I ended up withdrawing my offer on the car, the logistics of viewing the car were difficult in the current situation (300+ miles) and I’m not 100% happy with the low spec of the car so I decided not to go ahead with purchase.

I think low spec is an actually selling point today...the sat nav ages the car badly and devalues the car IMO

Have to agree , spec to me is more important on daily drivers , majority of ZMs now sunny days & Sundays what extra spec over stock do you really have to have ?
Also think the piano black trim works well but if the car doesn't appeal it doesn't appeal :cry: , £14500 80k + fresh set of Michelins its not a bad point to be into a ZMC

Agree on that! Add £500 for a Gruppe M and £500 for an exhaust and you'll be pretty well set with that car.

I think it may be the same seller as both show a location in Clitheroe!

I wasn't too bothered about spec when I bought mine, but having heated seats, Professional Nav, cruise and the HiFi stereo were just an added bonus - although I've hardly used the stereo as I seem to be addicted to the S54 soundtrack. :roll:

Agree on the sat nav (as previously posted), but heated seats is a must in any Z4M imo.

The Digital TV in mine is a nice novelty :lol: agree the screen dates the interior though. Otherwise it's aged well, clean and simple.

Heated seats is a simple retro fit for £500, have them in mine and the heating element is much better that the oem version. Although to be honest I very rarely use them anyway....if buying today it wouldn’t put me off a car in anyway.

Heated seats in a MR a must, in an MC not so much

I can't see how it devalues the car, I have intravee and it's good for that.

I think devalue is the wrong word.

It’s more a case of the sat nav being less desirable.
