Finally got round to taking some pictures of the F this weekend, so here they are. Im having to sell her now as well, ive only had it a month and ive spent nearly 2k on it, but i need a bigger car, as ive just discovered a new arrival is on the way.....

Anyway, here she is:












What do you guys think i should sell her for? I paid 3100 for the base car, and ive spent the following:

£665 - Brown and Gammons :

Miltek stainless exhaust and decat pipe.
EBC greenstuff pads and vented grooved discs.
Water alarm kit.
K+N induction kit.

MOT and fitting of all the above at a local BMW specialist - £400 (failed MOT once on two bulbs and a corroded lower suspension arm - had replaced)

Team Dynamic Monza 17" wheels with TOYO proxes T1s 215/40 on the rear 205/40 on the front - £485

Clear indicator kit - £70

T bar with speakers - £70 off ebay.

Infinity reference speakers for T Bar - £40

Richbrook aluminium beesting arial - £20

six months tax - £100

Thats roughly 1800 quid spent in a month, so it stands me at 4800....Would you guys say 3800 is a fair price? or 3500 without the wheels?

I'd definately sell the wheels separately as they rarely bump the price up, maybe the radio as well. It looks very nice, but if I was a buyer I wouldn't be too interested in the bits you've bought recently so you want to be careful you don't overprice, if you want to sell fairly quick, what you paid originally seems about right to me.

Nice car, but as stated, you rarely get back what you have paid in extras. Just think of it as more reasons why people would consider yours.

I would put the original wheels back on as the 17s would put me off buying it. They look smart, but I would be concerned about the ride etc.

Anyway, why sell? A child seat will fit in the boot. Or you could fit one to one of those boot luggage racks. Some people give up too easily. :lol:

Clever.

Hmmm, maybe i'm getting too cynical in my old age.

------------

Good luck with the sale - the car is a real looker and it's always nice to see a good looking F on the forum :)

Will the tyres come with the wheels?

If so, I would definitely be interested, would give you mine too if you needed some to put on, Trophy Alloys with goodyears.

would 17's fit my trophy though?

I really like them, if we can't do a deal I would appreciate being put in the direction of where you got them!

Yeah the tyres would come together, and i would appreciate some wheels in return. I bought the wheels a matter of weeks ago from rochford tyres if you want to check prices. i have the invoice stating £485 plus delivery.

17s fit fine, if i hit a decent bump then have caught oin the drivers side arch.....but i do weigh over 10% of the car...lol.....and i think i need a slight top up of the hydragas....let me know if your interested...

Told you i was getting cynical - should have given you the benefit of the doubt (sorry). My other previous comments stand though, nice car, good luck with the sale. :)

Oh, and welcome to the forum. :D
