel, leather worn on the drivers seat and the plastic belt guide has come off, the A pillar needs painting on the inside near the latches, the hood is a little worn but still has some life in it, no leaks! I'm the 5th owner on the V5

    It needs a good home

    I was thinking £4500, is this reasonable or a bit optimistic?!

    Photo's are in the Media gallery reg LD02EMX, thank you

    IMO thats a bit optimistic, particularly at this time of year, however I would think its a pretty desirable 2.2 given the fact that its a sport and Estoril, but I still don't think it would get snapped up even if you dropped the price by a grand, the Z3 market is not as good as it was I'm afraid

    Thank you for your input everyone, Now listed for £4250 in the for sale section, which is roughly where i thought it might sit.

    If you can, wait until Spring. It’s not a great time to sell a soft top, IMO.
