Hi Guys,

Thanks for the links. I really dont want to go up to a 3.0L car, id say a 2.5 is all id be willing to go up to. Do you guys think the 530's are better than 525? The 37k car looks good i actually have that bookmarked. I live in Cork so need to take a trip to dublin to view.

Only have the one pic to hand from the phone, forgot to mention it also has the silver cude trim, front and rear PDC and the Xenon lights are adaptive lights too, so they turn the corner with you :D

The car seems really well looked after. Where are you located? Dublin? Im from Cork.

You already know the only drawback i see with this is the interior colour but for the sake of getting a well maintained car id probably have to give up my hopes for that interior.

Hey Kceire,

Thanks for the reply I've been searching donedeal and carzone none stop and I've seen this car.Id be willing to budge on most of my requirements (especially if it was a BMW members car) but all I've ever had is silver cars, im just sick to death of them, couldn't buy that one.


Is there any other place to look for cars besides donedeal and Carzone? I've checked CBG as well but never seems to be much on that site.

I also got stung a little as i was buying a BMW 523i privately in Dublin a month back and the guy told me his car was never crashed. I got AA to check it before i went up and the report didn't come back good. I know its not a waste of money but considering i didn't buy the car it did cost me €300. So im a little weary of buying privately unless its in Munster (where my dad can check the car) or a dealer in Dublin (so i have some comeback) also if it was a member here id have no issue in buying the car as id know it was well looked after.

Are you buying direct? (no trade in)_ did you look at an import from the UK?
should find something with the spec you want


thanks

Well im open to either. I have my budget straight cash but i do currently have a crappy Toyota Corolla '99, not that i imagine that the dealer would give me much for it.

My friend has suggested that, again because of getting stung before im a little hesitant about it. Could you recommend some sites, i had a brief look at Auto trader over the weekend.
