Sad day for Chester. Great opportunity for someone. Great price even at >100k.

Yes I'm not looking forward to the day I have to part ways with that lovely 6 cylinder and that throttle response as it's NA. Still, she's got loads of life for the next lucky owner, and I may even return to another 6 cylinder in the near future. We'll see how the next 18 months/2 years go.

There suddenly seem to be a lot more Autos for sale.
Is this because of people getting caught out in the snow?
Or because their road tax is now due? £505 ouch..

£505? Why is an auto more expensive than a manual?

Mine certainly isn't £505 Image

Thanks for that, nice to be corrected on the actual numbers. That's a pretty small window to get the £305 rate rather than £520. I shall search even more carefully now.

LE's are £280. In this light a good selling point!

Noob here, looking for a 130i and have a local ‘07 FBMWSH Auto very close by on 109k. Anything I should look for given age and mileage? Thanks in advance.
