The time has come to part company with my 123d, I have a company car now and will probably replace it with something special for the weekends. It's a Sparkling Graphite 5 door manual having done 71,000 miles registered June 2008. Technically the car has had 3 registered keepers Bmw, my father and I. Fastidiously maintained with a full BMW service history and extended warranty. I have a folder of receipts of everything ever done to the car. The car has always had Bridgestone Potenza RFT tyres, the current set have approximately 4-5mm at the front but the rears will need replacing, this will either be done before is sold or factored into the final price. In June 2014, at 62,000 miles, it was noted that the timing chain had early signs of 'rattle', as a result the vehicle was taken in through BMW insured warranty and was fitted with a new chain and guides. It was also noted that the flywheel bearing had leaked grease onto the flywheel causing premature wear, as a result of this the flywheel and clutch have been been completely replaced, the total bill of this work coming to over £5000.

Bad points

There is still a small panel gap between the front bumper and wing (refer to previous post). I am told the bumper just needs to be reseated. The under tray however has been completely replaced.
The front bumper itself has a few stone chips, inline with the cars age and mileage.
Three of the alloys could do with a refurb.
Two very small scratches, one down the passenger side rear door and the other on the skirt below (refer to picture)

I will be advertising the car at £8,995 but I am open to offers.

Car is located in North West London, UB6 postcode.
