Wow that's very reasonable. Where did you buy it from if you don't mind me asking?

Wood BMW in Bournemouth seem to charge top dollar for everything.

It was from Westerly Bridgwater. Originally up for 15.5k but was sitting on the forecourt for a few months so I got it for just under 13k.

I also had my eye on this one- was up for a couple of k more than that two months ago.....

They do seem to be all or nothing spec wise a lot of the time. I was lucky with mine and just stumbled across a very highly spec'd car at a decent price. Private sale though.

Aye, and if you are fussy about colour, trim, and interior colour, then you're really limiting your options.

I was lucky to find a good spec car, with black leather, in a colour I liked. But it took a while.

One thing to bear in mind: cars tend to look awful in the photos BMW dealers take of them for their listings; they always look much better when you see them 'in the metal'.

It is... So many otherwise nice cars were, for me, spoilt by the beige/brown/red leather interiors when I wanted black. The more fussy you are, the harder it's going to be to find what you want.

Yes unfortunately I am quite fussy and prefer a black interior although I could live with Oyster or Red leather seats. I would also really like to have DAB as it cannot be properly retro-fitted due to the aerial. USB would be nice as well. A lot to ask for 15k

Good job we're all different, don't think I'd like black leather

Mine is black/alu dash with cream leather. Black leather would just seem too dark overall to me.
