So, regrettably the time has come to part ways with what has been a fantastic car... A little bit about it...

2009 (09) E82 BMW 120D Coupe in Alpine White, I am the second owner. To the eye of Joe public, the car looks standard. But to any enthusiast, they will appreciate the very subtle modifications that have been made, all making the car look 100 times better, and as many have commented to me, as it should of come out of the factory. The number of comments I get on a regular basis on how the car looks so clean and subtle makes me want to keep it, but I can't justify having three cars with my new car due for delivery in March.

The car is so cheap to run, cheap insurance, I'm doing about 500-600 miles to a £50 tank of diesel.

I have had the car remapped by P Torque which returned 220bhp & 320lb/ft over the original 174bhp & 257lb/ft, which has made the drivability of the car so much better.

Spec includes;


- Carbon Fibre Lip Spoiler
- Carbon Fibre Rear Diffuser
- Gloss Black Kidney Grills
- Darkline Rear Lights
- Depo Headlights with HID's
- BMW 1M Competition Style wheels (Seen in second image, previous wheels no longer available)
- Puddle Lights under door handles
- Front & Rear Parking Sensors


- Full Boston Black Leather
- Factory Privacy Glass
- Start/Stop
- BMW Professional Radio to include shark fin aerial
- Phone dock in arm rest
- Aux Connection
- Bluetooth connectivity
- Comfort Package; Auto Lights, Auto Wipers, Auto Dimming Interior Mirror

It has just gone over 78k, which will increase as it's still in use for the commute to work. The car has Full Service History, with additional oil changes carried out between services (Always believed the BMW Service times were very far apart), and is MOT'd until March 2016 which it will fly through. Only real niggles that I can think of are the common steering wheel peel on the matte effect part, which doesn't bother me enough to do the well known simple fix, and there are stone chips which are inevitable with any second hand car, again doesn't bother me enough to warrant having the front end 'blown in' as the dealers call it.

It has been an absolute pleasure owning the car, and has always wanted for nothing. I've always run Goodyear Eagle F1's on the car since I bought it and have found them to last very well. I'll leave the photos do the talking, but it really must be seen to be appreciated!

You'll be hard done by to find a better, cleaner example than this, and for this I'm asking £9,995 ONO. (Reduced from £10,995)

There's inevitably going to be something I've missed, so any queries, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Price based on other adverts with similar mileage and less spec, but ultimately I am open to sensible offers as I would like a quick sale to free up funds for my next car. I have just put an order in for a new Audi RS3, which starts build in February for a March delivery which is the only reason for the sale... If I could afford to keep the BMW as a daily for work, I wouldn't hesitate as it's been a pleasure to own and drive.

Any questions, please contact me... And even if you think your offer is going to be a bit cheeky / low, make the offer anyway... Worst I can say is no :)

Hi - just to check (sorry if I missed it) - is this an auto or manual ?
Apologies, it's the 6 speed manual.

Flexibility in the price, had a delivery date for my new car... And I can't justify accepting the dealers peanuts offer for it as PX.

Some additional photos attached below... Price now Reduced to £9995

May have to look at putting it back to standard and selling all the bits seperate, so offers also taken on the following...

LCI Darkline Tail Lights
Depo V1 Headlights & HID's
Carbon Rear Diffuser
BMWP Kidney Grills
BMW 1M Comp Wheels (Swap for 261's plus cash)

If I can get guranteed offers on all of the above, then I'll return the car to standard.
