Been monitoring Autotrader and Pistonheads for M roadsters in imola or titanium. Don’t want a garage queen and went to visit the imola red roadster currently on Autotrader up at £15k, unfortunately the garage was closed :x

That went for a bit of a bargain. Wonder if it will go through.

Good value for money with great service history. About 13.1k all up with commissions?

If it does go through someone seems to have got a bit of a bargain!

Although the next owner may want to invest in new bearing shells and will need to get the rear brake pipes replaced soon.

I got an alert for this MC which looked like a bargain:- https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-detail ... BMW&page=1

Then I read about owner servicing since 2014 - might be a good buy, but might not!

You'd probably get a better idea meeting the owner.

Think the CAT N marker, listed right at the end, would be the killer.

He’s edited the Ad. I read it last night, and said something along the lines of, the car was stolen then recovered and registered as CAT N.

I’m sure I wasn’t dreaming. As ever, best for a car vertical or similar check for its history. Happy to be proven wrong. Don’t want to ruin someone’s sale!!

I remember seeing that too matt. it's easy to check on line or with a text check. you can't hide these things.

a CAT registered car is going to fetch 20-25% less than a non reg car.

given the mileage and condition I would say this is about right as it should get 20-22 if it were not registered

prices are softening that for sure as toys like cars and luxury items like watches are feeling the pinch too.
