Mmmmmmmmmmmm Cat D or con?


Even if Cat D and repairable seems cheap. I thought cars that were cat D commanded about 75% of 'normal' price?

The cheapest Z8 I have seen recently is just under 70K.

Is that a Premium Rate phone number too ?

Advertise the car for a few weeks and rake in the money from the calls..........'Sorry, the car is sold' would be the likely answer.

Just send him an email, you want to buy the car and if he is in the area you can come the next day and run a check on the reg RE02VJM.

Z8 Roadster

If anyone really wants a Z8 for a reasonable price, we have quite a few out here in the UAE - all low miles as mainly bought for collections or status symbols - and relatively cheap compared to Europe.

Naturally, they are all outstanding condition. You need to ship at around £1000 with a reputable specialist transporter from the UK port to port and fully insured, and then a few small adjustments to made UK road legal.

I am thinking of brinking one back myself if I ever sell my Z1 as the Z8 is the next baby!

Price range is?

Would you happen to have any links where these cars are offered in UAE?

Cheap Z8

Hi Chris,

I'll get you the prices for the ones that are currently available over the next week or so.

The used car market in Dubai works a little differently than many, in that although the cars may be with 'dealers' they are really acting as brokers for much of the expensive stuff, and the vehicle plates are taken off and kept in the drawer to give the impression the car has been de-registered and is ready for sale. Not illegal, but means the dealer won't spend lots of money advertising the car.... as the owner might take it back or sell it himself.

Anyway, we have over 200 independent used car dealers with a large number of specialists, and within those there are a few Z8s lurking - so I'll do some legwork and come back to you.

I'll also check with the BMW specialists as they also often know of cars that could be for sale - if there is a willing buyer!!

By the way, I'm a motor trade consultant - so it's easy for me to find out alongside my day job.

Update !

Post by andrewmason » Sun 27 Sep, 2009 16:58

Hi,

1. Did anyone buy this because I used to own it, and I have the spare key/black key if the owner wants it.

2. Does anyone remember what the asking price was.

3. Does anyone know who bought it.

Thanks.

Z8s in the UAE

Post by Dexter » Mon 28 Sep, 2009 20:16

It's been some time since I posted an update on here as very few Z8's have been on the market, and all of a sudden we have two - one with only 4,000 miles on the clock... I'll get prices from the traders for those who are interested in the next couple of days...

You could contact BMW, they are probably still servicing the car.
