going to put my lovely ( 2010 BMW 320D E90 LCI BUSINESS EDITION ) up for sale

hi there guys hope your all well the time has come for me to upgrade.

so am putting up my e90 up for sale this week.

am looking to get a F30 or F31 330d m sport in that blue they do, I don't know whats the name of the colour haha.

what do you guys think of the my ride

I have done a hell of a lot to it.

I also got my alloys powder coated

I have to rewrap the front and rear bumper, as people love hitting in to my car. that's the work am getting done tomorrow.

other then that the car is mint. I wonder how much I will get for my car

I will put all the mods down which I have done in a while. for now I will let the pictures do the talking

Thank you for looking
Ash

Looks smart & done to a high standard but selling in its modded state will massively narrow your selling market.

The colour you're thinking of is Estoril Blue.

It looks stunning, but unfortunately Ive always seen people be very sceptical of wraps due to wondering what potential nasties it might be hiding.
Of course I'm not saying there are any, but you try to convince a wary buyer!
What colour was it originally?

If you want the best price you'll have to find someone who wants those particular mods & that won't be easy, you may even find that the value is lower thanks to all your hard work, but best of luck with the sale

If you have the bits - id return it to OEM and sell it on - much larger audience.

There is a perception if a person has modded his car - he has ragged the shit out of it as well - the 2 seem to go hand in hand (rightly or wrongly).

Agreed, you get more money back that way too.
Sell all the mods seperately and then the car as standard.
Often a car is worth more standard than modded

Another for back to standard vote.

Even if someone wanted a frozen grey E90, the colour match is far too far out.

Every photo you've posted from every angle, there is a big change in colour between the doors and it really stands out.

You're going to be aiming for a small market leaving it on, then even smaller that won't notice the colour difference.

Be easier to sell as standard.

It might be just the lighting in the pics but there appears to be a noticable diff between the rear of the car (rear door back) and the front (front door back)

Its a good looking motor in its own right with a good engine - doubt u will have much problem shifting that as standard - thinking it was black previously looking at profile pic??

I have to agree with the above, the doors look like 2 different badly matched resprays, I'm sure the original sapphire black is a much more popular colour anyway

It's not a spray job it's a wrap. Thank you for all your comments. I will put it on auto trader and if doesn't sell with this colour I will take the wrap off

It is the same colour both doors. It's the lighting of the sun hitting on the panel

You've posted various pictures in the past and the colour difference shows up no matter the angle the picture is taken.


People looking at the pictures are going to be instantly put off.

I will upload a picture again it's the same colour. Do you really think I would drive around in a car with different colour doors.

Also if it was a different colour I would re wrap the door

Looks good but as others have said, it will appeal to a very specific type of buyer. Most of it is quite subtle but the wrap will be the biggie. Wrap puts me right off a car as you just have no idea what it could be hiding and I would NEVER take a sellers word for it that it was hiding nothing.

GLWTS anyway.

Some people really can't see the difference between shades, even when a mile out.

You've posted up quite a few pictures in the past and it shows up everytime.

If it was to do with light, it wouldn't show up the same way and it wouldn't be such an abrupt change of colour too. It would be gradual across the angles.

People will notice. Look at this thread for example.

Some people don't notice, some are too polite to say. I was just trying to be helpful in your bid to sell the car.
