Yes I admit mine is poverty spec regarding options, but the basic spec is hardly poverty spec either!moulin12 wrote: ↑Fri Sep 21, 2018 8:34 pmThat seems like a good deal, though you have't said anything about spec.stag74 wrote: ↑Fri Sep 21, 2018 8:03 pmI bought my 2017 March build 6 months ago for £23.5K from BMW with only 3.5K miles.
So expecting £22 to 23K selling private, older car, mileage, i'd say no chance! Sorry.
Whilst options might not get you that much in terms of trade in, they do count in private sales. So, for example, I would be much more attracted to a highly spec'd 66 plate on 15K as opposed to a 17 plate poverty spec very low mileage one.
If WBAC is coming back as 18-20 on a 3 door 66 plate, then a highly spec'd 66 plate 5 door could get 22K on a private sale.
I look at it this way:
Pro nav. I drive my car not to sit in it watching a dvd.
Harmon whatever. I listen to Radio 5 Live most of the time.
Adaptive. Questionable either too soft or too hard.
Electric seats. Only me drives it.
Folding mirrors. It's not a massive wide 4x4
Parking sensors. It's a 1 series not a limo.
The only option I wish mine had would be heated seats.
I'm old enough when electric windows, central locking, leather, air conditioning, sat nav, and LED/HID lights were not even options or very expensive ones, and they are all standard on the M140i.
So for me, a lot of the options now are unnecessary fluff that are not missed.
