    I gave away for FREE a 1.8 Beemer that was badged as a 1.6 - Very, very rare. The guy that took it wrapped it around a lamp post 4 days later. Bloody annoying.

    It would be cool to see the issues of the car fixed, service done and afterwards get the most effective tuning. It’s a diesel so renap tuning would make it feel swiftier. Or- just drop in a shorter diff that you can get from a 520i manual (3.64 ratio). Endresult should be a swiftier, cleaner version of what you have now.

    Unreal man! Easily a $5,000-7,000 car in the states. And for that price, it would be leaking everything from everywhere, need a full suspension refresh, & 50% of the electronics would be trash.

    Joker this guy when he said its worth £400 even if it don`t move. Yes In parts maybe but not as a whole car. And if it drives he thinks £800 Live in the real world not the fake you tube edited videos people know what cars are worth. I guess you actually paid alot more than £150 for the car thats worth very little in a attempt to gain followers. And then make alot more money from advertising.
