Seems too good to be true for the flood damaged car and I’d be worried it’s had no mot since 2017 ( the year it was flood damaged). Still worth a look tho as if it stacks up its amazing value.
I just ran an online Tax and MOT check and it has been taxed and MOTd but they both expired end of June 2018.

I just checked on the ebay business that's selling this car, and its a service garage that also does diagnostics so that's not a good sign. I would think water and car electrics don't mix well, although the Advert states no issues with electrics. :?

Its such a shame for a 26K mileage, and £15K price tag "with negotiation maybe £14K" But :!:
But it is registered as a CAT car Brian, so shifting it on again later won't be easy

I've always wondered about the balance of having a cat registered car as a long term keeper - and I suppose the relatively low residual for recorded classics would be a bonus factor in keeping it in the long run too! The potential value is a bit of an appeal too though

Yeh decided to give it a miss, Its been up for sale soooo long I agree it will be a problem to sell it on later but my big worry is the water issue and possible elec faults with all the sensors ect within the floor pan. Pitty.

Loving my #160
Engine ballistic.
Seats not so bad actually. Might get new foam inserts (are they the same as the z4 sport seats?)
Paint could do with either a polish or a respray if I really push the boat out/want a divorce.
I was going run it for a year to make sure the mechanicals are totally sound then splurge on a sound system upgrade but totally keep OEM look (so amp with high level input, subs into the cubbies and new speakers all-round). Can have it looking anything other than stock!!

Edit: CAN'T HAVE it looking anything other than stock!!

I'm in the same boat! The foam inserts are different to m-sport iirc, people complain a lot about the regular m-sport ones.
Paint wise I need to get a few little chips filled in.
Does yours have the lux pack? Which level of sound system do you have - base, hifi or top? I need to do those upgrades too and want a complete OEM look.

Yes, Lux. I think the stereo is base but not sure. It's pretty average. I had the HK in my old z4 and that was fine but I do like nice sounds. Anyway like I said, firstly a trip to Munich legends to make sure mechanically it remains good. Wait for wife to forgive me. Then gently upgrade/ bring to pristine. Any guides/tips gratefully received.
