2008 Z4 Coupe (E86) 3.0si Sport, Manual, FSH, £8,250

Post by TAWdrive » Thu Oct 14, 2021 11:04 am

Hi all,

I am regretfully listing my Z4 Coupe for sale. I purchased the car from a forum member earlier in the year, and planned to keep for some time as a weekend/fun car.

Sadly my daily runabout has packed in and I now need to sell the Coupe to release funds to buy a slightly more practical car that can fulfil occasional family duties. Despite going around the houses trying to assess whether the Coupe can somehow be kept I have come to the sad realisation that it's time to move it on.

The car has been very well looked after during my ownership and also by its previous owners. It is currently listed on Auto Trader for £8,250, which I think is priced fairly given the current market, condition and mileage of the car. However, I am open to feedback and of course sensible offers from forum members.

Any questions please just ask away :)

Get a classified add on EBay, £19.99 for 28 days and allow ‘best offers’ (Not the auction format)

Ask a bit more than you think is realistic/you want to achieve, but not too much more so it puts people off

You’ll have to bypass numerous ‘last price’ muppets, but it’s my ‘go to’ method for selling a car now.. very effective if done right :thumbsup:

Edit: Just realised you’ve got it on autotrader, but I’d still be tempted with an Ebay classified :thumbsup:

Cheers for the advice. I'll see how it goes via here and Auto Trader, but definitely a good option to think about. Had a handful of enquiries and a couple of viewings booked already so fingers crossed.

Lovely coupe. I would be interested in traveling to view it but my Suv is still for sale. Ideally I need it sold before I buy a z4. I'll keep an eye on the add in the meantime. If the Suv sells ill give you a Pm. Cheers.

Can't believe it's still available at that price!
