Very interesting read Greenbat. I presume the hike between '98 and '99 was due to the price drop and Top Gear drivers car of the year awards increasing interest but does anyone have any suggestions as to why the big drop from '00 to'01?

The E46 M3 came out in 2000 (x-plates I think?), it would have been the car to have at the time, being more modern and techincally better spec'd etc.

Production was discontinued in year 00 for more than 6 months and production started again in february 01. That might have something to do with the big drop.

Brady,
In Ireland, I owned the black MC for a while. Are you the guy with the 99 D silver MC down in mondello? I spoke to a few BMW dealers on numbers and they said that they believe only 5~6 MC's were originally registered in Ireland (I've seen at least 3 Dublin registered MC's). I then know of a few more which were imported in from the UK (including the one in carzone). I spoke to this guy and it sounds like a good one, but he said he wants 29,000 euro! for the car. Might explain why its been there a while.

Hmmm, £19,800 of our GBP...I don't think it has any further interest for me, especially with 58k on the clock.
