NEW Listing - S50 - Silver
5 Attachment(s)
Hi all,

After 4 years of ownership, the time has come to part ways with my Coupe:

- 92k miles
- HPI clear
- black on black leather interior, heated seats, a/c
- MOT July 2018
- Inspection 2 carried out July 2017
- Wheels refurbed at Lepsons in "dark anthracite" and in perfect condition
- 4 new tyres with less than 250 miles (Hankook Ventus v12 Evo 2)

The car has a full service history (including the running in service) at a mixture of BMW and indy garages. In my time, I have exclusively taken the car to Mark at MJF Engineering in Dorking; his reputation speaks for itself. He has carried out:

- welding and strengthening of rear diff mount / subframe on first visit, along with full inspection for any of the common issues (boot floor etc.)

- subsequent inspection 1, 2 x oil services and an inspection 2 carried out in July of this year

Small mods / work in my ownership:

- Replaced throttle cable
- Braided clutch hose fitted
- Black kidney grilles fitted
- Replaced headunit with Clairon FZ102E - great OEM appearance. I still have the original HK unit, which will come with the car
- Short shift gear lever fitted
- Replaced boot, bonnet and wheel roundels and all M power stickers

Mechanically the car is fantastic, pulls like an ox through all the gears and has never given me any bother. Like any car nearly 20 years old, it does have paint chips, minor bumper scrapes etc. that could use some TLC.

An M coupe was THE only car I wanted to own growing up and it's been a real privilege to own and drive it for the past 4 years, but hand-on-heart, with so few of these around and how little I use it (5000 miles in 4 years), I want it to go to a new owner who is as desperate to find one as I was and who will take care of it for years to come.

I'm looking for £27,500, which I think is quite competitive vs. what's on the market at the moment. Car is available for viewing in Peckham, London.

Thanks for reading!

Car is now on eBay as I feel things move slowly on the forum these days. Still available to any interested buyers through the forum:

I noticed in your ebay ad, you state no abs... not sure if thats right,?

LanterneRouge 15-05-2018 06:46 PM

I stand corrected - I donít know why I ever thought that was the case! Iíll edit the ad. Cheers for that!

FYI - car is relisted on eBay, with a bit of extra info. Didn't make the reserve last time but wasn't too far away

Re-listed my car on eBay and again it didn't sell with a very low reserve (or at least I thought it was low).

I'm really surprised it's proving so difficult to shift. What do people reckon: colour combo? location (is London too much of a pain for most people)? condition (I've obviously pointed out the flaws as I see them) or just luck?

Be interested to hear thoughts as I think it's a great car for it's age and could be had for considerably less than I've seen anything else available for.

What is the reserve?

cosmas 12-06-2018 06:19 PM

There are an unusually high number of cars for sale presently.

Values appear to have risen, however the number of buyers hasn't risen at the same rate.

All times are GMT. The time now is 04:30 PM.
