Manual 335i E91 M for Sale on Autotrader

Looks like a nice car, says new turbos and HPFP. I know a lot of people are searching for these.

No affiliation with the seller or anything !

They are based near Brighton. When I enquired about a vehicle the other month, it took 2 days to get a response over text. Called during opening hours and got no answer.

Not sure if that means they are a bad seller, but might be worth knowing you may not get a fast answer if you want to view.

Possibly based out of Horsham (on telephone number), where I live, if someone wants me to go check the car out, would be quite happy to

Apart from being a pre-lci, I suspect this could be in the higher tax bracket too

I drove it on Saturday. Not too bad, ding in the boot , front bumpers been repaired at some point and has paint runs. Scuff on RH underside/side skirt. Felt okay to drive, steering felt pretty heavy. The guy buys and sells loads of fairly decent cars, I didn't put a deposit down as want to drive an lci auto with less miles.
There was something just holding me back as well couldn't put my finger in it.

The steering will be heavy, it's a hydraulic system rather than the electric that other E9xs have.

It felt heavy to most cars I've driven. Could be fine but was just something I noticed.

BMW steering is typically heavier than most anyway, it's what a lot of people like about them.

There's a silver 58 plate for sale on NI. LCI car, but not a brilliant spec. Depends what you want/need.

Saw that last night. Looks nice, but it pretty low spec, apparently there were only about 20 odd of the LCI touring manuals sold, so super rare.

Got to add on the cost and time of getting over and getting the thing as well.

Yup. My black one was one of 15 or 17 I think. The current owner is loving it, so guess he won't be looking to sell any time soon.

Arch,

I think the pre LCI were a few more, but still not huge numbers. Not sure what you're thinking of as a "hot price", but the one on autotrader still hasn't sold and neither has the LCI one on ebay (but that one is in Ireland).

There are the "how many left" website, but tricky to work out as this site is saying that number increased in 2016 on one line, when I think only 340i were made ?

Thanks for that, so according to that there will have been no more that 31 pre LCIs (i think the LCI was in 2007 wasn't it?) Mine is a high spec but 125k miles so difficult to judge I think I'll keep it seeing as I've just got around to fixing all of the niggly little jobs I'd never got round to doing.
