I'm tempted just to go to the auction to see what it goes for.

All looks about right. Do you think they will do much warranty work in it if that's where it was bought from.

Mate no harm but did you buy it from them crooks on the number plate ? If so you have mine and everyone else's on here's sympathy. There's a sticky on here about them. Good luck and I hope it all goes well with your new ride. By the way the blue ones are the fastest.

Surely he didn't buy from them. I know they buy from auction but surely that would've been one too far?!

It's obviously been there at some point in its life, so I guess I'm not surprised it's had issues as a lot of the cars there seem to have them.

how much did it make in the auction, anyone know?
I would guess as a non runner around 800 - 1,500 which makes a bargain for a hand on good mechanic to take a punt on it.
Great to see its been saved and appears back on this forum alive again!

On my dashboard comes up check engine light and couple of miles later (other day) i was put in firts gear and car was turn off like a no power with no steam, no noise sound and etc.
I took my car to BMW to diagnostic.After diagnostic they ask two more hours for investigation. After them i was took my car to another BMW specialist and done head diagnostic by Engine specialist, and all independent or mechanics with wich i have spoken they saying tah it's hapened while incorrect settings, attempted repairs. And there is them report about damages what they found and whow they done them job.Would like to hear other opinion in this case.
