Stratstone harrogate have this though....

I just found a great car on Auto Trader.

Download the app to find your perfect car.

:headbang:
Bought my son an M2 from Stratstone Leeds and as a BMW stealer they are fantastic. Price may be a little higher than on the high street but when you work out its an Approved Used BMW so you will get 12 months BMW warranty including full UK/European breakdown recovery, 12 months MOT cover ( if your cars MOT is within 6 months of needing renewal they will MOT the vehicle for you and your following MOT a year later is free), if your cars service is due within six months they will service it before delivery?

Nice car = nice deal = HAPPINESS!

Here she is...

48k miles. Black leather. Fantastic drive. In love. :D

Getting the car checked over by a specialist tomorrow. Only slight issue is a vibration through the steering wheel at 90 mph (I was on an autobahn :wink: ) - wheel moves around a touch too.

For info - Harrogate Stratstone phoned yesterday - the 09 silver z4 is down to £10.8k! Bargain.

I think you’ve made the right choice

The E86 and E89 are like chalk and cheese one is analogue and the other is digital and a modern era car

The E86 is the last of its type .. a normally aspirated straight six with a manual gearbox and rear wheel drive

I’m not sure if any car is a sure fire investment but I think the coupe will look after your money far better than the later car

Hope you enjoy many epic miles in it

Heard it drives more like a grand tourer than a 2 seater sports car though. Vrai ou faux?

It’s more comfortable, but don’t forget that an e85 is also like a grand tourer compared to a proper sports car like an Elise etc.
It’s all relative :thumbsup:
