Hmmm, maybe it's so low because of all those naff M sport badges. And on an SE to make it worse! Does seem cheap though...

Nice thing is that it's a manual.

Price looks a little low, but not excessively to suggest a Cat D.

I'd rather spend a little more and go for something like this and at least get a 1 year AUC warranty:

And it's not too difficult to get the trim changed!

Steering wheel looks shiny for only 35,000 miles. May just be the photo.

Just wanted to make sure I wasn't the only one who thought there was something not quite right about this one. I think I'll give it a miss.

A quick google showed it sold at auction recently for just over 13k so it could well be true, top book for a '56 335i was about 17k
Might be worth a punt after some thorough checking, m badges can be easily removed.

Despite the advert wording it's not an Efficient Dynamics car.

How did you find that out on google lol? Nice one.

Another thing that didnt fill me with confidence is the title describes it as SE, then he refers to it as M Sport throughout the rest of the advert. It seems like a well spec'd SE though but from what people are saying 18K aint enough for the M sport i want , in fact a search on BMW AUC shows that even 20K isnt enough as only 1 hit comes back. O well. gona have to wait a bit longer i guess.

Is that really the piano black trim? It looks grey to me. Maybe it's just the photo?
