Re: Sale Dilemma

Drivers side bolster is good just could benefit from a good feed and maybe a little bit of dye.
Wheels need a good wash. Rear tyres need gunk washing off as they are new.

Re: Sale Dilemma

Oh I do still enjoy it. But if I drive it tends to be work related between London and Manchester usually 3 to 4 times a week. My daily takes the brunt of this rather than the zed.

It is a toughie and I agree it is a shame not to use the car more often though I am careful to ensure it is periodically warmed up and moved to ensure everything should be as it should.

There is someone selling a white z3m on Facebook with about 95k on the clock. Comes with matching hardtop and looks very clean in and out. White is quite a rarity and they are only asking £6.5k which is mega cheap in anyone's books.

There was someone on here selling a M for £5k not long ago. High mileage but seemed a nice example.

I may get shot for this, but........ why a 2.8 or 3.0? Why not a M.

And in all probability, a M would ap...

Just curious if anyone has had complete engine failure on a S50. And if so did they repair and what was the cost.

Just curious as it is always back of mind as I've heard horror stories and with an ageing car it is a worry.
