I didn't really think so but which ones you looking at making you think that ?

The price has dropped about £1000 since the 140 came out I think, that's the feel anyway.

I think the prices will hold steady for another year or so now however. The gap has closed too much between the M135 and the 130i.

I paid a little over the odds for mine at £6000 not even 2 years ago and now I'm only getting interest at £4500. It has the plateau at this price for a while. I don't think there's many straight cars out there an owner would let go for less as there is nothing to replace it in terms of value for money.

I have to say I'm surprised to see them for sale at sub 5k. The time of year plays it part, of course.

Exactly that; bad time of the year to be selling.

Have neither of these two cars been spotted yet? If I was still in the market for a 130 I would be on the case!

Hehe Octavius you are such a tease! :lol:

But lucky for me there are quite a few manuals for sale at the moment + not too many other people (that I know of) looking for a much scarcer auto

Wow that red 130i auto does look the dogs dangly bits don't you think!

Thanks for pointing it out roundasapound (not that you're biased on colour or anything ....... ?) :lol:

But hey that has got to be 1 rare little beasty don't you think - that mileage (48k) + that colour in an auto?

Having a think about it - its a bit over budget - I may need to live on jam + bread for quite a while ...... :D

That's about 2.5K over priced even though it's a very nice example.
