What baffles me about people who modify/slam their cars is the fact that buy the earliest oldest least popular models and spend thousands on turning them into a facelift and expect to get their money back?

Why didn’t this guy just buy a 530i sport and put it on ‘air’, then take it off and sell it as it is, an original 530i sport

Absolute nonsense. I doubt it'd get any interest at half that.

That looks like an old BMW with collapsed suspension. And no interior pics.

Its 'up to extreme standard' and he'll put a new MOT on it for another £50, over the £15k asking. Seems like a bargain.

The seller is flattering this classic in the pics and description - it may not be quite so immaculate close up

I sold a much nicer one for a third of the price of that this year!

'Also the seat belts do work, although something has happened as they get trapped. This happened after i got the car sprayed. Original colour before was beige. '

Ahhh, annoying when that happens. The seatbelts are obviously only compatible with beige paint.

Is that one for the Bad Parking thread or have the hotel just told him to move it out of sight?

It had done 200+k 11 years ago.

Not to mention for four years it had numerous tests with exactly the same mileage.
Even in photo's, that looks rough.

I think I'll give 'feeling the power of that 1987 engine' a miss...

You’re all a bunch of knobs thinking you’re all merc experts. Cars like these are going up because they’re rare! Might look st in pictures but you when you seen them on the road I reckon all of you low life keyboard warriors look at them then look on eBay to buy one and you wait prices will be going up higher every 10 years. So enjoy ranting for another 10 years lol

I'm going to take a stab in the dark and say you may well own a white 300CE?
