Only update from me Pete is that I'm going to see if I can sell it privately first. Well, I say privately, I know a trader who will host the advert, deal with phone calls, sort out viewings (I'll need to make my car available obviously) all for a modest flat fee. Could make around 2k more than trading it in if not 3k - this would bring the cars I'm currently looking at, but slightly out of reach, bang on the money. I'll just need to spend a little on it first (alloy refurb & new tyres), which would just eat into the profit, and see what happens - I guess they're not flying off the shelves in this weather. I need new tyres anyway so if it doesn't sell then I've not wasted anything. Still between an E92 330d (sensible choice) or Scirocco R (mad mans choice ) but would frankly consider anything if mine sold (Golf GTI/R, 125d coupe, you name it, I've considered it). The only real pisser is that I don't think I'll be able to stretch to an M135i even with more cash in from me tantilisingly close though .
