I'd be looking at the one posted above - see below link for more detail,

although it has 80k miles - the car is obviously 10 years old - so 8k per year is considered low (outside of london)

14 service stamps in 10 years - shows that it is probably in better mechanical condition than a 10 year old car with 40k miles with 5-6 services that has stuck to bmw's every 2 year service requirement

Looking at it's history it did all it's miles in the first 3 years clocking up 48k miles in 2.5 years by it's first owner. and then just 30k miles in the last 8 years by the last 2 owners.

You can see that the car has recently been reduced by £500, and the tax ran out a month ago, which is probably when the garage took it on, so would be looking to turn the stock around and get rid. negotiate on the extended warranty for piece of mind for the next 12 months....

Great work on this mate, thank you. I have seen this on Autotrader actually and was going to give them a buzz. You've nudged me to give them a call.

Maybe I should have been more specific, it's not a LE. It is low miles thought, sub 27k. It's white, 5 door and without m-sport bumpers. It's in Belgium by the way.
Left hand drive?
Yeah, that too :)

anything to update Jack ? did you look at the two available ? out of interest how many miles do you anticipate to add on each year ?

Called the dealership yesterday but the 54000 mile car was sold. His on the hunt for another for me. I will keep you posted mate!

I'll do around 6-8k miles per year. Plan on getting birds eibechs all the way round, limited slip diff and some spacers to make it handle a bit sweeter!

That's a shame - I do think if you want to own a 130i LE before xmas then the 80k mile car is you best bet -

your trying to find a car which has done 40k -50k miles in 10 years, so you are hoping someone has only been putting around 4k miles on a year, but you intend on putting up to 8k miles on it per year, so the premium paid of purchasing a low mileage car now will be lost in a few years,

I purchased a 330d with 85k on the clock, and sold it 2 years later with 135k on the clock for £2k less than my original purchase price, I think once a car has done over 100k the price is similar for 100k or 130k miles....if it's been well looked after and lots of service history, knowledgeable buyers will know it's going to be better than most.

Very true - and these cars are good for several 100,000 - that private 130i with 220,000 that was on ebay has sold so it seems pointless worrying about whether a car you're interested in has got 60k or 78k on it really

There's only 2 130i's on ATrader with sub 70k miles - both m sport - 1 manual 1 auto

There's only 2 LE's on there - a private one (Knutsford) (have you seen it - just look at the garage it sits in) and the dealer one at Penryn (Cornwall) - they both look pretty good

What a nice early Xmas present one of those would make :thumbs:

Do we think £8.5k is a little rich for an LE at 78k miles?

Looks to be a clean example but can’t sork out if over priced or not.

It’s a 12 hour round trip for me to Cornwall so need to be fairly certain beforehand ...

if it's a 12 hr round trip - extended warranty from the garage won't be of much help to you... so I think you will have to work on the price -
However you need to ideally do this over the phone before hand - as he's not going to drop the price when you have travelled for 6 hours - because he will know you will be driving away with it, so unfortunately you are not in the best situation to get a cheeky deal, that and the fact he will know if you are desperate for an LE, then there are less than 5 for sale, and especially one with lowish miles and great service history.

sometimes you just have to pay the asking price to get what you want.

If you want an LE then you will have to wait a long time for a low mileage car to come up cheaply- you cant have everything with a car as rare as these.
