For sale is my 2007 BMW 130i Limited Edition on a 07 plate, first registered August 2007. The car is number 106 of 161 and is on 116,000 miles. It has 4 previous owners.

I have owned the car since Feburary 2020, and I’m reluctantly selling it due to the lack of use mostly down to the arrival of my second child.

Equipment

All 130i LE's were finished in Carbon Black with Boston Lemon yellow leather. Specification of note:

BMW style 216 wheels (made by BBS; only available on the LE and the 320si)
Xenon headlights with angel eyes
Electric seats with driver side memory function
CCC sat nav
BMW Hi-Fi speaker system
USB / Aux input
Front and rear parking sensors
Auto headlights / wipers
Dual zone climate control
Auto dimming rear view mirror
Dipping near sider mirror when reverse is selected


In my ownership I have had cruise control and power folding wing mirrors retrofitted (I will give the buyer the previous wing mirrors, which if they want can put back on and sell the power folding ones).

I would describe the exterior of the car in good condition for its age. There are certainly some marks/scratches on the paintwork, most of which I think could go with a 3 stage polish.
As you can see from the pictures the wheels themselves are in ok condition. There is kerbing on all of them but some are worse than others.
The car had Dunlop sports all round but the two rear tyres will need replacing soon.

The interior is in average to good condition. As expected with a car on 116k miles the drivers seat has a fair amount of wear on it, the rest of the seats are pretty good. The steering wheel has had new trim recently and in great condition. The idrive controller has been upgraded to the one with shortcuts which is very handy, however the trim around it has seen better days. Also the gear knob leather is worn.
I unfortunately managed to break the lock knob on the drivers door when putting the door card back on after fitting the power folding mirrors. The lock works as it should apart from the knob stays down (looks like its always locked) and you wont be able to push it down. I have got a new one which I will give to the buyer, I just never got round to changing it.
Other than that its just slight wear and tear on trim pieces and mats.

Service History and Maintenance

The car has a full-service history, it is main dealer up until 16/02/2018 or 99,443 miles, from then it was carried out a specialist until the most recent oil change which was done by myself in February 2022 using Castrol Edge oil. As you can see from the pictures I have a whole box full of paperwork as evidence of lots of maintenance.

The car will be supplied with two keys. All books including the service book are present. There is no outstanding finance on the car and it is HPI clear.

I am located near Brighton. Test drives will require proof of fully comp insurance, but I am happy to take people on test drives.
