That is awful, not sure I'd want to own a car that's been sat there for that reason..

Least you know why and it wasn't accident damage.

The 335d was beige, not your car . Not sure what the actual colour of that 335d was but everything in it was beige, cream, magnolia whatever you want to call it.

Neutral colour suits a big wafter like the 6 series well. They look stupid in recession white or bright red.

You would probably have choked with the old Humber Hearse I bought years ago.

Hahaha Dave. Different kettle of fish. Designed or a job.

This guy bought this car and was his P&J and then he died. By default someone else now owns it. Just a hit creepy.

If by "awful" you mean that the previous owner died, that's a fact of life (and death). It happens all the time and folk's estates get sold on - as a close friend of mine said - it's gone to a good home.
Absolutely no idea what you're referring to as accident damage .

When I was seriously considering a new F12, I was tempted to go for either Vermillion Red or Deep Sea Blue, both with the Ivory White interior. However, remembering the experience of owning a Le-Mans Blue E92 and how the white stone chips contrasted, I decided on the Orion Silver - really lucky to get exactly what I wanted on a used car.

No need to roll your eyes at me.

Some cars have low mileage when new because they sat around damaged.

Does it matter who the previous owner was and whether he is still sucking air or not ............. he specced up a car and now someone else has a great deal and a car he is delighted with.

Just think how much drugs and how many damp spots have happened in your car.

Dammit, should have known it was too good to be true - drove it 600 miles back home and, thanks to your handy hint, it's only now that I've noticed the smashed in bumper, doors, rear end and all that "sat around" damage.
Just goes to show that the BMW AUC damage free document isn't worth the paper it's written on....., but wait a sec, I've just realised that 'damage free' must mean that I don't have to pay for all the damage - wow, what a good deal .
