Cool Finally! ... BMW 335i Owner at last

Well after 4-5 months of searching, changing my mind and disapointment I finally found my 335i.

HUGE thanks to Davy for located it for me, without him I say I would have never known about it, so thanks alot mate.

Im getting some pictures taken at the weekend after a good wash and mini detailing session. For now heres the spec and future and present plans:

Sept 2007 BMW 335i M Sport
Sapphaire Black
Manual
Cream Leather
30,800 miles with FULL BMW service history

BMW Prof Sat Nav and entertainment unit (DVD etc and Ipod connection in arm rest which i never spotted at the start)
Hi Fi Prof Sound System
Heated Seats
Electric Sunroof
Anthracite headlining
Phone prep/Bluetooth
MV4 225 19" Wheels with new tyres
Winter pack
Interior light pack
BMW Performance rear spoiler
Walnut Trim, soon to be Carbon Fibre
Cream plastic to door cards, Soon to be black plastic with cream leather inserts
Bi-Xenon Headlights

... Huge spec so im probably missing loads more

12 months warranty to keep myself sane

So far ive purchased:

- JB4 with USB
- AR Design Catch can
- Black door cards and centre console

Down the line:

- FMIC
- Downpipes
- Recirc DV
- Eiback or H&R Springs

Congrats on the new car and glad I could help out.

Did you collect last night? I was walking past with the dog about 7.00pm and saw it sitting in the handover area so reckoned you were collecting pretty soon. Great weather for a new motor too !!

Also reckon that car was pretty cheap, initially I thought the price was low because it had no nav but of course it turned out to have all that and more spec.

I reckon they priced it low thinking a manual would be hard to shift as they had one before that took quite a while to sell, little did they know it was exactly what you were after.

Yea collected it at 8PM last night. Sitting in work here already itching to get home and wash it

Yea got a very good deal on it and a good price for my 350z aswel. Guys were a joy to do business with as you said Davy. Couldnt do enough and got my reg transferred and tax changed over for nothing.

All new alloys all round aswel JKC changed all under warranty as rear two where cracked. Result I thought

Yes metro plates are an NI thing I suppose.

It's been a while since I bought anything from them but was a good experience at the time. Glad to hear things are still the same as I walk past there everyday and the temptations can be strong.

Good on JKC to sort the wheels, guess thats a warranty job so they were happy enough. Buying cars from JKC isn't the same attitude of do everything for the customer, the last car I bought from them I just got the impression they were skimping as much as possible on the preparation.

I can see it happening sean! a motor will come up next month and we will both be interested...

I think you may be looking for a similar car also and you're north west too. i suppose we'll see. there is a black one on autotrader for 14995 which i like the look of but its miles away! i also noticed a new one on pistonheads yesterday which looks mint but perhaps a bit overpriced:

http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/3752372.htm

again, its miles away!

this is the one on autotrader and has everything I'll be looking for so may be worth the trip over next few weeks:

Lovely spec Chris, i'm not keen on the full cream interior so putting black mats and changing the door cards will make it 10 times better IMO.

The Autotrader one was the one that i got let down on! I was meant to travel down there this time last week but he sold it to a friend of a friend (apparently) I've been in contact with him this morning as well as it's still on Autotrader - he said he's just not taken it off yet!

The Pistonheads one - i spoke to him yesterday morning and he won't budge on the price as his phone hasn't stopped ringing with people queing up to buy it!

seems like you're on the ball with it then i really hope you get your motor sorted over the next 2 weeks so i have less competition when buying mine!

im not sure exactly how much interest he'd be getting at 18k. i suppose we will see if its sold over the next few weeks. id be offering 16k for it!

Sounds like a really good fine, a manual too, good work. Seems there is a queue for decent LCI 335i's at the minute. I too was half-looking but don't think I'll do anything about it thought (a decent manual 330d might though )

You not checked out the BMW Management auction at Colchester? Can view the catalogue on Manheim's website. Starts tomorrow.

Hi Sean,

I think you need to ask yourself, why hasn't he sold it yet if it's that damn popular?! Make him an offer and give him your number, I'm sure he'll call when reality hits him in the face!

Hi Jay

The car went online on Tuesday evening, so i would have thought most people will have lined up viewings for the weekend?

I tried to make him (well he's a trader) an offer but he was totally not interested in hearing it

If it's still on tonight i'll try again after work, 16,000 miles is sweet for a 5 year old car. Some lovely options, just missing the privacy glass.

Looks like a well spec'd one with next to no miles, I guess that's why he feels he can justify that price on an early model year. I'm considering chopping mine in for something with around the same mileage as that but I just don't think I can find the car I have now (with less mileage) at a BMW dealership, it took me long enough to find this one which I kind of 'gave in' on.

I've just checked the Glass's price on that car and I'm not sure what's going on, they value it at 13,100 part-ex so I'm guessing that's a private sale of around 15,000. Glass's is an odd one, their valuations are always far below the going AutoTrader rates even when you consider the retail price it'll go for. For example, my car according to Glass's will fetch 15k part-ex however it would retail at 19k on their forecourt.
