So with the 6% premium that's pretty much £15K for the new owner, which doesn't seem silly once it's had the things you identified done.

Hopefully the buyer will join us on here!
Was interesting to also see a well-optioned 997.1 with just under 100k on the clock go for £15k tonight. Seems like a bargain compared to the ///M, but then you wonder what an equivalent manual would have gone for.
I think the engine rebuild may have put people off going higher on that one, judging by his comments it appeared he didn't have a receipt for the work either which seemed a little strange.
Ah, didn’t spot that. Very strange - could have been a big plus point with a bit more evidence.
2008 Z4MC: SG/Imola | sub-flimper spec | +OEM CSLs | +KWv3 | +TMS RTABLs | +VT mounts | +Eventuri | +OEM strut brace | +DB9 front BBK | +cruise - probably looks a bit like your one

Engine rebuild at 80,000 miles is alarm bells.

Engine rebuild at 150,000 miles with evidence and receipts is a plus point.

I meant it could have been rebuilt to sort IMS/RMS (the bill suggests maybe even bored and lined/coated too) rather than failure due to normal wear. Shame there’s no detail - unusual for Collecting Cars as they seem to know their audience.

Either way, yeah, not TV the most desirable 911 ever!

Hope the new owner got an over rev test done before purchase. :rofl:

Aeros, CF front splitter, looks like a custom-made CF rear diffuser (never seen one like it before), Strom wheels, Eventuri intake, fancy leather mats/lining (not sure how i feel about these), seems to have after-market backboxes too, as well as a few other bits.

I love it personally but £20K for a 92K mile M is way too steep in the current market, in my opinion, even with the mods.

Looks a cleanly fettled car, apart from the rear discs and driver’s seat bolster which have seen better days.

Not a fan of the cross stitched leather, nor the Strom wheels either (would prefer genuine CSLs), and the Toyo tyres (just why?!) but agreed it is strong money, could see a trade at £17,000 though.

That looks nice - wheels need either a good clean or refurbing. Agreed that it's way too much money versus recently sold stuff (that i've missed out on!).

I can't believe people spec'd alu trim when they got these originally, the carbon leather is one of the highlights of a z4m interior.

Is it my eye's or is the drivers door a different colour? Maybe just the light playing tricks with the light.

Nice car remember it being up for sale
Some nice mods added maybe return to stock and sell at a lower price for me.

My contribution to the Market Watch:

I sold my imola red Z4M Coupe this weekend.

It went for £12k (full asking price) with 128k miles on the clock.

Bought it for £12750 with 83k on the clock, 5 years ago.

Never had the bearings done.

:driving: :thumbsup:
