Well , if you don't want comments id delete & try it on ebay or FB
As a Z fan its hard not to appreciate what's on offer but i do fear you have boxed yourself into a corner :cry:
I fully appreciate the bespoke lengths you have gone to but stripping off the trinkets if you have the original parts to go back could be your only hope of getting close to £9k for what would be a £4k/£5k car in stock form :(
& id drop the bit about really not wanting to sell , its a for sale thread :wink:

Those are the seats the Z4M should have come with :thumbsup:

You'd possibly get a better deal if you sold the seats separately (assuming you have the originals to refit) and reduced the price of the car.

Maybe removing some of the cosmetic styling may help the sale (i.e. they yellow bits and the strange grey/beige handbrake/gear surround). Don't forget most mods don't add much (if anything) to the value of a car and may make it harder to sell as you've instantly reduced your audience to those who want a car modded exactly as you have done so (been there, done that...twice) :oops:

BTW, how long does it take to fill out all those mods on an insurance proposal/quote? I found it was bad enough with a couple of aftermarket mods, but now Admiral was factory options declared too :x

Lovely looking car, tasteful additions and well executed. Seats particularly must be a great improvement. Overall, you have a very individual car you should be proud of.

Unfortunately I have to agree with Mr Wilks re value of the additions etc but someone may come along and find this is exactly what they want without the hassle of doing it themselves. However, imho, the price puts the car in the territory of other, arguably more desirable models. Replacing even the seats back to standard would be a good idea as I am sure someone would snap them up.

Regardless, best wishes for the sale.

Tut tut, you lot were already in big trouble for commenting on the OP’s thread without putting in an offer in, and now you expose the speculative pricing. Shame on you :rofl:

Yes and no - that was late 2019 before prices rocketted after Lockdown 1, as I found out when I was selling my E86 in December 2019/January 2020.

I reckon I would have got at least another £2K for mine now. :roll:

But then I would have paid far more for my MC than I did then - it's all relative!
