    I'm about to sell my BMW 1 Series - don't worry, I've already got a newer, shinier 3 series

    I have a rather fancy body kit on the car which, I understand, is a BMW dealer-fitted kit. It seems to be quite rare (I don't recall seeing any others). So, it would be handy if I could put that as a selling point.

    So, can anyone tell me:

    - What this kit is?
    - Anything about how rare it is or how pricey it might have been to fit?

    Hope someone can fill me in

    Well, that's the thing. That's what I was told by the dealer, but when I searched for info on Aero pack for 1 Series, all the images of the cars I saw looked completely different.

    Lol if the dealer said aero and then neal too then I'm pretty sure its an aero kit I'm guessing your figuring out what you can add onto the price... I'm not sure you will get an awful lot more as its a buyers market at the mo. Looks sweet though
    Things to do:

    Buy a petrol fuelled BMW again

    To be honest, I'm not adding anything on to the selling price, it's more that I want to big up the kit as something of a unique featreu; I'd just like to know what to label it as.

    As for the dealer telling me it was an Aero kit - he didn't really know, asked a colleague who didn't know then disappeared for 5 minutes and came back with an unconvincing "It's an Aero", hence me wanting to double-check. And when I couldn't see anything online that tallied with it I had to dig deeper.
