Post by J9NO A » Thu Dec 07, 2017 4:36 pm

Some of you may recognise this car, previously owned by Kevin of this forum.

I bought the car at 166k, I've taken it up to 179k and enjoyed myself immensely. I've recently left my job to study for a Masters degree in Swansea. I need an economical car (I'm now driving over 600 miles per week). I will consider a P/X for a comfortable diesel or small turbo petrol. £3000 FIRM for a cash sale. Mobile 07777 621 564. Location: Somerset (South West)

The car is in fantastic condition, bar some stone chips on the front bumper. Please take some time to study the pictures.

At that price it should be a good buy for somebody .Is the front bumper a different colour to the rest of the car,or it just the photo.

Never noticed a difference in shade, could be because the photos were post-processed.

I had to post a reply to this thread as i just wanted to say what an amazing looking car that is. 179k miles and still looking as stunning as new. A real credit to you and the previous owner :thumbsup:

My Z4 has 122k on it and it runs beautifully. These engines can go on forever if maintained.
