Word of warning for anyone looking at the M Roadster in Lichfield with 36k miles.
The car is absolutely stunning throughout but never had running in check/service done! First service on the car was at 14k miles.
I spent 3 days tracing back the history of the car and it had a strange first year.
Might still be a decent price at £17k for anyone that wants to get the car properly checked out!

Yes,that was a shame about that one's lack of Running in service,Richie,or you would have had a very nice M there for yourself mate :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I guess it's always useful to periodically look at what else you can get for £17k that offers the same potential value?!

£16k seems strong money for 67k miles even with a solid SH
Tbh,being an 06,I would say it's not way over priced,given 07 reg cars are often around 17k.
Yes,I know there are also some at around 14k with similar miles, but I think an advert for 16k,expecting to sell at around 15k wouldn't be too far off its value.
Just my opinion,but sellers do seem to want to stick to their guns,prce wise now,as they know the Roadster Ms are due to go the way of the Coupes and z3m Roadsters,.so don't want to give them away too cheaply.
While buyers want the cars as cheap as possible,same old story.

If sellers don't back down from a certain price point,then buyers will pay the ask if they want one I guess.
All im saying is that we are in the middle of winter right now -maybe in May/June 16k for that car would be more realistic . I would imagine if the seller was offered 14.5k they would bite your hand off -as my grandfather used to say -your first profit is always your best one

Nice low mile for someone!
Wonder how much they're willing to shift on price?

is the 'AT priv' based on estimates from current listings? Interesting to see your tracking of the summer/winter prices, i imagine the roady fluctuates more than the coupe - but personally if i was selling yours id be looking for more than 15k ;D

No, it's the valuation they give for my car each month.

Well everyone now is a good time to be parting with a zed, my px (main dealer) was very fair given the visual mods on my car, need for quite a few consumables in the next few K. I've gone all grown up and bought an F10 M5. Uber beast barge. Very different and back to back the sense of occasion and sensational feedback of the z4m is something that will be sorely missed but my car was just approaching that tipping point where I either spend big this year doing the key maintenance jobs and new discs etc and keep for many years to enjoy that to the full or swap out for something newer and more suited to my current circumstances. I'll post some more details when the car has gone and I've picked up the new girl. Needless to say I'm sad to see the zed go but very excited to be back in a V8, especially something as all conquering as the M5. I still miss my e39 but they are just too old and expensive to run these days and I'd rather have a BMW warranty than any sleepless nights! Details will follow but there's some good haggling to be done if you're not in the mood for private sales (and personally I wouldn't bother given the price I achieved).

I feel like I've been here before, but I may need to sell the Z4MR to buy another house!! I really don't want to, but we really want this new house. We really could do with the money.

I would probably get my dealer friend to sell it on SOR, so dealer sale, 45k miles, 2006 Z4MR, Monaco Blue with light Sepang leather seats and carbon leather dash. Has the extended leather option too, Inspection II done last year. £17,995 sound like a good listing price for a dealer with new MOT, warranty, and with spring around the corner?

I'd say give that price a go, seems sensible....as you say, we are moving into March and who knows what will happen with prices this year.

Seems the milage on so many Z4M’s don’t really align with the general wear of the car? Mine (over 100k) has sometimes less wear on seats/pedals/wheel than cars with 10th the milage out in Europe, Mobile.de etc.
Are the odometer’s ”easily” tampered with? Obviously a lucrative thing to do..
In Sweden every MOT register milage so it’s easily traced back thru the years, not so sure about the rest of Europe?
How’s it in UK?

Thanks

I think there are quite a few out there with insufficient maintenance/care. Too many are owned for a short period, driven very hard (abused) and then sold on. This is not the sole reason and I don't think that is unique per country though. Plenty in the uk with a lot of wear on the seats.

Prices have remained quite stationary during the winter. Are we expecting another hike come spring?
