Well a quick update.

Had lots of calls on the car over the last few weeks, but most were from people saying "what your final price" is broken english... which was becoming tiresome. When I explained that the price was £3,000, but that they could look at the car and make an offer, they tended to get shirty, and two hung up on me.

I've had 2 people make appointments to look at the car, but not turn up. One even had the cheek to moan to me about wasted journeys he had, where cars have not been what they had been advertised as... then he made an appointment to see my car, and didn't turn up! When I text him an hour after he should have been, he simply said "sorry not coming now".

I have to say, the market for this sort of car is full of time wasters!...

But finally, a lovely man, and his friend, popped to see the car yesterday, and after a very thorough inspection, a deal was done. The chap seemed really thrilled with the car, and it gave me real pleasure to see he was so happy with the car. I saw his smile widening when I showed him the electric operated bootlid, and the heated/cooled/massage seats... guess he was into all those gimmicks just like me...

Anyway, he left a large deposit, and is collecting the car Thursday, so I guess that's an end to my BMW ownership. But I'm so pleased it's going to someone who will treasure it!

I had exactly the same experience selling my BMW even with the 2 nice people turning up for a thorough inspection! How peculiar

Glad you’ve got it sold, it’s a relief when you know it’s finally done after the feeling is muddied by the wasters

That's the sale all done. The car was collected last night, and it's all paid up. Nice to have extra space on the drive!
