I viewed and test drove the Romans car (FJ05NDV). The car was stored outside, poorly presented and the EML was on. The salesman didn't seem remotely interested in selling the car which has been on their inventory for over a year. Strange experience.
I test drove it last week of January. Didn't have the EML on at that stage, but yeah, hardly any paperwork. I called every BMW branch, Alpina and the BMW premium servicing line. No record of any services :-/

So crazy, I have the details of the previous owner. But figured it wouldn't be right to reach out.

Yeah similar feeling from them, that they were not that fussed trying to sell.
I reached out to the previous owner. He was a helpful chap and sounded passionate about the car.

I was ready to buy it but the salesman totally turned me off. Got a low mileage Z4MR instead.
Very strange indeed, after it being there for so long you’d think they’d want it gone.

I’ve decided to forget it too, modding the Z4MR instead.

A question on values, I have been the owner of #116 for a while but with a kid and 3 other cars on the drive it doesn't see much use.

If you could potentially do with the money but aren't itching to get rid of the car, would you try and sell now? Or is it better to wait (and if so, how long for?)

Roadster S 3.4 Lux, 126k miles if I remember correctly. Huge box of receipts, I think values have plummeted a bit so may want to hold on for next summer.
I’d say if you can hang on until next year then do that, it’s probably the worst time to be selling a car in years, folk will be waiting to pick up the inevitable bargains that will be coming onto market. Just imo of course. :thumbsup:
If I were to list it today, what's a sensible price to try for? The 143k-mile example is up for 9k, would mine be sensible at 10500-11k? Or does that put it too close to the others for sale?
Current:
E85 Alpina Roadster S Lux, E85 Z4 3.0si Sport Individual, E31 840ci Sport Individual Estoril
History:
E31 850Ci, E32 730i, E87 120d SE, E61 520d SE, E85 Z4 2.0i Sport, E82 118d Sport Coupe, E53 X5 3.0d Individual, E85 Z4 2.5i

If you’re in no hurry start high and drop slowly. The phone will start ringing when it comes into the correct bracket but I wouldn’t say £10-£11k is an unreasonable starting point

It all depends on history and condition really. I’ve seen cars described as mint and yet I’d be embarrassed to park them on my driveway.
