Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and am in the market for an E86, ideally with the following spec:

Si manual
Black or blue, possibly dark grey
<50,000 miles
Ideally not on run flats
As standard as possible

Let me know if you're keen on selling yours!

Alex

A bulk of E86s are hitting 12 years old with many used for daily drivers the first 5/6/7 years so your sub 50k ask whilst not impossible may leave you a tough task & budget will need to be whefty :cry:
Best of luck & here's one close to the target https://usedcars.bmw.co.uk/vehicle/2017 ... 6e5ea294ad

Hi and welcome OP - Coupe is a great choice! :)

But as mrwilks said Coupes with less than 50K miles are going to be rare now they have been out of production for a decade or more - which means the few remaining are going to be expensive. And you need to bear in mind only just over 2,000 3.0Si Coupes ever came to the UK.

I know it isn't one of your colour options, but I keep thinking this one looks really good for the money:-

And I wouldn't worry too much about run-flats - if you get one that ticks all the other boxes it wouldn't be a big deal to swap the tyres. Decent RFTs do sell on here, so you could offset some of the cost of fitting non-RFTs.

I hope you find one you like, and don't forget to post some photos once you have one. :)
Z4 3.0Si Sport - Coupe for added stiffness!
Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey, Cirrus trim & 295s. Cruise, Storage and pdc. E91 325i as a DD.
Gone - Ruby Black, Pearl Grey & 135Ms. Xenons, heated seats and Professional speakers.

Cheers for the replies guys. Yea - I know that sub-50k is a bit of an ask but I’m willing to wait for the right car.

It’s a toss up between one of these or a leggy Cayman S, but I’m pretty sold on a Z4C because of the looks/rarity/running costs.

That one on Sytner is lovely but a bit steep for 55k miles!
