It’s one of those cars that could be a good bit for someone who can do the mechanical work themselves!

Yeah 100% if you have to pay for everything to be sorted things start adding up quickly.

I always think of Scotland having long salty winters and it has to affect vehicles underneath more than down south

A car garaged in the winter in Scotland will be just as good as one down south. Most of the salt they see is from the roads and I’m sure we get more of that down here. However one that lives outdoors on the coast and gets battered by storms and surf 200 days of the year is bound to suffer. Joycey restored a Scottish car (nicknamed Nessie, documented on another forum) which literally had barnacles growing underneath it.

I work in removals I see thousands of garages it’s very rare I see a car in one, usually the only time I see a car in a garage is when it’s a large property with more than one garage and it’s something expensive in it like a Porsche or Ferrari ....the weather in Scotland in my experience in winter is it’s flipping rough and I have spent a lot of time there but I’m no expert, the green z is Edinburgh based and owned for 9 years from memory and it certainly doesn’t look like a garaged car and it’s near the coast ....personally I like the green I tried one a few years ago in South Wales an auto but I didn’t pursue it despite liking it but the interior was naff I only briefly viewed while passing for work

She was a tad on the crispy side. The z4 is almost show car condition now.

Did anyone see the Z4C 3.0i on collecting cars the other day? Very interesting sale price, I was watching the auction and there was plenty of time to outbid the final price. Not sure if the car had hidden secrets but looked pretty solid and honest.

A sign of the times and certainly a shift in the market (or the start of) I would say....

100% a sign of the times IMO, I was watching with interest, I think the interior colour put people off a little bit. I was bidding on a Cayman which didn't sell for an overly high price either.

Don't forget you have to buy a buyer premium on that price but even so that would be £600 on top I believe.

Exactly that. Selling price was £8,550 plus the £600 so £9,150 - still a really good price for a 56 plate with 54k on the clock. That Cayman looked good too, I was tempted.

It was a really good price say 6 months ago but who knows what a good price is currently. The market is changing fairly quickly that's for sure, cars are sitting around and not selling.

Yeah the Cayman had good spec and history, i wasn't a fan of the wheels and didn't really want black which is why I only bid so far. :)

Time will tell what the market will do going forward, there maybe some good opportunities as a buyer though

Would you say it could be the case in general for cars that are seen as weekend/second cars?

General cost of living can surely turn it into a buyer's market for anyone with some spare cash sitting.

Wow. I commented before on this forum that there were four Z4s on my street, this one was my neighbour’s. Seeing his was one of the reasons I bought my coupe. In fact I asked him if he would sell it to me, but at the time he didn’t want to let it go.

Whoever got this has an absolute bargain, I hope it’s someone on here. The car was always locked away in his garage and was meticulously looked after.

All I can say about the market is that I sold mine for what I asked for it, which was considerably more than this and mine was an SE, this is a Sport. There are definitely buyers out there for these wonderful cars.
