That would set alarm bells off in my head too. I'm glad I decided against that car now.

Buying a 335 petrol needs a bit of caution therefore short ownership could ring bells. Could also just be someone who changes often.

Hmm, what you really need is a long term original owner who knows every last thing about the car, much more so than the supplying dealer in fact.

I completely agree. I just need to find one available for my budget

I've test drove a 335i with cream leather and it was very plush inside and it looked very nice. Im just paranoid it will get dirty very easily and I prefer black leather.

It's maybe boring to some, but black will always be the most popular to most.

I've had red leather before and liked that too, but light colours just don't do it for me.

Maybe but cream leather also means cream carpets and interior plastics. On the odd occasion (we have a passat family hack) where I have my 1yr old and 3yr old in the car I will be paranoid.

IMO black looks better anyway.

Hi,

I've noticed your car on autotrader already. Ideally, I'm looking for a car with black leather. All the cars available at the moment seem to be blue with cream leather.

I can't PM you at the moment because you don't have enough posts on here. If you looking for a quick sale, what's the lowest you would take?

I have somebody coming to view my current car on Sunday. If they buy it I could possibly up my budget to 15k

I'm still looking for a 335i

I sold my car today so from tomorrow I'm having to drive around in a 2002 mondeo which I'm borrowing.

I'm still looking but my budget has now increased to 15,500 for the right car. I nearly bought a black m sport the other day but the deal fell through.

Please could a moderator change the title to 15.5k budget. I'm not sure how to do it.

Obviously its a bit more special than other SE's with the modifications but I'm not interested in modifications so don't want to pay a premium because a car has them. If it was 13,500 I'd be interested.
