I think low spec is an actually selling point today...the sat nav ages the car badly and devalues the car IMO
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.
Maybe personal opinion as well, I'd rather have it and would buy one before one without, all other things bring equal :thumbsup:

I didn’t have Nav in my MR but do in the MC and tbh I prefer the dash without it :thumbsup:

It's still a big plus. It's just useful for changing settings, displaying radio stations / MP3 and usually combined with the less crap amp / speaker combos. Also dialling numbers etc.

I also use the Nav as a backup for when Waze / Google maps takes a dump / no data. Also sometime to look at a zoomed in map when diverted. I think the maps I have are only a couple of years old.

Interesting, i made them an offer along with requesting a copy of the service history and they won't respond to my messages. Now i see it's going on Collecting Cars. I wonder if they are hoping to get more for it on there. Still a courtesy message back would be good.
If you do make headway & get to a point where it might be a goer i don't mind heading over for a look & listen , its only 15 mins from me :thumbsup:

I noticed that too, and asked the question of DK Engineering. Got a polite invitation to jog on, so we did :roll:

Surely a dealer with their reputation and calibre of cars shouldn’t be like that?!
Also retake a photo, what has happened?

So, that must have been somehow put back on wrong after a disk change. I’m guessing the mounting bracket was put on upside down...is that even possible? :?

I reckon it's just resting there for the picture, the front calipers aren't genuine z4m ones, must have ran into a problem when changing them :?
