Anybody fancy a MOT horrow show - Bmw 550i Touring? - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/125447594187

The seller reckons its a £600-700 job to fix. What a lie!

I've priced the required work:

Brake discs and pads - £505.71
Brake pad sensors - £28.91
Shock absorbers - £830.40
Air con condensor (probably needed) - £114
Aircon regas - £75
Brake lines - couldn't find a price - Let's say £100

Total parts = £1,654.02 + Labour!

I don't see this selling anytime soon.

Wow, impressive!

Most of those parts can be had cheaper (in good brands), e.g. 4x Bilstein B4s for a shade under 500 quid, but tbh why bother? So much to do there, high miles and still a big asking price. Dreamer vendor.

The best bit is claiming the CCV needs doing, when on that engine it'll be stem seals for sure!

Completely agree with you there. Nice pictures, but can't imagine there being a huge market for a ropey petrol V8, high tax and high mileage (160k isn't high, but it will be to your average punter).
Also had to laugh at "the gearbox is the best I’ve ever felt from an early E60/E61"...someone has a hobby of feeling gearboxes? Sorry, being childish.

You forgot the 2k odd for valve stem seals (if you're lucky) plus £££(£) for sorting the oil the car is leaking rather than consuming.

It's the hardlines that are corroded so the brake pipes have the potential to be really labour intensive depending on what needs to be dropped for access.

Oh, and worth bearing in mind that he's a trader... So probably has a "friendly" MOT tester and yet still had the longest fail sheet I've ever seen.

They also will get trade rate on labour and parts, and even he doesn't want anything to do with trying to fix it scratchchin

Notice that the other over priced e61 he's flogging is also broken. He expects you to weight in nearly ten grand for a 13 year old diesel BMW and expects to charge the buyer extra for fixing parking sensors and making sure all the windows open

Absolutely joker, but shows what a few nice pictures and a detail can do for your margins.

looks like it will need tyres soon as well based on the advisory list and possible investigation into an oil leak.

The kind of thing that might be worth a punt at £2k, £3k at an absolute pinch.

He's having a laugh at that price.

V8 daily drivers is a small market at the best of times, I do not envy trying to punt that in the current climate.

I nearly used CarVertical for the SL but I baulked at the cost. I can't recall which one I used but it's just HPI/Experian with a fancy website.

I need a suggestion please to remove a musty smell from the boot of the CL. I don't own a wet vac. I have used AutoGlym interior spray stuff and a brush and then let it dry in the sun but it's not much better.
You can try soda. I would say pour it on a newspaper as it would be a pita to vacuum after.

Musty smell... there are specialist products now that use SiO2 to eliminate bacteria that cling to fibres and cause odours. Air Viddox is one such product.

Thanks chaps. I'm feeling lazy so I will pay for the deluxe Romanian valet today. At least then I can take some snaps in preparation.
