Finally back in a beemer!
Had to scale back my ambitions a tad due to other unexpected expenses, but managed to bag a 2007 LCI 530i Sport, full BMW Service History, last owner had it for 6.5 years!
It's carbon black, paintwork in great condition, obviously well looked after for its 76000 miles.
Got the Sport spoiler, Pro Nav but little else.
Sat on 19-inch Spiders which have just been fully refurbished and look box fresh (although he hasn't replaced the roundels or the little ///M stickers, which I will do)
Just had brand new pads/discs all round too.
Overall, very happy... lovely 2 hour drive back home, forgot how great these cars are... and the extra few ponies over my previous LCI 525i are very welcome.
Plans are to:
- Finish the wheel refurb by fitting new roundels and...
