M market watch

Post by beanie » Mon Apr 20, 2020 1:12 pm

Just looking at that one on collecting cars, I'm not surprised it went for what it did. The airbox and wheels, assuming you like them, must easily add £1500-2000 over and above a standard example. It's also a fairly rare colour.

The only thing that struck me as strange was the beige seat plastics and door cards. I thought the M always came with grey/black plastic with just the leather inserts changing colour?

Fwiw, I also think the paint looks good. Minor swirls are a non issue and I'd argue that the road rash is par for the course. You can't expect a 12 year old, 90k car to be perfect.

I was wondering about that too. It’s also odd that it has extended leather on the transmission tunnel but not the door cards, so maybe they’ve been swopped at some point?

Looking at the stitching/panels they are non ///M seats, and as said never seen an ///M with full beige door cards.

That has been messed with as from factory it had full black interior.

Chassis is LG19039

Pure guess, but it might have been fitted with racing seats by a previous owner and the standard seats and door cards sold?

Yes fairly bought and well sold, the reserve was 12k. Even taking the interior trim swap into account, if it had been in NZ this guy would have been all over it :D Looked lovely under the bonnet, and no sign of corrosion around the wheel arches or engine furniture. Love the Monaco Blue, we have a Nightblue 4 coupe Si.

I’m so glad it wasn’t just me with whom this rang alarms bells! Nice wheels and air box, but if I had been in the market I think I’d have still steered clear 🤷‍♂️

Can't Believe how ridiculously cheap the cars are in UK!?

Sweden / Europe you need to pay around 30-35.000 GBP for a nice example :headbang: :thumbsdown:

MOT history appears clean, apart from the corroded offside brake pipe advisory which was ignored for 4 years.

Would ask the seller to put on MOT on it seeing as it is due end of August for peace of mind however.

Aye

Either way... I bet a £14k bid would buy you a lovely car with sensible miles and good spec, most cars have 100k + in this price range

This time last year that wouldn’t have looked out of place at £20k when the prices went daft

Here in New Zealand there are very few Z4’s here (apart from Japanese imports that are mainly automatics) and pricing is more than the UK but less than Sweden / Europe.

Looks like another very low mileage one has gone up for sale:- https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified ... Z4M&page=1

The price doesn't look too silly for 29K miles and one owner + demo. But Titanium Silver with Black is a bit uninspired, and although it has Sat-Nav and MFSW, there are no parking sensors, heated seats or cruise.

I wonder how long they will have it?

Ive had a ti MR & currently have a ti Si coupe :roll: in a sea of black & greys its refreshingly clean & shows off every design line that helps the E85 E86 retain a modern look .
As for the car itself :driving: difficult to say right now where that will find its buyer , a summary of its history will help along with a look at the tyres & brakes , both of which could still be on the originals :o has it had a Ins2 ? needs a transmission tunnel cap to start so there's £15 :oops: :P
Z4s , i've had a few :oops:

Won't be many at that mileage....probably represents a good buy at that money for those who won't do more than 2k a year. Also, the best looking MC is Dubseed's Silver one... absolute perfection.
