UK M635CSi #500 fs on eBay

Post by Pod » Sat Jul 07, 2018 3:03 pm

Can’t copy eBay ad as on mobile ‘phone.

For sale as “buy it now” for £100k. Sounds a bit expensive with 153k on the clock, but apparently has been restored a few years ago.
Anybody know the car? Thoughts?

£100k, really? how are these worth anywhere near that? are prices being artificially increased? it' been restored too, I thought everyone was crazy about originality these days..

The owner first introduced himself and this car here on the forum in 2009.....

As for the absurd figure of £100k, I cannot believe for a moment that he's genuinely looking to acheive that. Presumably that figure is just an attention grabber.

I read that old thread with interest. Really miss Horsetan’s postings!

I wonder is this the car. Posted on ML's facebook page during the week. Apparently it will be for sale soon with them.

The ad does say that the car is being driven down to a marque specialist in Sussex for inspection and discussion about sale.

Good spot. Too coincidental to be anything else, surely.

I note also that the owner put this car up for sale just over two years ago - again on eBay. Asking price then was £25k.

Having looked at its MOT history, only some 7,000 miles in the past 12 years, one can see that it has suffered the “usual” E24 problems. Many, probably due to lack of use and of course the high mileage. I can only surmise that it must have had substantial ££££s spent if the owner thinks its worth £100k. Let’s see if ML front it and at what price. That should tell us all we need to know.

Well, the ebay listing ended about a fortnight ago. No sign of the car up for sale with ML, so possibly they have it in their workshop for a spruce up :-k
