Don't generally like BMW silvers but Andy's looks the dogs
Cheers mr Z , i was told by certain others to avoid the silver but i'm glad i took no notice :P i actually think it shows the lines off really well + looks clean even when dirty , , i'm happy with it & after owning 4 grey & 3 black Zs was ready for a change
Have to agree with Mr Wilks, was told to avoid the silver but so glad I ignored them! Though we differ on the two tone colour debate his definitely makes me question my opinion.. :P

Great way into a 6cylinder Msport E89 for reasonable money https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-Z4-SDRIV ... Swng9Zsm84
23i 57k in white with 326s is always going to look the part & on the drive for potentially £10500 ?

Hi everyone! After trundling around in my 330e for 2 years I'm desperate to get back in a Zed, and an E89 35is is the one for me. (E86 3.0 Coupe before, check my post history :)).
The market seems completely bonkers though? Few private cars sitting around 16-17k and then a big gap to overpriced approved useds?

I just want a good colour combination and nav! Where should I set my budget? Not too fussed on age but mileage preferable below 60k as I will put 15k on it a year :? . The 2013 LCi doesn't seem to have added anything to make it worth the premium?

The LCi was hardly different..

Im sure you will get into a decent car with that miles around £16k....

There has been a few for sale around the forum lately.

Here's the problem, I'm besotted with Valencia Orange - I have a vague recollection of it being part of the LCI 'relaunch' as such? Is it 2013 onwards only colour?

There seems a vast gap in price from early cars (10/11) to only slightly newer cars (13/14) and I can't tell why? The only options I think I need are cruise, iDrive & maybe heated seats (are they standard on 35is?). Sorry for all the questions, just happy to be back in the hunt for a Zed! While the 330e has been an exceptional car over the last 2 years (lease) and saved me bucketloads on petrol, I've decided life is too short and I just need to suck it up and make friends with the Shell station again :(.

Valencia was only available on LCi iirc.. Its a cracking colour,one of the best for the 35is i think.

Nav/ I drive needed to be specced,but i think cruise and heated seats were standard.

Have you seen the melbourne red car on here for sale ?

Nice car at right money..

It is indeed the kind of ballpark I’m aiming for, but the colour combo is not for me I’m afraid.

What’s this I hear about LCI xenons being better?

I dont think its the Xenons that are better, just the led sidelights/angel eyes

If it's the same car, and low mileage and well looked after, why pay all that premium? Snap up the cheaper old ones and enjoy. Gives you a budget for fixing anything which goes wrong. I wouldn't worry about extras if you get the 35is, nav or no nav - they're all rubbish compared to Waze and Google maps these days. Buy on condition of the important bits.

It's a 2 seater convertible fun car, it was never meant to compete with the SL.

Cruise wasnt a standard option and not many have it, out of all for sale on AT atm only 1-2 have it.

Theres a melborne red car at a garage in leeds which is lovely but no cruise the retrofit doesnt give the same functionality either. :headbang:
