How can that be a 2012 car?

First time I've seen a cassette tape player in a car for a while!

My mate works in BMW diplomatic sales. You'd be amazed at the armoured stuff they produce

What if the riots broke out and escalated ten fold over the previous ones, complete and utter chaos! You, just an average citizen had bought the car, and you thought you would be perfectly safe nipping out to the shops for a pint of milk and a cheeky double cheeseburger. Then you realise thats its not bulletproof at all nor is it impact resistant. You would be totally screwed!!

I guess it wouldn't be much use in a zombie attack either

It's never been registered that's why it's a '2012' car

Maybe the person they built it for didn't make it to the delivery day!

I suppose the car weights 3t now and is dead slow lol - you wouldnt escape that fast. The windows are like 1-2" thick, the tyres puncture resistant etc etc

I think in those days the E46 was beeing built, but the car was never used I suppose. Very strange but inside and out it looks just like brand new - not even one scratch !

Yeah, weird how and unregistered car is on a public road.

Maybe it's a car scam. The one where by you're asked to turn up with the cash for the car, and you get robbed lol. Saying that, they usually under price the cars to bait people in.

Maybe it's new due to the modifications and it's considered a new car?

I do not think so lol Take a look at it - all the components are brand new without even one scratch. The guy says 2,000 miles was done to deliver it to the customer.

I think it was kept at BMW garage or some other garage for around 10 years and never has been registered. Maybe its been armoured to get some customers - standard 330i auto would never sell for the price or even lower lol. Kind of special it feels to me.

I would think it strange that BMW would drive a brand new car 2,000 miles to deliver it, particularly when it has a list price of circa 95,000?

Who knows, maybe its true and the guy seems a genuine guy kind of as he has a lot of very expensive cars for sale. If I had the money and was sure about its true I would have taken it for 25k lets say if he would agree - just to feel safe having one in my garage Would not mind any riots etc etc
