My new 58 reg M3 coupe in Sparkling Graphite

Hey,

Just picked up my new M3 coupe from Elms BMW in Bedford. Its a 58 reg with only 12k miles on the clock and its in Sparkling Graphite. Loving the car so far. Its a very basic model with no extras but i'm not too bothered as i got it at a great price and i'm changing the wheels to 19" Avant Garde M310.

I'll post pictures of the car with the new wheels when i get them.

Cheers,

Ian

Nice car ianot, bit late now maybe, but I'd keep your standard wheels. Otherwise come trade in time the dealer will knock you for having aftermarket wheels

The wife took my car to work yesterday and managed to kerb one of the front alloys, I'm f**king raging with her.

Any good wheel repair places around south west London that someone can recommend. Was thinking about using wickedwheels.co.uk as the seem to do a good job and have got good reviews, they also provide a mobile service.

Are you sure it wasn't you

That's really bad news, but hopefully it'll put her off driving it

She's banned from driving it now and she'll be buying a new alloy if the repair isn't up to my standard...

Got the front wheel fixed yesterday by wickedwheels mobile service and I have to say they did a great job, I would highly recommend them but it was expensive at £72. The wife paid for it thought...

Hi All,

I’m selling my car (58 plate M3 in sparkling graphite with grey leather seats) if anyone’s interested. The car was registered in the middle of December 2008. I wasn’t planning on selling it until the end of the summer but I’m buying a house with no off-street parking so it has to go. I’m really fussy about my car and would go mad if someone scratched or bumped it while parked on a main street. At the moment its parked off-street and covered which is perfect. I also don’t use it that much either as my wife and I commute to work by train and only use the car the odd weekend hence the low mileage. I’m the second owner, I bought the car from Elms BMW in Bedford in the middle of September 2011 with only 12,400 miles on the clock. The car has only 13,300 miles on the clock now so as you can see I’ve done only 900 miles in 5 months. The car is in perfect condition and I’ve had no problems with it besides the lambda sensor being replaced by BMW a month after I bought it. The car is taxed until the end of August 2012. When I bought the car I also bought 19” CSL type alloys with brand new tyres. Let me know if you’re interested.

I’m looking for around 26,800k.
