Not another bloody estoril car

Looks very tidy. When I got my E46 330i a few years back it was an 03 plate (facelift) with 73k on the clock and looked brand new; not a single fault with it - you'd never know its age or mileage. Fingers crossed you'll find the same with this one.

This has full BM history and a 2 big folders of papers.

This one feels 'right' ... would have preferred black leather and many manual.. but... it looks bloody clean and rather compromise on a few bits to buy a well looked after motor.

Good result!

Makes sense,did he not question your sexuality as well?

Lovely car,the E46 was/is a great car,I quite often see a peachy one and question myself as to why I ever sold the one I had prior to buying the E92.

Not a great fan of the rear spoiler (standard fitment on a clubsport,I don't know?),apart from that it looks an absolute corker

Enjoy,looking forward to seeing pics when you pick her up.

Is it a done deal?

180 miles is nothing to travel for the right car mate. Looks lovely and is a damn site better than that Rowdy Audi vert you posted.

Best of luck.

Good choice. I have been looking at high mileage examples of these today (don't know why) and they just seem such a good buy with that lovely silky smooth engine.

What is your brother in law on? He suggests a TT and then says this is a hairdressers car. He clearly knows nothing, you should just stop talking to him altogether.

Nice one, it looks fantastic and really well cared for. Keep up the BMW history and I bet it will not lose too much in 12 months or so. I like Estoril Blue, good choice.



Edit...the car dealer is just up the road from Roger.....

At least this one is proper estoril blue. Not like all these new fake estoril F series cars that we have kicking about now.

Looks great

Weren't you the guy who considered an older TT?

If so you made the right choice!

If it had 4 wheels.. i pretty much considered it

MPS, TT, Boxster, 350Z ... for the budget i had - i think this ticks the boxes.
